Long-distance relationships are challenging!

Texts are great. 

Calls are wonderful.

Skype is an absolute daily necessity.

But NOTHING beats being with each other in person.

Not only did yesterday mark the halfway point between our scheduled visits, but Chris and I met halfway between Huntsville and Jacksonville for a much-needed, but much-too-short day together. 

We seem to be making a habit of meeting in random Southern towns in search of a beautiful park and a park bench! 

We also seem to be making a name for ourselves everywhere we we left one spot, a little old lady smiled at us walking arm and arm and said, "That's the way it's supposed to be."
Truer words were never spoken.

The last page

Last night I made the last entry in my 5-year journal.

Every night for 5 years, I've written a few lines about my day...from highlights to heartbreaks. As hard as it is sometimes to relive certain days, seeing the Lord's faithfulness over and over is daily blessing.

It's hard to say goodbye to this journal, but the next one is new and ready for the next 5 years!

Feeling Neglected

Honey Bunch was complaining this morning that she has been receiving less blog-time these days so to assure her of my love, here's what she's been up to lately...

Laying around...

Trying to hide...

Watching TV...

Losing her mind...

Drinking sweet tea...

Hope she feels less neglected now!

So Happy Together

O Lord, You are my God;
I will exalt You; I will praise Your name,
for You have done wonderful things,
plans formed of old, faithful and sure.

Isaiah 25:1

There just aren't enough words to describe the journey of the last several months since the Lord brought my sweetheart, Chris, into my life.  We can't go ten minutes without praising the Lord for His timing, faithfulness and goodness in bringing us together.   Chris is an incredible Godly man, who often leaves me speechless...and that's hard to do!

This weekend he met my family and we enjoyed beautiful times on Monte Sano, in downtown Huntsville, at Bridgestreet and at church on Sunday.

We are just so happy together...

The minutes until Thursday afternoon can not pass fast enough!

Under Construction

We had a field trip yesterday! As Interior Designers, we will be working closely with architects and general contractors so we all appreciated the great opportunity to get to see an industrial building site.

We were just excited to wear hard hats!

Here are my instructors (Mr. Patel on the far right and Mr. Bunn next to him).
