Blessings in the form of a rug

The Lord has been teaching Heston and I a lot lately and we are always amazed at his provisions and blessings. I was having an interesting day at work yesterday as my boss if "office-less" and has therefore been in my small space the last 2 weeks. It is not easy, but I constantly am reminding myself that she does not have an office and she is not trying to be in my space but has to. Anyways, I spent quite a while giving over many situations in my life to God and just talking to Him and praying. It was a great time! After lunch, we went over to our old office to pack up our boxes and that was not a fun process as it was hot and it we had no electricity. I went and did my packing and then went up to help her. Long story shortened, she has this rug I have admired since she bought it. I asked if she was going to bring it with her and she said no and asked if I wanted it! I was so excited! I Think the reason I liked it so much in her office was because I knew how good it would look in my house. I told one of my friends about this a while back and we talked about this situation. I thought it was so awesome how God gave me this special blessing!

Then today, she gave me a $50 gift card as a thank you for putting up with her and for being flexible with the office move. Again, another unexpected blessing.

I just wanted to give a shout out to my wonderful husband. He has been working so hard with his summer job and also working on his business plan for the restaurant. I am thankful for how he is working hard to provide for us and also to plan for our future. I am thankful for his encouragement with my graduate school adventures. He is a wonderful husband and I am so glad that God led me to him. I can't believe our 5th anniversary is coming up.

Wonderful Vacation

We just got back from a wonderful vacation to the Outer Banks, NC. We went down there with all of Heston's family and we had an awesome time! We rented a house right near the beach and spent our time relaxing by the pool, playing in the ocean, having great food, and having fun being together. I have TONS of pictures so I will post some here, but the rest are on facebook.

Yeah for summer vacations!
