Phew!  We have been so busy these past few weeks.  Between moving out sisters from college, graduations, and weddings, we have been all over the Carolinas.  Starting in Raleigh, we went to move out Brandon's little sister from her first year of college.  While we were there we got to have a quick lunch with one of our good friends from college.  Going up and back in a day is tiring, but we got it done.  

The following weekend we headed out to Wilmington to see my baby sister graduate from college.  We are so so so proud of her.  It was a great weekend spent with family on the shore.  We stayed in Carolina Beach and it was so relaxing.  We took Piper and my parents' dog Izzy with us.  It was Piper's first time at the beach and she had so much fun!  We even took her off the leash and played ball on the beach.  She was precious!

This past weekend we headed to Edisto Island to see Brandon's cousin, Anna, get married.  It was a great weekend spent with family.  Edisto is so peaceful and beautiful.  The wedding was so fun.

We finally get a weekend at home after three weeks of traveling.  I have had a blast and wouldn't change a thing!

Help Us Fight Back

It is not my style to ask for money, but in this case I am okay with it.  Next week, Brandon and I will be participating in Relay for Life to support a dear family friend who is battling cancer.  His daughter is one of my lifelong friends and she is also an Oncology Nurse at a local hospital, so this cause is near and dear to her heart.  As many of you know, my grandmother also passed away from cancer when I was 11.  She was my life's greatest influence.  Cancer touches everyone in one way or another and if I can take a small step towards helping fight the fight I will do so.  If you would be willing to sponsor me in this journey I would be so grateful.  Even a tiny donation will help.  Click HERE to give on my behalf.  Thank you so much!!!

Be Still

The daily routine, the hustle bustle, the grind, whatever you want to call it, we all get stuck in it.  We move with the flow through the demands of every day life and often do not take time to be still.  This past weekend I was able to take time and be still.  We traveled to Wilmington to see my little sister graduate from college.  We are so proud of her, but that will be another post.  Since her graduation was on Friday, we had all day Saturday to spend on the beach.  While sitting on the balcony watching the waves lap up on the shore, I realized just how blessed I am.  To be still and know that the Lord created this scene, that He is continually working on my behalf, to just be in His creation with the ones I love beside me was refreshing.  I realized I have the mobility to be able to go for a run on the beach, I have the resources to travel, an amazing family, a beautiful puppy, and little to complain about.  The joys in life quickly overwhelm all of the negatives if we will just be still and take time to point them out to ourselves.   So friends, take a few minute this week and pinpoint the joys in life.  I promise it will refresh your soul.

Prom Link Up

In honor of prom season 2012 I decided to join in on Tamara's prom link up.  Prom was so much fun!  I love getting dressed up, getting my hair and makeup done. My junior year I went with a bunch of my girlfriends and we had a blast.  That year, Prom was on a Friday night...yuck! and I was on the Junior Board, so we spent the whole night before (after I played a double header softball game) setting up.  Needless to say, I was exhausted, but still it was so fun!  

Senior year is when Brandon and I started dating.  I can't believe that Brandon and I actually got to share that experience together.  Most couples can't say they went to prom together and are married today.  Our prom story actually played a part in our proposal, which you can read HERE.  It's such a sweet memory!  So here ya go, a blast from the past. 

Junior Prom- 2004
I got that dress for $16, yes 16

It's ladies night!

Senior Prom- 2005
Man, I wish I still had that figure.  You don't know how good you had it til it's gone!
