Tomorrow is fresh with no mistakes in it.

Sometimes life throws us crazy curve balls and you need to decide if you’re going to catch it or let the ball hit you. I chose to play catch with life.

I’d recently informed you all that I had just started a new job, and then the incredible happened. I heard back from a company I’d been dreaming of as my “ideal work environment” for an interview. When the ideal calls you don’t say that you’re sorry but life had other plans, you hop on and grab the reigns.

I found out I got this job for this incredible Chicago based massive household name company this past week. I feel so happy and validated, a company that I can proudly tell others I work at. A company where I’m not worried about ethics being an issue.

And I start at this company today!

I hope your Monday brings you a novelty of fresh starts and that your able to find them throughout the day.

As my home girl LM. Montgomery said, "Tomorrow is fresh, with no mistakes in it."

Speaking of L.M. Montgomery I’ll share with you my favorite scene from Anne of Avonlea (my all time favorite movie. Are you kindred spirit?)

“I don’t see how you could keep on loving me when I was such a little fool,” said Anne. “Well, I tried to stop,” said Gilbert frankly, “not because I thought you what you call yourself, but because I felt sure there was no chance for me after Gardner came on the scene. But I couldn’t — and I can’t tell you, either, what it’s meant to me these two years to believe you were going to marry him, and be told every week by some busybody that your engagement was on the point of being announced. I believed it until one blessed day when I was sitting up after the fever. I got a letter from Phil Gordon — Phil Blake, rather — in which she told me there was really nothing between you and Roy, and advised me to `try again.’ Well, the doctor was amazed at my rapid recovery after that.” “I don’t want sunbursts and marble halls. I just want YOU.”

love love love Anne + Gil
