What a great day of celebration Saturday was?!?!?! Living 3000 miles away from family and friends, Ben and I have learned the art of celebrating moments from afar! Saturday was a big day of celebration-in and out of the city. So here is a shout out to three big moments...
#1 Daniel Sisco and Karly Alexander became Mr. and Mrs! Ben and I got to know these two during our time in Alabama. While we were serving at Calvary Tuscaloosa, Karly was a student on our leadership team and Daniel was apart of The Well Band. We wanted to be there in person for the big day but couldn't make the trip! We loved keeping up through tweets and updates from friends. Before we moved to SF, Karly invited me over to see her dress when she got it from the store. We love these two and can't wait to see where their life goes from here!
#2 Bret and Jennifer get engaged! Bret, who was a groomsman in the Sisco wedding above, proposed to his girlfriend after the reception! Talk about love being in the air :) Ben and I were watching the Giants/Phillies (see #3) game when we got the phone call-such a fun call to get! Bret worked as an intern in our office last year and was in Ben's Sunday morning discussion group. Jennifer is as sweet and kind as can be and it will be fun to see what the future holds for them!
#3 The Giants just won game 2 of the WORLD SERIES tonight! The celebration started for us on Saturday when the Giants beat the Phillies!!! The game was in Philly but that did not stop people from taking the celebration to the streets! Our friend Josh, is gracious to let us watch the games at his place. So we have to walk right by the stadium to get home. Here is a picture and a video from that night! Sorry the video is a bit sideways :)
with much joy -
