going to the chapel.

We are boarding a plane first thing tomorrow morning to head east for Jacob & Alison's wedding. I've been looking forward to this January weekend for months and am so excited it's finally here! Three days filled with celebration, dear friends, thankfulness, toasts, wild dancing, and seeing one of my favorite friends enter into a most beautiful blessing with her Jacob. It's going to be a wonderful weekend. Here we go!

(PS - remember when Alison asked me to be her bridesmaid?)

lowland hum.

Remember Daniel and Lauren from this post back in June? 

Well, they are up to something new and wonderful:

Please consider gifting them a donation of any size to help with the costs of recording their first joint album. They are two of my dearest friends and I am truly very excited for their new music. I've heard sneak peeks and I'm telling you, it's wonderful. They are magnificent together in marriage and music. 

Visit their KickStarter Page to learn more or donate. 

(And have a look at the awesome/creative/hilarious rewards for their backers on the right side of the page.)

snow wall.

Lake Tahoe snow is no joke.

This is my middling attempt at a blog post for the week. Fifty words and a photo of me pointing at (an undeniably impressive) wall of snow. It can only get better from here folks. Thanks for hanging in there.

love, beth

jan 1.

After a 12 day whirlwind of travel, we are back home in our apartment for the first time tonight. We spent a happiest Christmas in North Carolina and New Year's on incredible Lake Tahoe. As 2013 begins, I'm acutely aware of how rich I am. I feel so much thankfulness for the extravagant goodness in my life.
