Christmas in the USA (part 2).

I sure do love the people God has placed all around me. From family to friends, to all the in-between…you guys add so much laughter to life & I’m thankful for each & every one of you.

These women in the below few photos? They’re my homegroup girls: my best friends from college & our fearless leader, Kim. As soon as I landed in the states, we all went to dinner at Kim’s. We love this woman & the wisdom she’s shared with us over the past 5 years. Also, Caroline is clutch for bringing her selfie stick.

Breakfast with my dad – it’s a tradition & it’s a favorite.

Loved being in town for Grace Fellowship’s Christmas service!

The day I wore this outfit I’m pretty sure the people at the Apple store put “grey shirt crazy pants” as the note on my appointment.

Friends that wear plaid together stick together.My beautiful mom treated me to a spa day on Christmas Eve – so relaxing!Torchy’s Tacos. Need I say more?
I spent Christmas Eve with this fun Burnett crew, my mom, & Wes. Lisa made Javanese dinner (one of my favorites) & we prayed, sang, & laughed quite a bit.
I’ve loved these girls for over a decade. Time is flying!Javanese dinner. ❤
Christmas morning outside at my mom’s house (basically in the middle of the woods)! It’s quite beautiful out there. We went & watched Star Wars on Christmas Day (Happy Birthday Jesus!) with all of the family & facetimed Ryan & Jessie in Greece while we were waiting to go into the theater. It was great getting to see their faces for a second & share with all of the family. Also, isn’t my Grampy adorable in his Texas A&M hat?
I know I mentioned it in my last post, but Christmas lights are simply lovely. This house had tons of hanging snowflakes!On Christmas night, Alanna & I lost 3 games of marbles in a row…but hey, in Steve Harvey’s book – we’re Champions. 😉 Too soon?

Life may be crazy sometimes & it might not always look like I would have planned, but I’m unbelievably grateful for the journey & the Lord’s faithfulness in every step.

Merry Christmas friends. May your hearts & minds be focused on Christ & the joy of His coming!
