2008 lets have a chat shall we?

You really busted me up you know? This time last year I was crying over a plate of cookies, trying to keep my mind off of my boyfriend at a party somewhere without me. Then I lost my financial aid and had to drop out of school, just when I thought I had found my calling. I was lost, broke and confused and then Lauren came to pick me up from work and handed me a card that was addressed to Aunt Courtney. I cried instantly, knowing what the note would say inside. Everything I had been hoping for, she was pregnant with my very first nephew. It was that day my whole life changed and my eyes chose a path to look down. Holding James in my arms this morning, his gorgeous grey eyes straining against the lights in the hospital room to get a peek at his Aunt Courtney- I realized everything I wanted out of life.

2009, I ask of you this one thing- please help me get there!

Here are my hopes for the coming year:

I will start pastry school at the Midwest Culinary Institute in February, hopefully it wont be too long before I am prepared to start a career in a field I am truly passionate and excited about.

Continuing my job at the candy store is proving to be the best decision I ever made, I love and respect every person I work with and I would hope they feel the same way about me. Please let me continue to grow and make connections with more people in the field that will help me throughout my career.

Zachary has been my best friend since we met in August. He loves the good-mood-courtney and the bad-mood-courtney as much as he loves the outgoing-courtney and the insecure-courtney. I love him when he's hillarious-zach and when he's cheesy-zach, when he's over-the-top-sweet-zach as much as the clueless-forgetful-zach. He is my pal for life and I hope this year we can finally GO ON A VACATION!

I hope my little family continues to grow closer together as we have been the past few years. Liking your brothers and sisters as adults is so much easier-they don't steal your toys! I hope each and every one of them continues to be healthy and happy and will make plenty of gorgeous nieces and nephews for me!

Without further adieu,

This is our boy, James William

All I want for Christmas

... Is my engagement ring and my little Chinese baby.

I wish I could wake up tomorrow and be 30





The other night Zach laid his head on my belly and told me was thinking how nice it would be to listen for a little baby in there someday. I want to start pastry school very soon and in a few years open my own wedding cake business and at the end of the day, come home to my little chef husband...sigh

So here I am, my uniform is in a pile on the floor. My socks and shoes were kicked into a corner, I just had a nice poop and my local artisan brew buzz is kicking in. How sweet is my life right now? I just needed to share it- tree falling in the forest kind of deal right? A lot of cool things are happening to me. First and foremost a very stout, very old fashioned Italian man patted me on a cheek the other day and I was completely thrilled! He sort of grabbed me in the way you would tell someone "you're a peach" and I felt like one. The company I work for is throwing a fancy party to auction off things to raise funds for wildlife conservation and my boss put me in charge of making a "homemade gourmet" candy basket and she followed that up with "basically everything that YOU make, it will be like a Courtney gourmet basket k?" I really love my job. Today I picked up a radio and said "candy store to engineering, the eagles are ready for take off" and about five people laughed back "HAHAHAHA--over" Its like, I really cant imagine myself doing anything else- I SELL GUMMI BEARS FOR A LIVING OKAAY?


I'm going to watch mindless television and eat things that are bad for me


Lovee you

Life has been so good to me lately. I used to wake up every morning and ask myself "why?" but now my life has purpose. Sharing my love with every person I meet is what I was meant to do on this earth. Finding and accepting my genuine self has been the best thing to happen to me. I feel more confident, I feel happy, I want to go out and meet new people and make those lasting connections. I want to live a beautiful life
