It's official!

I am officially a licensed massage therapist! Hooray! I passed the national exam last month, received my national certification a few weeks ago, and received my state license last week. Lorianne and I also walked at graduation last Friday and I had the honor of speaking. Scary! I was really nervous but also very honored that I would be nominated, and then chosen to speak. I feel like all my hard work and time away from my girls has finally paid off. And I'm so happy that I was able to go through this experience with my sister. She definitely made it easier to get up and go on those freezing cold mornings, or when my girls would cry because they missed mommy. I love you, Lorianne!

I'm glad you updated! I always think about how awesome you are because when you want to do something, you make it work. I know you hated being away from your family while you were in school, but you showed your girls that if they have a dream, they need to make it happen. Love ya Mar.
