Happy Thursday friends! I'm gonna continue doing Thursday Thoughts but I'm no longer going to have a link-up. It's been a while (over 9 months!) and I think I'm a little burnt out, but feel free to continue writing yours!
To start off, I recently participated in Chelsea and Hollie's inspirational card swap and was paired up with Amanda, who I'm 95% confident is my soul sister. Reading her blog, I found myself nodding, smiling, or wanting to hug her while saying "Oh my gosh, that's me!" It's weird and awesome. We were supposed to send one card to the other person as inspiration, and both Amanda and I kind of bent the rules. Amanda went above and beyond as a swap partner and took some of my Instagram photos from my blog (I spy Baylor, the view from my parents' house, my mantel, the Brazos river, and more!) then put some of her favorite quotes, some of my favorite quotes, and a poem or two on them. This was in addition to the sweet card she sent me with some lovely words (she's clearly a writer!). Yeah, be jealous, my swap partner > your swap partner.
So glad you all loved Kelly and Matt's story yesterday! If you haven't checked out her blog yet, I totally recommend it. I spent all yesterday searching through the archives, smiling and wishing we were best friends, plus they just got their engagement photos back and they're beautiful!
I know I'm a little behind on the times, but I love Spotify (thanks, Em!). I do not love that I have to have a Facebook (grumble, grumble) to use Spotify. Don't worry, I made a fake Facebook with an old hotmail email account so I could get around having to reactivate my actual Facebook. Winning!
RP3 is coming to Waco tomorrow to visit, and I'm psyched to see his face again (err, in person and not on a computer screen). I think I'm cooking dinner; what should I make? Any suggestions?
My class has an exam in an hour and a half, so I'm wasting time until then by re-reading my dissertation prospectus and groaning over having to fix it. Life of a grad student, right? Hope your week is wrapping up quite nicely!
