A photo of Alec and I after his graduation, taken in the back yard of our first apartment.
First of all, I want to say Thank You to everyone that read and commented on my heartfelt, venting post last night. Your encouragement means the world to me and I'm so glad to have you all as readers. Unfortunately, I switched back to blogger comments because I was sick of Google+ not letting people comment unless they had google accounts. This means that all of the comments I have received while using Google+ have disappeared. (sad face). Sometimes I just sit here and start writing and begin to think that nobody will really care how my day at the lake was. Turns out, that is what blogging is all about. Lifestyle blogging, especially. Sew, I'll keep on keepin' on. I'm glad you like my completely random post topics because the thought of narrowing my blog content down to one type of hobby just makes me cringe. I've got far to many interests for that.
Now on to say how very fast summer is moving along. Can you believe it is already August? I'm sure this is how ever July wrap up post begins, though. My favorite part about August is that it is my birthday month. I'm turning 20 this year. The big two-oh. Kissing my teenage years goodbye (and good riddance). I've learned a lot and I'm ready to learn more.
Everything is really coming to a clean closure at the end of this month.
First of all, Alec finally got a job!
He has been working construction the past two months and going to job interviews since he graduated this past spring. I had a great feeling that he got a job and when he called me from the interview an hour away I answered by blurting out, "Did you get the job?!" He happily told me that he did get it and I proceeded to have these peanut butter cookie sandwiches made up for him before he arrived home. He will be starting his career in the next few weeks and I couldn't be more excited. It feels great to finally have our own apartment and to have him working full time at a reliable job. Three years ago when we were celebrating our relationship from different states seems like forever ago. We've come a long way and I love every moment of it.
Secondly, I picked up my scrubs for school today. After putting on all my brand new scrubs and draping my pink stethoscope around my neck, I had a moment when I looked in the mirror and really felt "grown up". Time just flies by and now I'm training for my own career.
I also am finally getting a few days off work to read, write a story I'm working on (eeek!) and relax for once. It is positively rejuvenating and I'm loving every moment.
Now for my favorites from July:
I learned to can strawberry jam with my mom.
Finally did some sewing and made some fabric book covers.
Ventured out and discovered "The Amish Mall" with my mother.
Went on a nice picnic at the beach with my man.
What did you do this July? Are you ready for August?
