Don't give up, don't ever give up

Today is one of those days I'm thinking deep. I'm sure many of you have watched the famous speech from the legendary coach Jim Valvano. If you haven't, then you is so inspirational and one of Ryan's favorite youtube videos to watch when he is feeling down. Beware if you are anything like me you will be sure to shed a few tears.

If I have learned nothing else since I've been living out here in the southwest, I learned how important family, friends, & faith are to me in my life. As I still search for that perfect career to make me both successful & happy, I realize at the end of the day all I am searching for is a way to have a fulfilled life with my family and my friends.

Being thousands of miles away from my family & the friendships I have cultivated has made me realize to enjoy every minute that you get to spend and share with these people. Don't forget to LAUGH, THINK & CRY everyday like Jimmy V tells you!

No matter what you are doing in your life right now or where ever you are, don't give up, don't ever give up.

Hello September

I would have loved to title my post today Hello Fall but I do live in the desert now and we have a couple more months of blazing temperatures. It is still reaching triple digits during the day and hopefully only another week of this nonsense. I can tell though that the evenings are beginning to really cool off. Imagine 75-80 degrees with no humidity. Talk about an amazing evening that always needs to me coupled with a glass of wine on our front or back patio.

This will be my first year not experiencing the Fall in North Carolina. I have an obsession with watching the leaves change colors. I believe Fall is the best season & we'll see when and if these desert trees and their leaves change colors? I am not holding my breath for that one though.

A lot has happened in my life over the past few months....

- Married the love of my life and have decided to share some of our wedding days pictures.
- Started my new career in real estate. I am working on a real estate blog & hope to teach people about the ins and outs of the market and learn something myself while doing this...I will share once I get it ready to be read
