The Beauty of Life

"Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams." - Ashley Smith

 I stumbled upon this quote and found it to be really inspiring. I don't know anything about the person who said it or where it came from, but it reminded me of my Grandad. He loved to look around and just enjoy the scenery and beauty around him. Wherever he was, it didn't matter, he was always happy and having a good time. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him. Whether it's a pretty sunrise, or a child swinging, he's always in my heart.

I haven't done very good about blogging lately, but I've been so busy enjoying life that I haven't really been on the computer much. So, for the few people who read my blog, I thought I would post an update.

The spring semester is over, thank goodness! Now, I'm working on the last step to obtain my Master's degree, my internship. I found out in April that I would be able to complete my first choice of internship at the Lubbock County District Attorney's Office in the Hot Check Office. I couldn't wait to get started! My adviser told me I could start as soon as my classes for the spring semester were over. After the semester ended, however, I took a week off to go home and help my mom since she had surgery. Anyway, today is the third week of my internship. It's going great and going by a lot faster than I expected.

As far as wedding planning goes, I'm still working on it and hope to blog about everything very soon!
