She believed she could, so she did.

As of lately, this has been the wallpaper on my phone and become my own personal motivation.

I had so many BIG goals for this year and I'm just checking things off as I go.

I graduated back in December and will be walking this Friday with Rob. I finished school! Rob graduated school! We'll graduate together :) I'm so proud of him - we've put in a lot of work and its going to be weird to not have to worry about it anymore!

I got a teaching job and started teaching. Although I'm just sharing a classroom for now, I'll have my own classroom at Suncrest Elementary in Orem. Although its intimidating I've learned so much already. I can't wait to do things my way in my own classroom.

I completely updated an old rocking chair I got from my aunt. I took it apart, stained it super dark, and reupholstered it. I love how it turned out and will take it to my classroom next year and then use it for when I have babies someday. :)

Also this weekend, I ran a half marathon. This was a huge accomplishment for me. Six months ago I couldn't even run a block - and I went 13.1 miles! I went with my amazing aunts: Angi, Kinna, & Brandi - Brandi's sister Tiffany - Leah - & Sydney joined to watch since she bailed out on me!

It was an amazing experience and although I thought I would never do it again I'm now looking at others nearby to sign up for. I felt so accomplished and was so proud of myself to be able to say I did it.

I just hoped to finish before the 3 1/2 hour cut off... I made it!
