Well, so much has happened in the last 3 months I don’t even know where to begin.  First, I am no longer in Greenville, SC.  I was just not myself there and feel like now that things happened the way they did, I have found myself again.  I am unbelievably happier now and making more steps to improving my life and my future.

I am currently in Southern California east of Los Angeles.  I am doing a travel assignment out here and really enjoying it.  I am hoping to be able to start a fresh contract again after this one is complete so I can stay at this hospital.  The people are wonderful there.

Since, I have been in California I have not done too many things except head out to Crestline almost every weekend with Matt for some Hang Gliding excitement.  My lessons are at a halt at this moment, but I am planning on getting back into things come next Spring.   Matt and I have done some very exciting things besides the awesome Hang Gliding weekends of flying and fun.

We went to see Gary Allan in Universal City, which was sooo much fun!!

We also went to the L.A. County Fair one weekend.  They had the Worlds largest Outlaw BBQ Grill there that was pretty neat.  We had a really nice day celebrating 3 years of meeting on the airplane.

We also made it out to the ZZ Top and Tom Petty Concert!  I just love Tom Petty and he put on a great show.  That was a lot of fun and a last minute decision to go.


Then, for Matt’s Birthday my sister Jackie came into town and we went to Universal Studios for a day, then made our way to San Diego to the Stone Brewery.  You can see pics of that on Matt’s website.

Lastly, we went back to Austin for my birthday to celebrate with all of my family and friends.   We went to the Oasis to see LC Rocks.  It was a blast as always!  We also ate out at Kerby Lane Cafe and Mighty Fine Burgers, some of Matt’s favorites.  It was a fantastic weekend with everyone.  You can see pictures from this weekend on my facebook page.
