As always, we had the most wonderful visit to Arizona to see my parents. Our days were filled with all sorts of special activities- from seeing family and friends, eating at our favorite restaurants, celebrating our anniversary, celebrating two holidays!

As I sat in church on Sunday, I thought about how two years ago, fall was my own personal hell. One year ago, I was in total newborn fog. (some may contend that I am still there…but I digress..)
