Yes, It's been a while!

Holy cow, I've ignored this blog!  For good reason, though.  The last semester of Grad school was a doozy, along with working hard with this group of first graders this year, having a student teacher (which I LOVED and wish I would have done sooner, she was fantastic!), and spending any extra free time with my favorite guy (see pic below).   But guess what?!  It's now January, and I'm FINISHED with Grad school!  I don't get to walk until May, so it doesn't seem too real yet, but at least I don't have class at night and homework every weekend, I can actually focus on other things and read books other than textbooks, and spend time with other people!  My next focus is updating my resume, and start applying for jobs in Salt Lake area.  I'm taking a leap of faith because I'm ready for a change, as hard and scary as it makes me feel.  Change has always been hard for me, but has always been the best things I have done for myself, and I know that acting on my faith, it will all work out the way it needs to.

On another happy note, I spent my Christmas break in California!  Definitely much better weather than the below zero weather we have been experiencing here in Northern Utah.  Lots of fun at Disneyland, shopping at Balboa Island, and eating lots of yummy food!  Hopefully I'll have more pictures to come, but here is Bryce and I on New Year's Eve in Disneyland, so fun!

I decided this year not to really set a New Year's resolution.  I'm just going to focus on working hard, playing hard, and loving unconditionally!

I haven't blogged or done anything with this blogging thing for a long time either. I just clicked to see if you had updated and you did. Just thought I would offer if I can do anything to help you with the job hunt in Salt Lake, let me know!
