Life lately

I need to start blogging again. I love going back and looking at what we've done. Here's life lately and in no particular order.

So, we live in the Wild West. It's definitely not Myers Park. I pass by this every day and I've always wanted a picture of Westside C(arrie). Andrew has always said "no" until one night when we drove by it and no one was out there so then he said "yes".

 We've been going through Narnia and Andrew finished reading to me The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe at Bearden park in Uptown.

Beach with the fam and this is how that Ginna girl checks her phone. She makes life fun!

The whole crew!

Andrew became a deacon at church. So proud of him and thankful for this opportunity.
 Meeting my friend's babies!

Bridal showers!

Story + Snack at Rozzie! I read The Very Hungry Caterpillar to my friend's children then we had a snack. The cucumbers were not even touched. Ha! :)

My main man.

This lady got married and looked amazing. So happy! :)

So Andrew

I was going through a few pictures I took from my cousin's wedding when I found this one. This is so Andrew. He is always playing with his wedding ring. I love natural, candid shots of real life.

It's been FOUR years in the Queen City! Four years ago I moved from NYC to Myers Park. It was a really hard time of my life and on a whim, I picked up and moved back South. I'm so glad I did. Tonight I was reminiscing about that lil house on Manor Rd. with C&MK. How I still pass by J. Crew and remember those 4am wake-ups so I could be ready for roll-out at 5am. I knew a handful of people in Clt four years ago and now the Lord has blessed me with a husband I love and community- people who feel like family to me. I'm so thankful! 

God is good to us. So good.
