everyday professional feature

April 23, 2015

I’m excited to be featured today on a new favorite blog of mine, Delaney Paige. She has a recurring feature interviewing professionals about their jobs and creative hobbies. Kind of a perfect fit for me! You can find me there today chatting about my job as a nurse, career advice, and how I fit personal projects into my life. Take a little time to check out her blog as well; we have so much in common that I bet you’ll love it like I do! Check out the feature here.

LIGHT : february

Here is this month’s update with my relationship to one little word (light). spiritual I feel kind of weird discussing my spiritual “progress” or lack of, since it’s a matter of the heart. I know that my actions matter, but I am not necessarily judged by them. Anyway, in the future I might leave this section off of these monthly updates unless I really have thoughts. For now I just want to note that Scripture memory is harder than it seems, and I still believe it all comes down to prayer (which I am not very good at). physical what’s been going well : I am done with long-distance races for now, and I’m pretty happy about it.

Today is my birthday! I am 33. I love the number 3 so I just know this is going to be a good year. And Meredith is excited because she thinks I’m the same age as her. ;) I wanted to do a fun post to commemorate the day. There isn’t anything special going on because I have to work and am going to Bible study tonight; and in fact, it was a terrible morning, the worst in recent memory and I already cried once (ah parenthood!), but I am trying to move past that. Last weekend we went out to eat at Cheesecake Factory with my family, my work had a birthday lunch for me yesterday with cake, and…

LIGHT : january

January 30, 2015

Necklace from this Etsy shop and I love it. I am one month into the year of living with the word “light,” and I wanted to share a bit about how this process is going for me. In our prompts this month (for the class run by Ali Edwards) we set intentions and there were some suggested categories to focus on, so that’s how I’m going to structure these update posts. spiritual what’s been going well : so far I have been keeping up with my scripture memory challenge (one verse every other week), volunteering to help out at church, being involved in our life group and my own personal Bible study. still weighing on me : here’s the thing.
