Life Lately

As y'all may have noticed, there hasn't been much happening in this corner of the world lately!  I thought I'd give y'all a little "life lately" from instagram/my phone, to recap the past six weeks.

Just as a little preview....lest you think that tour life is just full of friends + posing for pictures, let me enlighten you:
It ISN'T. =) 

Go visit this page to see that there is a whole lot more happening than fun + games!

 But, 43 concerts in 46 days is kinda hard to put into pictures. I also don't get to capture all the office work, and laundry, and set up/tear down, and all of the other "normal life" things that happen on the road. 

Below, you will see recaps in photos of time spent with old besties, and new friends, and amazing siblings! And head on over to our family blog to read the full updates I've been posting recently.
With love, all the way from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan! =)

  3. Hi! My name is Angel, and I'm from Rochester NY. I've been following your blog now for about 2 years now, and I'm so excited that you are {finally} coming to our area! I'm praying that Lord willing, we'll be able to see you guys in concert at the Conference center in Rushville on the 30th! Question: are there tickets for that, or a love offering, or..?

    God bless you guys! Have an awesome day!

      No tickets are necessary! There will be a love offering, I believe.

    4. I've never watched it-online, or on tv(we don't have it either!:)
      However, a friend gave me this link a couple of months ago to watch online-I think it still works?

    1. We shop mostly @ consignment + thrift stores. Hoping to do a post on that soon!
      Hairstyle inspiration comes from pinterest + watching other people. =) And then lots and lots of practice!

    2. Thank you!! ........ one more question, I dont mean to ask to man questions (sorry) but do you edit your pictures ? I have really taken an intrest in photogrophy, And you seem to be really great at it! Do you take pictures just when they happen or do you have them posed? Iam really interested in getting to know more!!
      Thanks,
      mackenzie, (the one who asked about clothes and hair :)

    3. Its no problem at all! =)
      I do edit some of my pictures, but I only use a very basic editing program (iPhoto) and mostly just edit saturation a bit, and thats it.
      I do both posed and also "as it happens" photography. I think its best to have a mix!
