a lovely detour

February 26, 2010


When Matthew and I drove back from Santa Cruz we decided to take a little detour to get back to the I-5. Little did we know that we were going to be on a windy road for over 100 miles. So it wasn’t really a shortcut at all because you can’t go fast on windy roads.. or you can but our lives are too important for that. Also we were in my car, and Snow White doesn’t like being foolish! But we did stop to appreciate the beautiful California landscape and say hi to some cute horses and cows!

Happy California Cows!

Lately I’ve been thinking about how I graduated from college almost a year ago {seriously where has the time gone!}. I really thought that by now I’d be settled into a career that I loved and feel happy, stable and relieved. While, I’m clearly not there I’m so grateful for this journey I’ve gone on over the past 9 months. I’ve learned so much about myself and what I want out of a job. I listened to myself and accepted the fact that I really don’t want to be a lawyer. I went after my dream to work for a magazine and got articles published in a monthly glossy. Now I’m rethinking becoming a teacher and I’m volunteering at my old elementary school. I’m even in two of my old teacher’s classrooms! It’s been confusing at times but stepping back I’m grateful for this lovely detour I’m on. And I know I’ll eventually get where I want to be!

Happy Friday everyone!
