So, here’s the gang at Hope Chapel for the Christmas Eve Service. From left to right: Amy, works at LFA in San Francisco; Carolina, a junior at UNC-C; Henri, President of the Greensboro CVB; me; Cyrus, graphic artist at VIF in Durham, NC; Lauren, a fourth grade teacher / ESL teacher in Washington D.C.
We made a quick trip to Washington D.C. before the Christmas holidays. Here we are posing for a quick photo in Georgetown where we found many a good sales just in time to help Santa with his huge list of goodies for us….we, of course, were all on the NICE list.
Our trip to Washington included a stop at the Air and Space Museum. Since the purchase of my new I Phone (never had one of these fancy smanchy phones) I haven’t yet mastered the “selfie”. Lauren was much too happy to assist. Look at her head….it’s twice the size of mine….she’s gonna kill me when she reads this.
What would we do without our friends? Sometimes I think they are just as important as our family; we get to choose them after all. This is Trent & Kristi. I love them. They have three of the most vibrant, talented and loving children ever and I affectionately refer to them as my “Love Chickens”. Not exactly sure how I came up with that moniker, but I said it once and it stuck. Trent and Kristi are what I call “real people”. They work hard, play hard and love in a real way. No pretenses, no false airs, just realness. It’s hard to find that today, but when you do, you need to hang onto it and I plan on it. They are wonderful friends / family and I’m blessed to have them in my life.
