Seasons of LOVE

hey out there!

I come to you after a long break from blogging... I want to start this blog post by paying tribute to my late Grandmother who passed away on January 29. Mema was an incredible woman who lived a long life of fulfilment - anyone who lives to celebrate their 91st birthday can certainly say the same. Although Mema will be missed greatly, I know that she is in a much happier place now, dancing with Papa up in Heaven...

I hope that everyone had a great Valentine's Day! I, myself, spent the day of love with my husband & his family and friends on the streets of Mobile - celebrating JD's favorite holiday, Mardi Gras!! Amongst the beads, parades, & Moon pies, we were able to get in a nice sushi dinner to celebrate our love - so nice!! > It's always a treat to spend time with my in-laws & this Mardi Gras was no exception!

In other news, I've got a birthday coming up! Next Tuesday will mark the 26th year of my life & I am looking forward to getting together with friends & family to celebrate! Mom & Dad are coming over from Social Circle this weekend for some pre-birthday fun - Mom has even agreed to bring the 'fixins to make my favorite dinner - her chicken pot pie :) YUM! Then the following weekend JD & I are taking a trip up to Nashville, TN to visit with some of my FAVORITES!! It will also be the weekend before my bestie, Sarah's, birthday - so I'm sure we'll be doing plenty of celebrating there too! Nashville - I hope you're ready!

JD is getting ready to start his first term at Troy University in the middle of next month. I am so proud of him for working so hard to pursue his degree - I know it's been tough for him to balance school, work, a family, & hobbies, but he is doing great!! He is definitely an inspiration for me to go back to school...

I have volunteered to hold an Officer position for the Birmingham Area Phi Mu Alum group for the coming year - tonight is our first Officer meeting & I am looking forward to seeing what's in store for me! I have been looking for ways to be more involved in groups outside of work and home & I think that this will be a great group to work with!

Work continues to be busy for me, so I'm afraid that this is all I have time for...

Until next time...

peace & love
