August 20, 2007 was my first official day as Resident Priestess at the Temple.

In some ways it is hard to believe 7 years have passed, yet in others I have profoundly felt the passage. I am today even more grateful, more honored to be here holding a very special and sacred space, than I was then.

To awake each morning only steps from the Temple is an amazing privilege.

When I applied for the position of Priestess, I remember saying at my interview I was willing to make a 5 to 15 year commitment.  Now, almost half way through that timeline, I am more willing than ever to face the challenges/joys/growth another 7 plus years would bring.

I thank all of you who have helped make my residency here such a wonderful experience.

Blessed be!
