As I got up this morning to get ready to leave for the airport, I was excited yet sad. I love being home! I love spending time with my parents and just relaxing at home! It gives me a sense of comfort and safety. While I was home for all of May, I got to go on "dad dates", spend lots of quality time with my mom and also enjoy lots of laughs and fun times with my sister! Time always goes by so fast, and yet I never get to do all that I wanted too! I got to see mostly everyone that is special in my life (minus a few) and really relax without taking any tests or having to study!
I am headed back to Flagstaff today and even though I was a bit sad to leave I am so excited to get back! I am moving into a 3 bedroom apartment with my best friends! It is going to be a year that I will never forget! =] I have made the best of friends in my masters program and we always have fun together!
SO here is to today! I have promised myself to live for me, to do what I want to do and know that I will succeed! I am going to have an amazing summer! =]

Today is my dad's birthday! He is 61, but he is in the best shape of his life! He told me yesterday, that he is so happy to be healthy and handsome because his father only lived to be 63! I told him he is going to live a LONG and prosperous life! =] He is the best dad in the entire world! He has always believed in me and has been my best friend and role model my whole life! As I always say, "Forever and always dad, I will always be your princess and you will always be my Hero!" =] As parents and family members get older, the more I realize how important each day is with loved ones! I am so lucky to have great parents, a sister who is my best friend, and such supporting and amazing aunts, uncles, grandparents and cousins! I truly don't know what I would do without them and they have made me the person I am today! Well... today is a celebration of life! =] Go out and enjoy it because we only live once! =]
