Sometimes things don't always end up the way you planned. I didn't get my big girl job at 22 with no debt... single and ready for fun. I will get my degree at 26 after a messy divorce and some college debt. I get angry sometimes when I think about how that is.... What I could have done. Stressing over the 4 years that I'm behind. I try to put it into perspective and realize that I learned so much from 19-25. I learned humility, I learned to stand up for myself, I learned how to truly care for someone rather than just myself. I got a big girl job this year, while still going to college working 50 hours a week. I hated it. So I put in my 2 weeks with a company I've been with for 3 1/2 years. It was a huge decision, but for some reason as soon as I made it I felt a weight lifted. I felt excitement I haven't felt for a long time. I felt a drive and need to perform again. SO on November 9 I will go back to serving people. I will make more money doing this than any professional career and I will love it. I'm excited and nervous for the future all at one time. At least I don't feel like I'm stuck in a black hole with no feeling or drive. The place I am going to work at is called Walker's Bluff. It's fine dining like I've never done. It's a winery with outdoor ice skating in the winter, carriage rides in the fall, and some amazing concerts. I'm nervous and excited and this will be great experience for when I can go to culinary school. To check it out go to

The Pumpkin Patch

My best friend Jasper and I take her daughter Merritt to a pumpkin patch near my hometown every year. It's beautiful and has been featured in more magazines to count including Martha Stewart!

Everyone should take at least one trip to the pumpkin patch each year!
