Another Great Day

Me and Marcel spent a day at the beach (instead of rainy Forest Grove) to celebrate our 2nd anniversary! It turned out to be a longer day than expected because I tried to get there on a wrong highway. That's what Marcel gets for making me drive! It was a great last day together before he returned home for the summer. I'm extremely grateful for the relationship we've built over the past 24 months. We both started with some pretty pessimistic views of where it would go, which illustrates to us that God had a better plan for us than we could have ever planned ourselves. We are reminded daily that He is still ultimately in control of our relationship and know that when we allow Him to write the next chapter of our story, we are blessed and couldn't have done it better if we tried!

I love you, Marcel Drew!

Someone asked to take our picture and we gladly accepted.
Beautiful Cannon Beach, Oregon.

One of many self-portraits we've collected over the last 2 years!

It's Official!

I have a college degree! I made it through 4 years of college and ended on the best semester of them all. I just have to say thank you to my family and friends for their love and support during all the challenges I've faced and the fun I've had! Now for some pictures...

Me and my college roommates proud of our diplomas!

Striped of the ugly gowns to show our pretty dresses!

Next year it will be his turn, but for now my boyfriend couldn't be more proud :)

Me and my sister, Emily...Hannah couldn't be there in person but she was in spirit, as I was in Kansas for her high school graduation the week before.
