Valentine's Day

I had an absolutely wonderful Valentine's Day. It's actually the first Valentine's I've ever really celebrated. To celebrate, Walter surprised me and took me to TangoChicago where we had a group tango lesson and ate dinner. It was sooooo much fun and the food was delicious (yes, there was food that I liked!). I love to dance, so it was an incredible treat. Plus, it adds to the ballroom dancing lessons that we are already taking right now -- watch out "Dancing With the Stars"! Afterwards, we went to Ethel's Chocolate Lounge in Chicago for chocolate fondue. I can never resist chocolate.

I hope that all of you had a terrific Valentine's Day. Remember, the ultimate love is God's love for us. That alone gives us reason to celebrate!

Missed Me?

I know, I know, it has been a long time since I have posted anything. I apologize. I feel like nothing new has happened, but I guess a lot has happened since December.

First of all, I have a boyfriend. Those of you who know me have fallen over in shock, but yes, it is true. If you have any questions, you can contact me on your own time -- I'm not about to share about my relationship on my blog. However, I will let you know that we are taking ballroom dancing lessons. I know that I wrote some time ago that I really wanted to take lessons after seeing "Dancing With the Stars" (still one of my favorite shows). Now that I have a dance partner, I'm able to take lessons. It is soooo much fun! By the way, speaking of "Dancing With the Stars"...vote for Drew!

I am still on my adventure of faith concerning my job. I have been doing a variety of work for my dad, trusting God to make ends meet, and patiently waiting for a full-time position. The good news, it looks like it could be really soon. The even better news, God has taught me so much through this time, including the realization that there are so many things that I don't need (i.e. new clothes -- tempting since I work at Ann Taylor LOFT still). This "break" has also allowed me to have the time to develop friendships and other relationships with people. I am constantly being told how much happier I look and I feel at peace. God is good.

I know that there are so many other things that have happened, but I want to spread them out so that it seems like I am getting better at updating my blog. :) Just wait and see!
