husband out of town=sad day.

David has been on a cruise with Booster since wednesday so I have been flying solo. The only other time we've been apart during marriage was when I went to visit my grandma for a weekend. Needless to say, I have been missing him so much! I guess absence really does make the heart grow fonder. I am literally counting down the hours until he gets home. The Lord has been so faithful through this time and has really sustained me. I have only cried once which for me is really good. I'm just an emotional person. I am so blessed to have the sweet Bakers to take care of me and keep me company. I have even done some really fun things...drew and ellie holcomb concert (my favorite), dinners, walks, shopping, etc. So it hasn't been all bad. I am ready to have David back home...and that is today's sob story. :)


i'd be a really good stay at home mom...

well, minus the child. I have taken today off of work and it has been the most glorious day. David and I realized that we are so busy doing stuff with small groups, work, etc and he have started to neglect time for just the two of us to hang out and have fun. He leaves to go on his "work cruise" to Cozumel on wednesday and I wanted to be able to soak in some time. I have made some cookies that he adores (thanks to Meagan Gibson) and just hung out. It's amazing. If I just didn't work I would be able to have cookies all the time! haha.
Our holidays have kicked off to a busy start. It's good stuff to be busy with but still tiring. We had a "camp out" with our small group this weekend. It was so good. We did "Life Maps" which are basically an organized testimony and more in depth. People were so vunerable and it's amazing the stuff people go through. We get so caught up in the surface and don't take time to dig a little deeper. We are so blessed to be in such an amazing group of people to share life with. We helped to Bakers decorate their Christmas tree last night. It was so much fun to go back to childhood and see how much fun it is for kids. It's amazing how your idea of a Christmas tree goes from looking at every ornament in depth and in awe to trying to pick out just the right shade of red. wow.
Got to go finish making cookies for my precious husband..
