A joyful surprise...

Reason #1 it is awesome when your in laws stop by randomly.  
I really didn't want to mow the lawn. Or pooper scoop.  
Thank you Big C.
Reason #2...
and 3
Reasons 4 & 5
If you're wondering why I have no face in any of these's because I had no makeup on and my hair was a total wreck.  And I was taking these from a tripod with a self timer, which was the first time I had ever done that. 
And of course I'm kidding. I love fun, loving acts like shopping and lawn mowing, but it is not at the heart of my love.  I had the best time with my in laws. They came late Friday night on their way back from Tampa and they left around 1 or 2pm on Saturday. It was a super short visit but I felt really encouraged and loved by their time here.   If you work with me, you'll notice that I wore the red version of this blue dress today.  I had already bought the red dress and loved it, so I thought that everyone could use the same dress in another color.  :)  I love dresses. I love spring and summer. Flowers Blooming. Pollen in the air. The weather is not so burning hot that we can actually go outside... Hooray.
I feel so loved by my in laws.  They are the kind of people that would drive all night to come to your house if you were having a tough day.  They just love so deeply.  They are unconditional, caring, incredible people.    My parents do too, but I just feel thankful to have married into such an amazing, Godly family.
Have a wonderful week. Happy Monday!


  1. Where did you get these cute dresses?! I love the blue top/black bottom one - too cute.

  2. Ditto, where'd you find the blue dress? that might need to be added to my wardrobe!

  3. The dresses are all from Marshalls!! In Hilton Head, they had a red (on top) version of the blue dress, so I already bought that. I love it! If they don't have it at your Marshalls...I would buy it for you here. :) I love it that much!
