This Made Me Smile :: Monday :: Five Sinkin' Days

Monday, September 15, 2014

I mentioned this last week....but this is something that is taking up a lot of our time and thoughts.
My sister is getting married in five days.
Five days.
Yikes.
So much planning, crafting, organizing and general excitement is going on around here. 
And I think we are ready.

Friends, Walks and Conservatories

Saturday, September 13, 2014

I have known Anneliese for about eight years now. She is truly one of the loveliest people I know. 
She is oh-so full of joy. 
She is wise. 
She is understanding. 
She is faithful. 
She is bucket-loads of fun. 
She loves Jesus with all her heart and encourages me to do the same.
I am so very thankful for her friendship.
I had the chance to spend an evening with her last week in the city that she lives in.
We took pictures, walked miles and miles, had a picnic dinner, visited a conservatory, laughed and giggled like little girls, talked about life and generally had heaps of fun.
