It is officially the first day of my internship.
My word, time has flown right by.  Just twenty-one years ago I was a chubby, 9 pound 4 ounce baby, and now I am a big kid of sorts.
The past three days have been filled with celebration.  From eating cookie cake and playing in the park, to enjoying Fireworks Friday with the Drillers to buying my first big girl camera and enjoying a birthday dinner, it has been an incredible birthday weekend.
I am truly blessed with the people God has put in my life, each day I am reminded of just how lucky I am to be surrounded with such talented, beautiful and gracious people.  It has been such a joy celebrating this time of my life with my friends and family.
Speaking of my family, they are the best. Best in the entire world.  Because of this fact, leaving for the summer is terribly bitter-sweet.  The longest I have ever been away from home is about three weeks, three short weeks, and today I will be leaving for the entire summer (insert big gulp here).  
I know it will be more than ok though, this internship will be an adventure I will cherish for my entire life.  One of those stories to tell the grandchildren, you know? 
I am quite terrible at ending things, as you will soon discover as you read through my somewhat scrambled thoughts that will be published throughout the summer, so with that in mind please do not mind any abrupt transitions… such as this one.

About:

Hi. I'm Elyse.
I love God, and I love people.
I work terribly hard, and I am passionate about quite a few things.
A few of those include, but are not limited to: my faith, my family and serving others.

Professionaly, I talk to/inform/encourage people. On occasion what I do involves making pretty things, reading fantastic literature, discovering passions and creating insanely thorough media/marketing/communication plans.

Personally, I practice dreaming, adventuring, theatre, photography, storytelling and smiling. I smile a bunch.
