The Friday Five

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.

Did I mention on here that I’m leading an Easter choir at my church?!

I’m kind of over the moon about it.  Our little midtown church is overflowing with artists and talented musicians, but all of the singers have never come together to actually do the choir thing in worship before…until now.  Which makes this former choir director really happy!  Seriously, I could not stop smiling last week during rehearsal.  It was just so fun to put some of those old skills back to use.  And much more, to be able to make some beautiful music with good friends and people I love.  Such a gift!

Anyway, warm wishes coming your way for a good weekend ahead.  And without further ado, here’s the Friday Five!

    I feel like you need to include that rainbow pizza photo in every post. I would hate for it to get buried and it makes me happy every time I see it!! I’m sure you can think of a way to segue it in right? ;)

    I love your rainbow recipes, Ali! I think that’s how I first found your blog a few weeks back … via the wonderful rainbow pizza!
    What a great opportunity to lead your choir … all the best with that!
