Fall Advance

Eric calls the youth retreats "advances" because we know that God will advance our relationship with Him and each other when we get away from it all for a weekend. We went to McCray farm last weekend for our "Fall Advance"- what an incredible place. We had perfect weather and God did some amazing things in the lives of our youth. It would not have been such a great weekend if it were not for our wonderful VOLUNTEERS! Our youth volunteers are excellent leaders and crazy game players. You wouldn't believe some of the things these volunteers did to get a laugh out of these students. We are so thankful for their dedication and service to these students. Enjoy a few pics from the weekend. :)

Pfunky Griddle Nashville, TN

Hey all you Nashville fans. Next time your in the area stop by and visit the Pfunky Griddle! It's a family style breakfast joint that's all you can eat! The griddle is built into the table and you make your own breakfast. They have lots of scrumptious breakfast items to choose from but, my personal favorites were the wheat pancake batter and the potato cakes! To die for. The atmosphere is so charming and is a huge part of the experience. I give it 2 thumbs way way up!

Add whatever topping to the pancakes you like!

Can you feel the excitement?

Why my Husband is so cool

It's pretty easy for me to brag about how awesome my husband is so be warned- it's coming. First of all, I married him so it goes with out saying I think hes the best anyway. We have been married a little over 3 years now and I find new things I love about him as time goes on. He is one of the most motivated persons I know. Eric is what I call a "go getter" in every sense of the phrase. I'll give you a few examples.

In high school Eric decided to teach himself how to play guitar. From there he learned how to play base, electric, acoustic, and drums. Lately he's been talking about the banjo and I believe he'll learn how to play it.

In college Eric just barely dabbled in photography, learning small bits of things here and there. The first year we were married he decided to start saving for a nice camera. With some help from my Dad's old equipment and many months of diligent saving, Eric purchased his first Nikon D80. Since that first year of marriage his talent has increased tenfold. He has managed to start his own photography business and now has a Nikon D700. His talent has afforded him the upgrades! He has inspired my creative photography gene as well! This pic is one I took at one of our more recent weddings. You can follow his/my work at http://www.ericleephotography.com/

As you have already read, I fell in love with the strawberry cupcakes at Celebrations Bakery. Eric and I have now both experienced this goodness. From that experience he was inspired to start a blog called "The Local Joint". This blog is awesome. He is featuring a new local businesses each week. By viewing his blog and leaving a comment you will be put into a drawing to win something donated by the featured local joint. Cool Huh? View this week and you could win a Celebrations strawberry cake!!!

Honestly, I could list so many more things about my special husband. He inspires me in so many ways and pushes me to do things I normally wouldn't do. Most importantly, Eric is a wonderful man of God. I am so blessed to watch his authentic walk with the Lord on a daily basis. Think about the people who inspire you and be sure to tell them today.

Love you Babe.
