Best Day of My Life.


My paper (that I've spent the last three years of my life working on) was nominated for best paper at the first academic conference I've ever attended.

I bought myself a spinning wheel.

And... (drumroll, please)

I got engaged.

Today was the best day ever. So happy and content.

Well, hello there.

I'm writing to you tonight from the big city, where I've been the past couple days- attending my first regional history conference.

I trimmed my 90 page thesis into 12 pages, and then cut it down to 10 to make it into a 20 minute presentation, which I presented today. It was totally awesome.

Tomorrow, after the conference... I am going to look at spinning wheels. On a scale from one to amazing, my life pretty much rocks right now. Except... that I can't bring Webster to the hotel for the conference. I miss that cat!

Also, I've been doing tons of knitting lately!

Baby surprise jackets are amazing! My honey's brother is expecting a baby, or rather- his wife is expecting a baby, so I made them a BSJ. so cool! It's missing seams and buttons yet, but the knitting is done!

This quarter is going to be especially crazy at school, but it's so much fun, and I love it. I'm finally doing history that I want to do rather than history that is available to study, and it is so much more enjoyable!

Happy Spring everyone!
