8 years ago today...

8 years ago today was a day that changed my life forever. 8 years ago today I became an initiated sister of Delta Zeta at Clarion University. I remember that morning surprisingly well and the feelings I felt inside, like I was about to become part of something so incredibly amazing. And it was.

You see, I wanted to transfer out of school my first semester, wanted to pack up my stuff and go home. College just wasn't working for me.

Delta Zeta changed all of that.

When I walked into that DZ House for the first time (with my glittery pink sweater) I felt like I was exactly where I was meant to be.

When the whole chapter showed up to my work to give me my bid I felt like I finally belonged to something.

When I could just walk into my sister's apartments without knocking I felt like I had a family away from home.

When no matter what day, time or reason I always, always had someone to laugh with, to cry with, or to eat with :0) I knew what it meant to have a sister.

When one of my sister's called to ask me to be in her wedding I felt overwhelmed with joy and love.

I don't know who I would be if I wasn't a Delta Zeta woman. I do know that I would have never ever survived college without my sisters. Delta Zeta taught me to be strong, determined and to stand up for what I believe in. Delta Zeta helped me find out who I really am and there is nothing I can ever do to repay the women that have touched my life in so many ways.

Always remember, it's not four years, it's a lifetime.

DZ love but mostly mine,

New baby!!

Don't worry it's not mine :) My older brother and his wife had their second baby last weekend and it was another beautiful baby girl. Joesphine (Josey) Paulette Bayer. She is so tiny and precious.

It is so crazy to me that my big brother now has two little girls. He is going to have his hands full!

Life as I know it

So I am a week and a half into my"new life" and so far so good! The woman I am staying with is actually on vacation until mid-April so it's just been little ole me thus far. I thought it would be a lot harder than it is but I am doing really well. I will admit it gets lonely sometimes but the good thing is my best friend and my family are only mintues (instead of hours) away. Best part by far....I love my job!!! I feel like a slacker cause I feel like I am doing nothing in comparison to the other ladies in the offie but with time I am sure I will be chained to my desk til the wee hours of the night. And super exciting news, work is sending me to New York City in June for an event. I am sooo excited!!! I have been shopping like crazy for new clothes (wahooo!) and I am only 4 lbs away from my ww goal so I think good things are in store for this month! Now, if only the sun and warmth could find it's way to Ohio things would be 100% awesome!
