This week Mark and Lauren visited, and it was amazing to fill up our time with Princeton, Jersey, and NYC. I've talked about them before, and we just love them. Excited for where God is leading them to Denver, but not looking forward to another goodbye cry. Trying my best to be thankful for this week, believing it was enough, our time together, it was so fun. Jersey Shore (beach walks, sting ray, maybe sunburns, spotting Situation, Deena & Sam), Princeton favorites (croissants, art museum, record store, Hoagie Haven), and NYC (Museum of Natural History, yummy Thai, walking Brooklyn Bridge).
I'm not even going to go into it. It requires too much energy and emotion to discuss preparing to move from New Jersey. In a week, we will have moved back to Indiana. Absolutely bittersweet, not ready to say goodbye to awesome friends, but blessed to have a few months with family.
It's good and it's hard and it's worth it. We wouldn't change where we've been. We can't imagine not moving forward, feeling encouraged and affirmed where God is leading. For not just us, but for Mark and Lauren and our neighbors, for our families, I pray and hope for you too.
