pearls and grace

And the winner is: Diane4529!

Please email me Diane and I’ll email you the confirmation of the paid ticket.   Let me know if something prevents you from coming so we make good use of the ticket!  Congratulations Diane!


Before you fill up that brand spanking new 2012 calendar, I think you should consider a little road trip with me to Nashville on March 10.

My darling sweet-as-sugar friend Sibi has announced Pearl Event II—The Double Strand, a gathering of women for a day to connect through stories and share through vulnerability and encourage our fellow sisters in our various vocations as women.

My knees are already knocking.  I’m supposed to share my story.    Whilst standing upright and speaking into a microphone.  And ideally without disintegrating into a puddle of tears.

I said yes right away and then got chest pains and hyperventilated.   Then I ate some fudge and felt better.

And then I did hitch kicks because PAIGE IS GONNA BE THERE TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

{I don’t know if I can wait until March.}

So I really hope you’ll join us.   We want to meet you and love on you and make sure you know what a pearl of great price you are to our Father!

Sibi’s friends Sarah and Jane will be there as well sharing their stories.  I have lots of new friends to make!

And then Sibi herself will tell her tender story of struggle and faith.

{{Side story:   I met Sibi at Blissdom 2 years ago and I think she  may very well be an angel in disguise.  You’ve never met a  more  sweet or gracious southern belle.  Her description of meeting me cracked me up—she said I was a cross between Paula Deen and Beth Moore, carrying a plate of cupcakes (true story) and dressed like a scrapbook page with heavily applied eye liner (true that as well) }}

Here’s the nitty gritty:

Saturday, March 10, 2012

9:00 ~ 4:00

The Opryland Hotel

Magnolia Ballroom

Nashville, Tennessee

You may purchase a ticket for $25 here. There is limited space so don’t hem and haw around like I’m want to do.

I’ll be getting to Nashville on Friday so we can eat lunch together and shop at Anthropologie and get our smoky eyes done at the MAC counter for free.

I’m so excited to meet you in real life that I’m buying a ticket myself and giving it away to you!

Just leave a comment and I’ll pick a winner at exactly 12:00am on January 1st 2012.

Who am I kidding.  It’s very likely I’ll be asleep but I’ll pick a winner soon, how’s that?

Pencil in the Pearl Girls.
