Celebrating 50 Years

 After we wrapped up our time in the Chicago area, we drove down to Asheville, NC to spend 3 days with my family and celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. A lot of what we planned for those days was a surprise to them, and it was a really special time together. Their legacy of faith and love for each other is inspiring to all of us, and we're so thankful we could celebrate all in person together!

We invited a professional photographer to come and do a photo shoot. It was really special to have all of these great pictures taken of our family. It was the first time we were all together (with all of the grandkids)!
