"Be joyful always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
1 Thess. 5:16-18


Yes, Missy, it is definitely time for a new post! This post is mostly pictures... enjoy :)

First...I took a trip to Williamsburg with my mom, sisters, and niece. It was a beautiful time of year to be there!

I love the fall.

I love Williamsburg.

I love my family.

I also made Ava laugh on the way home... it made my day!

It was a great weekend :)

Then, I went to Charlotte to see my college roommate get married... while I was there I got to see some of my old friends.... it was wonderful!

Kendra and I went out for her birthday

On Saturday I got to spend time catching up with some wonderful girls I don't get to see much...

Jeanie had us over for brunch....

...and we got to play with Alathea!

Leah told us about her wedding plans and offered to give us all Beta Fish... haha

Kathryn was also there... somehow I didn't get a picture of her though :( Good times...I love these girls!!

Then on Saturday night I went to see my "Charlotte family"...

(these picts are actually from my visit this summer)

Now, I am heading off to Maryland tomorrow to spend Thanksgiving with my grandmother!

We'll also be going to see some college basketball on Friday :)

Cultivating Creativity

The Apex Arts Council website just got an update... you can check it out here!

Two years ago (almost exactly) I attended a meeting with two other people interested in starting an arts council in Apex... next thing I knew I was writing grant proposals, signing incorporation papers and creating bylaws! Now, two years later, it is exciting to see many of the ideas we had back then actually becoming realities. As of the last meeting I am no longer the interim president of the Board of Directors (sounds a lot more official then it actually was, haha) now I am able to be a 'normal member' :)
