Oh my heart is a mix of emotions... truly I am all over the place...lots of it in a very good way:)

We had a great Tuesday... We hit our appt. and then ran down to Beverly Hills, Sunset Blvd, Santa Monica Blvd, and Rodeo Drive. We didn't have tons of time, but figured we had to see it while we were here... Who knows if we will ever get out here again? It was really fun to see all of that... Oh my, I totally got a kick out of all of the fancy shops... but it really is totally not me at all:) I am a pretty simple gal:) It was incredibly fun to people watch there.

Then we headed to the coast to drive the Pacific Coast Highway. We drove up to our friends, the Barketts, new home just up the coast. Let me just say, it is beautiful out here. So much more beautiful than I ever thought it would be. The coast was gorgeous, as were the beaches. So the drive was a total delight. And our night with our friends was even better. When you spend a few years with these families living at the seminary together, being neighbors... it is so nice to reconnect.

Yesterday was filled with a very special meeting in the morning... we will see if I ever share anything about that part of the trip... but let me just say... it has me filled with hope and the same time a little mixed up inside... we will see what the Lord has in store. Ultimately Greg and I are so thankful to have been given the opportunity to come out here and make this trip and experience a reality...I know I am being pretty cryptic... sorry...

So the last 2 days we've been doing a lot of hanging around... It has been great to just totally relax together... We are missing the kids like crazy... are so thankful for our friends who graciously have taken all 5 of them and loved them for us these last few days... We can't wait to see them tomorrow, Lord willing.

You know me, the nervous flyer... I would appreciate your prayers for safe travel tomorrow afternoon... I can't wait to ALL be together again at our home:) I will try to post some pictures once I return home:)

So glad that y'all had a great trip and were able to spend some time together! Praying for safe travels back home! I love California! It is beautiful there! My mom and I went to the Beverly Hills area a few years back. I loved walking up and down Rodeo Drive looking for celebrities!! :) We only saw Larry King.
