We are just back from a weekend long, low-key celebration of my favorite recent COLLEGE GRADUATE! It hardly seems possible that 4.5 years have passed since we dropped her off on the other side of the state. But that time and distance created the space for a beautiful transformation. In just a matter of weeks she’ll be moving back to Fayetteville, into her own place, and embarking on the next chapter. It sounds cliche… but I cannot WAIT to see what the future holds for my girl!
I am a work in progress. Right now I am concentrating on learning to juggle - not balls or flaming batons but the really hard stuff: family, home and career. This blog chronicles some of that . . . I didn't set out to be a blogger. Back in 2005, when I worked for the local chapter of the American Red Cross, I had a crazy experience I call "Runnin' from Rita." I had to write it down in order to "get it out." I chose to get it out online. Fast forward 15 months, and I decided to post my annual Christmas letter online. The rest, as they say, is history. So here I am 13 years later . . .still capturing the occasional funny moment or deep thought, all in a very inconsistent manner, and with lots of . . . (dot, dot, dots) and (parenthesis) and "quotation marks." . . .You'll get used to it.
