happy weekend readers!
hope you have had a great one. my husband had friday off so we were able to really enjoy the weekend with some extra time to rest and have fun.
i also wanted to share some really great news (hence the congratulatory photo above) that i heard just today…
I HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED TO MEDICAL SCHOOL!!!
this has been a long and exhausting process during this past year. flying out to the interview, writing pages upon pages for the admissions essays, standing my ground when i was told that i wouldn’t make it without a “traditional” pre-med background and last but not least, moving from chicago to northern california without being accepted yet, just knowing that i would have to make it work somehow. it feels like such a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders and even though i know this is just the beginning (of many years of hard work), it fills my heart with joy to be one step closer to my dream.
so with that, here is a little happiness from my weekend:
[because japanese prints make stairwells so pretty]
[because walls of fragrant jasmine are taking over our neighborhood and i couldn’t be happier]
[because the beloved music of the brazilian working-class is best enjoyed in a crowded bar, with more dancers than musicians]
[because a celebration dinner isn’t complete without an incredible raw, vegan cacao+coconut torte!]
wishing you health+happiness ❤
