I recently had the privilege of taking some college portraits of a dear family friend, out on the farm where she’s grown up. It has been a delight for met o watch her become such a beautiful young lady, to be her Confirmation sponsor and now to see her off to Texas A&M! Gig’em Bethany!
My college friend Katie, who blogs over at Songs Kate Sang (gorgeous blog she has there!) has just embarked on the most amazing journey ever – adopting a little boy! The story of this little one, and the great love that Katie, Brian and their other two children have for him brings me such great joy and happiness! I am filled with joy!
I went to karaoke last night. at a bar. on northgate (college student party street in College Station). all theatre people (who sing extremely well, btw). mostly a bunch of college kids. and a few other ‘grown-ups’. I had a blast!
see me laugh-crying? yes. we’re singing ‘take a chance on me’ by ABBA :)
I’m a tad embarrassed to admit that I have a child who doesn’t often care to read. She’d rather be singing, jumping, dancing, looking out the window, making a craft. And yet (miracles do happen) I found her on the back porch, curled up in a chair with a stack of books, reading in the sunlight. It WAS Fancy Nancy, and she DID have two mermaids with her. But she was READING and loving it. My mommy heart was happy. And I snuck this photo!
oh, and that book giveaway!
