177. Idea stolen from a Facebook friend - in honor of Valentine's Day, a love letter to my life.
Dear Jen's Life,
What an awesome life you are. It seems like every single day there are more things, sometimes just little things, that prove how wonderful and what a gift you are.

Take today for example - waking up from a night full of wonderfully awesome dreams (like really really awesome) in my warm cuddly bed. Awesome hair day, then I get to come work with my best friend all day. Mall walking at lunch, and a night of homework free wonderfulness. I'll hit the gym, sweat my guts out, then go home and spend the night talking to awesome people and doing awesome things. The sun is out, my peeps are healthy, and did I mention my hair looks fabulous? Ohh, maybe I'll go get my nails done too!

I love you, Jen's life. Thanks for making me the happy, quirky, funny person that I am. And thanks for all the people who are in my life.

Love, Jen

176. Being completely overwhelmed with life. Between my usual awesomeness, two masters classes, four new community service projects, 10 Words with Friends games, my job, keeping people happy, worrying about new relationships and trying to stay up to date with my DVR, I feel like ripping my beautiful luscious hair out. But I can't, because I just spent a lot of money on hair products. Oh, and my diet is sucking the life out of me and I want to quit. #ventingblog
