the good stuff

it's been an eventful june and i've meant to write this post at least five times but here i am, almost in july just filling in the blanks!  all the excitement started in Kentucky where my baby sister graduated from high school.  i can hardly believe she's headed off to the university of louisville this fall.  i'm so proud of the person she's become and beyond confident in her ability to succeed and above all, always treat others kindly.  couldn't be more excited for all she has ahead!

that weekend, we also celebrated baby m's upcoming arrival at the most wonderful baby shower.  it was so good to see how many people love this little girl already.  my heart is full.  our friends and family are so generous and we could never fully express our gratitude.  thank you to everyone who has joined us in celebrating, preparing, and especially in praying for baby m!

the adventure continued in new york city where i finally made it to visit megs!  i cannot say how glad i am that we were able to make this happen.  it was so good to see my favorite city girl and explore.  we spent a day in central park, visited the world trade center memorial and even did some shopping in soho.  i can always count on meg to show me a good time.  

i finally made it back to my husband in texas but only just in time to head to california, maryland for the murray family vacation.  gus and allison have the setup at pax river and it was so nice of them to have us!  if only marine aviators were ever stationed there..... :)

now we're all settled back in and missing our family and friends more than ever (i don't think they come any better than ours!!).  we even had to say goodbye to a few texas friends as they moved on to a new duty station.  here's to hoping we'll cross paths again, brandon & loren!!

the next few months will be spent savoring teeny baby kicks and time with just the two of us;  trying not to get ahead of ourselves and wish away these moments but we are so excited for baby to arrive.  i can't resist a smile every time i walk into her nursery (still coming along) but i know that today, too, is so special and full of blessings.  

all our love from texas!  -C
