3 things about this picture.

1. This awesome jacket was purchased at Saver's for 6.99.  It is reversible, (I look kind of like a sea-faring captain when it's turned to the yellow side, and like an Alaskan Native woman when it's turned to the flowered side).  It is also quilted, cozy, has a hood, has a button strap around the back, looks a little asian, has gotten me compliments at church and in The Sunflower Market, simultaneously matches and doesn't match with everything.

2.  The flower headband that is partly being blocked by the paper was made by my cutest and craftiest sister-in-law, Nicole.  She is making them in all different colors and unique style to sell very soon.  I will vouch for it right now;  after wearing it all day I can say that I have honestly not taken it off and adjusted it once, it's staying right in place.  Despite it being a medium sized flower atop my head, I still feel classy, elegant and fashionable.

3.  This letter came in the mail today, informing me that I was accepted to BYU's Creative Writing Master's Program.  This is exciting to me.  I'm sure grateful that BYU was not too hasty to usher me out it's doors just yet.  There are so many great students and professors that I am blessed to be able to work with.

Congratulations!!!! I am so excited for you! (And a wee bit jealous.) What's your emphasis going to be--are you going the poet route?
