Everything is bigger in Texas!

Hi everyone!!! Wow what a week last week was! We had the honor of going to Texas to be in one of my dear friends wedding!!! After months of planning, saving, and crafting… the day came to leave and we were so excited to get out and go on a little family road trip! We are such travelers ūüôā

We took the 16 hour drive down to Plano, TX and it was surprisingly fun!! We talked, played, looked at the amazing landscape God created in this beautiful country. We had a BLAST… don’t get me wrong, I was thrilled to see our hotel and get out of the car, but the little man did amazing and we had fun together ūüôā

The next morning I meet¬†up with two of my best friends!¬†We cried, laughed, squeeled, and acted like teenage girls together, haha… it was like nothing had changed¬†since we were¬†all living in the same city

We had¬†coffee together and caught up for¬†a while in the morning then meet up with some of the other¬†girls and bridesmaids that came in from phoenix..then the real fun started! We went to lunch and had soooo much fun! You don’t¬†how much you miss someone until you see them again! And let me¬†just tell you, I MISS these¬†girls!! Then came the¬†BIG day, the wedding day! We¬†got all dolled up and it decided to be a¬†{little} cold outside, and when I say little I mean freezing…haha The wedding was so beautiful and I cried all day… haha… ill be the first to admit it, I was a little bit of a mess…haha… but what do you expect, this gorgeous friend¬†of mine, this woman I have known since the 4th grade, this friend who was there for me in the hardest season of my life, this bridesmaid who stood with me at my own wedding was getting married, MARRIED!!! To the man of her dreams, her best friend, and her forever… how could I not cry? I love love!!! God so knew our hearts when we created us, I mean we were created after His own image and it says in scripture that God IS love, so therefor we are Love and I love how love creates community within your friends, family, and eventually a spouse…. so I cried at that fact, because of the love that God showed us we now show to another and create a beautiful God loving family! Its a great thing in my book!!! Love, Love, Love… hahaha

It was such an honor being in this wedding! I had so much fun and seeing a bunch of my life long friends!!! After Texas we headed to Missouri to see some family and had even more fun!!! No amount of money can buy the fun that we had this past week! We laughed, we cried, we shared memories, we made new memories, and we spent valuable time together! I will forever remember this past week!!! It was defiantly one for the books!!!

As I write this there is a huge little pile of laundry waiting for me to fold it and suitcases waiting to be filled for our next adventure tomorrow!!! We are heading to Phoenix to celebrate family and Thanksgiving….

As I look at these pictures taken this past week and memories of these¬†past few years I have so much to be thankful for… family, love, friends, a house to call my own, a car, a healthy family, a loving family, the ability to choose to stay home with my son, a business, freedom, food, fresh water to drink, multiple shoes and clothes to choose from for my whole family, love, and the list goes on…. The thing I am most thankful for is the love from my Savior… He is so good to me, even in the hardest of times, there is always something to be thankful for. Are you having your worst day, going thru unimaginable tragedy, or just having “one of those days” with the littles?? Take a moment, breath in breath out… feel that, its air filling your lungs, your alive… and not only are you alive there is good in the world… even the small things we can be thankful for… a cup of water, that coffee in¬†your mug, that little baby looking at you, your alive, your breathing…. God is good, he is always good….¬†What are you thankful for? Even if its one thing that you can think of, give thanks to the Lord who gave you that one thing, then look around… I promise you will find so so much more to be thankful for!

Until next week, Happy Thanksgiving week!!!! Lets spread the love people and show our thanks for all that we have been given!!!

XOXO
