This “S” could stand for “special.” As in the truly special kind of person that you’d know is exceptional even if they weren’t your good friend; who would be special for any number of separate reasons, but when they’re all together in the same person — wow. Or that special kind of friend you’ve known for years, where you always pick right back up where you left off, even when you haven’t talked to them for a long time.
But it actually stands for The “Savoy.” As in the country’s oldest continuously operating hotel west of the Mississippi.
A landmark on the National Register of Historic Places, built in 1888. Host to Warren Harding, Harry Truman, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan...
Such as these four college friends who — after a quick run-through by iPhone near the restrooms — performed their fraternity-sweetheart serenade for Cassie. (Heck, the solos they each sang during the wedding itself made me want to get the ceremony soundtrack!)
I’m so glad we got to share in their special day; to be part of a whole host of people — from so many different places, through so many different connections over the years —

Yesterday was Kansas City's largest one-day snowfall in 101 years. At times it was coming down at a rate of 4 inches per hour, with 2- to 3-inch snowfall rates for four consecutive hours! So when there was finally a break in the action, I headed outside to shovel the driveway ... and take a few pics, as well.
They don't always show up well in a picture, but one of my favorite things after a windy snowstorm are seeing the unique designs left behind.

Leslie saw that AirZone had free admission yesterday afternoon for its Facebook friends, so I took the boys there after church. They definitely could stand to run off a little steam.
