ONE THOUSAND invitations!

















I'll admit, this is a ridiculous amount of pictures that I took of a bunch of cardstock and embellishments, but since I have invested so much time in making these, I want to remember the results of the efforts of not only me, but a handful of others who helped out here and there in the production line, before I distributed them to the ten different congregations of Mormon women who have been invited to our conference. Nine hundred invitations are in English, and one hundred are in Spanish. Now that these beauties are all out of my house, I'll spend the next three weeks working on details of the conference and have my fingers crossed for a successful event, where women will be glad they came to it, and leave feeling uplifted and ready to spread a little love by small and simple things they do for others. Anyone can attend this, by the way. Your presence would be greatly appreciated by me especially.

That is INSANE! How many hours do you think it took you?
How awesome!!! They look fantastic and I totally appreciate the tediousness of making invitations by hand. I hope everyone realizes how much love is invested in those! :) Good luck in the conference!

now that I know a little more about the work going into this, I appreciate it even more! Looks like it will be a great conference and I am exicted to attend. I'll pick my invitation off the floor and keep it where I can see it and be a bit more ready to be inspired that saturday!

Boy! You guys were busy! Our stake announced it in our RS handout, that's it. I hope those women know how much you love and care about them. Almost as much as I love and care about you!!!

Wow! That is really something Kelly. You are amazing! Good reminder too, that someone has put in hours (and hours) into these beautiful handouts which we are sometimes fortunate enough to receive. I hope your sisters appreciate your dedication. I'm sure it will be awesome :)

They knew what they were doing when they called you to the Stake Relief Society (not to mention true inspiration!). Great job, Kelly, I hope all 1000 women show up.

Kelly! You just might be an over-achiever! The invitations look awesome--how did the conference go? I am speaking at the Hong Kong Women's conference in a couple of weeks--but I didn't have to make 1,000 invitations!
I bought the px90 cds when I was home--but haven't started yet. Trying to get the conference presentation done first, and figure out how to watch the cds, since they won't play on our dvd (wrong country code).

Hello, just wanted to say that I really enjoyed the conference, wish I would've felt better. I still have my invite, I can't bear to part with it because it's so pretty. It is on my microwave and everytime I look at it, I think of how greatful I am for the small and simple things in life :)

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Flagstaff House Executive Chef Mark Monette's Family Legacy

Mark Monette, executive chef and partner of Flagstaff House, has been the man behind the scenes in the kitchen for countless special occasions and celebrations. This fine dining restaurant situated a few miles up Flagstaff Road in Boulder, perched at the Flatirons' edge with a bird's-eye view of the city, is where Monette has spent more than three decades fine-tuning his craft in this family run business. The restaurant and staff have received accolades and notoriety locally and nationally, including recognition for being named "Top Ten Restaurant in Boulder," "Most Romantic Restaurants in America" and "Best American Cuisine and Best Wine Selection." (This article is from a Q&A interview I did with him in February, 2017.)
Your father, Don Monette, bought the Flagstaff House in 1971 when you were 10 years old. What do you remember about the restaurant back in those days?
"We would come up here in the summer and work, and it was just busy al…
