What Makes You Happy?

Today’s prompt is: What Makes You Happy? Lately the thing that makes me most happy and excited is wedding planning. I’m just extremely excited and extremely happy to go through this stage of life. Every time we complete something on our to-do list my excitement level gets amped up x1789789555000. I’m so happy that I found someone amazing to spend the rest of my life with. Other things that make me happy are: 1. Spending time with my niece and sisters. I love my niece so much, every time I see her she’s reached a new developmental milestone and it’s…

Smile

Recently, my braces were removed. It’s kind of a big deal for me, finally at age 25 I have a smile I can be truly confident about. I’ve always been self conscious about my smile. I unfortunately inherited my dad’s gap and my mom’s crooked teeth. This combination led to a childhood filled with extreme self-awareness. I don’t think six year olds are supposed to be acutely aware of their flaws. Many of my school photos show a tight lipped smile that carefully conceals my wonky teeth. I dealt with a group of boys teasing me in sixth grade. “Gap…

College Trip Part 1: Reno

Last month I took my last “college trip”. Two of my friends and I hit the road and made the nine hour drive from Los Angeles to Reno for a Public Relations conference . I won’t bore you with the details about what happened at the conference although it was a great opportunity for us as students and PR pro hopefuls. The trip became more than a conference visit–it was about bonding and creating memories. Twenty plus hours in the car plus three days of activities and sharing a hotel room with the same two people makes for lots of…

Engaged!

Most of you already know this but I just want to say it again…I’m ENGAGED! Kyle proposed to me last Sunday and I couldn’t be happier. He took me to Sycamore State Beach off the Pacific Coast Highway right at sunset. This place means a lot to us since it’s where we had our first date. I thought he was just being randomly romantic and cute by taking me there–the proposal completely shocked me! When he procured a little black box from his pocket and revealed a glimmering diamond ring I started crying and became speechless! He watched my reaction…
