Our first garden.

Just cute little guys :) Even so, I still am proud of them, and love our first garden!

These last two are more recent, so the flowers are growing and more full!  Although, I did just cut a few for a friend :) My mom said after you cut them they will come back fuller and there will be more! Looking forward to that!

Revelation 4:11 "You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created."

I love summer!

Just a few fun memories this summer  so far :)

What beautiful women there was in our bible study! I love these ladies they have blessed my life so much.

Paddle boats with Faith and Melissa when she came back in town. She and Lans are home for the summer in Texas. We miss them so much! Can't wait till they come back!

John Michael had my birthday all planned out. He is so thoughtful. He got a few fun little gifts and some money for garage sales together early the next day. The whole day was just so wonderful! After garage sales we went on a picnic with my parent at Saylorville Lake. We grilled out and then threw the frisbee! We then came home and got ready for dinner at Cheesecake Factory. After that my family and some friends surprised me at our house with cake ice cream then a movie to follow. What a fun day! 

Us at Saylorville :)
A pic of the yard sale me and my friend Sarah Ehambe put on! We had a blast hanging out and meeting people. We even served fruit punch and lemonade!

It's about time...


Here's an update
:) Some of the things that have happened since my last post.....

Our friends Jason and Amanda Got married!....

 Then we did!!! :)!!!!
I have an incredible husband.
What an amazing blessing from God.

John Michael gives me Love that I do not deserve. He is thoughtful, unselfish, and so much more...
 He goes out of his way to bless me.. and his love challenges me and spurs me on. 
He is a great leader and such a servant. I am so thankful that he fears God and really loves me as Christ loves the church.

JM's love is showing me and helping me understanding more and more Gods character, and just how much God loves me.

We have been learning so much from each other, growing together, changing together. It is so fun to do life with your best friend.

Here is a pic of some of the wonderful ladies in my life that I adore. They are dear friends and I thank them for being apart of our wedding and all their work helping us! We love you!
