My 26th Birthday...

Thank you to everyone who sent wonderful birthday wishes or called me for my birthday.. It was incredibly sweet.  So grateful!

Heredes, the wonderful husband that he is, did exactly what I wanted.  We had lunch at my parents home. Corn lasagna- stinkin' delicious!!!!!!!!!!!  

Before we ate though, Heredes revealed his gift for me.  A one of kind art piece by H himself. Beautiful monochromatic abstract pieces. [with a little collage thrown in there..hehehe].  AND Celine Dion concert tickets for this friday!!! woohooo!!! Thank you baby.

My parents got me a gorgeous jewelry box.  Thank you!!!!!! And my sister got me my favorite movie "Never Been Kissed" and the cutest card ever. Thank you to those who gave me gift cards, money, and other gifts.  :)  

On another note internship and school are going well so far. I am exhausted, but worth it right?! :)  lol.   Updates later to come.

I Love January...

Why? Well, I love January because so many that I love have a birthday in January. [Not that I don't love you if your birthday is not in January]

First, it was my brother's birthday on Wednesday. I posted- leave him a comment.

Today is baby Legend's 1st Birthday. His picture to the left. That's our student pastors- Scot and Holly- baby. They are a great couple.

It is also my youth pastor's, Mr. J, birthday today. He passed away on August 4, 2004. Today is his 33rd birthday. Katrina put up a video of him and the "band" when we played at Dade Christian. Yes, check it out here. You may find some familiar faces. Thank you MR. J for being a great youth pastor and so much more. I see the impact in my life, my husband's, and so many others.

Katrina thank you for always reminding us of his great love he had for us, the youth, and the lost. I love you sooooooooooooo much!!!!!! Thank you for being the first to show me a pastor's wife's heart. Katrina do you have a picture of him?? I don't have a digital one. Pass it along please :)

Some other great people to celebrate: My DAD!!! Pastor Ricky- tomorrow. Donna Hawley, my cousin Marcella, and me- on the same day. My cousin Mayaya. Oh my, way to many.

As I close: why not leave a message to Katrina letting her know we are celebrating Mr. J's day as he watches from above. Leave it here.

School Has Begun..

The New Year has started with a New and FINAL semester. Tuesday I went back to school. I begin my internship. This week is orientation week and Still Life drawing. I have begun to ingrain in my mind the fact that there will be no life these next four months. If you see me remind me of that please. I was a bit nervous, but when Tuesday was done, I am really excited that I am finishing up to be a teacher- an art teacher. If you could just pray for me for dedication and focus. I'll keep you updated.

*Thank you Friend for the awesome sketch book and mini model. :) Feel Better

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year...

Yes... it has been a busy month in December... but wow, what a December!!! What a year!!! There's been up's and down's and praying and hoping that in 2009 I will embrace the new year in a whole different, more JOYFUL way.

This year I kick it off by starting my INTERNSHIP!!! What? I can't believe I am so close to graduation. It is something I have been yearning for so much. I also have goals i want to set and accomplish, but I haven't worked on the list yet- but I will.

I know my husband is starting a new look for his blog, and maybe I'll join him, but I hope that I can continue blogging faithfully and share with you all some inspiring, transparent, encouraging things. ;)

Happy New Year!
