Catching Up!

Wow! So many months have flown by since I started this blog! Where are they all going? After talking to a close friend I realized yesterday that I really want to try to keep up with this blog more. Living away from my family can be hard, and sometimes I find myself wondering if they even know me anymore. This is such a good way to express the small stuff in life. So, on behalf of my new endeavor to actually keep a blog... here's to catching up! Also, do you like my new haircut? :)

Here are some recent events!


I LOVE Rook! David recently taught me to play and I have been practicing for at least a month so that I can beat his family during vacation! It's been such a blast.

Open Door Church Worship Conference!

David was invited to speak at Open Door Church in Suffolk, VA for a worship conference last weekend! You can hear his sermon on this web site:
I was so blessed by the entire church family, and David did an amazing job conveying a message of authenticity amongst believers. I can't believe I am married to such an amazing man of God!

While we were in Suffolk I hopped over to VA beach to visit my friend Jess who is pregnant with her first baby! We giggled and caught up for hours and it was so amazing to see her. She is literally glowing with excitement, and I can't wait to meet her little girl when she arrives! I'm still kicking myself for forgetting to take a picture of her and her growing belly! Here is a picture of the view from her new apartment though... it is literally breathtaking! Right on the Ocean complete with swimming pool and tennis courts! Yeah... I think we'll have to visit there for longer next time! :)

I am somewhat obsessed with sunsets, and on the way home from the conference we witnessed one of the most beautiful ones I have seen. We both sat amazed while I snapped way too many pictures. I mean, seriously though... wouldn't you? It's really such a shame though... the picture doesn't even come close to doing it justice.

Some other random recent events:

I just watched Sleepless in Seattle for the first time. It was so incredibly romantic in such a 90's sort of way. I loved it. David told me he would fall asleep but I'm pretty sure he got into it more than I did.

We also wrapped up the final season of 24, which was our all-time favorite show. Jack Bauer never let us down, and the show went out with a great bang. We loved it.

That's some good catch up for now! David and I are off to the beach for the week! I'm going to take my computer and try to update with some beach pictures this week! Wait till you see David's new bathing suit. It's completely retro and it makes me laugh, but it looks so good on him! Here's a hint: It sort of matches these:

  1. RACHEL!! PERFECT! I love, love, love this post! Thank you for taking time to fill us in on the every day life of Rachel M. I LOVE your haircut! It seems so dark! Almost black. Beautiful!

    I liked Sleepless, too. "You've got Mail" was another fav. Have you seen "Leap Year"? Cute movie...David would probably like that one! (hee hee)

    Got to listen to David's sermon...thanks for posting the link.
    Okay, talk to you soon, Sweetie! Thanks again!!

    p.s. and thanks for praying for Uncle Paul and Me. We appreciate it very much.
