Goodness what a quick, but wonderful weekend! I couldn't believe how quickly it went but hey, I guess that means we had fun. Also, the fact that it's almost the end of July, which means almost moving time, is just beyond me. I realized last night that I need to get to packing because errr... haven't even really started. Ha!

This little gem was sent to me from my sweet, sweet friend, Kate. She knows I always love a good laugh. Love you girl!

Remember that shop I told ya'll about on Friday? This bench is the end result of said shopping trip. I'm so in love with this reclaimed piano bench! We'll be using it at our kitchen table to go along with all of our other mismatched chairs. Of course, pictures will come once we're moved and settled.
Fun fact: That painting behind the bench also came from that same shop and was painted by our dear friend. Love oldies but goodies!
Overall, I'm just so grateful for the love in my life. All of those who wished me happy birthday, sang to me via voicemail, texts, you name it. I was so humbled by the kindness of those around me and their sweet words. I also got some of the biggest hugs from our youth students on Sunday morning so that in itself was wonderful. God has truly provided for me in ways that I'm not worthy of, but so beyond thankful for.
