Inspiration. . .

I have been thinking a lot lately about how busy I am.
I'm planning a wedding.
I'm finishing up one degree & beginning another.
I am an employee at a highly emotional job.
I am at a transitioning point mentally between being a girlfriend and becoming a wife.

I am enjoying each of my current roles, each in a unique way. Sometimes I feel like I have a love-hate relationship which each of them, but that subsides quickly.

I have been contemplating what I will do once our wedding passes & I cut back to part- time at work. I feel like I will actually have time to play. Don't get me wrong, school is going to keep me busy, but I am excited to have less on my plate for awhile.

Today, I have time. It feels weird. I mean don't get me wrong. I have 15 things left to complete on my wedding list, but today, I just want to be.

I was inspired by my future cousin-in-law (that sounds silly) to participate in Project Zero. Google it if you don't know what it is. I have had a blast making a list and thinking about the possibilities of the future. If you know me, you know I absolutely love making lists. I have a list for the over all week, for each day, for groceries, you name it and I have probably made a list for it. I think I enjoy the reassurance of crossing completed things off and seeing my progress on paper.

So, I am going to post my Project Zero list on here and blog about my progress. I think it will be a fun, new experience for me.
