Journeys are never a straight path...

Hello & Woof! (thoughts from Lynne and Coco)

How I got here - Lynne
Just about a year ago, I started a new full time job in Scotts Valley. The year was full of learning new things, meeting new friends, and getting used to a demanding work environment. In my spare time, I continued working my part time jobs - participating and helping my dear friend with her art business...

Working at Matisse ART SPA - Look at their creations!

...and property managing my home in Mount Hermon. Just a week into starting my new job, I found myself interviewing and finding a new tenant, getting the apartment ready to rent, and eventually overseeing the entire house being painted.

Checking out color combinations

Life has been very full these past 11 months, and it's been a blessing to work so close to home. But just when I thought I had found my "new normal," the winds of change were just around the corner.... 

A fork in the Road - Coco
Mom's back! Apparently her job has been consolidated with two other job descriptions which includes a financial component. My mom & numbers don't "play very well" together, so she's home but looking for a new job. Something tells me this time at home isn't going to last long, so I'm getting all the cuddles and ball-playing in I can!

Adventures ahead - Lynne
So... what does the future hold? The best upcoming adventure is a trip to Paris. This trip has been postponed for 2 years and has been in the planning stages for the last 6 months. With great recommendations, a resume writing expert, benefits through May, and a small severance package, my company has encouraged me to GO!! And so... I am... with my dear friend, Julie and my wonderful cousin, Kathy! 

Paris will be a time to celebrate all of God's blessings in my life, His faithfulness and His perfect provision for what the future holds upon my return. So I choose to focus on God's Sovereignty and not my circumstances. 

Thank you for walking this journey with me... forks and all!

And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning." ~ T.S. Eliot
