It has been a crazy time with school right now, y’all, so forgive me if my posts are lacking lately.
This weekend my mom, aunt, cousin, and MOH went to an open house at my lovely venue, Vinewood Plantation. I was super bummed that I couldn’t go with and even more bummed that I’ve barely had a spare moment to talk with them about their experience and their ideas. But let me just say that I am SO thankful to have such patient, encouraging, supportive, and WONDERFUL people by my side during this stressful time. Everyone has been encouraging as I struggle through my last few weeks of this spring semester, and I could not be more thankful for that. I promise that I am thinking of you and thankful for you during this time. I can’t wait to sit down on Skype and talk with everyone! I know that everyone is so excited, and I can’t wait for this semester’s stress to be lifted off of my shoulders so that I can be excited too! (I mean, I am obviously excited about the wedding, but it’s hard to show it when I have 2 large papers along with several other projects and major finals here at the end of the semester.)
Another little thing: On Monday night, Cason and I stayed up SUPER late (like 2am, late) to see the lunar eclipse. It was ah-mazing. We mostly stayed inside and went outside every 10-15 minutes to see the progress (mostly because it was rather chilly outside). Well when we went back out right after 2am (when the eclipse was complete), not only did we see an awesome red-colored moon, but we also saw a SHOOTING STAR. It was incredible! It literally looked like it was shooting right towards us. I was so excited! Apparently some other kiddos in the neighborhood thought it was pretty neat too, because we could hear them cheering in neighboring yards. What a cool experience. I absolutely cherish those little moments in time that cause us to pause and take it all in.
Oh, and today is mine & Cason’s first day of pre-marital counseling, eek! We were supposed to start last week, but I think our counselor was out sick. So here we go!
