It's rare to meet lovely people in your college classes. They're out there, I'm sure. But we're often too shy or awkward or preoccupied to meet them I think. I met Catherine, one of the lovely residents of this house in a class last semester and I am so thankful for it. She was such a light in the dread of that class and I am really glad she rapped Kanye West's "Stronger" for us. (Remember that?!) Thank you to Catherine, and her sweet roomies for opening up their doors for my blogging creepiness!
This porch made me realize how important it is to welcome people into your home on a positive note.
