Hey y’all!
This is the happiest Monday that I’ve had all year! 🙂  We had our last school day with the kids last Friday, and we are in today for a workday.  Which means I am spending all day getting the rest of my classroom packed up!  I swear I probably have more stuff in my classroom than I do in my apartment.  I don’t even feel like I have a lot of stuff, but when you start putting it all into boxes it adds up!  I also spent a lot of my weekend getting my apartment packed up.  My wonderful mother is coming here tomorrow to help me get it wrapped up!  Crossing my fingers that it all goes smoothly!
If you haven’t noticed already, this Kate Spade purse is constantly on my arm in the spring/summer!  I am obsessed with the color!  I actually got it last year with some of our winnings from the Kentucky Derby! 😉  So it has a lot of good memories for me!  I linked one here and here that are really similar!  These jeans are probably one of the most flattering pair that I own.  For some reason, they are super slimming and make my legs look ridiculously long!  They’re under $80!  These earrings are also one of my favorite parts of this outfit!  They are only $12.99 and super lightweight!  I literally wore them all day, and they didn’t bother me once! 

I just want to take a minute to talk about something that I’m currently struggling with: change.  For me, change is very exciting, but not something I typically do well with.  Like right now, I am super excited to move to Raleigh.  I love the city and am super excited about being in the south.  However, I have grown majorly attached to my Columbus town.  My job, my coworkers, my friends, even my apartment.  It’s just been home for me for a few years now.  I am really sad to be leaving my friends.  We had a really great weekend together and will have another great one next weekend, but I am going to miss them like no other.  I am also super anxious about being further away from my family.  I am very close to them.  I talk to my mom every day.  Yes, I’m 27 years old, and still talk to my mother every day.  I love that right now if needed, I can drive home to see them in a few hours.  Now, it’ll be a few hour plane ride to go home to see them.  It’s honestly been really hard for me to deal with.  I was a blubbering mess at school on Friday saying goodbye to my kiddos, knowing that I’ll probably never see them again.  Actually, I’m tearing up right now just thinking about it.  With all of that being said, I am genuinely excited about this change. I just have to keep remembering, that we need change to happen in our lives in order for us to grow.  Deep breaths…  

Thanks for stopping by!  I sure do appreciate all the love and support! 🙂
