conservation area picnic

 As you may know, I started a new full time job last week. Not only is it a new job, but it's a new job at the only company in the world that I REALLY wanted to work for. So, I guess you could call it a dream job.

 You may be wondering why I'm showing photos of this beautiful picnic while writing about my new job...well, the reason is that we were taken for a picnic lunch last week to this beautiful conservation area.

 It was the perfect day, this thermometer is the proof.

 I wasn't planning on swimming, I was too busy being grateful for this beautiful lunch we were sharing out in nature!

 The pond had dozens of new little frogs! This guy on the left is so new that he still has his tadpole tail!

We didn't use this fire pit, but I loved how old and rustic it looked, so I had to take a photo.

When I lost my job back in March, I felt like 2011 was going to be my worst year yet. As one of my friends put it, this year seems to be a make it or break it year for a lot of people we know. After being unemployed for almost four months, I got the terrific news of this new job. Now that I have worked there for a week, I can't imagine ever working anywhere else. 

2011 is turning around for us.

I don't just feel lucky...
I AM lucky.


  1. Yay! That job sounds amazing. Anywhere that takes you to a conservation area for lunch is a winner in my book. Congratulations! I hope it just keeps getting better, if that's even possible. :)

  2. I am so, so, so happy for you. What an amazing reward after a long wait and, I'm sure, a lot of work. This is awesome. You're going to do so well!

    Also this gives me hope that I will not be unemployed forever...

  3. So glad that things are working out for you. GORGEOUS pictures!


leave us a note, we love to hear from you!
