Saturday Morning Delights

These past couple of months, I've been so busy {girls' camp, babysitting, working, pilot graduation, traveling, honeymooning, trying to spend some time with my husband, blogging, photographing, etc} that I have not really had too many relaxing moments.

Which is why I was so grateful that I got to sleep in past 7am this morning. All the way till 10:30. And it was quite heavenly.

My husband made me breakfast. Which was just delightful. 

And I have nothing planned for today. Which means that I don't have to do anything I don't want to do. And that's always nice. 

So this Saturday afternoon, I would like to share two things with you.

1. There is a fantastic giveaway going on by a blog designer. I have seen some of her work, and let me tell you, she has done some pretty amazing stuff. So please check her out and enter her giveaway! {Or don't so I can win it! ;) I don't know if you've noticed, but my blog is pretty poorly designed}. Even if you don't want/need a blog redesign, check her blog out. She seems pretty awesome herself.

2. There's the kid who lives in Australia named William Hopoate. He is a rugby star. Comparable to some of the great rugby star. At 19, he was offered a 1.5 million dollar contract to play for a professional rugby team.

He turned it down.

Why? To serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Regardless of your beliefs, you have to admit that that is a huge sacrifice. For someone to give up their lifelong dream. Something they have been working towards their entire life. 

I had an opportunity to speak with Will himself and let me tell you something about this kid. He is the most humble person I have ever talked to. He fully admits that he has been so blessed in his life. He puts complete trust in the Lord to put him where he needs to be. 

Even if that means he never plays rugby again.

What an amazing example of faith. If you would like to hear a little more of the story, read it here.
