Out of the Black Night...

More like out of the black hole. I kind of got sucked into the craziness of everything going on around me, and lost track of things that existed outside of my schedule. Like this blog for instance. Here are a few thing worth mentioning about today (and the days near it, which I haven't been covering lately).

The Larkstone Legacy
You are officially the first to see the working title of the story I am currently trying to write. I can't give you a synopsis yet, because I haven't quite worked out the plot, but I will tell you that it's about a 17-year-old girl (who happens to be a fairy) named Maliya and what happens to her world when a human stumbles into their forest kingdom. Yes, the human is a boy.

In Memoriam: James McQuary January 23, 1933 - December 15, 2006

Today marks the 2nd anniversary of my maternal grandpa's passing. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandpa, friend, brother, and man of God. I still miss him.

To end on a happier note:
My friend Marisa got married on Saturday! It was so beautiful - Josh, Marisa's husband, is a great guy and I know that they will be so happy together. The wedding was so nice: before the ceremony started, we got to watch the video that Josh's brother Matt made of Josh's surprise proposal this summer when Marisa and our friend Heather were in Costa Rica for school. It was so funny to see how nervous and excited he was, and to be a little part of their story.

I am changing my layout. It may be different by the time you see it, but this one (brown) is too serious and boring. Time for something a little more fun. :)
