Yesterday was my 1-year work-a-versary, but I didn't have time to post about it because I was . . . working.  Typical.

Here I am, 366 days ago -- peppy, nervous, and eager to get to work.

I remember the butterflies, and I remember thinking I had finally gotten to the part of my life where all the prep work (namely, 7 years of higher education) would start paying off.  I had crossed the finish line!  And now it was time to be the person I had been preparing to become!

I was happy.  And proud.

It's hard now to see past my email inbox sometimes, but I'm trying to hold onto that girl for as long as I can.  I like to think she's still in there, underneath the lawyer-speak and fancy new iPhone (YES that happened).

And for the record, those shoes are still the best work purchase ever!
**UPDATE:  on that note:  (Thanks Rachel!)

I can't believe it either! Time really flies.

And thanks -- I'm so glad you've been liking the posts! Maybe I'll just have to take another vacation so that I'll have more fun pictures to share...haha
