Hey! It's just Tuesday, and I am exhausted! Maybe it's because I have a laundry list of items to take care of...and let's just say that everyday...I add about 3 major items to said list. Trust me, I'm not complaining...but it is a little overwhelming at times!

I wanted to let you know something...I filed the papers for my non-profit's name. That seems weird even as I type this...my non-profit...but I did it, and I'm excited! It was a painless experience, and in case you're wondering, it cost 16 bucks!

You wanna know the name....well, without further ado, the name registered in Harris County is REACH! To give you a little background, it was originally supposed to be another name, but it was already taken! I started to panic a little bit, and asked the lady if I could step outside for a minute. I just said a little prayer, and REACH! came to mind! It turns out that I really like it! Do you?

I feel so grown up, and so in the time and place that I am supposed to be in...and that feels SO GOOD!!! Now the real work begins, and to be honest, it gets a little crazier by the minute, but you know, I just thought my friends were cool before...now I know they are! They've been stepping up and offering help, contacts, support, ideas....I feel so blessed everyday! So many people lack the solid friendships that I have, and I don't take them for granted. I'm talking let me pray with you on that....awesomeness at its best right?!

Speaking of awesome friends, my good friend Mike co-owns a graphic design firm, and he and his partner are working with me to brand REACH! So, technically, I've had my very first REACH! business meeting....all while I was talking to him, I kept repeating, 'I can't believe this is happening....' And I can't!

I could seriously go on and on, but this girl...with the newly discovered sexy tiny set of spider veins need to go to bed! I've got SO much to do, and almost not enough time to do it!

Say your prayers, and dream big! God is listening!!!
