Dear Readers,

I apologize profusely for my lack of posting, but, for whatever reason, I am suddenly lacking inspiration. Please excuse me as I take a bit of a blogging hiatus. Never fear, though, I'll continue to check in on your lovely blogs over my absence.

Life is good.

Service Saturday

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to take part in a really neat thing that my youth group does every Saturday. I served on Saturday as a part of a "Service Saturday" and I had the greatest time.

We went to a farm about fourty-five minutes away that grow organic vegetables to give to people in our area who aren't, for whatever reason, able to get nutritious food on a regular basis. I'm not quite sure if they sell it to those people or if they give it away, but I'm sure it is such a blessing to people who aren't used to having access to fresh produce.

After our group of about thirty middle and high schoolers got there (a few of us got a bit lost...) the guy in charge, Steve, explained to us what we were going to be doing. My group of seven was assigned a row of vegetation about 100 yards long. We were told that these were collard greens and that we were supposed to pick off the good leaves and put them into one of the big blue buckets that were lying around.

As we were picking, everyone was conversing and lots of new friends were made. It was such a fantastic experience and I feel so blessed to have been lucky enough to be a part of it.

Giving back to a community that you're a part of is such a great feeling and I can't wait until we get to go back to help them distribute the vegetables to the people who need them.

After that ended (about 1:00), I went to get a much-needed haircut and then I babysat for hBh and wBg. They were so adorable and I can't believe how big they're getting!

How was your Saturday spent? I hope it was doing something you love.

Have a great Sunday! I'm off to church in the AM, then I have a Youth Vestry meeting with pretty much my favorite group of people in the world, then confirmation class, lunch, hopefully a play with Na and AlPal, and then Youth Group. Whew! It's going to be a busy day, but those are the kind I love.

Friday Five

The Friday Five is making a comeback! Back in November, I did a Friday Five about my five favorite things about November. Since it's the beginning of March, I thought I'd share my top five favorite things about this month.

1.) March Madness! I'm so excited to see my Tar Heels play in the tourney.

2.) St. Patrick's Day. For me, Saint Patty's Day signals the beginning of spring.

3.) The earth is waking up! I feel like March is when everything starts to turn green.

4.) Only one more month until my birthday! And this year, it's a super sweet sixteenth.

5.) Spring sports. I love spring track, tennis, soccer, baseball, softball and lacrosse. It's such a fun time in the life of the school because lots of people come out for the sporting events and the weather is really nice. Our Girl's Tennis team (above) has been #1 in the state for 4 years and counting!

What are your favorite things about March?

Happy Friday!!

I did it.

I broke down and finally bought the VV skirt I posted about here.

It should arrive in 2-5 days and I couldn't be more excited. Thank you all so much for your input, your enthusiastic yeses (or whatever is the plural of yes) were definitely the strongest deciding factor.

Y'all are the best.

Happy Thursday!

March Madness

Well, y'all, we're officially into March, which means it's almost time to start gearing up for March Madness. Who's excited?

In my family, you never need an excuse to wear Carolina blue, but this month gives us an excuse to go all out.

I've picked out some of my favorite things to help you show your team spirit all month long. Enjoy!

The Gameday Girls always has adorable ways to display team pride. From earrings to bracelets to headbands, they have it all! And even if they don't offer your school's specific colors, they'll custom make your piece with the colors you want.

Adorable, right?

Go Tar Heels!
