Merry Christmas to All!

While I can't wait to see what is wrapped up in all the presents under our little tree, I am most of all excited to spend the day with my love, my dog, and my family.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a loved-filled, good night!

Life's Work

"The object of living is work, experience, happiness. There is joy in work [...] There is no happiness except in the realization that we have accomplished something."
{Henry Ford}

After "graduating" on Monday with the completion of my last college final examination, I am moving on to the much anticipated, working phase of my life. I start today, and am excited to have a new role, and to accomplish new things in my work.

As I start my role as a working woman, though, I will remember that the object of living, in addition to work, is to experience life and happiness. I will spend time with Joe, walk Ollie, enjoy the holidays with family and friends, and find joy in my work everyday.

Most of all, I will find a happy balance between work and play. I will live a life of joy.

Fear Not

"Fear not the future, weep not for the past."
{Percy Bysshe Shelley}

Live in the moment. C'est la vie.

Hopefully by looking at, and reflecting upon, the little events going on in my life, I can slow down to smell the roses.

And so begins this blog.
