A Month of Earrings… (Day 13)

Yet another gift, these earrings came from my sister, Hannah. She bought them in Colorado (like the blue feather earrings), and sent them all the way to Tanzania with a sweet note about how she thought I needed a pair of “hippie earrings.” And so these are just that, my “hippie earrings!” They’re bright, colorful,…

A Month of Earrings… (Day 12)

Another pair of bicycle earrings!!! These are made from repurposed bicycle chain links, and are just so much fun to wear! If I remember correctly, they were handmade in Colorado, though I purchased them online. I chose them for today to match my TwinSix cycling t-shirt… and the fact that I rode my bicycle to…

A Month of Earrings… (Day 11)

Another tiny (for me!) pair of earrings, these come from Papua New Guinea. I bought several pairs of earrings while I was there in 2010 for Interface, but the grey, black, and white color scheme on this pair, makes them one of my favorite pairs of small earrings. Classy and unique.  

A Month of Earrings… (Day 10)

These earrings (and tomorrow’s, which I’ve already selected) are among my smallest earrings. This pair was made for me by a friend, Erica, who has actually made me several pairs of beautiful earrings!

Ponderings…

I’ve been exhausted the past few weeks, despite going to bed early and getting up later than usual. Apparently, my ability to sleep from 2-5 and go all Energizer Bunny for the other 21 hours of the day is failing. Maybe its the end of the school year. Maybe I’m just getting old. =D Anyways,…

A Month of Earrings… (Day 9)

These were one of my first pairs of earrings. They were a gift from my roommate and fellow earring enthusiast my first year at the Miracle Mountain Ranch School of Discipleship. Over spring break, she went on a missions trip to Venezuela with her family, and returned with these. So, even though I’ve never been…

A Month of Earrings… (Day 8)

These little butterfly earrings were given to me almost seven years ago, just after I gave a “sermon on the mount” with one of my newly adopted off-track thoroughbred mares. In March of 2009, I adopted two off-track thoroughbreds from a farm in Maryland. They were delivered to Pennsylvania, where I was attending the Miracle…

A Month of Earrings… (Day 7)

More neon! These were also a Wal-Mart purchase, and are just fun. No story. Just fun. I chose to wear them today because they matched my neon pink skirt and neon yellow nails…sometimes you just have to pick the earrings to match the clothing, instead of the other way around. 😉

A Month of Earrings… (Day 6)

I have this thing for neon. This is just one of about six pairs of earrings that express my love of neon. I painted my nails neon yellow this morning, so I figured these would be the perfect match. And besides, I’m helping out with a youth group program this afternoon–and what high schooler doesn’t…

A Month of Earrings… (Day 5)

This earring used to be a pair of earrings. Until I was riding my bicycle home from school one day and lost it somewhere along the way. It was a sad day, but hasn’t stopped me from wearing the maverick as just that, a maverick. Instead of a feather in each ear, I wear double…

Spiritual Whitespace:

Bonnie Gray’s new book, Finding Spiritual Whitespace, is the story of finding space to breathe, feed your soul, and dream dreams. This is a lesson I’ve been learning slowly over this year. Living alone for the first time ever has been hard. It has also been nice. I have more quiet, alone time than I’ve ever had…

A Month of Earrings… (Day 4)

The significance of this pair of earrings is pretty self-explanatory. Indianapolis Colts, anyone? These earrings are a staple on Sunday nights from August through January, as I support the Colts…even all the way from Tanzania. I have my parents to thank for this particular pair–they were a Christmas gift several years ago.
