One Year Later

Before I bring you my regular blog post I have to tell you about my new favorite summertime drink!  It was inspired by the Strawberry Lemonade at O'Charley's.  I tried that a few months ago and LOVED it!  I had it again a few weeks ago when my mom and uncle came up to visit for my mom's birthday.  I was determined to make an at home version that was easy and quick.  It's isn't as banging as the O'Charley's version, but it is pretty darn good!

Pour half a glass of this:

And top off the other half with this:

Try it!  You'll like it!

Anyway...All over the news has been stories of how it has been one year since Michael Jackson died (and Farrah Fawcett- poor Farrah, she'll always be in MJ's shadow now.)

I remember when I found out about MJ's death.  I was laying out by the pool (on a weekday) and got the news on my phone.  Thinking about that day a year later made me think about how much has changed in the last year.

Last year I was laid off but getting ready to start a new job at the real estate office.
This year I no longer work at the real estate office and I am swimming in the deep end and feeling a little lost at my big new corporate job.

Last year I was in a relationship that I was still trying to get used to.

This year I really no longer talk to that guy and do not have not much desire to date...I hate dating and I don't even know how I would fit it in because I am so busy!  I just wish my husband would show up on my doorstep and sweep me off my feet!

Last year I was sad because I couldn't afford an annual summer vacation.

This year I'm still not taking a summer vacation, but I am going on the biggest, longest trip of my life to Dubai in a few weeks!

A lot has changed in just a few short months.  That makes me excited because I hope a lot more changes over the next 12 months!

How much has your life changed over the last year?

It's amazing how much our lives change in one year! You are so right- it makes the future that much more exciting, as we never know what will happen! Have a great weekend XOXO

I think it's amazing how much your life can change in 10 days :) let alone...a full year!

I was with a guy who I thought I was going to marry - I had a job fresh out of college and was a little scared and didn't feel like I was growing.

I am now dating (workin on that) and have a great job with some big opportunities! I got out of my comfort zone and am growing in a new area :)

Lots of good things!
