Weekend Reading

Happy Weekend!

Everyone warned that February was going to be crazy busy filled with Diocesan Convention, assemblies, board meetings, and many other events. Well they weren't joking and we only finished week one! And it's not done yet. Tomorrow, yes, Saturday, the Foundation staff is meeting to review 2013 and prepare our presentation for convention.

But the exciting news is I finally got the keys to my new place! I'm officially moving in on Sunday! Stay tuned for a blog post this week all about it. To give a quick preview though, I moved from that one room in the guest house where my bathroom doubled as a kitchen to a two bedroom, one bath duplex with a real kitchen!

On another note, a year ago today I was at discernment weekend deciding whether YASC was the faithful next step for me. I've never regretted my decision. That one weekend set me on a course of changing my life and beginning new adventures!

And these people were all there with me choosing to begin new adventures and experience amazing cultures, traditions, food, people, etc.
