2. What I'm Reminiscing About...
Three years ago when my brother, SIL, nephews J & N came down to visit for Thanksgiving! We had the best time with them. We played lots of games, went to a Christmas lights show, celebrated Thanksgiving, went shopping, watched Christmas movies, and my nephews helped me put up and decorate the small tree I put up in my room. My brother, nephews, and I also went to the park and had an epic game of hide and go seek!
3. What I'm Loving...
My family! Everyday I thank God for blessing me with the family I have. I just wish that I got to see my family more. The majority of my family live in NY where I was born & raised. I have 10 amazing nephews & nieces whom I adore with all of my heart & soul. I am a super proud auntie and being an aunt is my greatest joy and blessing.
4. What I've Been Up To...
I've been dealing with bad insomnia for the past month and a half as well as aches and pains due to lack of sleep. I have recently started substituting and I love it. I have 4 more substitute jobs planned for December. I love being in the classroom with the students and gaining hands on experience. Working with children has always been my passion from a young age. I used to baby sit my younger cousins a lot and besides from working as a customer service representative, all of my job and volunteer experiences have been with children: daycare, Summer camp, after school care, working with kids with disabilities, volunteering, and substituting).
