A New Start

This seems to be the only journal I haven't lost through the years. It's strange to look back on it and yet very fun. So much has changed since I set this blog up 4 years ago. Now, instead of starting college, I am one semester from being done with classes. I will major in elementary education and minor in spanish. I'm not sure if that is what I'll do with the rest of my life, but none the less, it's a great thing to fall back on. I'm still thinking about opening a restaurant one day. I love the buisness and feel like I really could succeed if I take the time to develop the plan enough.
Things with Matt are going better than ever... marriage talks are on the horizon, but I'm not rushing them. I think we're looking at next summer, but still taking life as it comes. :) He really is a great man. I can't believe the amount of patience he can have with me even at my crazy times. We've been having a lot of fun together and I'm even starting to try new things that I enjoy. Such as kayaking. :) We went up in Savannah about 2 weeks ago for our anniversary. It was amazing. Dolphins were coming right up to our kayaks... I was in heaven. I wish i had my camera, but the memories will have to be enough.
Right now, if I could change anything about my life I would realign my faith in God. The last year has been tough I guess with all the moving and such. I can't even tell you the last time we went to church. It makes me sad. Matt and I met under Christian principles and I think I've let that slip away. I want to do something to rekindle that. Maybe i'll run out to Target/Walmart today and buy us a bible study. I think I should. I feel like we are stronger as a couple, but in order to really make it work we need to invite God back in our relationship.

Please pray for our strength and discipline as we attempt to be "back in His arms again".

Matt and I took this picture over 2 years ago now. I can't believe it has been so long. :) I love that boy.

Another day

I'm upset that I have eczema. I know that's random, but my arms are SO broken out right now. It makes me feel so self concious, especially when it affects my face. Hmm... i don't know what to do. Today is my last day of work before the weekend of Virgina. I'm excited to go see Matt's family again. I really am starting to feel like more of an's good. These are random thoughts, but that's okay. Last night was good. Matt and I went out to the Cheesecake factory and then came home and played around for a little bit. WE always have such a good time beging goofy together. It's about time to go into work. I suppose I could go in a little early. Hmm... well more later.

It's been a long time...

It's been a long time since I wrote in this blog. I now attend Flagler college and am earning my degree in Spanish and Elementary Education. I still live in St. Augustine, FL. Close to my sweetheart Matt. It's very hard being so far away from my family and I really think that that is starting to become an issue in my life. I have to make a decision between the man I love and the family i grew up with. It's a strange feeling.
I just got back from two months in Costa Rica...where I learned a lot about myself and my character. i learn a lot of things about me that I want to change, but they will take effort to do so.
I am now working at Harry's Seafood bar and grill. Not the biggest fan, but the money is good and some of the people are very cool. I wish they swore less.
I think I'm going to try to write in this thing again. maybe nobody will read it, maybe that's for the best. All I know is right now I am searching for who I am in this world and where I am going...and writing may help me find that a little sooner.

Up to St. Augustine

WOW... and I move again! hehe.. I am now living in the apartment with Laura and Kelly. It seems like it will going to be a lot of fun. It's great living so close to Matt too..we'll save a lot of money in gas.
I got a job at Chili's. Orientation seemed to go very well today. I think I'll enjoy working there. I"ll know more after my first day of training...

Fun Times.

THE APARTMENT WORKS OUT!! I am moving to St. Augustine, where I will settle down for awhile in 10 days! I am so excited. I will finally be in the same city as my baby...and in a place where I can make friends that I'm not just going to leave in a month. I got a job at Bed, Bath and Beyond... so we'll see how that works out!
Things are great! Really... I am so happy right now I am beyond words.

I'm in love....

Wow, I haven't wrote in here for a while. Things are going good. There is a lot of decisions being made right now. Most of them minor in the grand scheme of things, but still stressful. I'm trying to move up to St. Augustine soon.. like next week, but it won't happen. It's so hard to figure things out sometimes. I love Florida. I'm having a lot of fun and finally starting to settle into things and make friends of my own vs friends that know Matt. It's a good feeling. I am in the process of moving my stuff to a different room in the's time consuming b/c the room is smaller... whateve. Things with Matt and I are going wonderful. I have no doubt that he is the one for me! What a crazy feeling! Now it's just waiting for the right timing. I need to finish school or at least get closer to finishing... I have decided to go for Elementary Education with Special Needs and ESOL. It opens up a lot of options so that is a good thing! Well I need to get to bed!
