Emmanuel

basically where i spent my childhood.

When asked as a kid what my favorite Christmas song was, I would always respond with "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel." I obviously didn't understand the full gravity of the lyrics, but I loved the melody. Something about it felt cold and haunting to me. Christmas for most people is hot chocolate and warm fires. For me, it's bare branches and drifting snowflakes. Though the tune of "Emmanuel" is melancholy, its lyrics are full of hope for the coming Messiah. The Israelites waited for His first advent, I am waiting patiently for His second.

family and fences and trains

Photobucket 

I got to photograph my sister's ridiculously good looking family this past saturday. Though it may look like frigid mid-winter in these photos, it was probably 70 degrees outside. The weather here in Nashville is so confused right now. It's currently pouring rain outside.

merry and bright

Finally starting to get a bit of Christmas cheer put up in my room! I obviously haven't been blessed with the superior Christmas decorating skills the rest of my family has. This is probably all the snow I'll see this year. Photobucket Photobucket 

 OH HEY. This is just a quick note to say I'm still alive, and have some super fun things coming here to this dusty little blog once finals are over. Only a week and a half, and I'll be half-done with my Junior year of undergrad. Can I get an amen? Yeah yeah!

Anyway. I've been swamped with papers and performances and all that jazz. Life is full right now, but it's quite nice. I'm looking forward to Christmas break. Road trips to Missouri, Passion Conference, lots of book reading and movie watching, a new year, The Hobbit, seeing Relient K and House of Heroes, and another year older. (twenty-one will be upon me in less than a month. I can hardly believe how young I am.) 

Speaking of books, I'm working on a list of books to read over break. There are so many to choose from. I'm beside myself with glee! 

xo,
Katy
