|My family dog, Lucy - I brought her home on Easter weekend twelve(ish) years ago! Snapped her photo yesterday.|
It's April 1st! Did you get tricked on this April Fool's Day? Thankfully, this was the first year in a while that I haven't gotten tricked. I'm usually the most gullible person when it comes to April Fool's Day, but this year, no one even attempted to fool me, thank goodness. I'm not a big fan of the concept, usually end up feeling like crying, hahaha - way to be an emotional, over-reacting girl about the whole thing.
Hapa-happy Easter! I spent most of my long, long weekend indoors, clicking away on my assignments, but managed to escape for a few fun moments. Regardless of the amount of time I spent on school work, I enjoyed my weekend immensely. Dan was off all weekend, too, so any moments that I had free I got to spend them with him. Yay!
This week, I'm thankful for:
651 - the whole reason of it being a long weekend - the death and resurrection of my Lord, who died so that I can be free!
652 - celebrating Easter with my family and Dan's, as well as with our church community.
653 - chocolate goodness - Dan and I skipped giving each other treats this year, since we knew that we'd get oodles from our families. We were right :)
654 - the final countdown for school! There are only a couple of more hair-pulling weeks until I'm done for the semester.
655 - not feeling like a giant procrastinator, which is usually how I feel. So far, I feel like this week's assignments are manageable.
656 - Heidi running her first marathon. What a champ! (Everytime I say or type the word "marathon" I think in my head the way they say it on Run Fatboy Run - marathun.)
657 - getting to have a phone chat with Kelsie this evening - and finishing up a design project, too!
658 - meeting up with a special preggo friend before her little one arrives - which is any day now.
659 - spending two days last week at an incredible conference: Growing a Creative Economy. Amazing!
670 - making up Easter bags for my little brothers and Dan's Sunday School class. It was fun shopping and bagging the treats.
What about you? What are you currently thankful for?
