Backstreets back, alright! Just kidding, it's just me.

Sorry, I've been a bit MIA, but life has been picking up high speeds and has me exhausted. So in lieu of a long and detailed blog post, I'm going to just briefly catch you up with some fun little facts about the last few weeks. Ready? ...............annnnd, go!

1. Someone rear-ended me in my new car. I will refrain from all the details as it wasn't and hasn't been a very fun experience, but I will leave you with a bit of eye candy, as I have a rental while my car is in the shop.

Bam! What's up, Dodge Challenger. You sexy bitch!

2. This week is Holy Week and today is Good Friday. I'm so excited for what I will be experiencing in this evening's (Friday) mass. For those of you who aren't aware, I am Catholic and I love my faith. I can't say I'm a traditional Catholic, as I am a little more liberal, but none-the-less, to know me is to know that my belief in God is a big part of who I am. If you aren't Catholic, I don't discriminate. I am not judgmental if you are of any other religion, either. All I care about is that you believe in God or something for that matter. Same way as I don't see color. If you're a good person with a solid foundation, that's all that matters to me. :)
Here's an image of yesterday's Holy Thursday service.

3. My whole work department decided we wanted to figure out what each other's spiritual animal is. We let others decide for us and then took a test to see if it aligned. Funny enough most of them did line up correctly.

What's my chosen spiritual animal, you ask? A Lion(ess). I was told that I'm extremely calm until it's necessary to confront. That my confidence is obvious and that I have a quiet elegance and awesome hair. (yes! the hair!). 

I gladly accept my chosen spiritual animal. Thanks, team!
disclaimer: My 2nd and 3rd animals were Bear and Owl.

4. My Dog Bella and her sister Lulu were recently groomed after a few months of heavy hair growth. Talk about adorable.

5. Even though I've got work up to my eyeballs and a life full of imperfections, I'm perfectly happy with where I'm at at this time. I will never settle with complacency. I'm a doer; and will always want more, but for right now I can definitely say I appreciate where my journey has led me.

...oh, and just one more thing. appreciate the people in your life. Whether it's only for a day, or if you're lucky, a lifetime, these people will teach you things and offer you tools that are needed for your personal growth. And even if you do not see it right now, keep your heart open and your arms stretched out with your palms up, and, just wait. The universe always provides when the timing is right.
