Six Months.

Thank you Jesus for that amazing day six months ago.

To a gagillion more!

"It is...spectacular."

Happy Gameday Tiger Fans!
These pictures are late, but oh well. They still do my heart some good.

Go Tigers! Beat the Pack!

Ps- I miss Death Valley already. 
It truly IS spectacular to be a part of the Clemson family!!!


Assignment Night.

Last Friday, we went to our sweet neighbors' assignment night.

Assignment night is when the guys (or gals) in pilot training find out what plane they will be flying for their first official assignment with the Air Force. They also find out where they will be moving!

Rachel and Mike, our next-door neighbors.

Yay! Their first choice! F-16s to Arizona!!

Cannot believe that was us a little over a year ago.
I must say, watching someone else get THEIR assignment is MUCH easier on the stomach. ;);)

What a fun year this has been! Excited for the adventures to come.
Going to miss Rachel and Mike a lot, but so happy for them!

Love ya-

"Receive my peace. It is My continual gift to you. The best way to receive this gift is to sit quietly in My presence, trusting me in every area of your life. Quietness and trust accomplish far more than you can imagine: not only in you, but also on earth and in heaven. When you trust me in a given area, you release that problem or person into my care." -Jesus Calling

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John 14:27

"In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength..." Isaiah 30:15

Ten on Ten.

Ten on Ten is a blog project where you highlight ten things on the tenth of the month. The purpose is to find beauty and fun in even the seemingly mundaneness of life. Here's ours...

1. Here I am at work. 
We gots lots of files. Files on files. I like it.
So thankful for employment. SO thankful.

2. Here's my husband.
He's about to land in the river after letting go of the rope swing.
He's brave and fun like that.

3. Here I am.
Forever a type 6, I'm dangling above the water considering every bad thing that could happen (a sudden shallow spot, sticks, bricks, a family of water moccasins, etc) while trying to prove I can be brave and fun.
Yes, I let go. And yes, we had a great time soaking up the last official days of summer.

4. Here's all my favorite law gals.
We were at a wedding and had so much fun making a reunion out of it!
I miss 'em already. Could not have made it through those years without their love and laughs. (and wine).

5. Here's my date.
Love 'em more'n my luggage! (Please tell me you love Steel Magnolias, too?)
Going to a wedding with your man really helps you appreciate him more and treasure the gift you've been given. Would any other marrieds say the same?

6. Here's some fun people from Andrew's work.
We had a great time getting together and eating all the amazing food the hosts provided!

7. Here's the delicious pizza we concocted last night.
We used up the rest of the garden. RIP.

8. Here's the sunset over our little town.
I like it here, a lot. So grateful for God's plans and provision.

9. Love ya.

10. Mean it.

Happy Friiiday!

Staying in His Presence.

"In closeness to me, you are safe. In the intimacy of my presence, you are energized.
No matter where you are in the world, you know you belong when you sense my nearness.
When you commune with me in the garden of your heart, both you and I are blessed.
This is my way of living in the world- through you!"
Praying this today:
You are my hiding place, you will protect me from trouble
you will surround me with songs of deliverance (Psalm 32:7)
Whatever I face today, may I trust in you and shine your light!

Business Casual.

Happy Labor Day! 
I hope y'all got to enjoy an extra day to your weekend and were able to spend some time with family and friends!

So, I start my "big girl" job tomorrow and of course it took me forever to pick out that "first day outfit." Then I made a list of all the outfits I will wear for the week. husband didn't really understand this.

For me, it's better to plan than to be running around in the morning. I wouldn't have to make such a list if I wore the same thing, say a flight suit and boots, to work every day. ;)

Anyways! It got me thinking, how do gals dress for the office in this daggum heat?! It's after labor day and you're in a professional setting, so things are limited. Yet, IT IS HOT. I've come up with a few ideas to work with these next weeks. What do y'all think? Any tips?

Blousy tops.

Some warm-weather tops too, just add a cardigan when in office.

Ankle pants.


Lightweight chinos. (in something other than white)
