Yes, I'm still among the living...

Hi everyone who may have noticed how little I have been blogging recently...

Between having a broken finger, travelling to Utah for a week, needing to rest and recuperate, and just being busy living and breathing... I have had to cut back a lot on emailing and blogging.  And yes, the broken finger is more the cause for that than anything else.  ;-)  And yes, I DID end up having surgery to fix it.  I get the pin removed on the 29th (four weeks after it was put into my poor, tramatized finger) and will then upgrade to a different kind of splint.


Thankfully, life has been low-key since I returned home after spending a week up in the mountains with Andrew's parents.  Meeting and spending time with them was such a joy.  They are such wonderful, Godly people and it encouraged me so much to be able to get to know them a little as we served together at camp and then later at their house relaxing a bit.

Since I don't have pictures on my computer from my trip yet, I will instead share pics from a trip we took to a wedding.  I hope you enjoy!  It was such a sweet, beautiful wedding and I was so excited to see the beginning of my two childhood friends' lives together.

Beautiful scenery

AWWWW!  I don't know which of my sister took this picture (or how they managed to get it)...
but I like it!!!

What a perfectly gorgeous day!!!

Walking to the reception with a "blog-friend" I hadn't seen personally for quite some time.
It was SO nice to see you, Breezy!

Andrew is such a great guy.

Lovely Natalie in the car on the ride back.
(Thank you, Andrew, for driving us for hours to see people you didn't know at all!)

I will continue to blog as I am able.  It can be interesting with my finger all splinted up... its pretty tired and hurting a bit now from being jostled so much, so I'll have to sign off.

God bless!!!
