Today is a day of celebration at our house, because this morning, I got GREAT news! I matched at an incredible spot, and I am beyond thrilled! An extra bonus is that the internship is about two hours outside of Chicago, which means Matt and I will be able to see each other every weekend! Eeeek, I couldn't have asked for a better outcome! After finding out the good news this morning, I hugged Matt, called my mom, and began texting and Facebooking friends. Then my sweet friend Christie fixed a fabulous breakfast of baked cinnamon french toast, and the boys trekked to Starbucks for celebratory lattes. This journey has been exhausting, and with this last step starting, it feels like I can finally see the light at the end of this Ph.D tunnel!
Thank you all for your fabulous happy wishes and words of encouragement. Matt and I both took the day off work to celebrate and spend time enjoying our fabulous city. Tonight we're dining at Frontera and staying at one of our favorite downtown hotels. And if we have time, we'll squeeze in some celebratory shopping :) Have a fabulous weekend, I'm sending virtual hugs to you all!
