I've been living in Kansas now since November 2014, and have not taken the time to update this blog at all. Shame on me! The good news is, life is GOOD! I'm happy, healthy, and well loved.
Quite a lot has happened as I've settled into my Kansas nest. We've travelled, explored, and in April 2015 we brought our sweet Emmy into our lives. Emmy is a Yorkshire Terrier who brings joy to all who meet her. Patrick and I have been building our life together and it has been a blast. Those who follow me on Facebook or Instagram have seen that we spend a lot of time on the lake during the summer. We've also made numerous trips to St. Louis to see Patrick's family, Minnesota to see my family, and several pleasure vacations - California last summer, and Cancun, Mexico this March. Such fun!
I'm wrapping up my second semester at the University of Kansas' School of Business. It's been a challenge, but one that I aim to conquer! My last day (for this semester) will be May 11th, and I've pretty much decided to take the summer off...time will tell for sure.
I'm working for Walgreen's Pharmacy and passed the National Pharmacy Technician Exam on April 12th. This spring has been a rather heavy load, but I was able to find the necessary balance to make it through without suffering a complete nervous breakdown (at times, I felt close).
It hasn't all been "happy happy joy joy," of course. I have a young cousin who is in the midst of a terrible battle with cancer, and my childhood best friend was also recently diagnosed with cancer. We're waiting to hear any news for Emily - fingers crossed that all is positive.
On that note, I'll close this entry.
Chins up, smiles bright.
Sending love to all.
