Our week...

As everyone already knows...we've had terrible storms here in the south. My heart goes out to all of those affected by the tornadoes. The pictures and video literally just make my stomach hurt. So many lives lost....just heartbreaking. I'm lifting all of those families up in prayer.

Thanks to all who have been praying for my sister, Joy. She had surgery yesterday and everything went very well. She went home today and is now starting the recovery process. We're beyond thankful that the results came back benign. Praise the Lord!!

I have exciting news...I have a new nephew!! Luke Everette McGill was born today!! We went to the hospital tonight to meet him. I didn't have to share him with anyone and could hold him the entire time - since we were the only ones there. :) I wanted to bring him home with me but the new parents seemed a little attached to their baby boy. He is so sweet...perfect in every way.

Amelia and I watched the royal wedding today. I've actually watched it three times and cried every time! Hormones? Maybe. I just love that she was a "commoner" and is now a princess. I taught Amelia to say "princess" today...she sounds so cute. :)

Kate looked beautiful. Like a true princess. I loved her dress.

I vaguely remember having a waist that small at my wedding.

I thought it was so sweet when she finally made it to the end of that insanely long aisle and William saw her for the first time. He looked at her and said, "you look beautiful." Awwwwwww.

Another favorite moment was their kiss on the balcony. When he looked at her and said, "one more" and kissed her for the second time - he seemed to blush! I just think they're a beautiful couple. And how funny is the little flower girl in the corner of this picture!?? HAHA! She was over the noise!

This is the first weekend in a long time that we've had no plans. I'm looking forward to it. Alex is going fishing and Amelia and I are going to run errands and take dinner to Aunt Joy.

No matter your plans, I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Love to all,

Happy, happy, joy Joy!! So glad she's doing well.

I didn't mean to watch the wedding live, but Max was up (my early riser), and he didn't want to go back to sleep... so watch we did. Oh my, Kate is just stunning! And the dress.... swoon.

I'm watching the wedding now! I had to work Friday, so I set it to record! It's literally every girl's fairytale come true!

Congrats on your sweet little nephew! They are such a blessing!!
