Where does my time/life go?

There are some things that are beautiful in life. Like birthdays, and vacations, and heavy cream, and bourbon, and fondue, and good books, and sleep, and pumpkin patches, and Scott and Kimberly Hahn. These are the things that my life has been made up of in the past few weeks. Oh, and work. A not so beautiful thing. Unless, of course, you are a chastity educator, which means that your days are filled with sunshine, jolly ranchers, cute 6th graders who giggle over the “s” word, and not-so-cute 17 year old boys who ask you to explain “why girls get cramps on their period.” Oh yes.

So, where have I been the past few weeks? Let me show you. So the jealousy can start.  jk.

This would be Maker’s Mark distillery. Can I get a jaw-drop? Imagine a beautiful Saturday morning, in sunny 70-degree weather, in the backroads wilderness of Kentucky with some fabulous bourbon….and that would pretty much be the story of one of my October weekends. Vacations with great friends are a fantastic thing in life, and well worth doing – often.

You know what else is worth doing? Making this fabulous corn chowder.

And even more? Barn dances, porches,  sleeping in, beautiful Kentucky riverside sunsets, blackberry wine, pumpkin scones, and the poetic writing of John Paul II. Another fabulous October weekend.

And, to put it all together, add in another out-of-town weekend at a wonderful conference with some more beautiful friends and a boatload of fantastic, inspiring, Catholic speakers. Marvelous.

For He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity into the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what He has done from beginning to end. ” – Ecclesiastes 3:11
