My Summer so far in a nutshell

Saturday, August 24, 2013

Hello again for the millionth time!
     Like always, work has been hectic. These past couple weeks I have been working almost every day at the store which I love. Its fun working in retail because it allows me to help others feel better about themselves. Its always great to put a smile on people's faces-and why not create a smile on someones face while making them fabulous at the same time? It sounds like a double whammy in my opinion. Maybe I'm just a total cheese ball though. Just maybe :)
      Before I head off to Disney (which is soon-I'm super excited!!!) I have completed some more tasks on the list. I do have to admit that I didn't do as many as a planned but that's what life is. Some tasks you can complete while others are harder to do. I am honestly though surprised at which things I was allowed to cross off of my bucket list and which ones I still haven't been able to. Here's the list so far:

   I most likely will not have time to complete the rest of the list because I am starting school after I return from Disney. It has been a great summer. I think this list has a part to do with it. It allowed me to stay focused and motivated, while still having fun. I'm going to try to do something similar to this during the school year (on a smaller scale though of course). I can't wait to see what adventures lie ahead of me this fall. Since the creation of this bucket list, I have had the opportunity to open so many doors. This just goes to show you that you can set out and reach your goals. I hope you all had a great summer and I cannot wait to share the next adventures I have in my life. For the meantime here are some links of my latest projects. 

As always,
