Sweet, Beautiful, "Last" Moments

     This week has been full of "last days for me." For example, last week ended my time at the Young Chefs Academy (externship site) & Lenscrafters (my part-time job), Saturday was my last swim at Barton Springs, Sunday was my last party with all of my friends, last night was my last dinner and baking date - for a few months ;) - with my girl, Alison, and tonight was my last night out with my beautiful roommate, Andrea. Oh, how I have been blessed! However, I do have a few more days ahead of me with some awesome opportunities before I hit the road...

     My precious moments have been so beautifully captured...I certainly did not just receive a culinary education - I received life-long friendships and a one-of-a-kind experience that was divinely created. Enjoy...

Enjoying the BEST smoothie ever before taking a swim at Barton Springs.
"Girls on Film" Smoothie with Durian, Banana, Raw Cacao,
and Coconut Juice - BAM!

"Farewell Fiesta" - surrounded by my blessings.

My precious Austin Family who has embraced me
with so much love & care!
A Birthday & Farewell Dinner with Sweet Andrea...
...you are precious to me...hugs to you.

The main reason we came to this restaurant - the Butternut Squash Ravioli!
A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. - It tantalized every taste bud in my mouth!
Mmmm.... :-)

Here's to Life in Austin, Texas - Thank you, Lord, for a beautiful 6 months.
I've learned more than I ever thought I could in such a short amount of time...
...I certainly know there is so much more to come...
     Thank you for joining me in this journey. I appreciate all those who have read my blog and have followed me since post #1. :-) I still have several exciting memories to make while I'm still here in Austin, so please stay tuned!

With love,
