Refreshment

This past weekend Spencer and I had the chance to go to Annapolis for a few days. A good friend of Spencer's from college was getting married, so we decided to make a weekend out of it. With school having just started back in full-force, we both were in need of a little refreshment.

Annapolis is one of my favorite towns... for its history, great food, an dreally cute, unique shops. We walked from our hotel to the downtown area on Saturday morning, had breakfast, sat on the pier and talked for a while, and then poked our heads in a few shops. One of the shops we stumbled across was called "Bonjour," a really cute baby boutique. There were all kinds of cute outfits, gifts, stuffed animals, and nursery decorations. It was a bittersweet find. On the one hand, I had really hoped to find a store like this in which we could look for an outfit for Isaac. On the other hand, there were so many things in there I would have loved to have gotten for him. Thankfully, we did find a really sweet outfit for him, and we were able to leave the store just in time before either of us became too sad. Here's what the little guy will be sporting on his birthday...


I loved the shade of baby blue and the fact that it looked hand-made out of really delicate thread. It's cotton... not like a t-shirt cotton... but like a very fine knit cotton. It is so soft, and I love that we'll be able to see his little feet when he has it on.

Spencer and I also enjoyed Nick's wedding. I had never been to a Greek Orthodox wedding before, so it was neat to see all of the customs and traditions. The reception was great, and I think we both enjoyed the opportunity to get dressed up! Here are a few pictures from the reception...




After a really long first week back at school with the students, we were thaknful for the chance to get away and have some time together. And I was glad to be able to take Isaac to Annpolis.

What a beautiful outfit for Isaac. I agree that it looks perfect - color, fabric, style, all of it!

You and Spencer look wonderful. I'm glad you enjoyed your weekend, and I love what you said about Isaac being mentioned throughout the ceremony. God speaks to us in so many ways, doesn't he?

Stacy, you look fantastic. And I love Isaac's outfit. Thanks for the email this morning. It's nice to know exactly what to be praying for.

Stacy,

I got goosebumps when I read this post. I have been reading your blog for a while, and I am an Orthodox Christian. So much of your mentality and your spirituality are right in line with the Orthodox teachings that I've wanted to reach out to you for a while. I was so excited to read that you'd been to an Orthodox wedding! If you are ever interested in learning more about Orthodoxy I would be happy to refer you to some books and websites. In the meantime, my husband and I are keeping you, Spencer, and Isaac in our prayers.

Hello Stacy:
I work with your Aunt Robin and she was the one who sent me your site.

I truely marvel at your strength in God. I had gotten out of touch with God, but through your postings feel I am beginning to once again feel His touch.

I pray for your family daily and trust God to do His will in all three of your lives.

I often think of the song "I Walked Today Where Jesus Walked" and send those words to you.

Thank you so much for being such a blessing in my life, even though I will probably never meet you, I will never forget your strength and faith in God to see you through.

May God richly bless you and your family.

Marsha
