High Five for Friday

Happy Friday, everyone!  I don't think I could possibly welcome this weekend with any more enthusiasm - anybody else in this boat with me?  Anyway, it's here!  So here are some of my favorite Instagram photos from this last couple of weeks.

National Grilled Cheese Day.  Amen.  I didn't know this even existed!  But considering I celebrate this holiday more days than not, I was happy to join in the festivities.  What a happy little lunch it was :)

As I have mentioned, Alex has moved to ATL for grad school.  The plus side of being long distance, is writing letters.  The plus side of writing letters is getting to use my neutral stationary and washi tape.  Oh, and Pixar stamps.

The Deathly Hallows were written on the chalkboards in my Music Bibliography class.  Does that mean I kinda go to Hogwarts?

 The first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season.  Sweet goodness, these things are delicious.

449 all decked out for football season.  #GBO #VFL #RockyTop

I hope everyone enjoys your weekend as much as I plan to!  Happy Friday and Go Vols!

Back in Action

As you can tell, I have taken a little break from the blogging world.  But I'm baaaaaaaack.  So here is a brief update on all things Jenny.

A.  I have started my Master's Degree at the University of Tennessee in Choral Conducting.  It is hard work, but I basically love it.  Rocky Top, you'll always be...

B.  I have an awesome new apartment. Seriously.  Downtown is too cool for school.  Stay tuned for posts about my new neighborhood!

C.  Alex moved to Atlanta and is getting his Master's there.  Many, many letters and Skype dates are in our future.

D.  Still working at Church Street UMC with the unbelievable youth program.  Look at these faces - what's not to love?

E.  I am now an outreach teacher with Joy of Music School which provides free music lessons to at risk kids in the Knoxville area.  It is such an incredible opportunity - I mean, how cool is it to bring music ed to kids who might not get to experience it?

The moral of the story is: life is good.  More to come. :)

Love, love, love,
