Why the name?

I figured it might be time to explain why I named my blog "Building my yellow brick road."  

A) If you know me at all, you know that I am overly obsessed with the Wizard of Oz.  It has been my favorite movie since I could say "rewind," which I often asked my mother to do for me so I could watch it over and over again.  I have built a pretty impressive collection of Oz paraphernalia over the years and yes, have even met 3 different munchkins (I know, kinda creepy)!  My latest Oz adventure will be going to see Wicked at DPAC in a few weeks thanks to Clint's wonderful mother who bought us all tickets! 

B) I wanted to come up with something personal to me and the changes that have been going on in my life in the past year.  It was about this time last year when I was finding out that I would be moving to a new city for graduate school which would be at least 2 hours away from Clint and all of my friends.  I was also embarking on the path to my career as an OT and learning the ropes of truly being on my own.  In essence, I was starting a new chapter in my life and I was beginning to realize it for the first time.  No more undergrad comfort zone with the sorority house of home cooked meals...I had moved on to coupon cutting, getting in bed at 10pm, and needing my morning coffee to make it through the day. Soooo....there you have it.  

"Building MY Yellow Brick Road" encompasses how I feel about finding all the pieces of this new chapter of my life and how they fit together... one brick at at time.  I am both excited and anxious about where my yellow brick road will lead and I look forward to sharing that journey with you.
