The Beginning of Something New

Yesterday was the first day of this new and crazy adventure we are taking on!  Tyler reluctantly left a teary wife and Lincoln (who had no idea what was going on) about 8am and got into Louisville around 8:30pm (LONG day driving).  He stayed with some friends of friends and got back on the road about 9:00 this morning and should get to Virginia around 5 or 6 tonight. 

Lincoln and I left yesterday morning and made the 4 hour drive (my first long trip with just me and Lincoln) to Nebraska.  The trip went really well and we're in the process of getting settled in here at my parents house. 

Last night I kind of came to the quick realization that this is going to be a long 5 months without Tyler.  Our first chance to fly out and see him won't be until May 20.  This will be the longest stretch of time without getting to see him for the 5 months.  After this trip I've tentatively planned each trip 3-4 weeks apart. 

I'm excited for the opportunity to be able to get this time here with family.  Tonight after Mom gets off work Lincoln and I are heading with her to Albion for an Outreach with my parents church.  I love going to these outreaches and am so excited for what God has in store for tonight's message. 

I'm definitely going to be busy these next couple weeks Hope has showers the next two weekends (one of which I'm throwing! yay!) and then heading back to Wichita (yay!) for a garage sale with my awesome friend

Well I better get back to unpacking everything! 


  1. I'm praying for all of you--that God will comfort you in your time apart and provide joy as you continue to see His amazing purpose for all of this!

  2. oh sweet sorry!! sounds like you're getting involved, staying busy and that you have a strong support system! you two will be like honeymooners again when this is over...that's the only bright side I can think of. love you!
