Good morning friends, and a happy labor day to you! It’s 60 degrees and raining here in Nashville, which is actually quite lovely. I’m a fan of the break in the heat. However, I’m sure the weather is just playing with us. It’ll be back in the 80s before we know it.
Yesterday was such a good day. First, and perhaps most importantly, we spotted an albino squirrel on our way home from church. My sister in law had mentioned the existence of said squirrel a few months back, but I figured albino squirrels were mythical creatures. It’s just too weird, right? Well, I was wrong. This squirrel was literally completely white. Quite striking, and a bit startling. Really cool.
After the squirrel sighting, we made our way to a photo shoot out in Franklin. The rain was coming down in sheets on our way there, and we both figured the shoot would be canceled. But it seems that we do some of our best work in inclement weather. The shoot was great. We had the grounds of Dark Horse Studio to play with. I’m so excited to share some of the photos with you. And the photographers will probably be our new best friends very shortly. I love it when that happens.
Last night a couple of our friends came over for curry. We had homemade chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream and brownies for dessert. I’m really pleased with my ice cream maker. I’ve made vanilla, chocolate, vanilla frozen yogurt, and chocolate chip cookie dough so far, and they’ve all been delicious. For the cookie dough I literally added cinnamon to a vanilla base, whipped up half a batch of cookie dough, and mixed it all together. Well, not all of the cookie dough. But having a little extra for some warm cookies was an added bonus.
Food, photos, and squirrels. And friends of course.
Tomorrow we roll out bright and early and make our way to Asbury University. In addition to playing a show and leading worship at chapel, we’ll be teaching a couple songwriting classes. Teaching a class seems like such a grown up thing to do. Last night I looked at Tyler and said, “Promise me we’ll never grow up.” He agreed.
Hope to see some of you at Asbury and in NC and TN this week! Come say hey!
