Grateful For The Good
The past three weeks have been fantastic around here! After completing another quarter of work (which I will share with you soon!) and pulling off another 4.0 (woooooo!), I had really earned a three-week break. As I mentioned earlier, I began my break with an amazing visit from my best friend and her husband. We spent their 5 day vacation enjoying the ocean, seeing wine country, and talking the hours away in our backyard. Life is good.
A few days later, we left for Nebraska to visit Walker’s family and friends because he got a bunch of time off for Independence Day. We stayed 6 days, and I managed to only take pictures of flowers at the gorgeous Sunken Garden in Lincoln. Thankfully, Walker snapped one picture of his mom and me, but I really blew it on the photo documentation responsibility!
After 6 amazing days relaxing with his family, we came home to find this bad boy waiting for us in the mailbox:
Walker opened it up, only to find the string art of yours truly gracing the pages of the centerfold!
I jumped up and down for a while in sheer excitement at the idea of seeing my stuff in print. YIPPEE! Then I checked my email, only to find my string art also featured on their distribution email!
It was a very awesome surprise to come home to! I am really hoping that the string art does well in the catalog (tell your friends — they make amazing wedding and housewarming gifts!).
Anyway, I just wanted to fill you in on my past few weeks! I am so grateful for all of the great things and people I have in my life. The past three weeks have been rejuvenating, relaxing, and a ton of fun. The first day of classes for next quarter is Thursday (TIME FLIES!), so I will be trying to wrap up all loose ends and check off my to-do lists before then!
