As the World Turns....

Things are always changing whether you like it or not.  Your world is evolving.  Sometimes the evolution is quite easy to see and sometimes, not so much.  Well the evolution at play in our lives is the fact that I've been offered a part time job at North Point Community Church.  If you thought I was a little fanatical about it before...just wait.

Seriously, it's an opportunity that is almost too good to be true. 20 hrs a week, pre-school provided for Jane, 8:30-1:30/ 3 days a week but best of all, working for an organization I'm so proud of.  I know, I ended a sentence with a preposition but it just felt right.  I really believe in this church and their mission and I'm so psyched to think now I get to have a hand in making it happen every Sunday.

So, maybe you can have it all. This blog provides me an outlet for my love of watching a house become a home, my job will provide me an opportunity to work in an environment so close to my heart and my faith and all while still being wife and mom....the two titles I cherish the most. Life is good. Somebody should make that a shirt, bumper sticker, water bottle, etc.

As for the flowers, those are courtesy of the Bread Winner. My excitement is his excitement and he's always so thoughtful in recognizing the successes, big and small. For the record, Jane got flowers too.  That's just how he rolls.

Good night, all.  Have a great weekend.
