lesterva Starting tomorrow, I get to spend almost two whole weeks with this guy! Pretty sure that hasn't happened in two years. What a shame, especially since this is the kind of magic that happens when we're together. #engagedchristmas #nextchristmaswillbeamarriedone #wegrowupsofast 1w

lesterva Such a treat to reconnect with this amazing lady. Anna was the director of donor relations during my time at Queens; as a Presidential Scholar, I got to participate in many of the events that she managed. She was such a rockstar at that job, and is now at UT Austin getting her PhD. Thanks to a random connection, I got to catch up with her over lunch in Athens! Anna is just one of the many Queens staff and faculty who pushed me to realize my full potential. Maybe one day, I'll follow in her footsteps to a PhD? Thanks for believing in me, Anna! @queensuniv 1w

lesterva Happy birthday to the gal in the middle! We love you, Sam! Thanks for giving us an excuse to eat chips, drink margs, and feast on donuts. I think it should be your birthday more often. Seriously though--so thankful for you and all these women. #graceathenswomen 1w

lesterva Why would I put any amount of hope in a changing calendar year when I can put my hope in the never-changing, unconditionally-loving God of the entire universe?

But I do. Over and over again, I seek out hope and promise in the things of this world. And I am repeatedly let down, until I find myself dragging, worn out and broken, back to the cross. And Jesus is there waiting for me every single time.

lesterva I think in an attempt to fill the @ramarobs sized hole in my heart/home, I had a sudden burst of crafty energy this evening. Now if only we had more Christmas decor to go along with my little creation... #christmasmakesmecrafty #ionlycutmyselfwiththexactoknifeonce #thiswasharderthanitlooks 3w

lesterva The best part about my job is working with amazing students. The worst part is having to say goodbye to them. So proud of you and proud to know you, @queendeedz! I will miss your random stops by my office, but I'm so excited to see all the remarkable things you do in this world. You're a world changer! 3w
  •   queendeedz Leslie, this is seriously the sweetest thing. You're going to make me cry. I'm so glad I got the chance to get to know you from all those random office visits and coffee hours. Thanks you for always being so welcoming and always being up for random chats even when you were busy. You've made such a great impact on my time in college and I can't thank you enough for that 3w

lesterva Three years ago today, I had a beer with a guy I had met at a bar a month earlier. The next day, we went on our first date...which became the first of many. Last week, the same guy and I went back and had a beer at the same place. Same guy, same girl, more love than we ever imagined. Happy (day early) anniversary, my love! #ifoundmyfuturehusbandatabar #goodguysgotobarstoo 4w
