auf wiedersehen, goodbye

There comes a point in the moving process when you are just ready to move!
Andrew and I have found that to be the case as we get ready to transfer our possessions and our lives from one apartment to the next.
Andrew walks around the house and we exchange a look that means, "We're so ready to be in our new place, aren't we?"
We sit down on our couch and share an expression that says, "Can't wait to be in our bigger living space with our new extra-plushy couch, chair, and loveseat set!"

Friday Favorites {No. 30} At the family homestead

It is always so nice to spend days at my family's house.  Because Andrew and I don't know how long we'll live near my family, we value this time a lot.  Here are some pictures from our last visit...

brutally honest moment...

I didn't become a pastor's kid until I was in highschool.  My family has come on a long journey that started when my Mom was diagnosed with cancer nearly thirteen years ago.  We saw the church in action during that time.  We saw people with true love in their hearts.  People who mowed our lawn, cooked us meals, and cleaned our toilets.  It was going through that experience that made my parents realize that they wanted more than to just go through life attending church on Sundays.  So, after years of praying and waiting on the Lord's timing, my family moved and my Dad started attending seminary.  I was twelve at this point.

Friday Favorites {No. 29} Little girls can fish too

I'm not a country girl.  I'm totally cool with that.  I grew up the daughter of a city boy.  I enjoy computers, cell phones, shopping, libraries, theatre, etc... but there comes a time when you just have to throw all of that out the window and just enjoy the great outdoors.  Thankfully, my Mom is much more of a country gal and she kept me close to the wonder of simplicity.  I've discovered as I've become older what a fortunate person I am to have such different parents; because of them, I can appreciate both worlds.
