One of my favorite seasons... S-u-m-m-e-r!

Where have I been? Doing summer like things and soaking up this summer before it's gone. I am going to try and catch up on reading blogs today! :)

Here is recent happenings, including our wonderful 4th of July Weekend!

We attended a wedding.. as guests! It was super fun, beautiful wedding but I kept my camera in the car. Brave? Yes. :-)

UPDATE: I totally forgot to upload this photo! I got to support one of my best friends... Stefie run a half marathon on the 4th - bright and early!!

Also, we had our 2nd annual 4th of July family party. It was so fun! I love parties... and especially themed parties. Here are some snap shots from our time...

 

Amazing day with family and friends! What a blessing to have the freedoms we do :) That's something to celebrate!! I have been encouraged lately to read about ladies who read my blog. What a humbling thing to know that my words can encourage you so much. Thanks for sharing ladies .... you know who you are! God has MAJOR plans for your lives!!!

As I launch into this week of craziness once again... 4 photo shoots, a wedding, lots to edit... I am thinking about the PEACE that passes understanding. The bible says, it will guard your hearts AND minds in Christ Jesus. AMEN!
