the boys are home for 2 days so we celebrated with a pancake breakfast. They thought I was weird for taking photos of the eggs and cakes. Well I guess I am.

A busy life

It's almost Halloween and I have not posted something for so long. We are here in our little corner of the world enjoying learning, soccer, theatre, first loves, growing up and bright, cool and crisp Fall weather. Though it may not appear so in the photo, this was most intense rainbow I have ever seen. Rainbows always give me hope.

apples and sunflowers

Here is what I am seeing in our neglected corner of the world. With Mama in school some things just fall by the wayside, like yard and garden maintenance. These are the prettys I see out there. I have to look at the beauty and forget the rest. School is a lot of information and learning techniques for different treatments. It is both exciting and intimidating. When I perform on another of my classmates I enjoy it but also I am very nervous and feel like I'm constantly making mistakes. It's a lot harder than it looks! So much to remember and many subtle nuances about how much pressure to apply, what order to do each step, which custom ingredients to use for each client. It is a real growing and learning time for me and I love it. Very, very exhausting though for all of us. Thanks to my family for standing behind me.

School Daze

I have enjoyed my first two weeks of school immensely! I am learning so much all at once and getting to know new people and navigating the hairy world of commuting. I am fascinated by the skin and how it responds to what we feed it inside and out. It's like a sponge and it protects us so well! My family has gotten along with flying colors and I appreciate and love them so so much. So far I am feeling pretty good about this decision and looking forward to reaping the benefits of my knowledge. My teachers have been wonderful and I even found a great classmate to carpool with. She is amazing and I feel like I have known her for ages. All in all it is definitely a more hectic pace than I am used to but it has been doable for everyone. Next up is our umpteenth Labor Day Party! More on that later.I am happy and excited about the prospect of becoming a Skin Care Specialist.

A break for me

I'll be posting randomly for awhile because I am training to become an Aesthetician.The definition of which is- "A person who is knowledgeable about the nature and appreciation of beauty" I am hoping I can help people feel good while discovering their own inner beauty. So far so good, the class has been fun and I like the group. A lot of very different personalities. I will definitely post photos, maybe I'll do a photo project for the Fall.
