Daddy/Daughter Dance.... with a little surprise!

  • Wedding Wednesday

so so tired of hearing about our wedding.  I understand… I’ve been talking about it for over a year and I can imagine that could get pretty old! … Well, I was going to show some Christmas decor ideas for Wedding Wednesday today (even though it has nothing to do with weddings!) but instead, once again, I chose to do a little post from 101010.  I can’t help it, ok?! I think I’m just trying to relive that day over and over and I’m making all of you go through it with me!

We were excited to fall in love with the kids and to get to know their awesome families…we were ready to be a part of a church family again (since we never really found one in college) and I was so excited about the MUSIC! Oh my gosh. The Lord has completely and TOTALLY blessed Gayton with incredible musicians! It’s really unbelievable how much talent is in this body of believers. Crazy! I was blown away our first Sunday when we visited (services at 8:30, 9:45 and 11… hint hint all of your Richmonders that need a Church home! We’re waiting for you!:).  The worship and the music was amazing and I loved it. The musicians here
