Happy Friday! I'm excited to kick off the weekend with a little virtual coffee date with you! It's been so fun doing this the last few months, and each time you guys share such beautiful, inspiration, and fun updates on life. I so wish we could meet up in real life for coffee (some of us did finally get to meet that the Renew Retreat last week--yay!), but until then I'll keep hosting this date twice a month for us to come together, build community, and share hearts. So grab your coffee, hot tea, or smoothie and let's get to chatting!
Two years ago today, Lamar stole me from my workplace, drove me an hour north of Atlanta, and took me on a hot air balloon ride.At around 3,000 feet he asked me to be his wife! I'm so thankful for those beautiful memories of us sailing up into the sky, celebrating our new life together, gathering leaves from the treetops, landing in someone's side-yard, and calling all of our friends and family with the exciting news. And good for you, we got it all on video! For your viewing pleasure...our proposal!
Ahhh, the warm fuzzies! :) I'm so glad Lamar made sure to capture the proposal on video. I thought he was just recording it so that we could watch our ballooning adventure and show our family. Turns out there was a much bigger reason. You can read our proposal story here.
Highlights of my week...
This week has been conference week, which I figured would be insanely stressful. I was really dreading this week, but it has turned out to be a great week! Praise God!
Last night, Lamar, my sister, and I went to the Fest of Ale at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. We tried some seasonal brews, listened to good music, and explored the gardens. I've been wanting to go for a couple of years now, and finally made the time! I'll share photos next week. Until then, check out my grams!
Last weekend, I traveled to Tennessee to spend the weekend with 14 amazing blog friends for the Renew Retreat! It was such a beautiful weekend of relaxation, bear-sightings, and coffee (and lots of it). Photos coming soon!
Lowlights of the week...
Although this week has been good, I've still been in such a funk. The desires of my heart aren't lining up with where I currently am in life, but I'm continuing to learn more about myself through situations that God brings to to. I'm excited (and honestly a bit nervous) to see what the near future holds. Change and taking risks is scary!
