This weekend my dance team and I travel back down to LA for our dance competition. While I am beyond excited, it also marks the end of my college dance experience. I have danced pretty much my whole life, doing ballet since I was four. Joining the dance at my school was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am going to miss it so much. It's going to feel weird not having work outs every morning, practice until 11pm at night, and games almost every weekend. I'll have weekends where I will actually be able to do things! It's a bitter sweet feeling. I'm also graduating in a month and a half, which just recently became more real when I had to pick up my cap and gown. 
There are so many exciting new changes happening my life and I cannot wait for what the future has to hold. The thing I am most excited about is marrying my best friend. Thomas, you are my world and I love you so much. XO

Aww, you're so sweet!! The best of times are coming for you!
Change can be/ feel scary, but I believe that there're waaay better things waiting for you than the ones you're leaving behind :)

Love the outfit! I know it's bittersweet to leave something behind, but you have so many great things ahead of you to look forward to! Wishing you the best!


Alyssa May Edwards said...

Aww I totally know what you mean I have danced my whole life and started ballet at 4 as well. I did pom and competed all through high school and decided to stop after I graduated. I didn't know what to do with myself but you will enjoy the down time and actually being able to do things! Its amazing and I can spend more time with people I care about! I love your blog by the way and I wish the best to the both of you! <3

Fabulous combination of colours!

that's sounds pretty good to me! I graduated one year ago, and now am in the working world - at least part time because I'm writing a phd thesis. well, about the dancing: I know some people who are dancers at the ballet of an opera house, and you know what they enjoy to do when they don't have training? Pilates - a part from yoga something I really enjoy in the evening after work! Did you try this already? It might be an alternative to the dancing for you!

I love that necklace!

Jessica @ Here(and)Now said...

this is such an exciting time. I was in the same situation - dancing my whole life, then suddenly giving it up when i graduated. I miss it all the time, but new adventures and experiences have come my way since that weren't possible when i was a full time dancer! enjoy the last few weeks, it will be hard with finals up ahead, but you won't ever get these last college days back! I graduated in 09 and it is still fresh in my memory

Marisa said...

There are so many wonderful changes happening in your life right now. I understand how it can be bittersweet and exciting at the same time. Embrace and enjoy it!


PS: love the outfit! The monochromatic black, white and gray really makes the necklace pop!
