So I tried - I really did to keep up with blogging.  But other things got in the way. 

Like the holidays, hosting parties, working, playing with Charlie, finishing up grad school AND getting a new job.  So don't think I don't have lots of things to blog about.  Because we have been busy.  Unfortunately, the only other thing that time allowed for in these last few weeks is sleep.  

And I took advantage of sleep whenever I could!!  Who wouldn't!?

But here we are.  We made it to the flip side.

And we couldn't be more excited.

I graduate on Friday at 5PM.  My final paper for my capstone class is going to be turned in today.  And that's it.  I took my last final last night.  Last final ever.  And I ran home to put Charlie to bed and sat there with him extra long.  Because I could.  Because I didn't have to rush to study or finish homework or read.  Even though I had work to do last night - that is about to change too.

Yep, mama got a new job.  And I couldn't be more thrilled.  However, it was a very bittersweet feeling leaving my current company and in particular, all my friends and co-workers.  I mean, these people are real friends.  Friends that I have been with over all the changes in the last 5 years.  Which...believe me, there have been LOTS of changes.  Buying TWO houses, getting married, starting grad school, getting pregnant, having a baby and finally finishing grad school.  

Yeah, just a few things have happened in my time at Hallmark.  And like I said, my co-workers there were more than co-workers and I couldn't be more thankful for that.

But I'm ready.  We're ready.  For a change.  Something closer to home, totally different business, similar role...but a new challenge.  And hopefully some more time.  I seem to be all about that these days.  But really, who isn't?

So I'm back to blogging about little things, random things, funny things.  I have missed it and feel like this is such a cool space and I LOVE looking back on old random posts from years ago - so I'm dedicated to keeping up.  

Cheers to changes, new beginnings and more TIME friends!!!

PS And it's time to catch up with the holiday to-dos, like a PJ link up and getting my Christmas cards finalized and sent out and maybe clean my DIRTY house!!
