And Life Goes On

Another week (plus) has gone by since we officially moved to Texas. A LOT has happened in the last couple of weeks! I’m excited to share that we have continued some fun play dates with new friends and the house hunt is still in effect. Our house closes on the 29th (Lord willing- prayers appreciated) and we are scheduled to head back to Cali in a week to our horribly-ugly-no-good fixer-upper (sniff) to pack-up.

But let’s not talk about that right now.

The best part of last week was the MOST amazing time I had surrounded by my Noonday Sisters at the annual Noonday SHINE conference. I am bursting with things to share but I will hold-back because I know you have a life and I don’t need to divulge every single detail (but I really really want to!!!). Taking a breath. Now, here is my/our week in pictures with SUPER minimal explanation (you’re welcome).

Me and my roomie Kerry acting like total spazes because we just saw Jessica Honegger (founder of Noonday Collection) AND Jalia & Daniel (partner artisans in Uganda as seen in the Our Story video) IRL!!!!

Together we are building a flourishing world where Children are Cherished, Women are Empowered, People Have Jobs, and We Are CONNECTED. The new infographic from Noonday. LOVE.

Sneaking a shot of Jalia speaking about her company “African Style” which provides Noonday with gorgeous pieces from Uganda. People are lined-up to work for them because they offer admirable wages and working conditions. A rarity there.

Swag bag! Just a couple of my favorite items from it.

Finally got the gumption to ask for a photo with Jalia and Daniel! I still can't believe I met them. I've shared their story so many times!

I am THRILLED to announce that Noonday now has a Partner Artisan Group in AFGHANISTAN. Do you know how HUGE this is?? Women. Working. In. Afghanistan. Let that sink in.

Gorgeous day of 75 degrees on Canyon Lake (where Caleb’s parents live). I wish I could eat it. It would be delicious.

Worst pic but had to try to capture all of the fun we had at McKenna Children’s Museum in New Braunfels!

Well, that’s all for me for now! Thank you for your continued prayers as we make our way through this difficult transition.
