A couple of exciting things to update:
I zipped up my dress for my brother's wedding! I am so relieved that I was able to do that so soon. I'm going to look into getting the dress altered now. It's a little too "flowy" for my taste. Because of my curves I tend to gravitate more towards fitted dresses. This one doesn't really accentuate anything. I'm hoping some alterations may make the dress more flattering on my figure.
I was able to run eight miles on Saturday, September 7th. It was not an easy task but I was proud of myself when I was finished, like always. I was supposed to run nine miles this last weekend but life happened and I wasn't able to. I'll catch up some how.
On a more serious note, I've been praying a lot lately. I've been doing a lot of soul searching and I've been asking God for guidance. I am extremely happy with my personal life. I could not ask for more. I have the most amazing parents. I go home to the man of my dreams every night. My family and friends are wonderful. And my puppy is the cutest little dog in the world. So why the heck have I been soul searching you ask? Well let me tell you...I am not where I want to be on a professional level.
I have always known that I need to do something creative with my life and I'm not currently doing that. I truly believe that until I am in a creative field I will never be completely satisfied with my job. I have been praying for God to show me where He wants me. I've had a few doors slam in my face recently and I'm just waiting patiently for God to open a door.
I'm terrified when I think about the possibility of changing careers but I'm also extremely excited. I know that God will never give me more than I can handle.
And one last thing. I sang at the Merc here in Temecula on the evening of September 7th (after my eight mile run). I did a duet with my long-time friend, Miranda, and I sang two more songs on my own. I haven't sung in that kind of an environment in over a year so it was really exciting to be back on stage. Here are the links in case you want to watch:

AND this handsome man!
