Magic fairy dust, anyone?

The holidays are so unbelievably magical.

Whoa, Christmas, hold up. I’m not talking about you… I’m still reminiscing about Thanksgiving, bro.

For the first time ever, I was in Disneyland over the holiday season.  Do you know what that means?!! Main street decked from head to toe in lights and wreathes and swags of pine.  The characters sported Christmas sweaters and candy canes (although the thermometer was still pushing 75 degrees, yikes), and the speakers lining the park lofted Christmas carols throughout the entire day.

Oh November

I’ve gotten lost. I think it started sometime a little before Thanksgiving. I feel strange saying that a lot’s going on at the moment, (because when is that not true for anybody?) but it’s the only way I can honestly express how I’ve been seeing life.

Hello to all of the loyal Yote fans from Sioux City, Iowa!

We left Saturday morning with anticipation and excitement for a 20-hour bus ride that would take us to the place we’ve worked all year to reach.  As our journey ended and we drove off of the freeway, seeing the Tyson Event Center in the distance, we had the confidence that good things would happen to us this week.
