Today I am linking up with Lauren from From My Grey Desk for the weekly High Five for Friday post!
1. Chai & poetry
Iced chai, little ice, in a hot cup (try it – it’s the best!) + the poetry section at Barnes & Noble = a wonderful pick-me-up.
2. Free Chipotle?!
Chipotle is one of my favorite things. Ever. Another one of my favorite things: When restaurant employees start to recognize me. A major perk: a free-for-no-reason (other than my being a frequent customer) burrito.
3. Half-birthday celebration!!
I adore birthday celebrations. And half-birthday celebrations. And celebrations for pretty much any other reason (or no reason). Kelly and I celebrated her half-birthday this week with cupcakes cut in half!
4. Love Day Indian food feast
I celebrated Love Day with some of my favorite food and friends. So great!
5. Monies are in!
No photo for this one, but I am sooo excited that today is the deadline for trip funds. I am on the student leadership board for spiritual life at school, and I work directly with the student leaders of the spring break and summer study/service trips. It is a big feat for us to raise so much money – such a praise – and it bonds team members, so today being the final deadline to turn in funds is a joyous thing indeed.
My Week in Workouts
Ahem. I really slacked this week. AKA I “rested” every day except for Tuesday, when I did 4.76 miles on the elliptical. Hopefully I’ll make it to the gym tonight. 🙂
February 15 Joy Dare: A Gift in Losing, Finding, Making Something
Losing: At the places of desolation, I have – barebones truthfully – found God to be faithful, his love constant.
Finding: It is a beautiful thing to have your heart’s desires affirmed more and more as the years pass.
Making Something: Every Friday morning I send out a recap/announcements email to my student leaders, and the contentment that comes with seeing our strides forward is a gift to me.
