To say that this past week was amazing is an understatement. It all began when Caleb came down to attend a Mavericks Finals game with my family (the only home game we lost- of course… great game anyways though). The next morning Caleb and I made our way up to Branson where he returned to K West and I stayed at a cabin. While in Branson I was able to finish a couple of online courses, work and have great quiet time with the Lord. There is something so peaceful and relaxing about being in a cabin with a fireplace. (Check out these cabins here!)
While in Branson I even was blessed with the opportunity to serve as a Kitchie (served and cleaned in the kitchen) at K West the night of the Western Party and then a full “K West Sunday.” A couple days later Caleb’s parents and grandparents and my parents and grandparents arrived in Branson. Caleb took a 4-8 (basically a forty-eight hour break from Kamp) and hung out with all of us. (I should probably mention that our families had yet to meet! Talk about exciting!) Over the course of the weekend we were blessed with the opportunity to relax, get to know each other and enjoy each other’s company. The families toured the area and one night we barbequed on the back deck. Each night Caleb and I got to relax in a hot tub under the stars! We even got to show everyone where the wedding ceremony and reception will be at Big Cedar! It was so much fun getting to talk about wedding plans with everybody! After spending the weekend with everyone I am more excited than ever to begin my life with Caleb! Not only did the Lord bless me with a wonderful and godly fiancé, he is blessing me with a wonderful new family! I could not have asked for a better weekend! It’s true:
Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Which is more than likely more than you can fathom :)
Each day I grow even more excited about our wedding and fall more in love with Caleb! So far we have the venue, the caterer and the photographer! I’ve also decided our colors :) What’s next? Anyone have any suggestions? Seriously, I’d love any tips or ideas!
