Love that Christmas Spirit
Chorus II students: Class this Thursday at 6pm; Monday at 6pm; Final is Wednesday at 5:45pm.
Last night Jeremy, Noah and I went to Books-a-million (we love bookstores... WITH CAFES... LOL). Yes, the usual holiday atmosphere was present. After perusing the entire bookstore for books and magazines to read, we settled ourselves down into the cafe for the duration. Jeremy sat facing the inside of the bookstore and I sat facing the window (Noah sat sleeping). I could not quite get a hold of myself because the noise coming from behind me was so giddy and made my insides want to burst. I tried looking in the reflection of the mirror to see who this sound was coming from. Finally I managed to turn in my seat and pretend to look at the people behind her. This lady was accompanying the Christmas carols played through the store's sound system at the top of her humming voice. She sat oblivious to everything around her and completely immersed in her book. It was TERRIFIC!!! I love what the Christmas Spirit does to people.
CA update: Last week I had the privilege of going back to CA for my future sister-in-law's (Heather Short) bridal shower. Noah and I flew with my Mother-in-law (Sis.Karen Wilbanks) and Sister-in-law (Tiffany Wells). We had a great time visiting, shopping, going to parties, and eating at favorite old haunts. Here's some pictures of our trip.
