A great weekend

We went to NOLA this weekend for this..... see Corrie marry her Prince Charming. We have been waiting for this day, to watch Corrie become Mrs Corrie Moran. And we have been waiting a while! Corrie has been engaged for almost 18 months. When we left NOLA we knew there was no way we could miss their special day. Corrie is a sweet friend who I worked with before the storm & we wanted to celebrate with both of them!

Not only to we get to be there for the wedding but as we say in NOLA this was the lagniappe (a little something extra)......

Time with great friends 
(above me & Jeanine, I miss this girl!)

When I looked around during the wedding & saw how many people were there that I used to work with, I teared up. Here we are almost 4 years later, we are scattered as far as where we continue to help mommas, babies & families start their journeys together. But there we were  all together again as we helped a dear friend celebrate a milestone in her life. It was so fun to be together but it is never enough time! We were hoarse from talking so much & laughing, we have so much fun together!

And adult time! Inman & I enjoyed our time away. This was our first get away leaving 2 behind. We enjoyed our "2 day date" & came back ready to see our boys! 

Some NOLA time.
 Above is a picture of the second line from the wedding to the reception (kind of hard to tell in the picture) but this is a  NOLA tradition & we had fun in NOLA which always involves good food too!

One of the bonuses of the weekend was that it was also NOBTS graduation weekend.
We got to celebrate with Bruce & Laura McGee.
We are thankful for the opportunity to serve alongside them at FBC Lawrenceville.

We were thrilled to be able to celebrate with the Box family too. After lots of hard work (from Bart & Leslie:) Bart received his PhD! We are so proud of our friend!

Bart & Leslie are friends who we have so many great memories with. We remember some great times crammed into small seminary apartments with this sweet couple. I got the chance to keep Rachel (their oldest) when she was just a little thing. She is growing up too fast & they are about to welcome their 4th child! Where has the time gone?

So thankful for a weekend of new memories & time to reflect on some great times in our lives!
