Fun at the "Lake"

Before Matt starts the craziness tomorrow, we decided to take advantage of our time together and the really nice weather.
I kind of can't believe how nice it has been here. I mean, I remember the winters being nice, but it has been almost 80 all week. I really enjoy it, but at the same time I think it's so bizarre.
Anyway, right by our house is this really nice community called The Islands. They are beautiful homes that surround a man-made lake. We went for a walk by this lake the other day and had a ton of fun.

One of these days I will have to take Addi to this lake and feed the ducks. There were SO MANY ducks there!
Well... Matt starts school tomorrow. Here we go again I guess?
I have mixed feelings.
I'm glad to be starting to get the first week over with (it's always the worst), but I'm dreading it, too. Not for me, but for him. I feel so bad for him, seriously I would never choose to go to law school in a million years. It really is as bad as they say. BUT...
I decided for 2012 to have a positive outlook. I have started changing the way I think about things. It has not been easy. But I want to be more happy. I noticed last semester I started getting negative and it made me unhappy. It's so easy to get negative and complain when things don't go your way.
So here's to a new outlook and a happier life.
I've tried really hard to be optimistic this past week and it has honestly made me a happier person and I have more patience with Addi, and I find myself just wanting to serve Matt and do anything to make him happy.
I am liking this new outlook already.
