the end of MAY

Last week we took  PB&J sandwiches & cold water to some homeless people in St. Augustine. It was something so simple I felt God was calling us to but it's something we never do!

It was a quick trip to Alabama for Chris & Chloe Wood's wedding, but it was so worth it! We even stayed in "Hoover, AL".

We are in much need of monthly supporters! If you are interested in partnering with us monthly, please let us know! God has been so faithful already so we are trusting Him to continue to provide for our needs!

Please pray along with us as our friend in Oz checks out a home for us this week! It's a great deal and would allow us to live with our friends, Jay & Tara Heller. This would greatly help living expenses!!

We'll be away for about 2 weeks in the keys spending sometime with Jeremy's best friends & their wives. We've looked forward to this trip for awhile now, as we all live in different states. Thanks Carrier Family for letting us stay in your home there!!

Only in JAX

Only in Jacksonville do you see these sort of vehicles....
don't think this beast would pass PA state inspection!

Tomorrow we head to Birmingham, AL for a dear friend of Jeremy's wedding!

TORNADO {destruction}

While we were in Georgia, we visited an area that was hit by one of the many tornados last month.
you can see the destruction on the left & then the green trees on the right were nothing was touched

a house or boat house that was now in pieces in the water!

Our trip south started in the Northern Mountains of Georgia with Jeremy's parents. Their friends have a beautiful cabin overlooking the Smoky Mountains that we were blessed to stay in. The temperatures were cool, just cold enough for a fire! We spent much time catching up with them, and enjoying God's beautiful creation.

Since I(Ashlee) do most of the blogging, I'm going to take the liberty to share this awesome picture with you.......
Jeremy tried to use the excuse that he didn't have any workout shorts to get out of working out with me.... well I had an extra pair!!!

a packing MESS!

We are currently in Florida but this mess awaits us in our old dinning room! We are completely moved out of the house otherwise. Our plan is to take 8 bags so as you can see we will need to do some re-evaluating & then re-packing of what is actually going to make the cut.

& the TRAVELS begin!

Tomorrow morning we fly from Philly to Atlanta where we will spend some time with Jeremy's parents in the mountains of Georgia! We're excited to spend time with family & catch up with friends! We'll be in the south a total of 6 weeks! Please pray for our safety as we travel!!!

... & more packing

It's Saturday morning & we are almost all packed up! We have 8 bags total but with our trip to Florida it's challenging to finalize exactly what will fit in our bags. I have a pile of "It's coming to Australia whether I have to wear it all on the plane or not!" I may be over loaded in jewelry when I board the plane just so I can get it back to Oz. We have a lot of stuff that's not making the cut so we'll be leaving it in a bin that's been named "get to Australia sometime." It's sad but also invigorating to get rid of junk & all the stuff that floods our homes. I'm sensing a little parallel between getting rid of the junk in my house & getting rid of the junk in my life! Hmm... God's always at work, hey!

We covet your prayers as we journey to Florida &, Lord willing, raise more support! Please pray for safety & health, as these always seem to be taken for granted until they are in jeopardy. We look forward to spending time & connecting with our friends & family there!!

Intercessory Prayer @ {PINNACLE}

The young adults from our church had a time of intercessory prayer at Pinnacle on Sunday! It was a beautiful morning for breakfast with friends followed by prayer & worship!

Our hearts were burden for our "neighbors" which was the topic discussed at our churches vision meeting last Wednesday! Seems that God is speaking to all of us!!!

Jeremiah Coyne leading us!

... NOT to SHIP

We've decided not to ship our stuff but to instead take extra baggage. It's MUCH cheaper (granted we can't take as much with us) & most importantly, we have peace about it! The first bag packed weighed in at 90 pounds and cracked the face of our scale. OOPS! After taking out 20 pounds we officially have one bagged packed!! Only 7 more to go!

As we were planning our wedding, I (Ashlee, of course) feel in love with a wedding blog called Style Me Pretty. After our wedding, I had intentions of submitting our wedding to be featured on the website. I even wrote the description that was needed back in November. The combination of not really knowing how to submit the large filed photos & feeling a little vain led me to never actually do it. Then a couple months ago Seth Snider, our photographer & friend, emailed me saying he submitted our wedding to Style Me Pretty (hmm... that's a "coincidence"!) and they wanted to feature our wedding but needed the description from us! I was amazed and overly ecstatic over this "coincidence" although that's not what I like to call it! I  think it's a little smile from God... just a reminder that He's involved and cares about even the silliest & smallest things!

It was featured on May 4th so you may need to scroll down!!
