High Five for Friday (10.23.20)

After two weeks of work-related travel, Tom finally comes home this weekend!

Somewhere in the midwest, on his drive through.

I voted. It took 47 minutes from the time I joined the line until I walked out the backdoor of the building, so if you add in the four-minute drive to the polling place and the four-minute drive home, I accomplished this "feat" in under an hour. 

As I walked back to my car, I felt accomplished and proud and ever so slightly hopeful. Anxiety and fear still swirled around inside of me, deep in the pit of my stomach, but I tried as hard as I could to - at least for a few moments - allow space for only my positive emotions to flourish. 

VOTE, friends! 


That's my Lily, by the way. These are from her dance company photo shoot.

As a member of the Ballet Brazos Publicity Committee (I think my official title is Vice Chair, but I prefer "Assistant to the Regional Manager"), I've spent the last few weeks working toward an important upcoming event. Taking place next Tuesday, October 27th, Brazos Valley Gives is a community-wide day of giving built around strengthening nonprofits, empowering donors, and building community. We're proud to be a part of this second annual fundraiser, and we'd like to invite you to visit to learn more about the event, the many participating organizations, and the efforts of Ballet Brazos to instruct, educate, and enrich the lives of young people through the art of dance to share quality classical ballet performances with audiences of all ages.

These delightful little babes have been so fun to play with and love on...especially after they stopped pooping all over my house. 😉

Hallie's American Girl doll was on the top
bunk so they had to share the bottom bunk.

This girl can't say no to a tummy rub.

That paw up by her right ear? That's her BACK paw.
She could not love having her tummy rubbed more.

Dorothy, on the other hand, loves science.


...and participating. She's pretty
solid on the Periodic Table now.

A bonus high five - happy birthday, Nuria!

And a bonus bonus high five for Jenn's back porch, without which these socially distant (excep for a photo) birthday gatherings would be possible...

Have a great weekend, friends!
