Well it sure has been a while! I can’t believe it’s almost been 2 months since our last post. Yea…sorry about that. We haven’t done a very good job of keeping you updated. It’s crazy to think that the DAY AFTER my last post, I had a job interview, got hired, and started working 3 days later. That just goes to show the faithfulness of our Lord!
Needless to say, we’ve been pretty busy this last month and a half! It definitely took me a few weeks to get used to the demands of a full-time job. I’m officially the “Customer Accounts Manager” at Campus Quilt Co–a locally owned t-shirt quilt company. I have a lot of customer service-type tasks, as well as the task of charging the final balances on the quilts and shipping them out of our facility. Overall, I really like it! Every day is different–which is nice. Every time I think about it, I am in awe of how God has worked out His purpose and our good through the provision of this job…and all in His sovereign time.
Brian is really enjoying his job as well, along with his classes of course! With both working as much as necessary, it has been quite the adjustment, but we have learned to appreciate the time that we do have together a little more. We recently drove north to a farm in Indiana to pick apples and a pumpkin! That was such a blast! We still have apples that we are trying to figure out what to do with…as well as an awesome pumpkin that has a lovely home just outside our front door. Fall here is nothing short of glorious. It has definitely heightened our awareness of our creative Designer. There have been many days when simply driving around town is just breathtaking! The trees are the most vibrant yellows and oranges and golds and reds. Florida ain’t got nothin’ on this!
Unfortunately, every season comes to a close…and we can feel that winter is just around the corner. I, especially, am a little nervous about this, simply because I have no clue how to drive on icy roads. That’ll be interesting. We are excited for the holidays that are just around the corner and the opportunity that we have to celebrate as our small family of two. Not to mention the possibility of both of our families coming to Louisville the week after Christmas–that would just be the icing on the cake!
Well…its probably about time I get some sleep. Early morning for church tomorrow–and this whole work thing has made me even lamer than I used to be as far as staying up late is concerned 😉
Here are some pictures from our Fall:
As always, we appreciate your prayers and love!
