Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

Matt and Christin's wedding

This past weekend my older brother Matt married the love of his life, Christin. It was a beautiful wedding filled with lots of love and laughter. Christin was drop dead gorgeous and my brother Matt looked pretty handsome as well. Christoph (my oldest brother), myself, and Austin were all in the wedding. So were Matt and Christin's 2 bulldogs, Deliah and Diesel. Deliah was a bridesmaid and really did do all the activities with the bridesmaids. It was hilarious. The weekend was very busy and a little bit of a logistical nightmare with 2 small boys and needing to be at so many different places but I was so thankful to be a part of it. (Next wedding, we are leaving the boys at home :) Austin stayed with David's sister and brother in law along with his parents. I think everyone would have had a great weekend except Austin got pretty sick on Saturday and decided to not sleep but 4 hours that night. He then shared his cold with everyone else. Miller now has the cold as well and really doesn't feel well. (It has been a LONG week with 2 sick boys). David, Miller and I stayed with my best friend and roommate from college. Kacee and Joe Pat were SO wonderful to us. They helped tons with Miller and were so understanding of the crazy schedule we were on. We only wish we could have visited more with their little family. We really do owe the Lucas's and McGuigan's a HUGE thank you for helping. We could not have done the weekend without you.

Austin stopped at the top of the stairs and wouldn't go any farther and then saw his daddy and took off running.

They are married!!!
Congrats Matt and Christin on your marriage. David and I are so excited for you and can't wait to make so many memories together. Love you and enjoy your honeymoon.

Is that Belle Meade Plantation? Maybe one of my favorite spots in Nashville. I sort of wish we'd gotten married there. Great pics, Brittany! The one of Austin running toward his dad is close to the cutest thing I've ever seen. The boys are precious. So sorry they got sick!
