*Uncle Gary (my dad's brother) passed away on September 22. I was already planning on leaving on Wednesday morning to be there to see him one last time and attend the funeral that was to come; he passed away early that morning. I spent the weekend with my family and that was much needed for all of us.
Uncle Gary suffered greatly, but his spirits were always high. My family was exhausted physically from being by his side for months and emotionally from seeing him suffer. Praise the Lord that he is no longer suffering!
*Jonathan and I joined my married family for Fall adventures at The Rock Ranch, which is owned by ChicK-Fil-A founder, Truett Cathy! We had such a wonderful time roaming around the ranch. I had never been to this sort of thing and I was ready to have fun! I was especially excited about the corn maze, but my camera battery died before we got started in it. :(
*Jonathan and celebrated our TWO year anniversary. I am overcome with emotion when I think of how the Lord has blessed me with a great marriage. I definitely married by best friend.
Since our anniversary was on a Monday, we celebrated our marriage the weekend we were out-of-town at The Rock Ranch by spending the night in a beautiful hotel and going out for dinner. The next morning, we went to outlet stores and spent the day shopping together! I love shopping with Jonathan because he shows me what he likes for me and I'll try it on and show him. I love buying some that we BOTH love! Every woman loves for her husband to say, "You look cute!" Of course, I do the same for him and it's so fun!
