Happy Friday!

Just a snippet of happiness to kick off the weekend.
Jimmy + Billy Joel + the Lion Sleeps Tonight = Perfection in my opinion.

Palm Spring Break

This past week I created my own spring break and went down to Palm Springs with my mom for a few days. 
Palm Springs is a paradise of sorts. The sun always shines, the grass is always green, no one is in a hurry (probably because most of the population is 65 and older), and it just has a peaceful feel about it.
This week my mom and I played tennis, lounged by the pool, ate well, and relaxed. We also went to the Indian Wells tennis tournament one of the days, which I loved. 
There is nothing that makes me happier than watching Roger Federer win a match! 
My dad also joined us near the end of my trip. I feel so spoiled when I get my parents to myself. 
As I've gotten older I've really learned to cherish those times with them. They are my biggest fans and best examples and I just love them.
It was a beautiful week, and now it's back to reality.

Luck of the Irish

When February ends and March begins I always breathe a sigh of relief. 
It's a great accomplishment to survive those long winter months. 
This year March feels especially refreshing. 
This winter I have spent a lot of time thinking about where I am in my life, and where I truly want to be.
In the midst of all of these daunting thoughts it has been comforting to know that the Lord has a plan for me. 
While I may spend too much time worrying and wondering, I have never questioned the Lord's hand in my life. 
His presence is one of the things I am most certain of. I wouldn't trade one day of my life, and I know that is because I have been extraordinarily blessed.
As I enter into the month of luck I'm excited. I'm excited because I'm going to take a step out onto the ledge and trust the Lord and trust myself.
