*So... I went home for awhile and got to see some of my favorite people in February.
Cute Baby Griffin was born
to my sweet friends Travis and Melissa!
My little sister's baby bump has
arrived! The other day she texted to
tell me her belly button had popped
I got to spend lots of time with my favorite kiddos!
*Then... It was back to reality and back to Tennessee. My trip home was really good for my heart, but I missed my people in the Nooga.
*I got back just in time to hide in the McPherson's basement scared out of my mind from another day of tornadoes! The destruction from those jokers is so sad! I went to Seth's house a couple weeks after a tornado hit his neighborhood (thankfully he and his house are safe and sound), and I almost got lost! I couldn't recognize anything! It's like a bomb went off. So so sad.
*I started leading worship with the Olivia and the guys at my new church here in town. I LOVE that I get to go to church with my people.
*March was a month of weddings.
At the beginning of the month I headed to Nashville for Josh and Lynsey's beautiful wedding.
They met during my favorite summer of camp, Glorieta 2008, and so it was one of the most epic and special reunions ever! Love these people! Love that we got to laugh together, dance together, and pray together! It was a special day!
THEN I headed to Florida for sweet Leslie's wedding with my crazy friends Erin and MeLissa.
These girls are all hilarious, and it was a blessing and honor to stand up next to Leslie on her big day. She was a beautiful bride. Love this girl. So grateful for our summer at Fuge (2007) as roommates, and the journey our friendship has been on since then.
*Gavin Degraw was in town a couple weeks ago so I got to lust over his hotness with Rebecca.
There were a few times that he made me blush. He was L.O.V.E.L.Y
*My sister got me a job working for her company from home, so I'm not poor and jobless anymore! Praise the Lord!
*AND then end of March was capped off with another camp wedding...
My roommate Addie met Drew when she came to our camp as a chaperone in 2010. She moved here in August, and has been a wonderful addition to our Chattanooga family. It was such a beautiful day, and I absolutely loved standing up on stage with Rebecca, Steve, Alex, and Seth in support of Drew and Addie. One big happy family. I got overwhelmed during the ceremony with gratitude that the Lord used camp to change my life... on the stage, out in the audience, there were so many people that I love. Chattanooga feels like home.

So grateful for her friendship
|Olivia and me|
Everyone thinks we're sisters or twins!
Love this girl!
|The Fam, minus Drew and Addie, who had just left for their honeymoon!|
*I stayed at Jared and Olivia's while they were on a cruise, and this guy, Samson was cute but quite the bed hog!
*Went to Atlanta with Zubin, Alex, and Rebecca for Passion's Good Friday service.
It was awesome, and so much fun!
*Now, I'm starting to prepare my heart for the next chapter... whatever the heck that means.
Here's what I know:
I know my lease ends on Thursday.
I know I'm staying with Jared and Olivia until the end of April.
I know that I'm going home in May to spend time with my family, and for my older sister's wedding! WOOHOO!!
I know that I'm going to Florida for training in May, and then leaving for Fuge at Ridgecrest at the end of the month where I'll be on leadership as the financial director.
I know that I'll be working camp until the end of July.
I know my niece will be born at the end of July, and another pretend nephew, and I'll explode with happiness.
I know one of my best friends, Mary is getting married at the beginning of August and I get to be her maid of honor, and go to California for the first time!
And well, that's about it.
I hope I'll be moving back here to Chattanooga in August, but I just don't know.
Mostly, I know the Lord has a plan... a plan that is for my good and His glory. Trying to trust Him!
That's the latest. It's been a busy, but good last month or so, filled with lots of friends and laughter, too many undeserved blessings to count.
