Love is in the air

Over Memorial Day weekend Ben and I got the chance to go to Tuscaloosa, AL to celebrate the beginning of Jordan and Carlin's marriage. Jordan and Carlin were both students in the college ministry we served in AL and Jordan worked in our office at Calvary as an intern while I was there. Carlin is a teacher and Jordan will start seminary in the fall. I can't wait to see how their life unfolds. They are both very dear to us and we had a blast being a part of their special weekend.

It was a treat for us to get to stay the weekend with our dearest friends and to spend time with people we love and miss!

*A bubbly goodbye

*So I didn't get a picture from our dinner with the Carrolls or our BBQ with the Brooks. Somehow, I did manage to get a picture of the table set for dinner and the boys doing the dishes...haha

It was such a fun, relaxing weekend for Ben and I. I also got the chance to share an update with Calvary on Sunday morning about what God is doing in SF and how things are going at Epic. It was special for me as they have been a huge support and encouragement for Ben and I.

I cherished the time spent with one of my very best friends. So many undocumented moments of laughter, good conversation and fun times just being together.

6 years and counting...

So on May 21st Ben and I celebrated our 6 year wedding anniversary. It is hard to believe all that has happened in the last six years...

Ruston, LA to Tuscaloosa, AL to San Francisco, CA

The last 6 years have been full of the most amazing times and some of toughest times of our young lives. We have seen God's love, favor and faithfulness throughout it all.

My love and respect for Ben as a husband, helpmate, provider, protector, friend and follower of God has increased with each moment of every year.

Ben and I took time to push pause on our busy lives and celebrate. Here are some pictures from the overnight trip we took to Monterey, Carmel and Pebble Beach.

Here's to 60 more amazing years...
