The times they are a-changin'

As the great Bob Dylan once said "The times they are a-changin'."  Wowza!  Let me just say SO much has changed since I last posted.  Where to even begin?!

The man I introduced to you in the last post, John, is still in my life.  In fact, we celebrated our one year anniversary this past week!  This is us at the Tigers Rangers game.  Tigers lost but it was exciting because it went to eleven innings!  :)
In the last post I mentioned that Ben and Kristen were getting married, and get married they did!  It was a beautiful July day and the wedding was wonderful.  They are living out in Tacoma, Washington right now.  I'm sad that they're so far away, but happy that they have each other.  :)

My internship which I talked about briefly in the last post has officially ended.  And my classes are officially completed.  Tomorrow is the social work ceremony where I will be celebrating with my friends and classmates.  I can't believe the program is over and that soon I will have my LLMSW (limited license master of social work).  I filled out all the paperwork today, last step is to get my fingerprints taken tomorrow!  Fun fun.  

I'm still living at Birchcrest with the girls right now, but at the end of May will be moving out and into John's parent's basement in Portland, Michigan.  So that's exciting.  I'm definitely going to miss my girls, but what is life without a little change?  In the meantime I will be filling my days with job applications and studying for the social work licensure exam.  Can't wait to get that over with! :/

Oo, something else to look forward to, my old housemate and good friend Kelsey is getting married next month.  This picture is of me and her at her bridal shower in Indiana in March.  I'm so excited for her!  I get to be a bridesmaid and everything! 

Oh and I do want to mention, I had a super fun opportunity in February to go on a short road trip for a long weekend with some high school friends.  My good friends Anh, Kim, Kathryn and I drove down to Chicago and hopped on a Megabus and took the bus all the way to Memphis!  It was so fun.  Here's a pic of us visiting Sarah, who lives in Memphis, when we're at the zoo.

Oh and I can't forget to mention the fun that I had with my housemates in December.  We all went to see Les Mis together!  Here we are!

There's just so much new-ness in my life, its hard to know what to highlight!  I hope all is well with you all.  Love and miss you.  *muah*
