Sicker than sick and heartbroken that I had to bail out of leading worship at the Women Alive Conference on Friday night. Thank GOODNESS my friend NL was able to save me (after what seemed like a million turn-downs from others...) and it all worked out. I was able to lead on the Saturday and it was a really fantastic time. I love being a wife, a mom, a friend - but at the very core of me, I am a worshipper. And that is where I feel that I am WHO I am the most.
And coming up? Well - we leave for Miami on Friday morning and are off to the Caribbean on a 7 day cruise for our 10th Anniversary. Wait. Did you see me jump up and down? NO??? Look again .... see. There. I did it again.
We're going on the Liberty of the Seas with another couple and sans enfants. Yes. It's true. No kids. And let me tell you, I adore my children. I have WONDERFUL boys. But they'll be there when I get back - and I intend on soaking up every ray, sleeping in, eating without interruption and wearing slinky black dresses for dinner *grin*. Our itinerary includes Puerto Rico and St. Maartin. Ooo. I did that little jig again.
It's been a month of holidays ... but the sad thing is, is that we have nothing planned after that. And that is such a shame - I'm getting good at packing *wink*.
SO - Phoenix was LOVELY - full of "family time" and sunshine. AND I was able to get a lot of digipages done ... here are a few to enjoy.
