Summer Break!

my view in exactly one week

Today was my first full day of the most wonderful thing a teacher can say......"Summer Break".
This morning I was in Hot Springs for a wedding of one my good college friend's younger sister. They are like family. After I was up and moving around, I went outside to leave and I felt like the starfish character in Finding Nemo when they have the dirty fish tank and then they wake up the next morning and the tank is clean. She says, "The sun is shining, the birds are singing, the tank is clean....". The 'tank is clean' part did not really apply to me, but as I walked outside in the beautiful sunshine and blue sky, I was like, "The sun is shining, the birds are singing, the sky is blue!". Micah was like, "Get in the car."
Just kidding!
He was just as happy about the weather as I was!

The wedding was held at the Anthony Chapel in Garvan Woodland Gardens. It was a beautiful chapel. Earlier in the afternoon we went to the National Park Aquarium. It was cool to see all sorts of fish, turtles, lizards, and insects. I enjoyed it and the whole time I kept telling Micah about how my sister, Mary Margaret, would LOVE it! Next time I go back to Hot Springs I want to go to the Gangster Museum that we passed on the way to the Aquarium. I love learning about Al Capone and the all that kind of stuff. I was thinking what downtown Hot Springs must have been like in that time period. I'm going to have to search for some books about it.

Now, I'm onto to preparing a summer goal list, packing for Destin, and pretty much just relaxing and splitting my time between Conway, El Dorado, and Fayetteville!

I'm also going to use this summer as a time to really get my business up and running. Remember to contact me at if you would like something or have an idea of something you would want for yourself or a gift item!
I would love to create it for you!

I would totally be all about the aquarium. You know, so many people hate spiders, and bugs, and other creepy crawly things, but they forget that they are God's creatures too.

And as for the Gangster Museum, just spend a day with me for the best gangster experience. I think Al and I have pretty much the same hustle, so you can just tag along and experience the life with me.
