Modern Modesty!

Good Morning!

I am still getting ready to start posting a new blog series, but we're not altogether on it as far as the pictures. Still working on it!

In the meantime I wanted to share with you a guest post I did for my friend Chandra at Momomod! I love her blog- modesty in this day and time can be a challenge! Her blog has lots of great resources and ideas for staying modest, and stylish! I have been a reader for about a year and have been blessed by it! I did this guest interview in December, so I'm a little late at sharing it. I shared it on Facebook already, so many of you may have already read it. Those who haven't, check it out, a follow!

Click here for the interview!

The video that I never posted

I am such a sentimental mess. My middle name is nostalgia.

I found this while going through my Paris videos. We recorded this video to post the week after our wedding. When we got online at our hotel, not only was it going to take over 30 minutes to upload {and we couldn't figure out a better way to do it} and the internet was pretty $$$ insane! {Speaking of the hotel in which we had to pay to use an ironing board. So, if that gives you any idea.} We decided to wait, and my patience ran out after several attempts. I was saddened by the fact I never posted it, so I had to redeem myself.

 So, here you go, 2 years later......

We were so cute. All newly married & stuff.

And yes we did, in fact, pay about $27 for a McChicken and a Cheeseburger.

Chicago, Illinois

Happy Monday!

The beginning of a new week, I love it. Especially this week. Last week we were snowed and iced in and I was sick with the flu. A bad case of it, too. The week before Stephen was sick. Being self-employed, it's not so easy. But atleast you can work from the bed. I got my laptop out one day while I was bed-ridden. I meant to do some advertising, but ended up watching 4 documentaries. Needless to say, I am happy to start a new week with NO snow and ice, and NO sickness!

We visited Stephen's sister and her family in Chicago this past August. After evangelizing for a few years, they settled down in Chicago last summer and are now pastoring a church. We took a quick weekend trip to St. Charles to visit them and thier new church. I thought I'd share a few photos from our trip.

At the beach!

Ben, Tim and Stephen

Ashley and I joined this one. Hanging out on the glamorous side of town, as you can see. =D




All of the family

Church family {at least the ones who hadn't left yet! We stayed and visited for awhile}

Hanging out in the park. Crazy night! =D

Infront of the big ol' macaroni, as my niece Daniella calls it.

View of downtown from Navy Pier.

That's at least the photos that turned out clear....most of them did not turn out that great. I don't know what I ever did without my Rebel!!
