Awesome Weekend

It has been so long since I have blogged so I thought I would share some of my thoughts over the past weekend. This weekend I got to celebrate with some friends. Jean got married on Saturday and it was by far one of the most beautiful weddings I have got to witness!! Jean's family is so special. They have this way of when you walk into their home you feel like family! You feel like you belong and you can feel the presence of their Love for each other and the Lord. Steve is one lucky guy to be joining a family so special and to have Jean has his wife. Their love for each other shined throughout the whole day! I am so glad that I got to witness their day!! I didn't think I could afford to go up there but God made it happen!!

I love spending time with Jean & Crystal they refresh my photography brain and encourage me to learn more. They are my teachers! Crystal and I got to go back to where it all began, Turners Falls, MA and remember the Hallmark days! I got to see my landlords and it was cool to be back at the placed I lived for ten months and really grew up! It's hard to believe it was five years ago that I signed that wall in the basement and now here I am! I am so blessed with the opportunities and experiences that I have got to be apart of. The Lord has really shown me a lot in the past five years and my love for him as grown through each struggle, stress, happiness, and with each laugh and tear it has been so worthwhile!! :)

Crystal and I got to drive all over New England! We started out in Hartford, CT. Stayed in Vermont and traveled up to Portsmouth NH (which do not have good signs for highways at all!! Spent an hour circling to find the highway we needed!). They we headed up coast and Kittery, Maine and York, Maine where we got walk on the beach and best of all got to swing while the moon was coming over the ocean!! It was a beautiful to watch God's masterpiece at work! I love the ocean so much, the sound of the waves and the sand in your toes!! I love you, Lord and thanks so much for making this vacation happen! You know I need the rest and good old fashion friends to inspire, encourage, and laugh with! I love you, Lord!

I posted some photos from the trip so mainly tomorrow at work I can show the girls!!! :)
