Made in Oregon

In June we went to visit our wonderful friends Josh and Laurel Eddleman in Portland, Oregon. Portland is a beautiful city and feels a little like a really, really huge Fayetteville. We loved how eco-friendly everyone was and all the fun outdoor activities they have. Overall, it was a blast to catch up with good friends and get a wonderful picture of their ministry on the Northwest coast!

It rained almost everyday, so this was my Portland wardrobe that I borrowed from Laurel :)

We went to the Rose Garden and even though it was raining, it was gorgeous!

After dinner they wrapped our leftovers in tin foil--in animal shapes! Mine was a swan :)

Let the Bicycle riding commence!
Hmmmm... this is just an overall interesting picture...

Then the boys bought matching hoodies, hahaha!

New Favorite Drink: Riviera Maya

So for our one year anniversary Garland's parents sent us on a trip to Cancun, Mexico (Thanks John and Beth!!). We went with two of our favorite people, Derek and Alexia Necessary. It was so incredible! We went to the all-inclusive resort Cancun Royal and it was stunning. I could not have imagined a more beautiful beach, impeccable service, mouth watering food, luxurious room (hot tub in every suite), and an unbelievable price. I would go back every year if Garland would let me!

Champagne upon arrival, always a good sign!

Weddings, weddings, weddings...

This spring was wedding central in my world! Three of my dearest friends gave me the honor to stand beside them while they married their best friends. I wouldn't have missed it for the world. Love y'all!
