I am officially done with my pediatrics rotation! Definitely bittersweet. I loved the office staff, working with my former pediatrician, and all the sweet kids, but it just means I am one step closer to graduation! The main thing I learned is that strep bacteria can cause any symptoms. Patient presents with a rash? Could be strep. Ear pain? Probably strep. We did sooo many strep swabs and diagnosed SO much strep pharyngitis, it's a miracle I didn't get it [knock on wood].

I am the proud new owner of an iPhone 6! I know, I am like 2 years late on the iPhone 6 trend. My iPhone 4s had basically been worn slam out so I was SUPER exited when I got this in the mail this week! The camera quality is 500x better than my old phone. And how adorable is my new Tory Burch case? Love it!

We celebrated my Pop Pop's 90th birthday on Tuesday night. He is the most handsome, generous, loving man I know. He has recently started struggling with mild dementia, which has been so hard on the family. He is starting to forget his family, but he still has his hilarious sense of humor and loving personality. His favorite hobbies are riding his bike [which he does every. single. day.] and giving away his money to those in need. He was raised in a very poor family and worked hard his entire life and now is able to donate his money to those less fortunate. Gosh, I love him.

I had some inquiries about my necklace from Monday's post. It is an "Akola" necklace, which means "to work" in Ugandan dialect. All the necklaces are made by the women in Uganda and the money goes towards helping the women and children living in extreme poverty. I love the necklaces but love the story even more!

Linking up with April and Amanda
