I am so happy being married and living with my best friend. We adopted our first child, Ari, in 2011 through a domestic adoption and our second, Jude, in 2014.

Back to School...

Well, it's 10:30 on Sunday night and Mike and I arrived back to OC about an hour ago. We decided to stay late in Tulsa to spend some time with our Small Group at Memorial. It made for a long, sleepy drive back here, but I think it was worth it. We really missed them.

Only two and a half weeks left of the semester. December 14th is my last day, and I am sooo ready for it to come!! I just want to be home again. Not necessarily because I'm tired of school and ready for the work load to end for a bit (although that is true!), but I'm just a big homebody and Edmond has never felt like home to me. I'm not a very big "social bug" at all. Somewhere between high school and college I became the person you would describe as "shy until she gets to know you." I don't know when it happened...it certainly snuck up on me. But it's who I am now. A shy homebody.

I know I'm young and I need to take advantage of these college years because they're the "time of my life." But really, college has never felt that way to me. I'm having fun and all, but all I really want out of life is to be married and living in Tulsa. I'm far too much like my brother! He got married at 19 right out of high school! At least I'm not doing that. I do enjoy this college time and experience I'm getting...it's just not what I've looked forward to the most in life. Being married and living in my own place (not a college campus) is what I really want.

Or maybe I'm just getting really tired of living with three girls... :)

I miss you already too! I can't wait to have you home when I don't have to share my time with so many others too! See you soon, very, very soon! :)

It's gotta be the three girls...

No offense to your wonderful suite-mates (or at least the one that I know).

Seriously, though. College, like any phase of life, has its advantages and disadvantages. I recall fondly having a good amount of freedom to use my time however I wanted (playing basketball for hours on end, even skipping class on occasion...), yet I had very little money, which limited the options of what to do.

Since graduating and working full time for the past 10 years, I find I have more money to do things, but less time available to do it (2 weeks of vacation vs. all summer and other breaks).

Enjoy the good in this phase of life. And look forward to the good in the next phase.
