It’s Your Love

March 23, 2017


“Let our thoughts and words often be “thank You Lord”. Noticing what we don’t have comes naturally, but being a thankful person takes intentional effort. May we do the harder thing.” –D. V. Hinrichs

Carlsbad Getaway

November 13, 2016

2016-11-12_0027 2016-11-12_0030 2016-11-12_0032 2016-11-13_0001 2016-11-13_0002 2016-11-13_0003 2016-11-13_0004 2016-11-13_0005

This past weekend, our friends gave us a night to stay at a timeshare in Carlsbad, and other friends gave us gift cards to eat dinner and grab coffee while on our trip! Whoa, talk about love. They are all in our small group and I am so so thankful for them and how intentional they are in our lives and marriage. Nice to get away for a few days! We did some antique shopping on the way in Temecula, relaxed in the spa, and Eric’s favorite; sitting and losing brain cells watching TV. ;) Happy Veterans day weekend!
