A Big Project...Complete!

I just finished my wedding scrapbook! It took me over a year to complete. Wow! Given that it was such a huge task, now that it is done I feel almost sad. As I have done many pages I find the process very therapeutic and good for my soul. I have decided it is time to start a new scrapbook! The pictures below represent the last few pages of the scrapbook! Enjoy!

Recently, some circumstances in the lives of a few girls I have invested in for many years have caused my heart to ache. During the painful times of my parents divorce, I never thought there could be good to come from it. 10+ years later I am thankful to come alongside these girls and cry with them, love them, and understand exactly what they are feeling.
Thank you for being a God of hope, a loving God, and a God who extends grace. Oh how I long for Heaven and I can't wait to have every tear wiped away!

Psalm 33:20-22
We wait in hope for the LORD;
he is our help and our shield.
In him our hearts rejoice,
for we trust in his holy name.
May your unfailing love rest upon us,
O LORD, even as we put our hope in you.

Last Weekend

I have been so bad about updating my blog! I have been feeling a little off/down and not wanting to journal or share my feelings online. So I am going to post some fun pictures from last weekend.

We celebrated our dear friend Chelsea's Birthday last Friday night! We had a great dinner out, enjoyed strawberry shortcake, and a night filled with games and laughter. We are very thankful for Chelsea's friendship!

Sweet Asher praying!

Kurtis' parents invited us to the UofA football game! The ARIZONA Wildcats beat TOLEDO
41-16, what a game. It was quite hot and humid, but we had fun cheering on the Wildcats!

Getting ready for kick-off!

Kurtis' 10 Year High School Reunion

Over the Labor day weekend Kurtis had his 10 year high school reunion! I am so thankful that we are very close friends with a couple of Kurtis' friends from high school, Curt and Chelsea, so it was fun going with them. We met up at P.F. Changs and had a nice dinner with our friends Dan and Laura, and Kristine and Kevin. We had good conversations and glad we went. It was fun! I am looking forward to my high school reunion next year!
