It Happened...

I'm 30! I had a splendid time celebrating my birthday too. My throat was still sore for my birthday yesterday, but I barely noticed I was having such a good time.
This is what 30 looks like! Mister caught this pic after he threw a self made hat on me and  I was fully clothed...thank goodness for that!

We walked to church without a coat for the first time! The service was lovely and there was a fantastic sermon. We had a great discussion in our Sunday school class on what could have been a very awkward subject (see 1 Peter 3). Then we headed to HuHot with my parents and grandma followed by a little playtime at the park for Mister.

Once we got home, the 3 of us relaxed in bed while Adam read some of The Hobbit. We went on a long walk to Dairy Cream for ice cream, since there was no cake. We decided to skip supper and have a movie and popcorn. We watched Cinderella on our movie screen and my boys got me my favorite tiny popcorn and white cheddar popcorn seasoning.

The weather was perfect yesterday and I am looking forward to what my 30s have to offer. Looking back on my 20s I really don't know what the big hype is all about. I went to college, struggled to stay afloat financially, and had one disappointment after another in the first half of my 20s. In the second half I had rough toddler years and spent all my time and money trying to dig my way out of debt. Not that it was all bad mind you, but I wouldn't want to do my 20s again.

The 30s hold so much promise! Our debt will be gone this year (except the house) and we have many options for our future. Yeah...I think turning 30 is going to be okay after all. And if not, There's always the 40s to look forward to!

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.


Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
