San Antonio

We took a little trip to San Antonio for the weekend... it was such a blast. I love getting away from the busyness of life and being just the two of us for a couple of days. It is so refreshing and relaxing. Love my husband!! Here are some pictures to sum up our trip... 
Outside our hotel on the first night
On the River Walk... such an awesome place! So fun to be there at night with the water and all the lights! 
Getting ready to go into SeaWorld!! It was a blast... wish I had my camera to take a picture of M's face when he fed the dolphins!! Left it in the car so it wouldn't get wet :/
At an antique store searching for the Meyrose lantern... Dad, I will be the first to find it!! :) No luck this time! 
Matt in an old dance hall... notice the TX flag above his head... haha, didn't even realize it until afterwards

Hunter Junction!! :) 
Looks like the Buckwild Boys played... too bad Matt and Peter missed the show :)
We loved San Antonio and SeaWorld!! We will totally be going back again! Thanks for spoiling me this weekend Matt, you are the best!

4 years

This past week M and I celebrated 4 years of marriage!
"Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people, and your God my God" Ruth 1:16
What a blessing these past four years have been... We have been all over and moved a bunch of times, but the Lord has been faithful through it all. Whether living in someone's basement, a cute tiny apartment, at kamp, in a family's guest room upstairs with all their kiddos, or in an entirely new city with new faces and no one we knew except for each other - The Lord has been SO faithful to us. He is so good amidst the hard, the new, the not-knowing, and finally the joy of being where HE truly wanted us. 
Baby, thank you for putting up with my tears and my questions. for loving me so well, and for allowing me to find my home in YOU.  So thankful for all the Lord has taught us over these past years and I cannot wait for the many more to follow. Love you!!

master matt

Early in May, Matt graduated from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary with his Masters degree!! So proud of my husband who worked so hard at a full-time job with our church, always gave me his best, loved on students, AND went to school! He did it, and after three years we are finally done with seminary! Praise the Lord for getting us through and for providing for us the whole way! He is so faithful and so good to us!
