My plan for this trip was to stay in Wilmington instead of going home to Greenville because of the logistics of changing locations with a baby. Ryan and I have learned that after traveling so far, long car rides are normally NOT a good idea and that it normally takes JT several nights in a new place to get settled enough to sleep decently. We try to keep from bouncing around too much from place to place when we are gone. However a couple of weeks before we came a special event occurred which meant we needed to make an exception to our rule….
Shannon and Andy are getting married!!!! Whoohoo!!!! Shannon was one of the very first friends that I met in college. We lived a couple of doors down from each other in the dorm and ended up living together for the rest of college. She was also a part of my bible study group that is so special to me. We have prayed for many things for each other over the years and “future husbands” has always been a big one. It’s been amazing to see how God has answered those prayers through Andy. Andy is from Greenville and actually went to my high school. I love that Shannon is marrying a Greenville native! I promised Shannon a while ago that I would do everything I could to go dress shopping with her since I made her watch me try on a couple hundred dresses when I got married. I switched my ticket so I could stay in Greenville for a weekend and got to go look for dresses with Shannon and her mom. I can’t show many pictures of the bride-to-be without giving anything away but let me tell you this: Shannon is going to be a beautiful bride! I’m so thrilled for her and Andy. Congratulations to you both!!!

When we got back JT sampled his first ice cream cone. It was a huge hit!
