There's a new man in my life...

Benjamin Paul Neilson. Is he the most handsome thing you've ever seen or what?

The happy Neilson family!

Seriously. He's a stud.

All I Can Say

And didn't You see me cry'n?
And didn't You hear me call Your name?
Wasn't it You I gave my heart to?
I wish You'd remember
Where you set it down

This is all that I can say right now
This is all that I can give

I didn't notice You were standing here
I didn't know that
That was You holding me
I didn't notice You were cry'n too
I didn't know that
That was You washing my feet

And this is all that I can say right now
And I know it's not much
And this is all that I can give
That's my everything

-All I Can Say, David Crowder Band

Love. It.

Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I wanna take ya...

... on vacation!!

Patrick and I took a very nice trip last week. We went to Orlando (ish) first to see my grandparents. They actually live in a very nice 55 and up neighborhood outside of Orlando. Then we spent the week at the beach in Gulf Shores, AL with my parents and sister.

It rained the day we had planned on going to this really neat wildlife park, but then there was a pretty rainbow!

This is me and Geemom. (Patrick has more pictures from this part of the trip that I'll post later.)

Our condo at the beach!

The balcony where wet sat and ate breakfast every morning.

Patrick went golfing four times while we were on this trip. Here's me driving the cart the one time I joined him.

Such a pro.

Reading on the beach

Patrick was a boogie board champ!

Pool time! This is the fam.

I missed the 'spitting water at you' photo opp. But I got close.

Packed to leave. :-(

We had SUCH a good time, and it was such a relaxing vacation. We're not settled in for long... Patrick leaves on the 16th for Philadelphia to do some training and I will be joining him up there on the 26th (10 days later... ugh) for some fun and extended family time! Have I mentioned I love summer?!
