Around Town

Savannah is truly one of the most beautiful places I could imagine living. Part of my Lenten practices the last couple years have included trying to spend time outside everyday… There’s no excuse when daily walks around the city and meet-ups with friends at the park are this beautiful.

I don’t have any pics of my other brother, sister & nephew and it’s a crying shame. But they came too. I am so thankful everyone journeyed far and wide to see this city we love and meet this baby boy. Million Xs and Os to my family. You guys are the best.

Summer

Well shoot, the last 5 months have come and gone without a word here. Even though I didn’t find the time to document it, some serious stuff has happened!

We moved from Boston, MA to Savannah, GA and the lowcountry is treating us with true southern hospitality. Not only did we change locale, we moved in with another family of 3. The Archer family. Our toddlers (Archer and Georgia) are certainly going to be confused about first names, last names, and the state we live in. ;) Robert grew up an hour from Savannah, and he is best friends with some folks who still live here in Savannah. So we were automatically plugged into a very rooted and thriving community. Not only that, we’re several weeks into discussions about starting an intentional Christian community here in Savannah. All good things.

I don’t want to skim over our summertime fun, though. So here is a quick recap.

St. Augustine

Archer and I joined my parents in St. Augustine for vacation. During this time, our little man took his first steps!!! Robert stayed back in Boston to pack and move. I am forever grateful because there is nothing I hate more than packing and moving. (even though I’ve done it 7 times in 3 years)

savannah

We temporarily lived south of savannah with the Archers. It was tight quarters but helped us really hit the ground running and have some motivation to find the perfect place to live. And we really did find the perfect place to rent for this first year of Savannah life! Next to a park, schools, close to midtown, biking distance from most anything. We love it.

I’ve been doing some photography with Caroline under our name, Victory Stills. Reid and others from our group started an edible landscaping business called Victory Gardens. Robert was working for SCAD at first, but recently began working for the Church we are attending! God is truly affirming our decision to move here over and over and over.

G&A

As is apparent here, Archer and Georgia are good pals. More like brother and sister! Georgia calls him “Archer Bean” and when they leave each other’s sight it’s “Where’s Georgia?” or “Where’d Archer go?” What fun we have around here! It’s loud. And really messy. But there is never a lack of entertainment!

Our boy Archer is 19 months old now. And he is just the most fun. Talking up a storm, running around, and so full of personality. We’re so proud and amazed at the little boy he has become since we’ve moved. We just hit the tail of summer here in Savannah, but it was HOT! Hence the diaper-only attire.

So there you have it… Our hearts are full, our home is full, and our life is full. There’s so much more I could say. This is the tiniest tidbit of what we’ve been up to. Hopefully I’ll come back here more often to share life, inspiration, and the like.
