relaxing at the beach- Ponte Vedra, FL

Daniel and I traveled down to Ponte Vedra, FL to spend about 5 days with his side of the family-what a sweet time! In addition to relaxing, sunning and sleeping, we met our newest family member, Christopher (see below)...so adorable! Some of the other highlights included taking walks/runs on the beach, watching dolphins surf the waves and witnessing a lightning storm pass over the ocean. What a blessing to spend time being still and awing over God's beautiful and powerful creation! I need to do this more often!

a night at the symphony

We have officially been Charlotte-ites for 1 year...I can't believe how time flies. Although we were a little uncertain as to what the "big city" would bring, we have been pleasantly surprised as to how much we have enjoyed Charlotte. There is a lot to offer young people and families...great parks, a fun downtown, sports events, yummy restaurants, live music, festivals and sweet community. This past weekend we went to Pops in the Park with some Uptown friends-what a night of dining over fresh guacamole, sipping on wine and listening to the Charlotte symphony!

our first garden...

So, Daniel and I are trying our hand with gardening this spring and summer. We are hoping for the green thumb blessing... Regardless, it's been fun to work outside in God's beautiful creation. I am so amazed at the intricate detail and beauty of a single flower blossom. What a testimony to a Divine Creator. So far, we've planted tomatoes, peppers, basil, rosemarry and several perennials and annuals. We'll keep you updated on whether our thumbs are turning green.
