Striving to Live a Life of Adventure, Excellence, and Faith.

A Day in the Life...............

Good Wednesday Friends!!  Hope your week is off to a great start, and lets celebrate that the weekend is right around the corner.  My days off are literally filled with packing, and getting our home ready for the move is top priority.    Other than packing, life is just busy.  

In this week's What I am Love'n Wednesday, I thought I would talk a little bit about my career, which I am absolutely blessed to be doing in this economy.  I love public relations and communications work, and with so many of my blog friends writing  "Day in the Life" post, I thought I would do the same.  So, its simple this week..............What I'm Love'n will highlight my typical work day!!

Today my day looked like this:
