Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen.
I guess it's officially here since I got a good helping of black eyed peas, greens, and corn bread today. (Props to Mama for an awesome meal.) This year is gonna be HUGE. I really can't believe that all these changes are about to take place in my life, but I am so excited to see what God has in store for me. 

Next week I officially begin student teaching. Did I just say that?!? I'm so pumped to be able to spend the day with my 4K classroom. However, rude awakening... 5am 5 days a week is gonna really kick my butt. 

I graduate in May. I repeat. I will be a college graduate in May of THIS YEAR. Wow. 

I'm pretty sure that God is leading me to begin my Master's work after graduation. Challenging, but something I want to get done before I decided to have children. 

I will officially begin a teaching job wherever God sees fit for me. I plan to teach preschool while getting my Master's, and then teach public after I am finished. We shall see. 

My baby brother will be turning 16 this year. Where does the time go? A junior in high school... seriously? 

Benji's sister will be having a baby in July. Also my birthday month. Lots of excitement there! I can't wait to see this baby grow up! 

I feel confident that this is the year that all of my sweet boyfriend's hard work will finally pay off! 


As if you can't tell, I am anticipating the best for 2013. I'm up for any surprises God wants to throw my way. Most of all, I want to draw closer to God this year than ever before. I want to show Him how thankful I am for all the blessings in my life. 

Trust and Obey. 
Happy New Year
