I can't begin to explain my absence from this little space on the Internet. I miss blogging, I miss the interaction, I miss you all. I've been trying to get into the groove of the new position (which I'm still loving) and balance some new commitments, responsibilities and exciting endeavors.
As my re-entry post into the world of blogging, I think an update is due.
Last we spoke, I shared photos of my first Miami Heat game, my sassy but sweet Manchester Terrier Mix, Lulu and a brief introduction of my new job.
The highlights of April has got to be the epic BFF vacation trip that I took with my girls and my appointment to my city's Art Commission board!
San Juan, Puerto Rico was the perfect mix of adventure, relaxation and awesomeness! It was my first visit but certainly not my last! The entire experience was awesome and deserving of a post of its on so look out for that :)
The Arts Commission Board has been an awesome experience thus far! We are planning the 2nd International Kinetic Art Symposium and everything is coming together nicely!
The top three highlights of May was the celebration of four years with my boyfriend. We kept our celebration simple with a staycation of Miami Beach. Far enough to feel like an away trip but close enough to be a quick getaway!
The other highlight, was an opportunity to speak to one of my former professor's classes. I accepted an invitation to speak to the Administrative Law class about regulation, the administrative process and public administration overall. I loved it!! I feel so alive when I'm standing in front of a room talking about a topic I'm passionate about: public administration!
The last and quite possibly most amazing highlight was my best friend graduating from medical school! After 17 years of friendship, I couldn't be more proud of her accomplishments, her determination and her bright future. She is going to make an amazing doctor and I can't wait to see what God does for her!
Just a few months ago, I joined a wonderful church family and have enjoyed the fellowship. Being a Christian is above all about relationship. Relationship with Christ, encouraging brothers and sisters in Christ and sharing the Good News of Salvation and Hope for a hurting and lost world.
From pre- and post- church gatherings, pool parties, beach-side brunches and most importantly sharing encouragement and accountability.
For the past six months, the ladies of the church have been participating in a Secret Sister pen pal/gifting correspondence that I've been loving!!
Over the next couple of days, I'll expand on all of these highlights filled with photos, details and other fun facts!
Until next time,
