i'm at the height of my dream!

I'm making lists like it's going out of style! People will start arriving for the RVA weekend tomorrow, and classes start Thursday. I'm LOVING all the list making and I hit a point tonight where I knew we'll be able to check everything off in time, it's doable! Everyone is working really hard, and it's so inspiring to me :) And I'm getting really excited to meet people, hang out with Lacy, teach my classes, take some classes, go to Jeremy's concert and see it all come together!!
A few things that make Elsie so cute & special: - She asks me how to spell words a lot. And she asks me from the other side of the loft. - She really does talk like she typieeees. And she has the cutest voice! - She takes really good care of her friends and her boyfriend - She has some realllly funny stories! - Often has paint in her hair - She keeps good secrets - She does little dances in empty aisles at target - She's the hardest worker I know (and it's really really inspiring) - Jeremy is hooked on some conspiracy theories, and she listens attentively to all of them - She's got endless good ideas - Has cute cute outfits and changes a few times a day - Her and Jeremy are big into Starbucks and they've shown me some really yummy drinks (I've probably had it 11 times since I got here) - She has a really tender good heart I love her so much... we've really become friends, and she's really special to me. I'm one lucky girl!

  2. 2 Angela's in a row...ha!
    Yes she does have a sweet voice...I'm so glad you were able to experiance this. Those were nice little insights to what Elsie is like. Thats funny that she dances in the empty aisles. I'm saddened that I'm going to miss out on this great opportunity...so I'm looking forward to all the pictures and posts to come. Love you too LA!!!
