Celebrating 4 years!

 I love this man so much! We celebrated 4 wonderful years of marriage by taking a vacation!
 It was FABULOUS!  It was so nice to be away!  Most of all it was great to get to visit with GREAT friends and then get to spend some time just the two of us.  We started off in KY visiting friends.  We spent the first few nights with the Gillis family.  They are always so much fun to hang out with.  Ike and I always leave and are just amazed at how much they have going on and how laid back they both appear to be.     
 Then we spent a few days with the Craig family.  We got Emily set up with a blog while I was there, and I am really excited to be able to read along with their story!  If you go back far enough on my blog you will see I ask for prayers for this family.  Emily has started sharing their journey, and it is a pretty amazing one.  Ike and I so enjoyed hanging out with them, and fell in love with their girls!  We have been friends with them for a long time, especially Emily and I.  She was one of the wonderful #7 girls that I lived with in college, and love to death!  This trip I felt like we all bonded more than ever.  I think friendships change over time, and I am so glad to see our friendship with them grow like it has.  I know Ike and I left feeling challenged in our relationship with the Lord, and there is really nothing as important as that. 

 When we left there Ike and I spent a few days by ourselves in Nashville.  We LOVE country music especially the stuff from the 80's and 90's!  So we were both so excited to go the Grand Ole Opry.  My favorite was Jamie O'Neal, Vince Gill, and most favorite of all Little Jimmie Dickens.  That little man is so funny!  We also spent a great deal of time at Opry Mills.  So thankful for a husband that does whatever it takes to see me happy even if that includes spending hours shopping and carrying bags for me! We really had the best time.
