It's been a month since I last posted here! I'm so sorry! I was sick the last two weeks we were home, and we left 3 weeks ago today. We got home last Wednesday evening, but we hit the ground running: our Winter Revival started Thursday night and lasted through last night (Sunday). When it was over, Wes and I just collapsed. I don't think we've ever been so exhausted in our lives! Today we've taken it easy, just relaxing at home.
The wedding was absolutely beautiful! I promise I will have some pictures for you soon. I can't share the professional pictures because of copyright, but there are quite a few that were taken by friends and family that I plan to capture and ask permission to use on my blog and Facebook. Samuel was so calm through the whole thing, and the looks on their faces during and after the wedding were priceless. The wedding was very well planned by Juliana and her mother, and there were many ways Sam and Juliana made it personal. They honeymooned in Colorado, and are now back home in Lancaster, CA, and beginning their new life together.
We visited tons of family and friends in the week after the wedding, shopped till we dropped, and traveled thousands of miles. It was a whirlwind trip, for sure, but I'm so glad we got to see everyone and do all the little things we wanted to. The Lord even blessed as we re-entered Canada. I had itemized everything we'd bought, had all my totals ready (we were allowed a large value of goods coming back because we were gone for so long), but the guard just asked if we were over our limit - and that was it!
I plan to get back to blogging this week. I've missed reading your blogs and updating you during our trip. We stayed mostly in church mission apartments, which meant no internet access in most places. When we did have it, we were either with family or in a hotel late at night and I just didn't have the time to be online very much. I'm looking forward to showing you pictures and telling about some of our adventures!
