catching the sillies.

I don't know what's come over me, except that it feels like a slight case of "the sillies."

Yesterday Duke and I had planned to go to the temple in Portland for our evening date and I was having some trouble waiting. That's when I started noticing the symptoms: dress-up cravings, extreme craft thoughts, disruption in normal behavior infecting those I call on the phone.

So we were almost late to the temple, but I'm so glad we went. I am always glad when we go, even if I'm there with paint all over my arms and hands and ridiculous costume makeup. It was worth the chaos (to me, but you'll have to ask my mom for a more sensible opinion).

Here's a sneak-peek of the silliness that came over us yesterday. More to come on Monday, the official posting date for the SHEnanigans group.

One of the loveliest parts of our temple visit was meeting a blog-reader, right there in that beautiful place. I'm so glad that Julie introduced herself, partially because the sisterhood I feel here online has become somehow more real to me, and also so that I have a new, lovely blog friend to follow myself!

All of yesterday's adventure inspired me to live a little more. To be a person I would want to be friends with. To bring my day-dreams to life in my actions. Huzzah!

And if you are a Harry Potter fanatic like I am, you will need to watch this video at some point.

There are no squibs, people.

PS- thank you mom and dad for EVERYTHING you always do to help me in my crazy schemes. (aka last minute babysitting, companionship and input in thrift-store costume shopping, taping and spray painting stuff, scrounging for accessories, contributing financially to ridiculous endeavors, humoring me, you know-the regular.)
