Springtime in My Soul

Sunday, April 18, 2010
Today was my last week teaching Relief Society :(. I actually enjoyed teaching and I love the sisters in the ward. I'm going to miss it. I wanted to look springy and light-hearted for my last week. I consider myself a more serious, all-about-doctrine teacher than a fun-loving, joking teacher. I'm still fun...I think.

Me mid-sentence. Thanks, babe. ...and because it's fun to see me in not-so-attractive pictures.

  53. Hey Elaine!

    Sorry about being MIA, I took an unexpected absence from blogging - just needed a break...

    Anyhow, you look perfect for Spring! And your hair is getting long, wow! Are you leaving for your trip any day now? Or are you moving first? Gosh, it's been so long, I'm all confused, LOL, I'm sorry!

    xo

  57. You nailed the springy and lighthearted. Sounds like you'd be my kind of teacher!! Get to the meat of the matter!

    ReplyDelete
  58. You actually look nice in candid pictures! I don't look too great in them. Believe it or not, I've had quarrels with my husband on posting vs not posting certain candid shots. He just loves them! I am guessing your husband loves your candids, too! (I would agree with him).

    Awesome necklace!

  59. the color combo is gorgeous. I love the touch of shine from the necklace. So spring-y!
