Merry Christmas!

This Christmas has been a whirlwind of travel that has only just slowed down before the next go round! I wanted to pause and upload some picts from this year's festivities. This is a pic that my wonderful Sis took of Dill in front of our tree! Lindsey and Evan were our wonderful housesitters while we went to South Carolina to visit Mr's Fam. It was my first Christmas away from my own fam and with Mr's. It was kinda sad to not wake up surrounded by my family Christmas morning but it was a whole new set of family traditions and dynamics! This weekend is my family Christmas and I am super excited!!! Two Christmases is better than one.
 Lindsey and I made some "creative" Christmas cookies!

 This is a cute little Christmas decoration that Lindsey got me at after Christmas sales. Thanks, best sis ever!

All the Fam came in this weekend for my graduation. It was a great weekend to see everyone and get graduated!

 Of course most of the grad picts of me in my regalia are grainy... donno. But here is the dipolma to prove it! 
Modeling the hood. 

Now I am off to hibernate (study) for the week so that Friday I can add the PA-C.

So much to be thankful for...

As the year wraps up, I must write and say that this year more than most are so many tangible reminders of how much I have to be thankful for.

This time next week I will have graduated with my Masters! I can't believe that almost three years have gone by since I started. To anyone thinking of undertaking grad school know this time flies so that is a big pro for doing it. Also, I can't believe that I got married during grad school. (More evidence to me that you can't predict how your life is going to go...)

Anyway I will be getting graduated with my lovely wonderful family around me. The first of January we are heading to Indonesia for the first time with the Hubbies which will be an adventure. And then when we get back I should be starting my new wonderful job! (more on that to come in a later post but lets just say dream job...)

My lessons for 2011:
-Go with the flow but do your best
-Let the little things go
-To want less
