A wedding on the plains..

Congratulations to Julie and Scott! Over the weekend, the couple married down on the plains of Auburn. All day the clouds were dreary and rain was coming whether we were ready or not.. or so we thought. The weather held off for the couple as they married downtown and had their reception at a red barn!

A change is gonna come..

If you know the song, sing it in your head. Sam Cooke was a lyrical genius as far as I'm concerned. Now I don't compare my life to the tone of this song by any means.. I am at a much better place than the character portrayed and the symbolism represented in this song. I simply mean that in my life, oh yes, a change is coming.

I once purchased a sticker that said 'the only constant is change.' What truth this sticker holds- which is why I've kept it around for as long as I have. At one point you would have heard me say that I hated change, that it made me nervous and overwhelmed. The fact of the matter is now that I've experienced so much change in my 30 years, both seemingly good and bad, I have come to depend on it.

A marriage, a career, and a new life await me in the upcoming months. Three big changes all wrapped up into one bittersweet package! Bitter in that it takes much work to plan a wedding.. to network myself in a sea of strange faces.. to find a new job in a new state.. to find a new residence and to start a new life. But along with the bitter, this package of change contains something sweet that is big and new.. something that I can grab by the proverbial horns and check off my list of accomplishments.

So as you see, a change is coming no matter what. How prepared I am for said changes can drastically improve or congest the overall experience. With the thought now blogged, off I go to network again to the soothing sounds of Mr. Cooke.

Nice Day for a Fox Hunt

Last weekend in Courtland we got to welcome the group back from a hunt. They were on the trail of a wild coyote or two that have been seen around the area. After a five hour ride, the coyotes got lucky and the group called it a day. Everyone was exhausted and the hounds were covered in muck.
