Project 12 // February


*Project 12: A photo on the first day of every month*

As you probably know, I've been out of town on a business trip to Utah since Tuesday. This is the view from the sky as we flew out on Sunday. Amazing, right? I'm looking forward to sharing some pictures and stories from my trip with you! For now, let's just say it was a very busy and tiring week, and I'm happy to be home.

Jordan and I had a Valentine's date to Target to buy cards for each other. You can read more about it and other funny Jordmanda things here

We also went to a Thunder basketball game. We have gone to one every year since they came to town and always have a lot of fun!

Notable Events
This wasn't that big of a deal, but I did play a soloish type of thing at church one Sunday. It was during the choir solo, and I got really nervous about it and practiced all week. But it went really well, and as far as I can tell I didn't royally mess up.

p.s. If you're interested, you can read this post, where I talk more about playing the violin.

I know a few other awesome blogger friends are doing Project 12 this year (yay!) and so I'll be adding a linkup to my Project 12 posts. This is the lowest of low key linkups. There's not a button or any rules. Just link up if you wrote a Project 12 post!


  1. i didn't know you play violin! that is so cool!!!

  2. I didn't know you played violin! That's cool you had a solo!

  3. Ooohhh! I didn't know you play violin! How cool is that?! I'm a piano player, but always wish I could learn violin! Maybe one day I'll sign up for some lessons.

  4. So cool that you know how to play the violin. I played the flute for like a year and most likely couldn't play it now. Did you like the book?

    1. I enjoyed it a lot, actually, and I think you might too. It's very interesting. Unlike anything I've read before.

  5. That picture of the mountains and clouds is the most beautiful thing I have seen all day

  6. Love the Valentine's Date...perfect :) I didn't realize you played awesome! I wish I had stuck with piano when I was a kid because I would love to have the ability to play has be such a wonderful stress relief. Well...maybe not in this particular case since it involved a performance, but you know what I mean :)

  7. That is SO neat you can play the violin!!! I think it's such a pretty instrument! :)

  8. that sky picture is so cool!! and I don't think I knew you played the violin! that's awesome!

  9. That picture of the mountains is seriously SO awesome. I know you know that, I just thought I would make you extra confident in it! :)

  10. I'm glad your solo went well. I always think it is nerve wracking to play a solo in church.

    I also hope you get rested from your trip. Traveling and working at the same time can be tiring. I hope you got to do some fun things too though throughout your trip.

  11. That view is STUNNING. Straight out of a Lord of the Rings movie.
    I didn't know you played the violin either! How cool is that?

    Looking forward to hear about your trip.

  12. Go you!! I get butterflies in my stomach just thinking about a solo. I'm so glad it went well.

  13. Team #Jordmanda, love it! I had no idea either that you play the violin, how cool! Playing in front of an audience is nerve-wrecking, I'm glad it went well!
    That picture is absolutely gorgeous, can't wait to see more.

  14. Well aren't you just a woman of many talents! I had no idea you played the violin!

  15. I was so not on the internet in February, so I loved hearing about y'all's Valentine's date. Brilliant. I'm all about efficiency, and choosing cards and then not buying them, that's efficient. This year, Angel made me a homemade card at the youth group party where I had everyone make cards and cookies to give away. Then he made me a cookie, but i'd already made myself too many cookies to eat it, so he ate it. I was busy facilitating...and i didn't make him anything. It was perfect.

  16. That sky shot is amazing! So beautiful! And hooray for your solo going so well! :)
