A Little of This, A Little of That

Life is sprinting along right now in the most hectic but delightful way. Our church hosted a twelve night revival in mid-January, with twelve of the world's best preachers coming to church to speak life and truth over our church. We had people come all the way from Canada, California, England and more just to attend. It was a whirlwind, and by the end of the twelve nights (that ended up feeling like one super long day... I don't think I saw the sun for days) I was drained and exhausted but so humbled and honored to have led our production teams through such an incredibly epic (and I hesitate to ever call anything epic, but in this case, very little else applies) event.

Since then, I'm finally starting to feel like a human again. We're nailing down more wedding plans - we've picked the linens (a mix of burlap and slate gray pintuck!), started collecting ladders for our reception space (one of the details I'm most excited about), attending our Dave Ramsey classes each week, AND I finally received the call that my dress is in! I'm so in love with my gown and can't wait to try on the one that I'll be wearing down the aisle. Next Friday I'm so excited to head to J. Major's to slip it on with my mom and mother-in-law-to-be accompanying me. I can't wait to spend this special day with two such extraordinary women! We won't start fittings on Friday, but we will make sure that there's nothing wrong it and take a look at what tweaks we will need to make before April.

On Friday night, the fella and I took a dance class at the Y with dance extraordinaire The Lobster and her He-Lobster. We had such a blast learning the East Coast swing and Rumba. Our first dance will be to Ray LaMontagne's "You Are the Best Thing," and being two of the whitest people around we're more than happy to learn a move or two, so we don't stand swaying prom-style at the reception.

This weekend I've been busy work, but the highlight has been the fella landing a new gig as a chef at a fabulous privately owned, high-end restaurant in town! He starts Thursday, and the opportunity is really incredible. We are so excited for this next step in our lives and his career. Goodness, I love this man!
