Night before the last first day...

Our sweet friend, Angela has spent a few days with us helping her brother get settled back into school. It's John's senior year. I might want to tear up a little thinking about it.

Angela let me take a few photos of her yesterday afternoon while the sun was setting.

I love the progression of the sun going down. The sky is so beautiful in our backyard and it doesn't hurt that Angela is a beauty. 

After the photo shoot we spent some time with Johnny and his roommates decorating their campus apartment. School started today! Zach was missing for the photo-opt.

Johnny - Nick - Marky Mark

and the mature senior year babies... 
The guys with Bethany. 

It makes me miss my Room8!

I remember the day before our last first day of Senior year. We sat outside our dorm and talked about summer, boys, school, God. It was so nice.

 Love her.


I love working for a college and getting to relive these experiences with the students. It is such a blessing to be a part of their lives and these big moments. (even though they don't realize they are big just yet.)

Grace Potter & the Nocturnals

Oh, La La
I am loving some Grace Potter right now.

A story worth telling...

I always feel like something is about to happen. Do you get that gut feeling sometimes? God has been writing a great story for us the past year and even though we feel we are standing still, He has been busy.

I hope to tell you all the story of the past few months soon. It has been tragic and beautiful. We are still in the process of God writing this story and even while I write this, I don't know the ending. I don't know when this chapter will be over or if this is where we will be in the next few months.

Waiting is hard. Waiting on God is a different story since we know He is working and we get to anticipate what wonderful things are going to happen. We also get to be changed, challenged and grow in Him during this time. My heart and mind have had a huge shift in this idea of patience and change and even in waiting.

This is a joyful time even though I have no answers. I hope to share our story with you soon about what God has been doing in our lives.

He is good and faithful.

Today marks my 2nd year of marriage to this man... 

I am so lucky to be his wife and call him my husband. You know when someone says, "this is my better half.." well, he truly is that. (And pretty sure everyone will agree.) He is just great in so many ways. He is such a great husband and an even better friend. Things in our life haven't been easy, but our marriage has never felt like anything less than a dream. We are stronger as a couple and more dependent on God than ever. 

I am excited about the future and watching God's plan unfold in front of us. 

Thank you, Cody for being a wonderful, loving and faithful husband. 
You are now and forever my favorite.
