My dad's a celebrity :)

Here's a blurb about a program the company he works for just launched @ The Homestead in VA on the Roanoke news...

leap of faith + first dip.

"Of all the people I have ever known, those who have pursued their dreams and failed have lived a much more fulfilling life than those who have put their dreams on a shelf for fear of failure." 

"Why not go out on a limb?  Isn't that where the fruit is?"

"Never be afraid to try something new.  Remember, amateurs built the ark; professionals built the Titanic."

"Yes, risk taking is inherently failure-prone.  Otherwise, it would be called sure-thing-taking."
"Progress always involves risks. 
You can't steal second base and keep your foot on first."

that word makes my heart race with anxiety, yet motivates me to an unmeasurable level at the same time.

my husband & i have decided to take a risk.

when one door closes, one door opens.
for us, that door opened to an opportunity for my husband to change career paths.

i feel as though we have just taken our first step toward an amazing adventure.

with a GIANT leap of faith + many prayers we put all of trust into god & into each other.

on a lighter note,

Bent took his first dip in the pool this weekend & LOVED it!

For I know the plans...

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you."

Jeremiah 29:11-12

I took the plunge.

I took the plunge...

I'm back to being a working gal!

I will admit, the decision was quite easy because I get to bring this fella with me...one of the many perks of a fam business!

It feels so good to be back in the office...old habits die hard.

He'll spend some days with me here and some days with his Shu-Shu or GiGi.

Wishing everyone a good & productive day, as for me & Bent, we'll be hustlin' it!
...as my BFF put it this morning "there is not a enough coffee in the world today!"
