Wedding Bells and Setting Sail

Our sweet daughter, Shayla, and Sweet Pea’s dad, Chris are getting married in less than 2 months!  September 30th to be exact.  We are so excited and beyond blessed to see how God has brought them together and to Him over the {almost} two years since Sweet Pea was born.

When I’m not at work, my days and weekends have been a flurry of wedding planning.  Pinterest is our best friend!  Then, I got the crazy idea to redecorate the younger boys bedroom while they were visiting family in Florida. {pictures of the finished room to come soon!} They like it and were surprised!

Combine all of that with back to school preparations and trying to maintain some semblance of order in our home and I have had little to no time for writing.  I am so thankful that I have the Allume conference to look forward to in October, where I will be refreshed and reminded why God has laid the passion of writing on my heart from the time I was little to now.

Oh and did I mention that the hubby and I are heading off for a just us {and my BFF and her hubby} vacation next month?  {Let me say for those that question my sanity this vacation was planned WAY before our daughter decided to tie the knot}  I am also going to Florida for a long weekend as soon as my new little niece arrives {probably next week}

Life right now is hectic with a capital H but I wouldn’t have it any other way!  This season of life, with young adult and teenage children, is nuts but full of so much laughter and joy, not to mention milestone moments. Jared is getting letters from colleges every week and it has started to sink in that our youngest is going to be 15 at the end of September.

So all of this to say, excuse my absence on the blog while I am busy living up this special life that God has given me.  I will be back periodically for now and more regularly in October.  In the meantime, watch for the new look my little corner of the web will be getting later this month!

And, I would love to know….

What is going on in your life?
