a collection of friends and memories

after a day of packing up boxes and tubs, we had a small group of friends over as a last party at our rental house. our good friends mike and jocelyn ordered these lanterns as a tribute to our wedding and first two years of marriage spent at this house. my family surprised us at our wedding by buying dozens of the lanterns that we all set off, followed by great fireworks. it was only appropriate to have them at this party.

we have many, many, many good memories here and are sad to leave. but hopeful that the work God will do through our book will have eternal impact, which makes this a very small cost. we will keep working on packing over the next few weeks and be moved before the end of the month.

thankful for family, and friends, even when we look weird and awkward.

:) my experience is that weird and awkward friends are the best.

I can feel the love you have shared for each other in this home and I can feel the pang of sadness in departing. My husband and I have moved often which sometimes is challenging when we have made precious family memories in our home. We've learned it's essential to generate really good memories immediatly in our new location and to remember this earth is not our home.
