New Chapter

Today I finished my 5th year of teaching and packed up the contents of these four walls as I begin a new chapter at a new school. As much as I love everything in this room it is the laughter, memories, friendships, love, and learning that I will miss dearly. It is the familiar faces, former students, families and best friends that greet me each day. So many amazing memories here. So many treasured friendships that are irreplaceable. Many tears and many dance parties! I am so lucky to have people I love so dearly that made leaving so difficult, but I am so excited for what the future holds. I can't wait to teach, inspire, and love a whole new batch of first graders!

Polka Dot Rug //Ikea
Blue cart // Ikea
Book Boxes // Really Good Stuff
Flamingo Watercolor Prints // School Girl Style

These three girls and my husband coordinated the best surprise of my life. They managed to gather all five years of my former students and surprise me with a huge group photo! It is something I will treasure forever. Thank you girls for everything!

I'm baaaack! So I took way too long of a break from this sweet blog, but I'm going to attempt to bring it back to life. So here goes nothing. I'll catch up on our trips and then jump into the life changes…(sold house, built a new house, and got an adorable puppy!)

So here's a flashback to one of our hundreds of Disneyland trips with our besties!
