A Sweet Friend Visits

My sweet friend Ruthie came to visit all the way from California last week! I was so excited and happy that we were able to spend time together. We had some great chats, lots of coffee, and even packed up some boxes together for our upcoming move. She is a sweet friend and a huge blessing in my life! Thanks for coming Ruthie, love you!

Weekend in North Carolina

We had a lovely short vacation with Mark and Sherry last weekend. We are so blessed to live close to so many beautiful areas. Mark and Sherry booked a cabin for a few days and invited us to come with them for some of the time. We enjoyed a beautiful hike, delicious steaks, and some fun games together.

Randy and I took a little date night to the opening Cabela's in Greenville, where he built the rock feature back in the fall. It was so special getting to see it completely finished. I felt like we were at an art show and this was Randy's masterpiece on display. I'm so proud of Randy and all his hard work! It truly paid off! If you're ever in the Greenville area, stop by and enjoy this mountain, completely made by the hands and hard work of a few men, my husband included. :) OK sorry for the happy/proud wife talk. ;)
Randy and his crew just finished a mountain almost identical to this one in Newark, Delaware in February, and they will be starting another one in Portland, Oregon at the end of this month.

The Perk Beans

It's no secret Randy and I and the majority of our family absolutely LOVES coffee. Good coffee.
 So you can imagine our excitement when my brother Kenan learned the art and science of importing and roasting coffee himself. 
He roasted some with us at Christmas time, and oh, what a fascinating process!! Can you believe that it actually smells horrible during the roasting? Yep. 
Recently, Kenan and his sweet wife Brittney have expanded their coffee roasting skills and have started selling it locally and online! 
 Check out their Etsy shop to order some fresh, organic coffee for yourself. I've already had quite a bit of it, and I love it!
You can also find them on Facebook

More from Washington

The pictures tell the story, but oh, what a fun weekend it was.
Randy and I are home in Greenville for the next few weeks, and then we will be going to the Portland, Oregon area for the next job, or at least that's the plan. Ha. Plans are very tentative these days, but we try to roll with it and have fun however it turns out!
