What a Weekend!

So...we got back from the mission trip on Friday night and Dan headed straight into a Bachelor's weekend for Tim...less than 2 weeks til the big day! Here's some pics from their kayaking adventures. I spent time with a couple of my sisters...then had an awesome time visiting, eating and shopping at Lenox with Katie Bo (love you, girl!) Monday, Dan and I enjoyed iced coffees as we walked around the Avenue shopping mall and then made stops at my mom's house for a BBQ, two graduation low-country boil parties and Dan's parent's house! Dan's parents surprised hime with tickets to Kenny Chesney at the new outdoor ampitheatre in Alpharetta...this Thursday! We LOVE Kenny concerts and can't wait to celebrate! What a fun past few days...and so much more ahead between the concert, Dan's bday on Saturday and then wedding week extravaganza!

College Mission Trip

Dan and I went as counselors on a college mission trip to Camp Glisson last week. Here's a sample of the fun we had. I can't tell you how much I LOVE these guys. We painted parking lots, cleared trails for a zip line and split wood for camp fires -- all to get the camp ready for the hundreds of kids who will worship God and have fun there this summer. It was an amazing way to enjoy a few days away from my job...even if it was stil HARD work!

Kam's Getting Married!

Soon I will have another sister! My brother-in-law, Tim, is getting married to Kamilah on June 6 -- so the countdown and festivities have begun. Here's a few pics of Kamilah opening shower presents at a couple of recent celebrations...and one of me leading the ladies in a super fun shower game (if you can believe fun ones exist!)

National Day of Prayer

Last Thursday I had the honor of hearing UGA's favorite water girl, Katharyn Richt, speak at the North Atlanta Interfaith Prayer Breakfast. She was so cute, funny and inspiring, one of the best speakers I have ever heard -- the kind that make you wish you were their best friend because then you would have someone cute, inspiring and funny around all the time! Katharyn spoke about being the wife of a major SEC coach, struggles with infertility and adopting two children from Croatia. You could definitely see how prayer and her relationship with God made a huge difference and continues to make a huge difference in her life.

I was able to attend the breakfast because my work was sponsoring it and I feel so fortunate to work in an environment where we can openly share our faith and attend events like a prayer breakfast. And, it was amazing to join hundreds of other business people for a time of prayer and fellowship before we all headed to work Thursday morning. Let's never take lightly the freedoms we have in this country!
