After spending a year apart, Nathans' 30 days of leave this past month was a wonderful blessing. We spent the first two weeks at home and then did some traveling. We were able to visit my parents, my grandparents in PA and then went down to Richmond, VA to visit Uncle Brian and to spend some time at his cottage. The cottage was absolutely, perfectly wonderful and pictures from there will (hopefully) be posted on here soon!
On our way home, we swung by Altoona, PA to pick up some papers for Ariana's adoption. We were able to stay with our wonderful friends' Matt, Jen and Marlow. It was so fun to see Ariana and Marlow playing together- the last time they would have been together was either while Jen and I were pregnant together or at two months of age... they were so adorable and it was wonderful to spend time with Jen again! She also had everyone over the first night we got there so we were able to catch up with my dear, dear friends and set up a "spur of the moment photo shoot" the next day with Julie. And once again- we are in love with her amazing work!!! I'm starting to think that I am going to have to see her at least once a year, so we can get our family pictures done! Thank you sooo much Julie!
About Our Family...
- We are a family who was birthed through God's incredible goodness- joining our hearts and lives in a way we call miraculous. Nathan and I were married April 11,2009, which just happened to be one of the most perfect days in our lives. Ariana is our beautiful, two year old daughter, that we thank God for every day. She brings so much joy to our lives and delight to our hearts. Landon joined us six months ago. He was born with a heart defect and had open heart surgery at three months of age. We are so grateful for his speedy healing and this happy, healthy baby boy! We are an Army family- this is Nathans' thirteenth year serving our country. We recently moved across the country and are loving the life God has blessed us with. Our life is simple, but its beautiful to us and I pray that you are blessed by the beauty that we find in it.
