Today marks the end of the last full week of Summer for the Roys - yes, it appears we've already progressed into the rainy season up here, but next week Matthew officially starts his Master's program at Eastern Washington University. To be back in school again is a dream come true for Matthew - we've spent the last three years trying to find the right program...and after many closed doors, here we are, perched on the edge of a whole new season of life.
For Matthew this means papers, (more) books, teaching Music for Humanities, grading papers - in other words, academic heaven. He has already met scores of folks who have been encouraging, welcoming, and just downright fun.
As for me - I will continue on my small business venture with Alisa.
I feel so blessed to spend my days working on projects and events where I am able to tap into my creative brain and thrive.
As the events roll in, I am thankful that this sort of busy leaves me feeling recharged and excited for the next event.
Alisa has been an amazing addition, and the more we work together, I am evermore convinced of our dynamic-duo-powers.
So this next season is a brand new one for both of us...starting new things that we've dreamed about, working hard, and (hopefully!) reaping the benefits.
