My Joy Journey

"Be joyful always, pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5:16

I've created this blog to be an honest look into my life, my family, my blessings and my struggles as I continue to seek to find the joy that He promises.

Beach and Birthdays!

Last month, we had a great end of summer vacation with my parents at Ocean Isle Beach, NC. It was great! We had the pleasure of celebrating Anne Botts' 3rd birthday while we were there which was definitely the highlight of the week! Her birthday started out with a yummy bday breakfast, courtesy of Pillsbury :), and she blew out her first candle of the day with princess balloons to boot! When I walked in her room that morning, she said, "Mommy, I turned number 3 in my crib all by myself!" We then drove to Southport, where we took the ferry over to the Ft. Fisher acquarium. We had lots of fun and saw all kind of neat sea creatures. We ended the day with a pizza party and cake. I've included pictures from the trip and her birthday so enjoy them below!
