As you know, last week was just plain overwhelming. Overwhelming in a hard way in the sense that Kevin almost lost his life, but overwhelming in a great way seeing our family/friends/YOU come around us in an epic way. No matter how you slice it though, we were emotionally and physically drained. Thankfully, my family was headed to their annual beach vacation in Santa Cruz, and once we got clearance from the doctors, we were on our way. The last few days have been really special and relaxing (as you can see from my instagram). Walks on the beach, games at night, delicious food, and laughter. Not to mention world cup awesomeness. Guys, I am crazy for any international sporting event, it’s wild! 🙂 But it’s amazing how community and rest feed our souls. And of course, there’s always something about the beach that relaxes and soothes. We’re headed back home now so I can get back to my classes, but are grateful to the Lord for this quick little respite. Our spirits need it:) Happy week friends! And hopefully more Turkey pics to come later this week!
