This year was the first in a couple that we did not have the pleasure of being with our families. And though we missed them dearly, we have a wonderful opportunity to spend time with our friends Jeremy & Emily, and Julie & Jared.
Jeremy and Emily were incredibly gracious by opening their home up and hosting all of us. It was such a cozy, fun evening together as we all took extra time to get to know one another even better. I can't tell you how thankful I am for the Cox family, as they really know how to love others. They're ability to be intentional is a great example for us as a family.
Jared and Julie are new in town, which is a fun treat! I feel spoiled because it's like we get first dibs on being their friends. They're a really fun couple who happen to move a lot... so they seem to have a lot of perspective on life. Conversation with them was really fun... and as you may know, I just LOVE getting to know people... so needless to say, having them for the evening was super enjoyable.
Anyway, I failed to get any photos of the evening... which is a crying shame... because we had boatloads of food. And everyone looked so festive... the girls in their cute outfits... and the guys in sweaters and such. It was a wonderful time!
