oh the fair
what a weekend. chock full of new things. new people and experiences with each blink it seemed. it was a joy.
as always, things do not go exactly how i think they will. i really hadn't understood just how small a 4 foot table could be. pretty small friends. pretty small.
but i got to meet so many wonderful people. and my visitors were so kind to stop by and compliment. i was proud of my work all splayed out and my table ended up being a safe haven in the middle of the crowds.
i am grateful that He is faithful. i was not overly anxious or distraught. He gave me peace and calm as i approached this whole new world. He reminded me of His presence and the people He so frequently loves me through. it was such a fun weekend.
i cannot tell you how exhausted i was by the end. so tired. my parents and sister were here to help (i don't know what i would have done without them). and we ended Saturday by roasting marshmellows in the tiny grill and making smores. perfect.
something samuel's been wanting to do for such a long time. it was so fun to see him delight in the process.
and erica was here. yay! she sat with me for the latter half of saturday which was so nice. what a goofy pair we sometimes make. she is lovely and was my promoter behind the table.
we ended the weekend with breakfast at Cullen's. i missed my family this weekend and it was so nice to revel in all they are for a whole day. yum.
so i'm busy now putting things on my etsy shop. i will get there. one at a time.
what a weekend. thanks for following, friends. and listening to my days. He is growing and changing me. some days it feels a little hopeless- i can't change. but He again proved Himself faithful this weekend. He calmed my spirit. gave me peace in the midst of my fear. He is faithful. even when i forget.
