I know. I'm a terrible person and haven't blogged in FOREVER! but I have an always.


Yay! and I haven't blogged about it because 1. I still don't have internet at my house and that does make things extremely difficult. 2. I had to move all my furniture back from Chattown to Nashville. and 3. Today is my first day and I finished my work early and am waiting to see what else I can do, so I'm keeping this short and sweet, but at least now y'all know I didn't die or drop off the face of the planet.

I'm not going to give a lot of details on where I work, but I'm in fundraising and so far love it! They're already giving me free stuff (like a Volunteer Traditions koozie and hat! ummm LOVE).

I got one in white. I wanted navy (like the one Reese Witherspoon has), but they were only giving out white, orange, or khaki. Yeah, orange and khaki would not look great on blonde me. 

and that's the koozie I got in mint :)

If y'all like what you see from Volunteer Traditions, click here to go to their site. They have a ton of really cute stuff and not just products that represent Tennessee, but also Texas, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Florida....okay, you get the drift, every Southern state haha so go on over and take a peek.  

I can't even begin to put into words how much God has blessed me. You all know how worried I was about finding and a job, and I felt like each time I turned around I was getting rejected, but God had bigger things in mind for little ole me. He wanted me here and opened this door and I can't wait to see where it leads in the future. 

So whenever any of you are feeling stressed or discouraged about finding a job or anything else, just remember that He has a plan bigger than you could ever imagine. Just have faith, pray about it, keep an open mind, do all that you can do, work hard, and I promise He will take care of the rest in His own timing. 

But that's some of what is going on with me. I promise not to be a stranger anymore and will keep you updated on my first big girl job and everything else that is going on in my first year as a freshman in life....and let me tell you it is quite an adventure so far!

Have a joyful Monday!
