The Decision.

It's been made. And it's final.

The U!!!!!

I am thrilled! I am thrilled I get to stay in state with my family, friends, Business, etc. I am thrilled that he will graduate completely debt free.  I am thrilled I get to stay with my baby girls and nurture my studio until it is the biggest, most well-known in the state! I am thrilled we get to live in one of our favorite cities ever- Cottonwood Heights. Where we both grew up! I am thrilled he got a scholarship.  I am thrilled it will be a cake walk for him to be in the top of his class.  I am thrilled.

But if I were to end there, I wouldn't be being "real". Which is why I started this blog- to be real. Really me and really honest.  I am honestly Stoked about this decision, but I am also a little bummed. I am bummed that Hayes had to turn down a freaking phenomenal scholarshp offer (they practically begged) from a ranked 15 school! (The U is 40 or 50 something) I am bummed I don't get to move to California and live in the only other place than here that feels like I belong.  I am bummed that Hayes doesn't get to show off a fancy bumper sticker of a top-ranked law school (many of which accepted him) that is brag worthy. I am bummed the projected median salary went from 6 to 5 digits once we picked this school. But at the end of the day, I am realizing that the Lord has blessed me with a new kind of trial. (Thank goodness he gave me a break from the other ones- I don't think I could have handled any more).

I am used to handling crazy, chaotic, cops-involved trials and drama.  But this is different.  This is a quiet, logical trial.  Like I said in my other post, emotion can't solve or cope with this trial.  Which is nice! I am just not used to it.

I am learning to be grateful, and stable, and in love with my life and the guy I get to share it with- that part is easy.  I am learning to make decisions as a couple (something very difficult for this domineering diva).   I am learning that sometimes my way is not the best way (don't tell the dancers this haha). I am learning that bigger is not always better, and that following your heart and ignoring your head only works when you're a young single adult (moving to DC, falling in love with a rocker in Malibu, opening a dance studio).  But now that I am getting older, I am realizing there are other good options. Not just the most exciting ones.

So there you have it.  Maybe I am a little bitter because I bleeeeeed blue haha. But you betcha I will support that red through and through!

I cannot even fathom what the future has in store, and I could not be more excited.  All I know is that as long as I am with William, all is well. Oh and God was right- it does all work out if you trust him.
