SMP 2.10.14 {Bullet Points}

SMP = Seven Minute Post

* Happy 17th Birthday to Will! We took him to dinner last night and surprised him by inviting a few of his friends to show up. He was indeed surprised and we were reminded {again} that he's a great kid with great friends. I am so proud of him and grateful that I get to be his mom.
* So ummmmmmm, this young mom with a sweet family came up to John last night at dinner and asked if he was John Blase. She thought she recognized him from his blog and told him she read his poetry all the time. I actually wasn't at the table when that happened but it was funny and sweet at the same time. It's like I'm married to a celebrity or something. Ha ha!

* My mind and heart are literally bursting with all that God did over the weekend at IF. Seriously, I cannot get my mind to to stop processing it all. So much beautiful stuff to unpack in the days ahead.

* I've been gone two back-to-back weekends and I'm one thousand percent sure that my husband is the most gracious man on the planet. He deserves a fabulous Valentine's gift for all that he has stepped up and handled with a generous spirit while I was away.

* Being gone two weekends in a row has been wonderful but hard. I'm super behind a lot of things right now (despite two snow days last week) and I'm starting Monday tired. It's not my favorite way to start a week but it helps that this week is short and next weekend is long and gloriously unplanned.

Here's to a new week!
