After we moved him in, we drove to New Orleans. It wasn't exactly what I expected, but I really like it nonetheless. (But...it doesn't hold a candle to San Francisco. Sorry.) The food was yummy, the french/spanish influenced architecture was beautiful and the city just has a very distinct spirit.
I just want to add this: I'm thankful that my daddy still has a job. There are so many people in this economy struggling and here I am taking trips to Asheville AND New Orleans during Christmas break. Blessed to say the least.
Oh. One tiny little detail:
WE'RE NATIONAL CHAMPIONS!!!!!!
This is long because I won't be here from Thursday-Tuesday. And tomorrow...well I have to pack and do homework and things of that sort.
Here's one of the many, MANY reasons to love Ben Rector:
He can write such honest songs. I say honest because you can tell this man is a Christian and that he has rock-solid morals. He is giving advice to his nephew...and I think this is some amazing advice.
I'm the baby of the family (my family, and then the baby of all of my cousin's on my dad's side), so I've never really had someone to just put under my wing. During singing school, when I'm a counselor, I get a little taste of that. I try to serve that person and help them with whatever they need. And I can't wait to have nieces and nephews that I can say exactly what Ben Rector is saying to HIS nephew.
Happy Week :)
