Celebrating 5 years of marriage to my best friend!!




Chris planned a fun weekend at the beach for our 5 year anniversary.....he is the BEST!! It is so hard to believe that on Saturday, we will have been married for 5 years. I feel like he has always been in my life. He is my best friend.....there is no one I would rather walk along side with. Thank you for loving me and serving me while I have to walk through some dark days. I still can't believe you love me as much as you do....I am blown away. I love you hubby.

This trip is just what I have needed. There is something magical about the beach to me.....I feel so alive here. It was an incredible feeling watching our baby girl walk on the sand for the first time in her life. SHE LOVES IT!! She ran up and down the beach as fast as her little legs could take her....she would pick up the sand in her hands and throw it.....and tried to run straight into the waves (again, she is fearless). Then, we took her to the indoor pool.....wow, she loves to swim. Watch out Michael Phelps!

Pray for my heart this weekend.....for restoration and healing to continue. I want to live fully for Christ.....I want to be an example. I want to love well. I can't do this without the Lord.

Love you all,
Lindsey

P.S. To the incredible family in our church that let us stay in your condo......I am so thankful!! It is BEAUTIFUL!!!! We are having so much fun. :-)

Happy Fifth! What a wonderful hubby!!! Enjoy your time together away from everything. That is one thing we wanted to do before the baby arrived and it just never happened. I am already looking forward to the day we get to "get away". Eliana is so cute! I know how much fun you are having experiencing the beach with her!!! God Bless!
