This morning, Aaron ran his first half marathon and I couldn't be more proud of him! He had an awesome time for his first one - 2:27 - narrowly beating my time last year of 2:42. Obviously we weren't that close! He did great and I am so proud of him for accomplishing his goal. If you know my husband, you know discipline is one of his many wonderful qualities - I need to pick up on that a little more. He's an inspiration to me! Congrats Aaron!

This is him at mile 9 - smiling away and doing great!

Quick life update on what's been going on with me lately...

1. Praying for Corbin. One of my former students, Corbin, had a brain tumor removed on Tuesday, which was also his 12th birthday. He has had the tumor since he was 6 years old, and has always handled the side effects on his body with such grace and maturity. He is one of the most special and delightful kids I have ever taught and I will never forget him. When he was in my class, he was learning Braille on top of keeping up with all of his other work. He is such a smart kid and I am so proud of him. If you want to keep up with his story and know how to specifically pray for his recovery, please check out his blog.

2. I am going to be an aunt to a NEPHEW in June! My brother and his wife Jessica had their big gender reveal party last week, and when they sliced into the cake, there was a stripe of blue frosting. Jess just had an instinct about that and had really felt all along it was a boy. I am SO excited about this and am happy that I can finally start buying presents!
We can't wait to be aunts!

3. Stella and Dot! This is really what I am most excited about...I hosted my first trunk shows this weekend and ended up with great sales! I am loving working for this great company so far - especially with the almost $500 of free jewelry that I just earned. If you are at all interested in getting some really cute, free jewelry, please let me know! Anyone who books a show in March, I am offering a deal where you will receive a FREE pair of the soiree studs...I LOVE these - they go with everything and you can have your choice of hematite or gold studs. S&D has found that more people attend trunk shows when they are booked 7-10 days out, so don't feel like it's too late to plan something for March. I do all the work - all you do is invite your friends and have some snacks out. Let me know if you want to talk about it some more.
Your choice - FREE as a gift from me if you book in March!

Hope everyone has had a great week! Please remember to keep Corbin in your prayers if you get a moment!
