Hi Friends! Rachael Here!
I am so happy to be writing to you all because I am home with my family celebrating Thanksgiving!! It is one of my favorite times of the year because all of us girls get to cook together and talk and laugh. I have lots of fond memories:) Anywayss… wanted to share some life updates!! So I accepted my first big girl job as a nurse in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Houston! It really is such a dream come true. I mean cmon!… Who wouldn’t love to work with the cutest patients in the world all day long?!
So I have been super excited and finally a bit less stressed. I am still digesting the fact that nursing school is coming to a close! I feel like its been so long, but in a silly way super short too! I have truly never worked so hard in my life for something and to graduate with my BSN is SURREAL! Nursing is by far the greatest thing I have ever decided to pursue so HURRAY that I get to spend the rest of my life learning and growing in this profession! Also… did i mention i get to take care of BABIES :)??! So excited!!
I also finally get to be back in my home town with my family and boyfriend; such a dream come true. I have prayed so much about it, literally went to so many interviews, cried, laughed, and celebrated for basically the past 2 months over the mess that is “getting a job.” It has been an adventure to the say the least, but I am DONE. Job secured.. now for boards in January ( say some prayers for me hehe). But, I want to enjoy my little victories as much as I can and be excited about my graduation and what not! Focusing on the good things, in the present, is so important for me to keep my spiritual and emotional health in check:)
I got my senior photographs done in fort worth a couple of weeks ago and they turned out wonderful! Hannah Ruth Photography did an amazing job; I 10/10 recommend her, shes super sweet and really makes you feel beautiful! I am sharing the photos below! I was so happy with how they turned out! I will share outfit details below! Xo,
