Hearts and a Rosary


Hey hey! I Hope everyone is enjoying the start of the holiday season. We finally brought our tree inside today. I named her Fredricka. She looks like a Fredricka. Pictures to come, in all likelihood. We'll be decorating tonight. Fun fun. Decorating is one of my favorite parts of Christmas. I have no idea why though. It just is.
One morning a few days ago I was walking past the coffee table in the living room and my little sister's necklace was lying on it. It was twisted into the shape of a heart. The pendent on it is also a heart. My mom and dad got it for her when they sent to the island St. Croix over the summer. It was so perfect already and all I had to do was take the picture. Hearts are very important things. And I mean that literally and figuratively. Without hearts how would we love? So today I am thankful for a brave heart that has the capability to love lots of people.


My dear friend made this leather rosary for me. My grandma was Catholic so rosaries have some sentimental value to me. My friend went on a missions trip to Honduras and he made a bunch of rosaries for the kids. He had some left over so he gave one to me. It's is friends like these that make me think of Philippians 1:3. "I thank God every time I remember you."

And so, friends, Philippians 1:3. Merry Christmas!

The Fabulous Fox Theatre

"Fabulous Light"

I took this picture at the Fabulous Fox Theatre, (hence the name "'Fabulous' Light"). My aunt and uncle got me a ticket to see Wicked for my birthday so I went with them, my cousin and her boyfriend and my other cousin, Wyndi, who is my age. It was a blast! During intermission, Wyndi and I went down to the bathroom. For all y'all who have been to the Fox, you know how incredible it is. As usual the line was long so Wyndi and I had some time to fool around. I love this picture of the light sconce on the wall. It turned out cool with the redish and blueish colors and the light and dark. I love the Fox Theatre because of how when you go into it, you can really feel like your in an Arabian Palace. It's one of my many dreams to perform there. I love the ambiance of it all. Very cool, very cool. This second picture... well, I'll let it speak for itself.

"Telephone Tourist"

This is my cousin, Wyndi. There's an old telephone booth down in the lounge outside the bathroom. We found it very cool. Wyndi lives in the middle of nowhere so she had her camera out all night for the sites of downtown Atlanta, my hometown. The phone booth was held a great deal of excitement. And, even as a native and a frequent visitor of the Fox Theatre, I must admit, I still get awestruck at the magnificence of this place.

Have a Relaxing Sunday!
