new places + faces

It’s almost the end of summer- well at least for some of you. Here in Florida, not so much. We have at least a couple more months of hot weather. Boo!

A lot has changed in the last couple of months. Moving to a new city. New job. New Apartment. Moved in with my boyfriend. It all happened so fast and blogging has been put on the back burner in the midst of all this madness. Good madness, but really it has been an adjustment. I’m a nanny for a new family and miss my niece and nephew so much. But who wouldn’t? I had a pretty good life nannying for those two! My new family has a lot to live up to. 🙂

But..change is always good!

Those tears that just come unwelcome and at the drop of a dime. I was very thankful for one thing today: that my town offers a woman’s only gym. It is perfect for times of emotional instability!

Today I said goodbye to a very dear friend. A farewell to her and her three girls (and a fourth on the way!) that I have known for nine years. She has been such an amazing influence on my life. Knowing this day was approaching for months..I wanted to do something very special for her. I scoured Pinterest for that perfect gift. Here is what I came up with:
