SO these past few weeks have been crazy busy and I have hardly had time to update you more than a picture here and there. I am sorry for my neglect, but I am here now! Since school got out my days have been full of holiday fun, a trip to vegas, and some very needed rest!
One of my favorite holiday nights was spent with Elise and Brittany. We were invited to the annual Rossiter Christmas party and decided we wanted to go all out in our outfits this year. So I spent the afternoon sewing us bow dresses! We were presents, and had such a fun time dancing away at the party!
Also, last week I was able to take the whole week off of work and head to Sin City with the family for the U bowl game! It was such a fun trip! We got stuck on the way down there in traffic because of crazy snow for a few extra hours, and then also hit traffic on the way home! Ha we don't have the best luck with roadtrips, but we shopped a lot, slept, ate like kings and just had a great time!
One of the only photos from the trip. Ha
When we got home it was the 23rd so the whole weekend was full of family, friends and holiday cheer! It was such a great Christmas and past few weeks!
Tomorrow I take my very last final ever! Such a sureal feeling, I can't really explain it any better than this quote I just found.
"there are moments that mark your life, moments when you realize nothing will ever be the same again, and time is divided into two parts, before this and after this, now sometimes you can feel such a moment coming, that's the test, or so i tell myself at times like these: strong people keep moving forward anyway, no matter what they're gonna find."
I am not nervous to graduate from college, I am excited and proud of myself for sticking with it, and accomplishing something great. I am excited for what the future brings, whatever that may be. But as of right now I feel really blessed. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to attend and finish college, I feel blessed to have parents who have supported me in so many ways through this journey, and I feel blessed to have had all the amazing experiences I have had in these past years while at the U.
So last night, the beautiful Julie, Britt and I were sitting and just chit chatting away like girls do. Anyway we started talking about places that we have travelled to, and comparing stories with each other about our foreign adventures. Ever since our little chat last night I can't get my mind off of traveling. All I want to do right now is get on a plane to come exotic country and have an adventure.
Traveling is an interesting thing. Yes, you may have been to the same place as someone else, but you will never share your same experience with anyone. The memories you made, and the feelings you felt are yours, and only yours to keep. I think this is part of the reason why I am so addicted to traveling. The experiences that I have had during my travels have defined a huge part of me. I have learned so many lessons while out and about that I would never have learned by staying in my bed. I know I am just rambling on, but it is all I can think about today!
So, I guess the conclusion is... I must start saving up for my next adventure! Wherever it may be, and whenever it may be, I cannot wait!
I can't believe it is already December. Where did this semester go? I am way excited, but not ready for it to already be the end of the term. I have so much to do, and I literally don't know if there are enough hours in the day to get them all done. These next two weeks I will be in hybernation mode... ok not really. We all know I am always up for a good party, but really I am going to need to knuckle down. Wish me luck!
And then... when December 11 has come and gone (my last final).. it will be all Christmas joy from there! Here is a preview of what I am talking about.. these are adorable.
