{Husband's Letters}

Friday, July 26, 2013


Dear Sweet Bride, often times you'll say to me, "Patience, little grasshopper." Thank you for reminding me to slow down and trust that everything happens in it's own time. Dear Harvest House Squirrel, lately you have enjoyed feasting on our chicken feed and vegetables. You're lucky I'm a terrible shot. Dear Discontent, you creep up when I lack gratitude, try to control my circumstances, and think only of myself. Life is so much more free when I leave no room for you. Dear Em, just when I thought it wouldn't be possible to go backpacking with the guys you gave me your air miles so I could fly to Colorado. I love how you encourage me to not pass up once-in-a-lifetime guy trips. Thank you!

Happy Friday, brave ones! What are your plans this weekend? Fist pumps for older brothers who come to visit from Florida!

Yeah, husband's letters were missed! Happy about your blogging comeback, Tim :) Enjoy your trip to Colorado. I consider it my home state and love everything about it. Where are you going to be backpacking?

This weekend will be spent celebrating with friends and enjoying the heat wave before the rain returns next week.
Happy weekend!

She gave you airline miles! I love that.

You are blessed and she will be blessed ten-fold! What a beautiful team you guys make. :]

Have fun in Colorado! (you can listen to Colorado Girl by Townes Van Zandt in honor of Emily while you're gone. Or the both of you can just listen to it right now. Because it's just. that. awesome. :D )

This weekend I will be spending time with my beautiful mother before she flies off to Reno. Also, I will be practicing for a gig I have at a Community Garden this Sunday. Woohoo for doing the things that you love & that make you feel good!! Man, oh man.

With hugs and gratitude,
Annie

Tim!
Congrats on traveling to Colorado!
Twinner and I are in a luxury Lincoln log cabin (even smaller than our studio apartment) on our way cross country to see you and Em. We started our weekend camping in Great Basin National Park. Which was freaking awesome*! Tomorrow we go fly fishing near Escalante, Utah. Can you beleive it? You might just be our inspiration to get a few casts under our belts before going to the river with you and Em. T-minus 5 states and counting!
Love, Hillie and Sarah

Timmy!!! You. Are. The. Cooooolest. This letter just blew my mind. I'm so encouraged by your honesty. I can't wait to hear about your travels & hikes. The Lord is so amazing to provide perspective & time away from home to gain clarity on life. Thankful for you brother.
