Wonderful Weekend Whirlwind

It was quite the weekend for Josh and I. On Friday we went to Little Rock for an interview with a church. I can't share too many details at this point but we had a good time! Then on Saturday Josh and I, along with my parents and sister decided to head up to Mount Magazine to check out the wedding site.

Here's a picture of where the wedding ceremony will be.

After we looked around The Lodge we ate lunch at the restaurant there. It was really yummy!



Sunday was the crazy part of the weekend. It was Josh's Ordination Day.


I was so fortunate to have my parents and sister along with some of my best friends there for the big day.

Shannon, Laurie, and Kelly came down for the event along with Jason, Katie, and Zach!
Josh preached in the morning then we all went to lunch before the ordination service that afternoon.

Zach was a highlight of my day! He's so cute! I just love him!

Overall it was a great day! Josh and I were both exhausted when it was all over. I'm so proud of Josh! He was great all weekend and after yesterday its obvious he'll make a great pastor!

Mount Magazine-wow! I hear that new lodge is beautiful. I saw Suzanne on Saturday at our cousin's wedding shower and we talked about your engagement. She's very excited, but I'm sure you already knew that!

I have been to Mt. Magazine and it is beautiful, and the restaurant is good, too. What a beautiful place to get married! Congratulations on Josh's ordination!

Hillary, you and Josh make such a handsome couple! You will both be a blessing to any church that God calls you to. We will pray for that clear calling and that God leads you right where He can use you!
