Life is what we make it

A successful person is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at them…This quote reminds me of how my life has played out so far. By taking a lesson and learning from each brick that is thrown I grow stronger everyday.

The company did not approve my time off, however I have received an overwhelming amount of hugs, smiles, well wishes and life advice from friends and co-workers cheering me on. Now the adventure can officially begin, along with taking care of all of the tiny details (financial planning, finalizing tickets, hosts, volunteering opportunities, etc.)

I will be having a going away/fundraiser party on Friday, March 16th, 2012 in NoDa ( keep posted & RSVP @
I know it’s a little early to be sending out invites, but I wanted to go ahead & get it on everyone’s calendars 🙂

We’re gonna do it up right!! Getting everyone together t0 have one last big shindig before I head out. The party will be “Around the World” themed…meaning dress up in a festive outfit to represent your favorite country/culture. A prize will be given to the most creative.

Hors d’œuvres, wine & Refreshments will be provided. If you want something fancy bring it & we’ll grill it ~ BYOB
There will also be art, baked goods & other fun items up for sale to raise a little money for the trip, but no obligation. This is all for fun, all you need to bring is a smile 😀

There is limited parking within the lofts parking lot.
You can park @ the YMCA (1 block down on Davidson Street) 3025 North Davidson Street Charlotte, NC 28205-1041

    I have had many adventures as well. Different from yours but still just as exciting. I always preferred to be the one “out there” doing what I wanted rather than being the ones sitting on their porches criticizing my dreams. I’m happy for you! And thanks for liking my post again!
