1.) Eva learned my name. Eva is my new one year old friend. If you have never experienced the way your heart skips a beat when a tiny friend speaks your name for the first time, you probably won’t appreciate this. But there is something so special about kah-TEE.
2.) I got to go to NC and see where C Bear lives. And where real bears life. And where the Vanderbilts lived.
3.) The song “Down” by Mat Kearney. The best way to listen to this song is in the car, and turned up louder than your ear drums would normally put up with, and with the sun shining and when you are free-spirited enough to sing along with him at the Top of your lungs, HALLELUJAH.
4.) A sweet lady told me she likes listening to me because I “have a soothing voice”. If you think that is a weird statement and you are imagining me walking around talking to myself and someone random appreciating it, allow me to clarify: I got to teach the word of God and that was one of the pieces of feedback I got back. There are a lot of things I like hearing about the way the Lord has used me, but hearing that He spoke through me to sooth someone’s heart is probably my favorite.
5.) Boyfriend aka Husband and I get to become godparents this weekend. If you could see my face, you would see I am beaming with pride and excitement.
5 point 2) This also means I get to see my Godchildren, my aunt and uncle, and my Gram this weekend. All people whom I love dearly.
6.) I love Leigh Standley’s work (better known as Curly Girl Designs). She did a sneak peek of some of her new stuff, and this happens to be my favorite. It so perfectly captures the kind of friend we all need every now and again.
7.) C Bear agreed that if I ever get to speak soothingly for a living, she will be my hype girl. If you are confused as to what a hype girl is, check out Sophia Grace and Rosie on youtube. Rosie is the hype girl. C Bear, take notes.
8.) I got to go to NYC with Boyfriend aka Husband. I don’t even know what to say about the wonderfulness. But this picture, and in particular the hat, seems to capture it well.
9.) Live Forever by Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors. This song has been my anthem recently. It has so perfectly captured so many things. The NBA picked it up for a commercial, which is excellent for Drew and Ellie. But it is just excellent in general.
10.) “And to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness.” Romans 4:5
