Beach Day Getaway


“And this is the confidence we have toward Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.” 1 John 5:14 (ESV)
We said goodbye to our sweet baby boy at the end of last week. I don’t think it ever gets easier, even when you know God’s hand is moving and shuffling around the pieces of your world to perfectly fit into His plan. We’ve seen time and time again the way He’s turned our brokenness into His beauty but that doesn’t take away the pains of loss and transition. Obviously some goodbye’s are more bitter than sweet while other’s are easier to handle but either way, each baby leaves with a piece of our hearts. 

Over the weekend Ryan and I went with my parents and their pups to the beach and it was the perfect little day away. Now, as the week begins, we will prayerfully await the court date for our little Minnow. As we once again find ourselves in transition, we are excited to focus on Minnow for the next month until court. We’d love your continued prayers for the weeks ahead and that God would allow His will to be shown beautifully and completely. Until then, we are making as many beautiful memories as we can. 


Summer Vacation

I finally got around to uploading our vacation pictures off the camera so I thought I’d share some of this summer beauty with y’all.
In the winter my family goes to Glamis, which I have always loved but in all honestly, I live for the lake in the summer. I have some of my earliest memories from the lake as well as most of my memories of my Mom and Papa together. Needless to say, I can’t wait to make memories with our babies out on the water. For Father’s Day this year, we decided to go to Lake Mead with my Papa and stepmom and were greeted with beautiful weather and perfect water. It was Ryan and I’s only planned vacation for the summer so we were fully prepared to soak up every second away.
Even though the water is super low, there is still plenty of it and we had an absolute blast!
