Wow, August is almost over, and I haven't blogged in weeks!
July was a busy but fun-filled month. I will update you with mostly pictures...
Our weekend "stay-cation"...
We got a Groupon for a Tempe resort to get some much-needed time together.
We read, relaxed, swam, talked, and explored downtown Gilbert, where we found the cutest restaurants!
Next up... iCon
iCon is Antioch's international church planting conference, which happens every other summer.
It's over a week long of worship, speakers, rest, reunion with friends and family, and just an awesome time to be refreshed. Our whole team road-tripped up to Winter Park, Colorado (a 14-hour drive) after church on Sunday. Yes, we drove through the night! Let me tell you... I'll take a 14 hour plane ride in coach--next to the bathroom--over 14 hrs in a Suburban.
Andy and I had so much fun and felt so privileged to be among hundreds of faithful, obedient, selfless men and women who have given their lives to serve Jesus all across the world.

We got back from Colorado on a Tuesday night. I worked at the hospital on Wednesday, then we went to lifegroup, left early and took the redeye to Boston!
We were so excited to see family and friends!
My beautiful cousin (really, second cousin) Chelsea of Chelsea Gwynne Jewelry got married to her best friend on July 28th.
Our good friend Courtney Trahan also got married on July 28th!
The great thing was that Courtney's wedding was at 11 am and Chelsea's was at 4pm.
Yes, we wedding-hopped!
|little brother Nick had a friend's wedding to go to in Houston, but |
we were so glad to catch dinner with him before he left!

|Andy's best friend growing up, Matt Plummer (here, with wife Cassie of Cassandra Plummer Photography) moved to|
Boston the summer we moved to AZ! Sad. But so fun to see them (she photog'ed the wedding) thriving in Boston.
They are a popular and well-loved couple at CFCF already!

this picture took some finagling due to the sunlight and the way the deck was set up!
