My choir director was invited to teach a session at the conference, so of course all of the choir had to go. It was an unbelievable time of learning more about my trade, spending time with my best friends and getting to know new people in the choir! I would say that after this trip I have at least one new friend. I'm so thankful that the opportunity this trip gave us to bond as a group. Sure, we all went our separate ways, but I still got to know people that I didn't know as well before. We ate some damn good food (looking back I should have taken pictures of it...), ran around Savannah trying to make it to sessions and concerts on time, but mostly we laughed and had a great time.
I do regret one thing that is worth speaking about in this blog:
I did not take enough photos of the beautiful city.

Pictured above is Christ Church. That is not my choir performing, but that choir did do a phenomenal job! This is however the space that our session was held in. Isn't it gorgeous? The acoustics were amazing, but not distracting to us. The sound rang, but we could only hear it when we paused to take breaths, or after a song was finished. Every choir that we heard in that church sounded like angels in this space.
It also brought back many memories for me of Freshman year when I performed in this church with the All-College Choir. When I was a senior in high school I was in the All-State Choir, and I thought it was amazing. An experience that I will hold dear for the rest of my life, but as that was a high school choir, All-College just trumps All-State so hard. I regret to this day not buying the CD of our performance that year.

In other crocheting news, I started a hat out of fisherman's wool for my man, but am still working on it. I've also had several ideas for hats using scrap yarn, and started a hat using my Red Heart Magical yarn in Chrystal Ball. If you have a nice Micheal's near you, go pick some up! It's such a joy.
I also went home for a little while, and got some quality kitty time in. She must have missed me a lot, because she never gets in my lap anymore and does not like to be held when you're sitting down. But she was a cuddle bug this weekend! Just look at her! I can't stand it!
Picked up some amazing items at Goodwill for cheap, including a box set of the LoTR series for FIVE DOLLARS. The Lovely Bones has been continuesly recommended to me, and I found a copy in good shape so I picked it up. The knitting needles and all of the thread/yarn were in a pack for like $1.99. I could not believe my luck. And on top of these things, I got new dress pants, and two new shirts, one from J.Crew and one from Gap.
I just love Goodwill.
