::we have a house!::

we are so thankful!  we went to houston last weekend and were able to find a house!  it is in an area we are very excited about and feel so glad to be able to envision ourselves there.  

we will be so sad to pack up from c'ville and head to texas, but feel so thankful for the Lord's provision!

get ready for some cowboy boots!

one tri: one well

my amazing sister, whitney, is doing a triathlon this summer to raise money for charity:water.

charity:water is a cause i feel very passionate about.  when i was on the mercy ship, i met the founder, scott harrison, and have since followed the amazing progress of this awesome cause.  whit is going to swim, bike and run with the goal of making a big difference in the lives of some without access to clean drinking water.  she is striving to provide a well for a village!

if you would like to support whitney in her cause, please go here to donate.  100% of the proceeds will go to the well!  even if you can only give a few dollars, it will make a big difference!  and if you can't donate, but want to pass her link along, please feel free to do so.

i am so excited for your tri, whit, and for the awesome difference you are making in helping to build a well!

i love you!!!

we are so thankful for the time we spent at the beach last week with my family.

it was absolutely perfect and was so refreshing to be with my parents and siblings.

we spent most of our days outside on the beach or by the pool and spent our evenings eating delicious food prepared by my dad. we celebrated four birthdays and had an Easter celebration, as well.  the kids loved being side by side and it made my heart so full to see lily and finn with their precious cousins.

 it made me long for my family so much it hurts and i only wish we'd had more time together.

thank you, mom and dad, for an amazing week!!

 ryan and i were able to take a ferry trip over to daufuskie for an afternoon to visit matt and ashley.  ryan proposed to me on this very beach and it was a dream come true to be back again.  oh how i love this island!!!

and for the CAWDS--
(because i just can't get enough)...
