Oh my goodness!! I cannot believe we haven't posted since SEPTEMBER!!! Sorry about that, friends.
Well, JD and I have been quite busy over the past two months. We've spent two weeks in Hawaii and three weeks in Israel since the last time we posted. A lot of people have asked us, "Are y'all working in the mission field? Vacation? Where are these opportunities coming from?" The answer to the question is none of the above.
JD's job requires him to travel to some pretty cool places all over the world... and because I have an absolutely fantastic husband that loves and enjoys his wife, he lets me travel along with him. He can basically chose how many trips we go on and his co-workers have been so nice to offer him mainly the ones where I can go with him. To say the least, we're trying to live it up as much as possible and travel while we can!! We have both always had a passion to travel, and we are freely given the chance to travel together... how amazing is that? It is truly by the sweet grace of God that we are able to do so. He has certainly engulfed us in His protective hands - you'll hear more about that in the near future.
My main job is to take photos, journal about our adventures and make sure our trips run smoothly (sometimes, this allows for some lovely laying-out time). As it's been with our travel schedule, I unpack our bags, do laundry and repack them in the minimum of two weeks spent at home in between our trips. We are inconceivably blessed (if you're thinking of The Princess Bride, "inconceivable" is used in the correct context here).
We are thrilled to share our adventures with everyone. I will try to post as often as possible. Because of the security procedures in Israel, I was unable to take my computer so we're pretty far behind on our content, but we will try our best to keep everyone in the know!
Also, please note that we will post photos on Facebook and describe them briefly but you will only get full exposure of our trips on our blog. We've saved a lot of funny stories and such only for the eyes of our readers; therefore, don't just rely on Facebook for the whole story.
In the meantime, here are a few of our favorite photos from the trips we've been on. I decided not to add many photos of us below because you will be seeing lots of them in the upcoming weeks. :)
