Last weekend was supposed to be our girls trip for my sisters and I to head up to the San Juan Islands in Washington and go sea kayaking -- the area is known for its orcas and they would be beyond cool to see! We wanted to enjoy some "last" time together before Tiera starts her job and we all go in different directions, but it clearly wasn't meant to be. Kendra ended up having to work so Mom and Dad came in her place, but then with Memorial Day traffic we missed our morning ferry to Friday Harbor and thus missed our kayak trip. The outfitters were nice and gave us a voucher but it was still quite disappointing not to be out on the water. Instead, we spent the day riding the ferry around the islands and walking around the quaint little harbors, which rival Sisters, OR in cuteness. A fun little day trip for the family anyway, if not what was expected. Plus it was wonderful to be without my computer so literally all I could do was relax, look out the window, and read my book.
The rest of Memorial Day weekend went fast, with a fun crepe brunch on Monday with the family and then a sisters shopping trip. Tiera and I ended up having a pop party late that night (pop parties are when you drink Fresca and eat pretzels while working on homework in the same room, usually at least 11 pm or later), which we haven't had since our days of studying side-by-side in high school. That was fun. And then, because we were already the only ones in the house awake, we decided to stay up until 3 having good bonding. Getting up at 7 to drive down to school was less fun, but it was worth it.
I'm a twenty-something from the Pacific NW making home in new places as I follow where God leads.
My intent is to show Christ's love to the world and use business to solve some of the social problems we face: hunger, illiteracy, healthcare, economic hardship. For now, I'm in a stage of learning. A little adventuring, a few books, some good friends, and a whole lot of prayer and life runs on.
