who was moving away from home
to complete her studies.
It was an amazing year...
one that brought a young American into her life....
and just 9 months later,
these two were married
for better or for worse....
and there has been lots of better
and not too much worse! :-)
When that not so young man celebrated the first day of his retirement last week,
we decided to run away to this Island Getaway and enjoy some time with our old friends.
With views like these you can't help but relax.
There was time to sit in the sun and read...
and to enjoy just sitting on the window seats enjoying each other's company,
talking about the important things in our lives
and lots of time to play games and laugh together.
We also went on an adventure...
up the valley to the beautiful Qualicum Falls(these are the Lower Falls).
There was lots of snow in the parking lot...
and translated into very high water levels.
It was beautiful!
Definitely a great time of enjoying the beautiful outdoors!
Old friendships are the best because we have so much shared history,
so many memories,
so much laughter!
As we sat here at Qualicum Beach we marveled at God's amazing faithfulness
that had brought us safe thus far
and blessed us beyond belief!
