2017 Every day. (06.25.17)

I love taking pictures, the every day, the mundane, the big, the fun, the celebrating, even the hard. Images I want to remember.  So, this year, I’m documenting my everyday. A photo a day for my FB/IG and then writing the stories of each on my blog weekly.

I had a group project this week for my MBA course, and we had to include a video of a teammate who was out of town for class, but it was WAY too long and needed to be edited. Thank goodness for this Mac I have now, and the fact that iMovie is simple enough to figure out! I taught it to myself and edited the video from 12+ minutes to 6:45 and inserted to the presentation.  Whew.

I spent a lot of Sunday at my computer working on project and paper, but took a study break, air’d up my bike tires and went for a 7.5 mile sunset bike ride. It was a beautiful evening out! 


Sunday’s sermon was on Psalm 23 which has stayed with me all week, such good truths and reminders of God providing our needs and leading us through tough times to better days ahead, never leaving us.  This little piece is from my grandparents house, it’s very simple picture on wood, with a portion of Ps 23 printed, and reminds me of them. They lived a faithful life, pretty simply and done well.


Tuesday was our last class meeting for Summer I and also finished up the first half of my MBA!  WOO HOO!! We gave a team presentation, and this was my group for this class, minus one who was traveling, but appeared by video. Every team I’ve been a part of has worked really well together and for that I am very grateful!


Wednesday I was out for Teacher Externship visits to our Industry Partners and took a tour through a shop that our teachers had been working in, which meant suiting up in hard hat and safety glasses.  This is one of my favorite things about my job, getting to see so many industries across our city and the opportunities for our students in CTE programs!

And, just for comparison, I was in a hairnet a couple of hours prior touring behind the scenes of major kitchen operations, catering and freezer food storage. #qualitycontrol #safetyinspections


Thursday night I went with a few of my friends to see one of my all time favorite musicians, Jack Ingram. We hit a new-ish venue that’s close to home and was such a good show and fun girls night out! Each of these girls are from a different “box” in my life, but it’s fun to introduce friends and mix up the boxes!

I’ve seen Jack’s shows for nearly 20 years, and every show through the years is just as good as the last one!  I love people who write songs, tell the stories and perform them. Fun fact from this night, Jack is a writer on Miranda Lambert’s current hit “Tin Man”, which isn’t my favorite song on the radio because it’s so dang sad. But, having a heart is a good thing to feel all the feelings, even when they are the hardest!


I have Friday’s off during the summer (but work 4 10-hour days Mon – Thurs) and have tried to plan my Fridays with friends I don’t get to see often.  One of my besties and I met up at Snooze for breakfast, several cups of coffee, lots of chatting and a little shopping after.  Such a fun morning and if you find yourself at Snooze for breakfast,  this is my favorite combo to split with a friend:  egg white frittata and pancake flight!  Yummmm!!


While shopping on Friday, I picked up these fun summer floral + pom pom dishtowels at Paper Source, and got them on the stove early Saturday morning. If you’ve never been in a Paper Souce, that  store speaks my love language of paper, pens, little books, organization and such. Paired with breakfast & a bestie who shares the same love of paper things, you can understand how Friday was definitely a favorite!! Also, I love apartment living. There are days I would like a house, simply for the added space and hosting friends, but really, this is just enough space for me.  That sermon on Sunday, my pastor talked about our community we’ll have in heaven, like living in apartments, sharing a courtyard and life. I’ve thought a lot about community this week, that sermon is worth your time. Click here to listen….
