new york new york

it FINALLY happened. justin and i had our very first grown up trip (ever.) and it was AMAZING. thank you so much to each of you who prayed over this trip. for justin's health, for the weather, hurricane damage, travel and the boys. we had 5 days of fun and loved every minute. we didn't plan much and just did WHATEVER WE WANTED! justin felt great almost the whole time. it was actually a blessing to need to take things slow. we were able to soak up so much and we didn't return exhausted. trip highlights: saw WICKED (incredible), ate delicious pizza, shopped in soho, ate at nobu (omg), got treats from magnolia bakery, rode the subway (fail), went to FAO, had frozen hot chocolate at serendipity, ate in little italy, got harassed in china town, hung out in times sqaure and visited central park. we celebrated justin's 30th birthday AND our 5 year wedding anniversary. we reflected on the past 9 years we have been together and feel nothing but grateful. justin and i never know how many days we have left together. we don't know how many "good" days lie ahead and how many "bad" days will try and drag us down. but we do know that we have each other and our boys and we are wrapped tightly in a blanket of love and redemption provided by our savior. and that it all we need.
thanks again for the prayers and for those who loved on the boys. they were so loved on by my aunt & meme and our super crazy awesome friends.
