Feb 15 could be my "lucky" day

I was researching festivals in Italy and came across this: Saint Faustino's Day, February 15, commemorates the saint adopted by single people in Italy. If you see a sign for a Saint Faustino Day party it's most likely a party for singles. Saint Faustino is actually the patron saint of Brescia.

So, Feb 15 looks like my day. I'll be hitting up the festivals...who knows, maybe I'll meet someone. Hahahahaha!

Introducing...Beaver Falls, PA

Here are some lovely pics of my temporary stomping grounds...

My new office building, Fern Cliffe. As someone said, it sure beats the union at GCU.

The lush green campus of Geneva College...thanks to all the rain. 

Young East...never thought I'd see the day when I thought GCU's NRA was really nice....

Week one down...many more to go

I can't believe that the end of my first week at Geneva is here. It doesn't seem possible.

It has really been a great week. I have felt so welcomed and valued since I have arrived that it has made the transition that much easier. Colleagues have invited me into their homes, taken me for meals, driven me to the grocery store, and so much more. It is such a blessing to work at a place where they truly value and care for one another. And I know that this is God's way healing and restoring some of what had been stripped from me this last year at my previous school. He is so good!

I am almost through with the Student Handbook for next year. I think that by next week at this time I will be able to send it to my boss for proofreading and then begin on our Emergency Response're all jealous, I know you are! It may sound like boring work, but in all honesty because I know where it's leading's rather exciting and I am really enjoying it.

Still, there is much to be decided and much to consider that at times it is just beyond overwhelming, but Lynda, my colleague who will be in Rome with me, has confessed feeling the same and there is something comforting about not feeling all alone. It's good to know that it's not just me. :)
