So we took along our fancy camera with all the intentions in the world of capturing our trip home with it. However, we got too caught up savoring the people and events of being home that the only remnants of our visit are pixelated iPhone snapped photos. I would be more bummed if it wasn’t a testament to just how wonderfully full and heart filling our time at home was.
We were honored to celebrate the most exceptional bride and groom. The wedding wound up being perfectly wonderful evening of catching up with old friends, and on top of that making some pretty spectacular new ones (Y’all come visit now!). As for the bride and groom, these two are a truly remarkable couple. They have been together since early high school and are seriously going to kill it as husband and wife. We love them. So much so that after the wedding night I lost my voice for the remainder of our trip because I talked, laughed and cheered way, way too much.
Beyond the wedding which was our main attraction we also caught up with our people. You know those people who enrich your life so much you walk away with a massive grin. We are so unbelievable fortunate to have so many of these kind of people in our lives. So extra thank you for all of those who found time in their crazy lives to connect with us. We really love you a whole heck of a lot.
Oh and an extra big thank you to my gorgeous mama for allowing us to use her house to entertain our revolving groupings of friends. We really, really love you.
Like last visit home we also snuggled a whole lot of babies. Like a whole lot.
Not going to lie, I LOVED it.
We also soaked in all the beauty of the island. It really took moving away to realize how spoiled we where with where we grew up (Thanks parents for picking such good soil for us to grow in. We appreciate it). There are few places as wonderful and stunning at Vancouver Island.
The ocean air and lush greens really did my little heart some good.
Above all I laughed a lot. Like I mean a lot. Like the ugly face, abdominal hurting, gut wrenching type of laughing. It was the best.
So thank you to our families for housing and loving on us, and thank you to our friends for eating, drinking and catching up with us. We miss you already.
