Wow... it's been too long!

I can't believe I haven't blogged since June!  A lot has been happening around here and things are starting to find their "normal" again.

From the top, our sweet boy is 20 months did that happen! He is a complete JOY to be around {most of the time}. He is learning so much and talking all the time. He tries to say what every you do and has mastered Pete and Re-Pete!  It's too cute! He get's excited about trains, helicopters, tractors & water!  He says "mommy" about 300 times before he even leaves the crib. I want to bottle his sweet voice up and keep him this sweet forever. I am his favorite person and he makes sure that every knows that "my mommy" is right there as he is pointing toward me. I melt...can I tell you I just melt!

J and I just celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary!  We took a long romantic weekend get-a-way to Asheville. We rented a cabin far, far in the woods so there would be no contact with the outside was heaven! We enjoyed the weekend together with just us and no one else in "our little piece of the world". It was so good for our marriage. So much has changed in the past 2 years that it had us feeling a little off. Praise God for his provision over our marriage and getting us through some of the most difficult strains in our marriage. We enjoyed holding hands, laughing and just enjoying one another again. Although life is back to normal the bond from that weekend was much needed and we promised to slip away, just the 2 of us at least every 6 months or so. I'm excited to have found a sweet retreat so close to home.

Know let me share some pictures since it has been forever!!!
