Life update and sneak peeks!

October has been a busy month! I started a new job as a Lead Children’s Librarian. Our library is currently undergoing renovations and is opening in a few days! I am sharing some sneak peeks of the progress.

Dinosaurs in tutus

Dinosaurs in tutus...because, why not?
I saw this posted on a thrifting group I belong to and my goal
is to make these someday! Too bad I gave away all of Harrison's old dinos. But someday...

We just got back from a small vacay at my happy place. SE Oklahoma. The leaves are just starting to change color but I really want to go back in a month to see the whole effect.
Here is a photo I found online of what the area looks like in Fall:

While we were there yesterday, there were mists just like that on the mountain tops. 

I absolutely love this place. And I totally needed a getaway. Here's some more pics I took...

Beautiful abandoned house

Original post office at Honobia
This was smaller than a shed!!

Before I go, here's a picture of me as tinacat. Because when you road trip, you get bored sometimes.

Caught up in my feelings

Lately I have been listening to this song...

I remember my best friend Sarita gave me a Boyz II Men cassette during the end of my Senior year in High School. This was always my favorite song on it. I am leaving the library organization that I have been with almost four years. I have accepted a new job as a Children's Librarian in a small town. It can be bittersweet to leave what you have known and dive into something new. Here's to new (happy) adventures!

My co-workers threw me a surprise get-together. They so get me. They described me as a unicorn! They said how I was the light there. It was very sweet.

I appreciate all the gifts and well-wishes and even the tears (though I would cry in response).

We are going out to celebrate tonight as a team with some drinks.

Wish me luck!
