This afternoon I switched out my winter wardrobe for my spring/summer one. I know this is risky, because here in Johnson City it isn't consistently warm until about mid-April, but this was my only free Saturday until I leave for China and then I'm moving into a new apartment when I get back. So, it had to be done today! In addition to swapping out my clothes, I got the rest of my room all cleaned up and dusted. Such a great feeling!
One of the things I love about my room us that it is full of different colors, textures, and patterns. I was sitting on the floor in the middle of my room at one point, and no matter which way I turned or where I looked, there was something pretty and fun to look at, so I thought I'd share some of that with you!
Tonight I went to a storytelling event - that's not something you do every day! My friend Christian aka CT is graduating with his Masters in Storytelling this May, and tonight's event was part of his Capstone project. He runs marathons and tonight he told the story of how that came to be and his pursuit of running in the Boston Marathon. In addition to running the Boston Marathon, he would love to be able to share his story with others and encourage them to follow their dreams. I met my friend Megan there, and she brought along the three little girls she babysits for. The event was held in the auditorium at Milligan, and once we were seated I noticed that the chairs had those little "desks" that pop up from the side. I pulled mine up and then asked the girls if they wanted to take notes and pretend they were in college, to which they exclaimed "Yea!" So Megan tore some sheets of paper out of her journal and I dug out some pens from the bottom of my purse. Their notes on the evening were adorable!
Ok, I know this isn't the most interesting or even the best quality picture. But I didn't want to use the flash when it would be obvious that I wasn't taking a picture of CT. Also, see that cute little purse? Megan made that the other night. In one night. Cause she was bored and felt like making something. Seriously, Megan? And I get excited when I do a good job sewing a button on a shirt.
