I finally pushed myself to submit to accepting this wonderful violin from Natalie Barlow on Friday. If this makes sense, I'm a really bad gift reciever! It's hard for me to accept things from people without rightfully paying for it myself. The Barlows are certainly training me to submit!! THANK YOU NATALIE!!!
On Saturday, I went to Venetian Night and it was a blast! We didn't have the best view of the boats but the firework show afterward definitely made up for it! Afterward, we just hung out in Millenium Park playing soccer and throwing the frisbee around. Oh, how I love summer... :)
Sunday we had a black-out for two hours!! But I'm so thankful for it. It really pushed my family and I to just be together instead of sitting in front of the computer or TV. My sis, dad and I pulled out our guitars, opened the piano and sang while my brother messed around on the violin. It was quality, what can I say? ;)
And if you've read Sarah Barlow's blog today you've seen this picture from our trip downtown. What a relaxing, beautiful day! The only sad part was leaving behind my 17" MacBook Pro at the Mac Store. :'( One day it will be mine!!
