MIA from March to April

Is it just me or did April appear out of nowhere? I have been back in Seattle for one week and the days are whizzing past me, faster and faster by the minute. Can I say it was simply glorious to be home? Ah! I will never not love being in Texas. I drank more sweet tea than was probably legal, saw bluebonnets by the thousands, and hugged many a neck I had not seen in months. It was only a week and a half away from the Emerald City, but it was exactly the refresher I needed.

As many of you read in my last post, I am going to Oklahoma State in the fall for grad school! It has been a whirlwind of a week sorting out the details, signing a lease, and dreaming of decorating my new place. I am thrilled to be going back to school, and God has abundantly provided in the financial factory! Praise Him from whom all blessings flow! It is a bittersweet celebration as I am in no hurry to leave my Seattle community.

When in Texas, I had the joy of grabbing lunch with Victoria of Happily Ever Strader. This gal is a pure gem and her heart is bigger than a Texas sunset! Her passion for Christ and pursuing His will in every area of her life is absolutely stunning, and the laughter shared over Torchy's Tacos (which I now highly recommend!) will not soon be forgotten. I also wandered into more than one Anthropologie before the week was through. I just can't stay away! I have had my eye on a set of dinnerware that will finally come home with me this weekend. Actually it will be shipped home; a second cross-country move in my VW beetle is in the near future and I can use all the space I can get.

Once in Wacotown I spent a delightful amount of time with former roommates, friends that drove in from out of state, and fellow theatre people. That city always does my heart a world of good! Baylor is growing and changing more and more, a new stadium mere months from being completed and hype continually growing for its programs. I saw dear friends simply wow an audience with their performance of Moliere's The Learned Ladies then spent Saturday relaxing in the sunshine with some of the best people I know. I may move ten, twenty, a hundred times but Baylor will always be home.

This week begins my second children's show, Peter Pan, and I can't wait to share the process with you. There is plenty more to fill you in on, but that's enough for a Monday. I hope your week is off to a grand start!
