Labor Day week we were blessed to spend it as a family at the beach. To make a long story short, we were given our vacation to Hilton Head this year. Yep, you read that right. It was a gift and we cannot express what a sweet gift of grace that was for our family. The kids and Matt had not seen “Poppa”/my dad since March and it was a reunion full of laughter, jokes, Band of Brothers, and generally enjoying each others company. We were able to go to a wonderful church service on Sunday and then enjoyed the beach, bikes, and a little shopping for the rest of the week. Matt and I were given a date night and we ate ourselves silly at Bonefish followed by sweet treats from Fresh Market. For our hearts missing Dad and had been so busy since moving into our “new/fixer upper” house, this vacation could not have come at a better time. I’m amazed at the lavishness of His grace, both in the simple and the big!
For the domestic adoption we have been putting together a ton of pictures for a profile. So, for those of you who have been asking for pictures…here’s a bit of our vacation:
