The Game

Yesterday I had to play a game that I frankly stink at. I rarely play this game, and when I do, I don't know the rules because they always change. It can be frustrating, unless you have someone on your team who knows the rules. Fortunately yesterday I did, so it wasn't so bad and I had a lot of fun trying to figure out the rules to win the game.

We were trying to find the cheapest airline tickets possible, on a certain airline with only one layover at certain times of the day. It was getting pretty ridiculous because I realized that depending on which flight you selected, the return flight options would change, so you might lose the option you'd already decided you wanted. Very confusing. I had to get help from someone who knew the rules of the game, and then it got fun.

We ended up winning, by getting what we wanted in the end; and since the price that originally went up at the end, dropped back down after we bought the tickets, it was even better!

Let's just say that I hope I remember the rules when we buy our tickets for our visit to see Mom and Dad later this year!

The itch

I think it's hard to call yourself a writer if you haven't written anything worth its salt in a couple years. I've had the itch for a while now to get writing again, but I seem to only get these great ideas after I've gone to bed. By the time I wake up the next morning, I can't remember any of my ideas! I guess I'll have to pull a Seinfeld and keep a pad of paper and a pen by the bed...

Over

Evening of the ArtsWell, the Evening of the Arts is over. It was so great! If you missed it, you missed out. I feel like any event we put effort into, because we're doing it for the Lord, is done with excellence, and each event seems to be even more excellent than the last. The event this past weekend was so incredible people are already asking when the next one will be. I want to know if we can recover from this one first!

This was the first event I helped with beyond how I normally help in my day to day job. I love my job, but this seemed so much more fulfilling: to actually, physically help this event come together was pretty cool. We were all exhausted by the end of the night (or morning?), but it was so worth it!


I can't wait to be at work tomorrow just to go over it with the guys, who always do such an amazing job, but went above and beyond this time, just like always. This time I just got to see it firsthand.


God is so great, isn't He? We had so many people come out and experience how the Lord loves creativity and expression and the arts, and has given those gifts to us. How boring life would be without these things...

Rigoletto

I love my Netflix! I searched for a movie I haven't seen in almost 15 years, and didn't think I'd found the right version until it came to my house yesterday, and we started to watch it. It was so awesome I could hardly sit still!

Rigoletto is an old opera and the story is probably what the story of Beauty & the Beast is based on (they're very similar). The version of Rigoletto I like is made by this Christian company that likes to make clean, wholesome movies for kids and families to watch together (The version I like is a musical and not an opera.). Everybody should see this movie. It's great!

My Photographer Husband

Well, it finally feels like home. We've been here ten months and finally today hung some pictures on the walls. Why'd it take so long you ask? Because we have been given a deadline.

Our church is having an Evening of the Arts to showcase the talent God has given to our church community (dance, music, songwriting, poetry, photography, etc.).

My husband has been invited to show several pieces at this upcoming event, so we've been busy for the past couple weeks getting them ready. The first three (the main three) are ready to go as of now, and we have several more to work on throughout this week. We're really excited about this event, and Hubby showing his work, because we think it's really cool (and I think he's amazing!)!

I'm extra excited because all the work we're showing for the event is being framed to go on our walls in our house, so now it feels like a home because there are pictures on our walls! Yay!
