I was fortunate enough to get to spend part of this week at my grandparent's house with my sister and my nephew. Here are some updated pictures of Janis and Quint, and Quint charming his great-grandparents:
I was also fortunate to be able to spend Friday night and Saturday catching up with some of my best girlfriends from undergrad. We didn't have any elaborate plans - we just punctuated our constant conversation with meals, spending most of our time lounging around in various rooms of Tera's house. We laughed, we reminisced, we dreamed, we cried. I love seeing the beautiful women my friends are becoming and the way God is constantly shaping them. Friends are such a blessing!

(Not quite worth the trade on a daily basis!)
