It’s true, it’s true! I am. For a week. With a humanitarian organization I deeply and wholeheartedly admire called Unbound. And I just wrote out a lovely introductory post to tell you all about it, and the country, and their national food (papusas!), and the things we’re going to be doing, and the incredible ways that Unbound is partnering with people all over the world to challenge poverties in new and innovative ways…

The Friday Five (Memorial Day Recipes Edition)

Happy Memorial Day Weekend, friends!

I hope you have a lovely and relaxing 3-day weekend ahead, hopefully shared with lots of friends and family. I going to be popping down to visit my parents (and see the new house they’re building!) in Wichita for a few days. But otherwise, hopefully keeping the agenda work-free and catching up on some R&R here with friends in Kansas City.

Hey hey, everyone! I hope life finds you well this lovely Friday.

Here I am sitting in Kansas City on a warm spring day writing this post. And there you are – literally all around the world — reading it. And that’s perfectly normal nowadays. I love the (literally) world wide web.

The Friday Five

This week has been one of those perfectly normal weeks that makes me adore life. Nothing extraordinary happened. But lots and lots of really good ordinary-ness happened.

Meals shared with friends every day of the week. Glorious spring thunderstorms. Morning iced coffee. Energizing business brainstorming talks with friends. Nachos. Dog walks on warm evenings. Dancing around the kitchen. Marathon Mad Men watching. Lots of laughing.

TGIF, friends.

Hope that you all have had a lovely week, and that a relaxing weekend lies ahead. I’m looking forward to some friend’s-birthday-celebrating, farmers-marketing, coffee-(friends)-dating, cake-baking, church-enjoying, and sleeping-inning here in my little corner of the world this weekend. OH, and the thing I’m perhaps most excited about — choir-directing.
