Now, I'm hopeful. Well, I never truly lost hope; I just spent most of July wondering how to take another step. I was worried that the next one would be the wrong one. Nevertheless, God reminded me through many people and circumstances of just how mighty and perfect His plan is.
I'm excited for fall, and I hope you are as well! To kick things off, I'd like to share a few pictures from recent activities. These are places I've visited and people I've met. I share them with you now because I truly believe that they provide a greater viewfinder into this month's "first thoughts." And they certainly are places I'd visit a second time (and pick again).
