We woke up to about 3 inches of snow on Friday morning.
Once you got about halfway down the mountain there was no snow. Guess that's what they mean when they say "snow in the high elevations".
It was a great getaway, especially during this very busy time of year. Being up that high was amazing and, as was mentioned more than once, gave you the feeling that you could reach up and touch heaven. Here's hoping that sometime over this Christmas Holiday you get a glimpse of heaven!
In case I don't blog again in the next week or so, Merry Christmas from our house to yours!

I am thankful that today I got to spend time with family and friends.
I am thankful that today I was reminded so many times the ways that I have been blessed.
I am thankful that today I was able to see my God in ways that I've never seen before.
Today, as every day, I am thankful.
Here's to hoping that today you gave thanks and to hoping that, even as the day draws to an end, we remember that everyday is a day to give thanks.

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, People may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight.
The good you do today people will often be forgetten tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

*I went to the Willie Nelson concert in Spartanburg last week. Now, I am not a fan of Willie but I must admit he puts on a pretty good show. He played for almost 2 hours straight without ever stopping. That's pretty good for an old man! I must also note, that it was worth every dime of the ticket price to sit and watch the people. The guy in the row in front of us was the best! He made for a very comical night! My experience there could actually be a blog post in itself!
*I have been getting ready for a craft show that is tomorrow. Every time I do one of these I swear that I will never do another one. Low and behold, I have one tomorrow. Since I am the procrastinator that I am, these shows can make for some stressful nights for me!
*I found out that we didn't get rid of all the fire ants in our yard. Guess how I found that out???
*I have been trying to get stuff together to meet with my advisor at Converse so that I can hopefully start on my Masters sometime soon. When you have been out of school this long it is really hard to stomach the idea of going back.
*A friend of my brother's was ordained as a minister this past Sunday night. I didn't get to attend but just hearing my mom talk about it brought tears to my eyes. I often used to consider Nate, Jonathan and Stephen my 3 other brothers. Although I don't see Nate often, and haven't seen him in many years, I am proud to say that I know him. He is an incredible guy with a great passion for the Lord. He has a wonderful family and his wife's blog makes me laugh!
Well, I warned you that these aren't anywhere near the most interesting things that you will read today. But that's my life sometimes, not always interesting but always blessed!

"Sometimes I’d like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice in the world when He could do something about it......
But I’m afraid God might ask me the same question."
*I've seen this quote and several blogs lately and thought I would pass it along.

And now how it looks after some chocolate brown paint and a new brown shade: (The lamp really is straight the photographer just wasn't holding the camera straight!)
It just may be the best $5.00 I've ever spent!

I have finally come to terms with the fact that I can no longer be an early bird and a night owl. Since I have to be at school on time, looks like the owl is out of the picture!

OOh - I did find out that I have been accepted into the MAT (Master's of Art in Teaching) program at Converse College! I am so excited and hope to get started back to school next semester. (For those that don't know, the MAT program is designed for those who have an undergrad degree in something other than education but who wish to go back and get their masters degree to teach.)

As a self proclaimed procrastinator (almost 10 weeks to be exact!), I have been crafting away these past few days. Several small bags are almost completed and I have made several new pairs of earrings that are now listed in my etsy shop. These are just a few of my favorites that I listed:

My name is Anna and I love anything crafty! I am wife to a wonderfully patient man and work full time in the school system as a Recreational Therapist with Emotional Disturbed children. I love it and love the time that I have to do things I enjoy. I hope this blog will be a little insight into my simple little life, a simple little life that I absolutely adore! From time to time I hope to post things that I have made and things that I have listed for sale on Etsy! (If you haven't visited Etsy you must do so - an amazing site full of handmade items!) There's a little link to the left that will take you straight to my Etsy shop.
Thanks for stopping by!
