A Month's Worth of Events

I realized today it is has been almost a month since I have blogged. It's October... I can't believe that! Where did the time go?! I guess I've just been so caught up in life that I lost track of time!

Lots of things have happened in the past month.

I started my sign language class three weeks ago. I absolutely love it! I've learned so much already and I've only been to 3 classes. I can't wait to learn it all! I've been looking up Christian songs on youtube that are interpreted in sign and it's incredible to see how much the signs symbolize the meanings! I definitely want interpret someday.

I had a pumpkin spice latte for the first time ever last week! It was the most incredible coffee I've ever tasted!

I put out some of my fall decorations!

Not much I know. I still have some more to put up and I want to get some wonderfully scented fall candles! Fall is my favorite season!

We made this awesome soup the first official day it was cold! It's a Rachel Ray recipe and it's called BLT and Potato Soup. It is SO delicious!

I found out two of my friends are pregnant again. Congratulations again Kim and Emily! I love you both!

We celebrated Zach's birthday last weekend. We went to Atlanta to the Sun Dial and had lunch at the rotating restaurant.

We went to the Coca-Cola museum.

And we went to the Braves vs Phillies game. Phillies won. :)

Sadly Zach is not even in this picture. We didn't get many pictures of all four of us!

We've started pre-engagement counseling with an incredibly sweet couple that we recently met and instantly became close to. We have so much in common that we literally became great friends the first night we had them over for dinner. We talked forever and then Danielle came to my house a total of 4 times that week. We have so much fun together and I can't wait to continue growing closer with them!

I'm very sad that we don't have a picture with all four of us. We need to work on that one!

Oh, and the biggest news of all....we are officially moving to St. Louis next June!

I don't think I ever blogged about this, but Brice got accepted into the New Frontiers church planting internship. God has been speaking to us for months now about planting a church in Jacksonville. Carl, the pastor at Jubilee Church in Atlanta, put Brice's name out there to Jubilee Church in St. Louis. They sent him some tests to take to make sure he was qualified to be a leader, and then he had an interview. We found out two weeks ago that he was officially accepted and we're moving! We will move up to St. Louis for a year and Brice will learn everything he needs to know about planting a church. Then, we will be sent out to plant one! That's the very super short version of the story. It's very exciting news! God is also moving on some other couple's hearts in our church to come help build with us in Jacksonville. We are very excited to see what God does!


  1. Where to start...? That's exciting that you're doing the sign language class! I know that's something you've been wanting to do for a long time. I love, love, LOVE Pumpkin Spice Lattes and wish that we had more money simply so I could drink lots of those! haha! I also really want to get some fall scented candles. I've been talking about it for weeks now! It's my favorite season, too! Hmm..I already looked at the Atlanta pics... And YAY for St. Louise. I already knew this, but still! :) We will miss you guys, but I'm super happy for you!
