Had you been my pal today….

Had you been my pal today we would have woken up bright and early at 9. After going back to sleep we would have really been out of bed at 10 because Aaron made us strawberry & (surprise) blackberry aebleskivers for breakfast, and we could smell them!

Happiest girl in the world!

I really must be the happiest girl in the world. It has everything to do with my job.

I’ve been without a job for about a year so I have pretty low expectations when it comes to employment. I have to say though that this job exceeds all my expectations.

Mansfield Park

After just missing them (LDS Employment Services) yesterday it took a surprising amount of time for me to convince myself to go back there. I was hounded by Aaron to go and I was certain it was a waste of time for reasons I couldn’t articulate.
