fun with flags

A fun little project for Saturday… I’ve seen lots of people making garlands with fabric flags in magazines and on blogs, etc. A friend made a strand with paper and I told her I planned on copying her idea.

For my 23rd birthday, two of my friends from Candler chipped in on a Groupon for me for 1 month of unlimited yoga classes at a studio here in Decatur. Best gift ever! Let me tell you how hard it has been to have this since April and not use it!

I was back in Atlanta for a week before leaving to go be a Bible Study Leader on the PASSPORTkids! East Team in Lynchburg, VA.

I was there for nearly a week, then flew back to Atlanta. That was June 25. I went home for the July 4th holiday and stayed for 4 days in KY. I got to meet baby Ruby!
