Bridesmaid in '08. I really loved that hairdo.





With friends in '09, when I lived in DC.

Millions of Tiny Lights

It's no secret -- the last couple years have been really hard on me. I climbed to heights of weight I never thought I'd reach, simultaneously sinking into depression and anxiety over the fact that as I inch closer to my thirties, I find myself falling further and further behind where I thought I was going to be by now. The entire world seemed to be moving on without me, and I was frozen in place, watching it all happen while I aged without my own permission.

The entire world seemed to be moving on without me, and I was frozen in place, watching it all happen while I aged without my own permission.

I finally reached a point where that isn't working for me anymore. I began my journey again on July 10, 2013, and with that, I lit up a small hope. My goal, as it is (and as cheesy as it might sound) is to light up more and more with each passing day, until I'm surrounded by a million tiny lights that I've created -- enough to see my way again.

Thank you, Jami. Actually no one ever gave me a diamond before!
Wish you could have been here this last Sunday afternoon to dance to the reggae of the Earthtones. Local band but they're very good!
emoticon to you! emoticon

BIG HELLO TO YOU!
Glad you're back, whether you feel good or not...it's good to be here anyway!
Funny, I thought of you just the other day - AND every time I play Three Little Birds, I think of you. "Don't worry about a thing...every little thing's gonna be all right!"
I'm retiring on August 1st. emoticon
My successor is moving here from San Diego with her husband and baby son. It's very exciting! and I can't wait to be FREE in a manner of speaking.
Whenever you feel like sharing, I am here. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm doing well. One more year until retirement. Taking the choir to Italy after Christmas. Forming a search committee to look for my replacement. How about you? 362 days without a status update has got to be some sort of record! emoticon
