Donald Duck

Otherwise known as my Brother, when I was younger.
He did the best impression of Donald Duck and it was hilarious
watching his face scrunch up and his voice change in order to perfectly fit the part.

There is nothing quite like a Brother.
Nothing quite like my Brother.
He is laughter in an akward moment.
He is silence on the other end of the phone.
He is a history book and a good cup of coffee.
He is mashed potatoes and gravy kind of comfort.
And a good tune on a long drive with a spit cup in the holder.

He is a good man and good ole boy.
He is words from the Bible when I'm unable to speak.
And a hankerchief for falling tears.
He is an elementary hand clap.
And a hand to dance with on your wedding day.
He is a father that teaches.
A husband that loves.
A son that keeps accountable.
And he is the only male friend my husband is okay with.
He is my Brother.

Road Trip to NC

 We took a trip to Asheville, NC to see
America's Largest house....Biltmore Estate. 
 It is George Vanderbilt's 250-room French château. 

So of course we had to tour the house...learn the histroy.
But this was the incredible view from the back courtyard

We took a stroll over the mountains and thru the woods to visit the winery...

And even though i felt like a tourist,
it was another fun and spontaneous day with J.

No, my husband is not the romantic.
 He is however thoughtful and 
I will take that any day over Romantic.  
The man hears me.
He listens - even when I think he doesn't.
And he acts!
He hears me play Hillsong everyday.
He sings along to Hillsong.
We worship together to Hillsong.
We want to BE Hillsong..(haha) 
So on this lovely-lovey-dovey holiday,
He showed HUGE amounts of love by purchasing
us tickets to hear Hillsong in Atlanta,GA.

  He won the AWE award for sure...

"Hope is faith holding out its hand in the dark."

Sometimes I need a reminder...
