-last saturday dillan and rebekah got hitched, and never mind the drizzled dampness: the whole day was sacred and gorgeous.




more soon. (or knowing me, not so soon. but i will post more wedding loveliness at some futurish date.)

-this weekend we are sharing about our upcoming missions work at our very first church. we might be a wee bit nervous, but it's a warm and familiar crowd, and we're trusting God to do His thing. please pray that we'll make His glory known, and that those present will get a good look at what He's up to in africa and want to join in.

-after much blind fiddling and a few test posts, i finally have our family website up and running. by next year i'll likely just be blogging over there, so if you'd like to tag along with us to kenya, pop on in. :)

-and now i am short on time and long on work, so i must be off. happy weekending, my friends!



ps peonies! the peonies have arrived. may is such a friendly time of year.

peonies are my ultimate favorite. i don't even mind the ants that hitch a ride into the house with them. they're just so big and glorious. thank You, Lord, for this epic time of year.

Gorgeousness! I cannot imagine living in a place where flowers like that grow!! I'm trying very hard not to be jealous. :) Our second daughter's wedding is two weeks from tomorrow and we used those same polka-dot boots when we were doing her bridal portraits. She wore them to tromp out through a big field of weeds. Pretty cute!

Boo! Our peonies are long dead already. Argh. Gorgeous pics. Makes me want to get married again (to the same guy) for better pics!

Oh my. You have some seriously gorgeous pictures on this post. Those wedding shots are fabulous and how awesome are those rain boots! They are going to love that memory especially with such fantastic photos of it! LOVE the newish blog... I'm totally going to go snag that theme. How do you like Wordpress? I dearly love it but I never have spent much time with blogger... we never really got a long. ;)
