75 degrees, dinning outside at the end of October!  
I can find some JOY in that!

Finding Joy ...

... in the simple things.  
Grad school is HARD! (no beating around the bush here).  Oh my goodness this is so hard!
I was sitting in a conference at Thanksgiving Point feeling completely overwhelmed and inadequate (par for the course these days but not like me normally).  This picture was the view outside the conference room.  I love this time of year.  The colors are beautiful, the air is crisp.  For the moment that I was lost in the scenery I forgot how stressed I was.  It was then that I decided that I need to focus on finding joy in the small and simple things if I am going to make it through this program a sane person. (kidding ... but only kinda)

Something Old ...

 I finally did it! (I have been talking about it for a couple of years). After 9 years I said goodbye to the Audi for something ...


It's really pretty and shiny!
I owe my brother Josh for making it happen.  He is pretty good at this whole car buying thing!
Is it just me or is buying a car one of the least fun, most stressful things to do?  Do car dealers REALLY think people are that dumb ... oh, are people really that dumb?  Is it weird that I was sad leaving the Audi at the dealership?
