Living Room Change

Chris and I have been looking for a sectional for the past several years. It was our last major furniture purchase that we had to make. We could never really decide on what we wanted. Chris wanted to purchase a couch and two chairs and I wanted another sectional. But every time we went to look for living room furniture the sectionals were so over priced or when we did have the money a little dog named Baxter always needed it!! So back in July a local furniture sent me an email that said they were having a huge 4th of July sale. We decided to check it out and we finally found and purchased a new sectional!! Since we got a new sectional we thought that it would be a good time to redesign the living room. So we bought new curtains, lamps, and pillows. We still need 2 more curtain panels but the room is pretty much complete. I think that the finished room looks more sophisticated and classy!

Here is what the living room looked like when we first moved in with the old sectional:

Gute Reise

Saying goodbye to someone is the hardest thing to do. A couple of weeks ago we had to say goodbye to our friends Jonathan & Valerie who are going to be serving as missionaries at Black Forest Academy in Germany. Our smALL group, which is known as the Wolf Pack, said our goodbyes at our favorite restaurant in Springdale. We are truly going to miss them but we are excited to see how God is shaping their lives.
