Feeling the Love!!

So, a few weeks ago I was on the front page of the Tallahassee Democrat (our city newspaper!):

And...also on the 2nd page:

Also on their website:

All because I helped coordinate the Peace Paper Project's visit to our campus to work with our student veterans.  It was pretty awesome - people have recognized me.  Its kinda odd, they will be talking to me for 5-10 minutes and then say "hey, was that you that was on the cover of the newspaper?"  I'm not going to lie - I like it!!

And there is more...March was Women's History Month.  I probably should have posted about that earlier in the month, but well life got in the way.  Anyway, I was delighted to be invited to attend two of FSU Women's History Month events!  The first was a Women in the Workforce Panel.  I was invited to be the speaker to represent women in the military.  Here I am, all dressed up for the event:

It went well.  I certainly think that being a good panelist comes with practice!  But overall it was a success and I think the young ladies that attended got something out it, and that was the whole point, right?

The next night I was invited to the Ladies Legacy Banquet!! Here I am dressed up for it:

Our program came with a Women for FSU pin:

Which was great, because the day before I was admiring the exact same pin that someone was wearing!!  Woo.

Also, I was selected as the Woman Veteran of the Year:
They even gave me flowers!!

So... as you can see I have really been feeling the love lately!!  I am so utterly happy that I chose to come to FSU for graduate school.  I am so blessed to have been given so many wonderful opportunities since I have arrived here.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE this school.  I will forever be a true Seminole!!
