Home for Easter!!

Hi, Easter weekend! I’ve been waiting for you for a while. I am so hashtag blessed to have Easter off this year, and here I am traveling up to PA for the weekend to celebrate it in chilly Pennsy with the fam.   Ren loves a road trip. What’s been going on lately? Well in […]

I’m 29!

I didn’t really realize I was 29 until I saw it printed on a form today and I went, “Oh. That’s not right.” Then I got sad and realized, Oh, yes it is. Even though I have been calling myself 29 out loud for 6 months now, it still seems different somehow to really be […]

Marco

My mom and I had an incredible time on Marco Island. The weather tried to break our spirits for the first half of the trip… …so we entertained ourselves with the fitness center, a few hours of HGTV, and a film in a nearby movie theater (Philomena — SO good!). We went on one of […]

2014

Here we are, a new year. As usual, everything is different, but nothing’s changed! Except that this year, everything has changed, and I am just thrilled with the way 2013 shaped up. I am so blessed! In 2013 I finished nursing school, got a job, and met Someone. Big Year! Maybe 2014 could actually be […]

It is finished!

I did it! It’s over. I made it through 16 long, hard, grueling, is-this-real-life months of nursing school, and I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Georgetown! What a journey. I moved out of my life in the Big City. I made hard decisions, from where to apply to nursing school to […]

Meet the Sullivans

We did it — Someone met the family, the family met Someone, and the weekend just faded off into happy memories, sunsets, wine, laughter, and relaxation. I’ve never (in my adult life, anyway) brought someone home. I felt like it could easily be a scene from a rom-com: The Sullivans are kind of a crazy […]

Happy New Year

However cliche, I get pretty sentimental and reflective as years come to an end. An LNE search of “resolution” ¬†brings up quite a few posts about resolutions, where the years have taken me, and where I want to go. So in that spirit, I’ll close 2012 with a few musings. 2012: The good and the […]

For a New Beginning

For a New Beginning¬† In out-of-the-way places of the heart, Where your thoughts never think to wander, This beginning has been quietly forming, Waiting until you were ready to emerge.   For a long time it has watched your desire, Feeling the emptiness growing inside you, Noticing how you willed yourself on, Still unable to […]

Sad to see it go

Christmas is OVER? What? Again I’m forced to muse about time and its deceptive passing properties. Somehow not only is December nearly over, Christmas passed, and my time in New York running short, but also, it’s 2012?!?! Good. Lord. I find it appropriate to reflect on two of my more superficial resolutions that I made […]
