CAPES [something empowering] Not only were we designed to work, but it’s a God-given mandate (#amreading “Every Good Endeavor,” by Tim Keller).
COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] Now I get it, Alicia Keys. #NYC is a magical place. I ran in Central Park every day, ate late-night dinners, attended an amazing “Humanizing Work” conference at Redeemer Presbyterian Church, and reveled in the buzz and energy of the city. Can’t wait to return.
THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] I recently moved back in with my parents while my condo undergoes some pre-wedding home repairs. This means I get to participate in “Oma Day” – where my mom watches my nephews twice a week. Yesterday, upon hearing the arrival of my nephews, I climbed the stairs still in my pajamas, Ugg-footed, and contacts out/wide-rimmed glasses on. My youngest nephew took one look at me and said: “Auntie Annie, you’re scary.” He should be commended for honesty. And put in time out for hurting my feelings.
