Temple night

Tonight was the Arlington Ward youth night at the Temple.  Four 12 year old boys were there for the first time.  I wish I could bottle their excitement, testimonies, and awesomeness.  We have the best youth!  and we have a critical mass!!

Gather Here

I met a friend at Gather Here, a really cool fabric store in Cambridge, and then we had lunch at Whole Foods.  Mine was a $12 lunch.  Oy. 

I love making things.  And I can't sew things without fabric. 

It's still Fall

Bella's birthday

Bella moved here from Brazil a few weeks ago and her 16th birthday is this week.  We celebrated today in Young Women with pumpkin squares (made by me) and singing "Happy Birthday" to her.  We are all happy to have another Laurel!

Missionary mail

My friend heard about a missionary who gets no letter and asked if I would write to him.  Of course I said yes.  Today I mailed him these chocolate chip cookies.  #thatswhatnanwoulddo #iammormon #madeatmidnight #bakesomeonehappy

For someone (me) who is all about letter writing and phone calls and talking in person, this exchange is kind of funny.  #myfriendsometimeswalkstothesubwaywithme

No sisters; no hand-me-downs

My friend Kristen (aka "Sister") always shares her hand-me-downs with me.  That orange Boden sweater?  Gah!  It matches my chair and my hair.  I might wear it every day.  Thanks, Kristen!  Your the best.  :)

The Lehnardts

We are finally friends IRL!  #lehnardtsinboston

The best FHE

Burdick's with the Lehnardts, Mary and Teddy.  The people were a better treat than the hot chocolate and that's saying something.  #lehnardtsinboston

TBT: The First Five (bishops of the Arlington Ward)

I took this photo in October, 2002 at the Boston Stake Center.  L->R: Bob Chandler, Kip Thompson, Lee LaPierre, Travis Waller, Jim Johnston.  Kip was visiting from Texas that Sunday and when I saw him before Stake Conference I quickly realized that all Five Guys were there so I grabbed my camera, wrangled them and took some photos.  #arlingtonwardfriendsareforever #nofilterneeded #afavoritephoto #LDSleaders

Bad lighting/Good lunch

Lobster roll from the Trevett Country Store.

Boothbay view

The view from my friend's house that she grew up in.  Sigh.  Maine.  #epweekendinmaine

Fall foliage

Before I moved to New England I thought you had to "go somewhere" to see beautiful leaves.  But as I tell people, the leaves on your own street are beautiful.  #epweekendinmaine
