Sewanee Annual Christmas Tree Lighting

An Acapella Christmas!!

I was so delighted to get to be involved in the annual Christmas tree lighting at Sewanee by getting to sing Christmas carols with Cadence. We sang several of our favorites with the rest of the students of Sewanee singing along. They lighted the Christmas while our voices were high with Christmas cheer. As buddy the elf says “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.”

The Vice Chancellor said some kind words and Santa Claus joined in on the celebration. It was the first time Miranda saw Jolly Old St. Nicholas and she was so happy! The most exciting part was that my mommy came to Sewanee for the weekend. It was great fun to see her and spend time with her. She came to lessons and carols which I worked at because I am a Sewanee angel. She really got to know her “Chinese daughter” or our little dumpling as I call her. Miranda has decided that she will love being one of my mom’s many children. She even thinks she will be the favorite because she is the only Chinese daughter my mom has. It was great fun shopping in Nashville and going to the Nordstrom club cardholders party! That was so fun because we accidentally stumbled upon this event, it was a catered event complete with a DJ and mini foods. We sipped virgin mimosas, ate mini grilled cheeses, and pretended to buy Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Gucci. The dumpling loved this!!! We laughed so much we were almost sick. We also ate lunch in downtown Nashville at Southern which I give high marks! They have an excellent atmosphere and their food is to die for-AMAZING. You can see on my IG that we stopped at Draper James one of my favorite little stores where we enjoyed sweet tea and southern trends.

The best part of the weekend was when Miranda and my mom came to my new church with me. My mom finally got to meet my friends and church family! We were so happy that our little blessing from God Miranda came with us. It was her first time at a church and I couldn’t have been more happy that it was with me and my mom. I know that God placed that little dumpling in my life for many reasons and I am so happy watching his plan unfold in our friendship. My mom spoke a lot to Miranda about her potential and the blessings that God has in store for her life! Miranda even talks about the blessing that she is to me from GOD! I can’t wait until the next time she comes to church with me, and I am so glad she got to learn about the true meaning of Christmas with us. JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON.
