groove gettin

Snapshots of my days this week look a heck of a lot different than they did a week ago, that is for sure. Like a friend reminded me over China Palace today at lunch, going back to work after 8 weeks of vacation is like that feeling when you go back to school in the fall. It takes a few weeks to remember how to use a planner and when to go to what class. And man, I sure appreciated the diet coke today cause Chinese puts me in nap mode!

Trying to find my groove, still very thankful for a job and less than a quarter mile from home at that. I like it, the new job that is. It is challenging and a bit overwhelming for me to go from full confidence of what I was doing or at least the questions to ask to figure out what I should be doing to a whole new culture & priorities. I think 3 months, 6 months down the road I will be clicking along and think back on these first few weeks and wonder why I didn't give myself a bit more grace.

On a less deep, yet still important note, my fashion sense is trying to adjust itself to the culture of my new office. I am accustomed to my business dressy wardrobe during the day which is full of pretty basic and classic pieces and then my personal life wardrobe which is a few trendy pieces here and there but again, more of the basic pieces. The proper term for what I should be wearing now is "business casual" which would seem easy with what I have but the two categories I possess have collide and somehow I walk out the door dressed everyday, but not quite sure it is quite right.

A refreshing and much anticipated event took place this past weekend as well! Our annual TU girls reunion and I was SO happy to have my friends in MY house & my everyday life.

We did alot of we do best; ate, shopped, TALKED, laughed, walked. The connection stays the same while the conversations change as we continue to walk through life together. It always feels good to be with people who know you, who have seen your old college t-shirt (yeah, the grey TU one) since freshman year, know your stories and who continue to be part of that story. Love you girls and can't wait until next year! Luckily we don't have to because the countdown to January is on...
