mon costume de danse

my dance costume

here's the PROGRAM to our show
{my name is on page 12, I'm not excited or anything}

i told you... shiny =)
 but it works great since our dance is called "La Lune" {The Moon}

isn't it pretty?!!!  

In two days, I will be dancing in my first show as an adult, 
a dream come true.

As Psalms 37:4 says: 
"Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart."
I love to dance, and I look forward to praising Jesus by dancing.

The show is this Sunday, 30 June, 2013 at 7:00pm at the Théâtre de Nice.
Read about FAUST in French from my dance school.
Here is an article about FAUST in English.

I'll be back with photos for sure.

20 years-old

Joyeux Anniversaire Calvary Chapel Nice !
Happy Birthday Calvary Chapel Nice !

Tu as 20 ans. // You're 20 years-old.
{Thanks for signing our guest book for the 20th Anniversary of Calvary Chapel Nice.}

 {our missionaries}

{discover our history}

More pictures to come, but I wanted to share a small snippet of what I've been working on for the past 6 months or so.  That little book in the middle, the blue one, contains lots of history and pictures from the past 20 years.  I'm so thankful how it turned out.  I hope people enjoy it.

God is so faithful, has been so faithful and will continue to be faithful.
We rejoice in all He has done and all He continues to do.

Let's have a celebration !
I get to lead worship tomorrow with Tonio =)

It's late...
Bonne nuit.
{Good night}

Daddy's Day

I thank God for my Dad, Tim Hutchinson !!!

Daddy, thank you for...
{Sea of Galilee, Israel, May 2009}
  • teaching me how to love the Lord my God with all my heart, with all my soul, with all my strength
  • setting an example of discipline and hard work
  • teaching me how to surf, how to play guitar, how to use power tools and how to change the oil in my car
  • visiting me in Santa Cruz, San Diego, Montana, Cyprus and Nice, France
  • traveling to Israel with me
  • taking the family camping every summer
  • letting us be crazy kids and pursuing our dreams
  • setting an example of what to look for in a husband
  • giving Tonio your blessing
  • walking me down the aisle
  • loving me forever and praying for me always
{Grandma & Grandpa's jacuzzi, 1981 or 1982, nice mooostache =) }

Enjoy this little video of pictures.

I know I speak also for Chelsey and Tanner when I say this: 
You are seriously the coolest Dad ever !!!

Love your Linz-o-matic (Chels-a-roo & Tanner too)

Agoura, London, Nice

the LAST and FIRST photos
in the great transition between my two worlds

visit from our cousin Daniel

morning surf session with my Daddy

we rolled in style... the grey ghost

 not many people can say that their dad surfs better than them
'tis true for this gal =)
you're so cool Daddy

Malibu Starbucks dedicated this day to me
{haha, or maybe the guy taking my order switched some letters around}

 my cousin Lisa came to visit me on my last day with her gals Haley and Della...

 ...and her little man Chase
{thanks so much for coming Lisa !}

i'd say we were in a holding pattern before London, what do you think?
weeeeeeeeee !!!

la Côte d'Azur, always so beautiful

when you come to visit us {wink, wink}, this is where you land, right on the water =)

came home to these gorgeous flowers and a letter from my husband
he is so sweet to me

Love Linz

side note:
Living far from my family is not easy, and I know they wish we were closer too.  But I count the richness, the blessings, the benefits, and they far outweigh the difficult times.  I'm thankful for a family who knows Jesus, who knows that our obedience to Him is way more important that our own wishes.  And heck, they've got a free place to come on vacation in FRANCE !  I just talked to my mom on the phone, and she and my dad really want to come in 2014 - yay !!!
