Changes

“Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.” –Jim Rohn


Mr. Rohn, I couldn't agree with you more. 

I came across this quote when I was at a cross road in life and felt as though it was speaking to me..  Basically it was time to (excuse my language) 'shit or get off the pot'. I have never been one to deal with change very well and was happy in my comfort zone. I've never been one to take huge risks either but something clicked and it was time to do something. I had two choices....

                                          1) stay at the same job I had been at for the past 11 years, live in the same town I had pretty much grown up in and try to make best out of what I had
                                                               OR 
                                           2) venture out to try something new while trying to repair a relationship with a guy I had been dating FOREVER off and on. 

I decided on the latter.  It was time to grow up, be a big girl and make my own decisions and choices in life. I  figured if I could handle and get through cancer then I could handle anything. So I decided to take a risk...leave everything I know in California, and head out east to Ohio. I had made the choice to 'get off the pot'.  It wasn't easy but it needed to be done and it gets a little easier day by day being out of my comfort zone while trying to make a new one. 

I've been away from my family for a little over a month and tomorrow I will be flying back for my cousin's wedding. I'm super excited and can't wait to see my sister, parents and most of all my little boo boo (I'm sure I'll be surprised how much he's changed and not so little anymore). I'm definitely counting down the hours.

Because my sister is the crafty paper girl, you will finally be able to see pictures of her work she is doing for my cousins wedding. From invitations, wine labels and much more so look for those coming soon!

With all that said, it's time for me to go so I can pack...I'm goin back to Cali!
