A Family Trip to the Big Apple | 2013

  • Christmas in NYC

while we were visiting my sister in PA, we sat in her apartment around 10:00 at night and her boyfriend (now fiance!) said “Hey! Lets do something crazy and drive to NYC just for the heck of it!” While I appreciated his enthusiasm, I knew that wouldn’t happen that night. We were tired and a spur of the moment NYC run wasn’t going to take place BUT it did start the conversation about how we should make an NYC trip happen sometime!! At Thanksgiving we casually talked about going up to New York for a quick weekend trip but nothing was set in stone.

  • Ricky + Corbin | Engaged

not going to believe this but I have yet another couple from ALASKA to introduce you to today! I think these are subconscious hints that we should visit this wonderful state sometime soon! :) I’m so excited to introduce you to this sweet couple! Ricky and Corbin are currently living in Anchorage but I know Corbin and her family from our home church. We love the Wagners and let me tell you, we are so SO excited to be a part of this wonderful wedding!! I loved getting a chance to spend a couple of hours with Ricky and Corbin this past week while they were home for their holiday visit.

  • Christmas Card Portraits

ever stopped to think about ALL THE THINGS we strive to accomplish at Christmas time?!! We literally pack as much STUFF as we possibly can into one month and it’s kind of crazy when you really sit down and consider ALL that goes into the Christmas season! Now, I’m not complaining! I LOVE THIS SEASON! If I could sit in my living room with a glowy tree all year long, I would! I’m tempted to leave our decor up until February!! However, during my late night errands and christmas card addressing, I realized that what we’re accomplishing during Christmas is REALLY impressive!!
