|Rainbow Over the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone Summer 2007|
As long as I remember, I've been bustin' at the seams
But I know all things are possible to those that can believe
So I keep chasing rainbows, God supplies my needs
And here is my good news...I will be starting a new job in the next coming weeks. After a five year hiatus, I am rejoining the culinary industry. I have perused many job boards for years and finally threw my name into the hat-on a whim. I was so nervous, knowing I don't look good on paper when it comes to this particular industry. I've wanted to be a part of it so badly-but I stand by my choices, I've waited for my moment and I hope this is it.
I struggled with leaving my part-time retail job. Not because I love it, because that my friends would be untrue, but because it is so easy. I struggle with the idea of my son possibly going to pre-school for an extra day. I fear for my balance. I am so excited and equally scared shitless.

In fact, on our drive to Houston last weekend a piece of "Urban Art" (aka graffiti) made me think of all of those thoughts listed above but also this: Who is the "someone" I want to be?
For now-I want to be that someone who chases rainbows...for me, my family, my son.
