a weekend at home

this past weekend was spent in my sweet hometown, thomasville. my older sister, jennifer, brought her two babies to town for a visit and i was so glad to see them! i’d only seen vivian (7 months) once, and elliott (27 months) had grown so much since the last time.

Imagehow cute are they? it was ike’s first time meeting his niece, and i think she was a fan!

another reason for my trip home was that a sweet friend from high school got married! i’ve known joseph for lots and lots of years, and i actually grew up going to church with his now-wife, lori. these two are such a beautiful example of a committed and Christ-like relationship. i’m not sure if it’s because i’m now married, but i shed many, many tears watching these two commit their lives to each other. and how beautiful was the ceremony site?

the forecast showed rain all day, but the weather couldn’t have been more perfect.

it was almost like a class reunion! it’s a rare occasion that all 4 of us are together these days.
