Crazy Schedules!

It’s Monday, and a new work-week has begun. I am excited that not only is this my short week (I get every other Friday off), but it’s also Labor Day weekend. Matt and I have made plans to visit North Carolina! I can’t wait to see family and spend time catching up with them all. Even though we were in NC this past May for my bother-in-law’s wedding, I started planning another trip since we arrived back in Maryland. It looks like this might be our only free weekend until Thanksgiving or maybe even Christmas!

Our schedule is jammed packed right now. I started working for a government contractor in June, and Matt continues to serve in the Coast Guard. His schedule isn’t the normal nine to five, and he has to stand duty every other weekend. So finding time to make long distance trips can be difficult. We also volunteer with the youth group at our Church. This has been such a blessing to both of us. With the new school year just beginning, we are about to switch back full-swing into the youth ministry. I can’t wait to catch up with all the kids, and encourage them throughout this year. Matt and I have also made a commitment to our small group that meets on Wednesday nights. This is also great way for us to stay connected with our church community!
Matt takes on even more by himself. I have to say that I am married to not only the most handsome man, but also the smartest, kindest, and most selfless person I’ve ever met. On top of his already full schedule, he volunteers with the Lexington Park Rescue Squad at least twice a month. Just last week, he also began as the assistant coach to a local high school varsity soccer team. Also, he is taking classes towards a master’s degree in intelligence. I am excited to say that he has maintained an “A” average in his studies so far! I’m so proud of him for his dedication and hard work. I just don’t know how he can juggle it all, but he makes the most of it! He’s always striving to serve others and do his very best. I know I’m biased, but I have the best husband ever! I seem to fall more in love with him every day.
Look at how handsome he is! <3

Well, I could make this entire post about my sweet husband, but I’ll save that for some other time. ;-) For now I’ll leave y’all with warm wishes for a grand week ahead!


  1. your last paragraph "but I’ve got to be the best husband ever! " I thought it was proof that matt said those things about himself.

    1. hahaha, typo! I should fix that one now... :)

    2. OK, it's updated now. No matter how many times I read and re-read it before posting, I can't escape the dreaded typo! Oh well... I'll just blame it on my busy schedule, right?!
