Don't ain't Boone's

Wine and Gregorian Chant.

I knew I missed school....


Who needs sleep?

"But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. He will be like the tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when the heat comes; its leaves are always green, it has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit." Jeremiah 16:7-18

No time for updates or pictures, but hopefully I will soon. School starting has been a major life change and a difficult transition. Thankfully, the struggle is intermittently interrupted by blessings of the divine sort...a gorgeous stroll from class to encouraging word from a professor...a cheeky grin from a new friend...a much needed call from an old one.

Thank you for your prayers and encouragement as we begin this new adventure! I will post more when I can!

Adam Sandler--Worthy


We moved! And yes, I survived. I know this is terribly shocking.

I've been frustrated, confused, elated, stressed, teary, blessed, distraught, thankful, and most of all...prayed for. Thank GOODNESS!

Moving to Columbia one day and then starting work the next day was quite the wake-up call. Seeing how disorganized everything is in the band department was another. Realizing that our parking passes had us in Virginia Parking Garage (affectionately referred to as VAG...) at the complete opposite corner of the campus than our work building was yet another. That 20 minute walk with our instruments, books, and laptops was the biggest wake up call of them all.

Back to Schoooooool!!!!

Thanks to an amazing music dept. secretary, we aren't parking in VAG anymore.

Women everywhere are cheering, I'm sure.

I know I am.

Right now, I'm completely spent and I still have two more history chapters to outline. Oh...and I have yet to practice for the day. And I really want to make this awesome gluten free pudding cake mix I found at the farmer's market on Saturday.

And I wonder why I got fat the first time around....

Back to Schooooool!

Go to bed already!

My eyelids are globbing body is silently pleading for cozy pj' ears are absorbing the faintest peep and magnifying it into dolby surround sound...

Trials of the day slurring through my memory so fast I can barely hold on...

I think it's time to rest.

To give up...

go to bed...

and start anew with the early morning light.


Maybe the semi-early light.

"I remember my affliction and my wandering,
the bitterness and the gall.
I well remember them,
and my soul is downcast within me.
Yet this I call to mind
and therefore I have hope:

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
For his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.”

Lamentations 3:19-24
