Another week in the books. It was a crazy one for me again – I essentially took on another part time job as the transitional youth director for my church. I’m a little overwhelmed with the responsibility, but mostly excited for the year and getting to know the kids better. I’ve gone to the same church since I was born and grew up going to Sunday school/youth group, so I’m honored to be given the opportunity to give back to a program that gave so much to me. If you have any tips for getting middle and high schoolers to like you… please send my way 😉
Otherwise, I had some fun activities this week. I attended a brush lettering class with Level Up Lexington. Level Up offers pop up classes taught by experts on subjects ranging from cookie decorating to mixology to how to monetize your blog. They just came to Lexington and I’m excited to see what other classes they’ll offer!
I also had a huge work event; BHG catered dinner for 3500 for Southland Christian’s Jesus Prom, a prom for people with special needs and disabilities. It is a huge undertaking, but so impressive to see how thousands of volunteers come together to make such a special night. I was humbled to serve alongside awesome coworkers.
Of course did a little brunching – County Club and checked out the new Bear & the Butcher. Both yum!
