At Christmastime two of our beautiful (former) youth announced they were getting married! A sweet set of sisters got proposed to on the same night, and their weddings were scheduled for two different weekends in May. Facing a deployment, I decided that May sounded like a great time to trek back home to visit family and friends… and to attend two beautiful weddings!
Here is a fast breakdown of our time in NC… Matt was greatly missed.
Wedding #1: Evan and Anna
iPhone photos and the pics I got with my real camera were not awesome. Here’s one taken by the professional photographer, Carolina Portrait Designs:
Sweet sisters! The one in blue was the bride of the first wedding. I love Evan’s face… it’s like he’s saying, “One more picture? REALLY?!?” Same professional photographer as before, Carolina Portrait Designs:
We saw friends. Lots of them. Most of whom we didn’t get pictures of!
We saw family, and loved every minute with them:
Grammy with the boys at the Schiele Museum in Gastonia, NC.
And finally, I took the boys’ annual “First Day of School” photos, even though we were not really doing school at the time! In fact, these were the official “Last Day of School” and “First Day of School” pictures.
We did school until we left for this trip and started right back up again when we got home. We will take our “summer break” when Daddy gets back from his work-trip. Sweet Spidey… we spent lots of time in the car.
We slept in 9 different places and saw many state lines. It was a trip very much worth taking. We are so glad we went, but wish Matt could have joined us. The weddings were precious and the time we spent with loved ones was priceless. I’m thankful for the friends we have in North Carolina who welcomed us and reminded us of how loved we are.
