Little things

I am back at school! All my friends were so excited to here all about the engagement and I was more then happy to show off my ring. It definitely feels weird being back. I don't think I was ready to start a new quarter or maybe it is the fact that now I am engaged and I want to be with my fiancé. But he is in Georgia finishing up his army training and I am here finishing another quarter at UW. That is just the place we are at right now. Soon we will get to be together again.
One of my goals for the new year is to enjoy the simple and little things and to be happy. Right now I am trying to do just that. It seems extra hard this time getting back into the swing of things and transitioning back to college life. Dorm room, crappy food, and all. But I am happy to have this blog, a place to work out everyday, my Swedish class, food to eat and a bed to sleep in. It is the little things. 
Denim shirt: Target. Cardigan, Shoes: Old Navy. Pants: H&M. Tank: Victorias Secret

So wish me luck with my first day of classes. I hope winter quarter is a good one. I am also looking forward to it staying lighter out with each passing day. Little things;)
love, Carlee

  6. Congratulations! Heh you attend a school that uses the 'quarter" system, I thought to myself must be Washington or Oregon! I completed the graphic design program at SCCC. But moved back to New York a number of years ago. Couldn't take all the rain.
