What a week it has been. I have made a huge change this week.
After 8 years of having a home daycare, I have decided to close up shop. It's hard to believe it's been that long! I've had lots of kiddos in that time. Lots of good times, few bad times. Excellent parents and crazy parents.
It's going to be the hardest to let go of my 2 girls. They're both 3, and I've had them since they were just weeks old. I've spent 10 hours a day, 5 days a week with them. And I adore them to pieces. They definitely have a piece of my heart. It makes me sad to think that soon they probably won't even remember me.
But, that's just life. Nothing stays the same, something is always changing. I am ready for this change, and very excited about it!
I have no idea what I'm going to do now. No idea. I often wish I had gone to college 15 years ago. I think of who I could be, or what I could be doing. But honestly, I'm one of those people who thought I would have my own children and be a stay at home mom, living the dream. But life rarely goes how we think it will, and that didn't end up happening for me. Instead I've just spent my life raising other people's children.
I have a couple more weeks with my kiddos before I have to say goodbye. In the meantime, I am on the hunt for a fun, adventurous, exciting, well paying job. (Yes, I'm dreaming) Any suggestions?
With all this on my mind, I was SO needing this girls night out with Julie, Kari and Laura! These girls are a blast to hang out with, I am so thankful for them!

Tomorrow I'm off to Brown County, IN for some hiking, shopping and ice cream eating!
My 13 mile run will have to wait until Sunday.
On to a new adventure!
