Surrounded By More Than Just Air

For 5 seconds, I want you to stop what you are doing (por favor).

Thank you 

Now, look at what surrounds you. 
Look at where you are standing at this very moment. 

Thank you God!

Back on the education track!

Stories? YES.

Summary notes of Winter Break (in Kansas):
  • If you end up at in south west Kansas, there is a city that smells like meat and factories. True story. 
  • According to my sister (a KU student), when you jaywalk in downtown Lawrence (home of the KU Jayhawks), the term used is jayhawking.
  • Watched "180" Movie
    • Side note: March for Life is today. More than 200,000 people marching for the lives of babies in the womb in DC. 
  • Spend a month with a baby and you will become a pro at changing diapers. 
  • My 3 month old niece can almost say my name. She has the "Ah" part correct, working on the "meee"...
  • Airport stores are pretty silly. In Kansas, they sell yellow brick road candy pieces.
  • Calling all coffee lovers to announce that there is such a thing as coffee tasting, it is called coffee cupping.
  • Made a 1-month marathon training plan. (Because two weeks from not running is long enough to lose muscle). 
  • Realized that "goodbye"s in an airport are heartbreaking. 
  • The rain cloud: Saw some of my friends back home for less than one day due to moving. 
  • The rainbow: Spent 3 weeks getting to know my baby niece. I thank God for babies.

1st day of classes: Breakfast of champions.
GF chocolate pancakes top with mini marshmallows.
I hope everyone has a lovely Monday!
