Thankful Thursday: Adventures in Driving, Pink Filofaxes, and More!

______________________

Hello there, lovely friend of mine!! I cannot believe that January is half-way through! Golly gee!! I've been extremely busy, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I'm just a happier person when I have a lot to do during the day. 

Yesterday was my one year & 7 months anniversary with Zeth. We celebrated by dining at our favorite sushi joint & grabbing frozen yogurt for dessert. It was such a lovely date. I love occasions to celebrate my life with Zeth, but honestly, I feel like every day is a little celebration of how amazing my life is with him in it. 

I have some very big things to be happy for this week. I've been scribbling down things in the gratitude list section of my filofax all week.

Passing my driving exam...and becoming officially licensed to drive! I took my exam on Wednesday, and I was sweating bullets all day before the exam. I even took my boyfriend on a frantic search around town to find places to get in some last minute parallel parking practice. I was so relieved when the driving examiner told me that I passed. There is just something magical about being able to drive myself around without relying on someone else. I think everyone needs to feel the kind of independence that comes with being able to travel solo. 

Getting a new job...as an office assistant/file clerk with a home healthcare company. I'm beyond excited about this opportunity!! 

My new pink Classic Personal Filofax...which is already organized & bursting with appointments. I'm a little bit too excited about office supplies & being organized.

Congrats on getting your license. I've had mine for 18 years & I still can't parallel park.

Congratulations on your license and new job! I failed my driving test the first time because of the parallel parking, so I spent the entire week leading up to my next driving test practicing. I've had my license for four years now, and I've still never parallel parked since my driving test.

Yay on the license! That's the most nerve-wracking thing. Happy anniversary as well. I hope you had a fun time celebrating.
