Summer weddings. This past weekend started the wedding craziness. TONS of our friends are getting married this summer and it is exciting to be a part. Jonathan was a groomsman in this one, and I got to tag along. There is something so sacred about the ordinance of marriage. The vows get me every time! (Oh and just in case you are wondering why my hubby's hair looks funny, it's because his sunglasses are on top of his head.)
There is always a tickle picture.
Coffee. Oh my, I have been trying to wean myself off of caffeine...but I'm still drinking one cup every day. Oh well. I just really love it. Each morning it is so comforting just to sip on that warm liquid while my eyes try to ward of sleepiness.
My TOMS. They are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. I do not regret buying them in the least. Oh and has anyone seen the crocheted TOMS? Can you say most adorable shoes EVER?
Worship music. We have been playing a LOT of music lately. There is nothing like meshing with a group of musicians who love the Lord. I've also found some new worship music lately, such as Chris Mcclarney, Jesus Culture and Elevation Worship. They've got some great stuff!
That my brother and his girlfriend will soon be home! Matt is my closest sibling in age and we have always been close. He has been traveling with Life Action Ministries for the past two years and his girlfriend joined the group last year. However, they will be coming home this July! I am so excited. I have only seen them twice since our wedding, so I am so glad that our visits will be more frequent now!
This girl. I haven't seen my best friend since February! It has been far too long! Fortunately, she is several hours closer now and not too far away from where my family lives. I hope we can see each other soon!
My family. My brothers and sisters are growing up so quickly, especially the little ones. I really hate that we can't see each other more often. They are so dear to me and I miss our times together.
The mission field. I dream about being in Ethiopia several nights a week. I miss being overseas, ministering to those who have needs. I know there are needs here in the States too, but there is just something different about being on the field in other countries. It is easier to focus on things that matter when there are less distractions from our materialistic culture. This time around, I think I'm going to make a video journal every night that I'm in Ethiopia. I don't want to forget anything!
