Tomorrow marks my last day at Starbucks Greystone.
I'm sitting here at my store watching some of the greatest people working behind the counter, each with a different and hilarious christmas hat on. Garrett is wearing a green santa hat, but it's spring loaded. Eric has Mickey Mouse ears coming out of his santa hat. Kyle's santa hat fits more like a child's toboggan in Charlie Brown or something. Ryan is wearing a red velvet pimp hat with white fluffy trim. Where else can you find co-workers such as these??
These people are priceless to me, and I have to say goodbye. There are so many things I shall miss.
It's not all so bad though. I get to openly date my wonderful boyfriend, Brantley. The people at my new store are very nice and accepting of me. I'm 5 minutes closer to work. That's about it.
On a different note, I celebrated the ever-so-important 22nd birthday this past Saturday. I spent it with my family. We went shopping for my birthday presents, and man did they overdo it. I received quite a nice entertainment system for my bedroom. Wow. It's unbelievable! Brantley got me an hour-long asian acupressure massage, dinner at The Melting Pot, and the most precious flowers (those were a surprise!). He checked with a florist to see if my favorite flower was in season, but not until spring! I cannot believe how lucky I am to have found a man such as Brantley. He is making me realize how much I deserve and how much I have to give. That SOUNDS completely snooty, but everyone deserves the very best for them! It's important that people can see how much they are worth.
I am so blessed.
I was blessed in heartache, and I am blessed in love.
God has done a lot of work on me this past year.
