June and July

The last few months have been very busy for us but also exciting! At the end of June I fulfilled one of my dreams of seeing Sting in concert. He performed with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and together they put on an Amazing show!! Although I can't remember the last time he performed nearby, Pete and I had numerous discussions about how we didn't need to spend "that kind of money" to see Sting and came to the conclusion that we shouldn't go. WELL, a few days before the show a friend of mine found out she couldn't go so she offered me her tickets for about 1/3 of the original price. Needless to say I was super excited we didn't already have plans so I jumped at the opportunity to go! Pete was such a good sport about going with me since I know it's not really his style of music! (See pics below)
July began with our wonderful beach vacation to Gulf Shores (lots of pics in the blog below). What a great way to start out the month! The following weekend we went to Yazoo City and
Indianola to visit several family and friends. Lots of people had not even met Madilyn yet so it was a very busy weekend!

The next week was my birthday and Pete & I took an over night trip to NOLA to see Michael Buble' in concert. It was my 2nd show but it was another great one! Pete actually got us a room @ Le Pavillion which is where we stayed on our wedding night. What a sweetie!! The next morning we had Cafe Du Monde and walked around downtown so I could shoot some pics. The rest of my day off was spent at home with Madilyn so it was perfect!!
Last weekend was our FIVE year anniversary! We had a nice dinner out and after we put Madilyn to bed we enjoyed a movie and desserts I made for us. A perfect way to celebrate! I truly feel that God picked the perfect man for me. I'm so grateful he's my best friend, husband and father of my child. I look forward to many many more years together!!
