B and i got the most incredible advice

from a couple we had the privilege

of getting to know last year.


they, too have a child with special needs

and the wisdom they provided for us

has been an incredible blessing.


one of the many, many insightful things they said

was to be sure to spend one-on-one time

with your typical children.


and so last week, K and i had the privilege

to go on a trip.


just us girls.


and yes, as you can guess,

it was incredible.


we got to visit my sister and her hubby and baby boy

and then we headed to a bridal shower in Alabama

for my other sister.


i hope and pray

that there will be more.

many more of these special trips to come.


it was an absolutely delicious time.



here are a few of my favorite moments from the trip:


waiting for K to wake up from nap

a red front door

snuggling up with my favorite girl

the sounds of classical piano music

hearing moos out the window

coffee drinking without anywhere to go

organized closets

snuggling up in a yellow blanket

kissing K awake


B held down the fort with both boys
and a lot of help from my dad.
and K and i traveled to four new states.
we headed to:
then Georgia.

many, many more photos to come.
stay tuned.

The LORD does not look at the things man looks at.

Man looks at the outward appearance,

but the LORD looks at the heart.

1 Samuel 16:7b
