the 4th

Happy Independence Day!

I hope all of you lovelies had a wonderful day. For me, today was bittersweet. I spent time with my husband, sister and nephew and we had quite the lazy day. We would have liked to head out to a ballgame or even to The Battery to watch the firework show. However, Lauren needed to pack...because she is moving back to Louisiana.

Last week she told Keith and I that she was lonely in SC and she just wanted to go back home. This took us completely by surprise. We tried everything we could to talk to her and really find out what was going on. We failed at that, and she told us that there was nothing we could do to change her mind.

They left us 2 hours ago.

It's hard to think that we won't get to watch Joseph grow up, or play with him, or rock him to sleep. The next time we will seem him is for Christmas. While we know everything happens for a reason, we feel like Lauren made the wrong decision.

On a positive note, I think Keith and I will really benefit from being alone in our home. Lau and Joe moved in only 1 month after we were married so we never really got to be true newlyweds. We loved having them here, but we also are looking forward to the alone time we will get to have.

Here are some pictures of this weekend of my sis and sweet baby Joe. Please pray that they will have a safe trip back to Louisiana and that God will open the right doors for them in LA.

Oh, I'm so sorry that your sister decided to leave South Carolina...it doesn't seem that she was there for very long? I've been in NY for a year and a half now and still sometimes have lonely days, it's just part of life, I think. I'm wishing Lau and Joe a safe trip home, and I'm hoping that you and your hubby enjoy your time together!
