Wait....I was supposed to go SOUTH?!?

Yes, this was what I said on the phone with Meghann (best friend) for over two hours of missed exits and traveling in the wrong direction on my way back from hanging out with her in Raleigh (though I now know where Henderson is). It took me 4 1/2 hours to get back. I have no idea what happened to me since I had no problem whatsoever getting there.

Anyway, Josh gave me the sweetest gift of taking care of Isaiah for a few days while I hung out with Meghann for her birthday. I had never left him (Isaiah) overnight before. I admit that there were a few tears on the drive up, but it was so good to get a break. We literally wined and dined at Rockin' Robin, The Grape and The Cheesecake Factory, and when we weren't eating we were chatting about all of our upcoming life decisions and lingering things on our hearts, reading (I finally started Don't Waste Your Life...two years of good intentions preceding), watching a movie, shopping, analyzing relationships....all girl stuff. And, it turns out, both of my boys were alive and happy when I got back.

Now, I'm back and hitting the ground running with Isaiah's first birthday already here.


My heart hurts a little every time I type that, but what an amazing year God has given us with this little guy. What a treasure he is, unique in so many ways and custom made by the Creator for our little family.

I'm sure I'll write more about that later....
