Peace, Love and Kayaks

I want everyday to be a kayak day. I really think being out on the lake kayaking does something to my soul. I highly recommend it if you haven't ever tried kayaking before. It's amazing!
This is a pic of me from Saturday. I can't imagine a better way to celebrate V-Day than paddling on the lake in the sunshine with my valentine. Incredible. :-)

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

Happy Valentine's Day!
I think conversation hearts are so super cute! Too bad they taste so gross!

I love Snoopy!
This sign makes me smile :-)
Classic Love.
Precious puppy love!
Well, isn't that a neat picture?
This picture has NOT been photoshopped. This dog was born that way! So super cute!

I <3 elephants

Spread LOVE today! Happy Valentine's!

For those who love PDA, but have cold hands...

Introducing Smitten Mittens. For those who love holding hands, but want to stay warm!

If these aren't the dorkiest thing ever, I don't know what is! (but of course, secretly I want them!)

It's so sad, but I'm naturally such a clumsy klutzy person that the first thing I thought of when I saw these was safety. If you were falling you couldn't catch yourself! So be careful if you choose to purchase some smittens this season!

Love is in the Air

In honor of valentine's day, I would like to share with you a fun little site called ILoveYouMoreThanBlank.com

It's a funny little site that takes a different twist on conversation hearts. Here are a couple examples (click to zoom in). Happy almost Valentine's Day!

Powerful Song

Christina Alguilera (of all people!) recorded a song that I heard yesterday at Watermark that was incredibly powerful. The woman who sang it in the service sang it with such sincerity and intensity that I got goose bumps. Please check it out!

Oh lord have mercy on my soul
For I have walked a sinful road
So I'm gonna get down on my knees
Beg forgiveness to help set me free
Lord have mercy on me, please

Make New Friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other gold!

This weekend was all about Old Friends, New Friends, and all the friends in between!

My weekend started out with one of my oldest friends, Joni! I actually don't even rememeber when Joni and I met, but it was sometimes around age 2 or 3 years old and we've been friends ever since. Joni has been friends with me through so much-- those awkward middle school years, summers where we practically lived at each others houses, years of church camp and choir tours, graduations, crushes and heartaches, good times and bad times. She is one of those people that I know I will be friends with until I'm a little old lady.

I was really glad that Dan had the chance to meet Joni and Rand! What a fun night we had with the Heyes!

The whole group!

Saturday was all about New friends! One of the guys in Dan's small group got married this weekend in Childress, TX so we drove out there for his wedding and reception. It was a fun time to meet all of his buddies and their wives.

What a fun weekend! :-)
