We celebrated Jesse's 2nd birthday last month. Though we gave him all the gifts, we all unquestionably know that the best gift is one he gives to us... him. He is a light in our everyday lives. His laughter makes everything okay. He runs, and jumps, and splashes, and yells, and babbles, and he mesmerizes us all. These last two years have given us so much joy!

Morgan and Mike started their relationship long distance, and they have done a lot of traveling since the beginning. So it was only natural that when it came time to tie the knot, they wanted a destination wedding. They both now live in Atlanta, and they wanted somewhere close enough that their friends and family could drive and celebrate a whole weekend with them. When they saw the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, they knew they found the perfect place!

My parents just celebrated their 40th anniversary this last Saturday. 40 years. Wow. I can only hope that my own marriage will be as strong and forgiving as theirs! Thank you, Mom and Dad, for giving me something to look forward to. For being such good...
