Yesturday I painted my fingernails and toenails hot pink (something I don't usually do...with my fingernails anyways) in an attempt to see something bright and pretty since outside I see only gray and white. This weather is killing me...I need sun plain and simple. I got really excited at Meijer today when I saw flowers. Mark's response was "You really need it to be summer don't you?" And it's so true. I can hardly even bring myself to wear a coat anymore because I am sick and tired of being bundled up...so please spring come quick!
Anyways, life has been good. We went to Roanoke which was a great getaway and a very encouraging trip. We came home and had about a week of normal life before I got very sick. I felt like I was the sickest I had even been but it is possible that I feel that way every time I get sick. But it passed quickly and I am feeling great now. I went to Chicago for a weekend. It was supposed to be Mark and I and two other couples but after a crazy string of events I went with Erica and one other couple. It was a great trip and I had lots of fun. We shopped, ate, watched movies and read which in Jenny world is the perfect trip. It was good to be away with another girl and just be girls. I did though miss Mark considering it was our first nights apart since we got married. Journey is going good it would be better if we could quit getting snow storms on Saturday nights. But God is bigger than snow storms so we move on and press forward.
We started our small group of "young marrieds" last week. It was a lot of fun. Im excited to connect with people in our life stage, to be encouraged by those going through the same life things as we are and to get advice from those who have been there and done that.
Mark is doing well as a full time pastor. It has been an adjustment for us but only for the better :)
But for now Im just hoping for sunshine...and a warm breeze! But until then I will just keep painting my nails and doing other things that will at least create a delusion of the possibility that maybe I will look out the window and see green grass and flowers again. Although right now it seems impossible that I will ever again see nature alive and blooming outside....
Why Michigan again?
