Hello from March already

Hmm, realizing I haven’t put a “life update" out here in a while. Hello world! Let’s see, where to begin… Maybe pictures will best tell the story:
District Conference with the my church’s high schoolers in January
Pool & Wii with Game Night Crew
Super Bowl party with Bible study folks
“Winter Camping”
OK, this one deserves an explanation. My college roommate Jocelyn & I planned on doing winter camping a few weekends ago. When it came right down to it, it was too much to pull together in the midst of busy lives, so Joce came to hang with me for the weekend! We decided to “go domestic” and work on knitting/crocheting projects. I asked Joce to help me figure out how to put together an afghan that Katie and I had knitted a while ago for Ray & Becky’s wedding (we won’t talk about how long ago THAT was), and she ended up helping me actually do it! It was a lot of work, but we did get out for a ski and for some coffee – all in all a lovely weekend. And R & B liked the end result – yipppeee!
The winter has also included a few night flying trips with Javier, some other weekend trips to visit friends & family in various places, and heaps (though never enough!) of cross country skiing. I’ve had some perfectly marvelous times with my nieces and nephews, who are now 7, 5, 3, and 1 and sweeter and more precious than ever.
Oh, and I met a boy!
For New Year’s I headed over to Minneapolis to hang with Jen & Mustafa as I have for the past few years. This year we were invited to our friends Pete & Amy’s place to celebrate and meet their baby Aiden. Pete’s brother Dan happened to be visiting from Washington DC at the time, and we hit it off. Dan has now come to visit me twice, and I’m just getting back from visiting him for the weekend. Dan lives in Washington DC, so it will be interesting to see how things develop! Here are some pictures that hopefully introduce you a bit. He’s pretty amazing!
All in all things are going well… later this month I head to Colorado for another yurt trip and then to North Carolina where my baby brother is getting married! Looking forward to good times with friends/family in both locations. I’m also starting another class this month (yippee!) and hoping to finish my first knitted sweater before too long. Fun stuff, huh? :)
