Many Praises

I want to start off by thanking the lovely Mrs. Doss at VanDoss for making my beautiful blog banner. She also gave me step-by-step instructions on how to start my blog. She has been such a big help as I have started my blog. Dana is a wonderful friend and is also a fabulous photographer! She was my wedding photographer, so all of the beautiful wedding  pictures you will see were all her! You should check out her blog as well as her photography blog. Thanks so much for all of your help Dana! I LOVE the banner!

One of those beautiful wedding pictures!
I have a couple of praises today!
1. We're leaving for the beach tomorrow! We are so thankful that Daniel's parents live right across the road from the beach in St. Augustine. We enjoy having a big family get-together there every 4th of July. We are also thankful that Daniel's brother's family lives in Statesboro, a nice half-way point for us to stay the night at tomorrow. We love spending time with everyone, and it will be great to have another beach vacation!

The family in St. Augustine last year!
2. I continue to get interviews for jobs. I have already had two with different places, and I have another one next Friday. I am very hopeful that sometime in the month of July I will get a job! Please continue to pray for me and that Daniel and I will have patience as we wait on this. I know God has great plans for me for a job, we will just have to wait!

I will continue packing for the trip, looking for jobs, and working on this blog for now! Oh, and getting all patriotic for July 4th!!! Thanks for reading!

My Very First Blog Post!

Hey there! I've officially been married for one month, and I still have no job. So, I decided I needed a new hobby, and here it is! I've been a secret blog follower since last fall, and I have recently begun reading several blogs on a daily basis. So, I decided I should blog too. You might enjoy what I have to say as much as I enjoy what you blog about!

Last summer my friend(Savannah)'s, family was going through an adoption, and my mom and I began following her mom's blog- Everything Beautiful -so that we could keep up with it. I love her blog and have followed it ever since! They are about to adopt another little boy, so I encourage you to go check her blog out! I enjoy following Savannah's blog, too. We both got married in May and had fun planning our weddings together while in school.

Savannah is doing a little give-away, and I would like to tell you about it! Their family has recently become one of the featured families @ Wild Olive Tees (click for the link).
If you go to this website, you can choose from eleven different tees, use the family code, Ankerich0611, and their family will get credit for that tee. They are taking all of the money they raise to help their family travel to China for sweet Will. (Please note: the family code will not reduce the prices of the tee, but will give them credit for your purchase. If they sell up to 49 tees, they get $7.50 per shirt, and if the sell 50 or more, they get $10.00 per shirt!)
