Our Destin Trip!

The Lord blessed Kalen and I with an AMAZING, memorable trip to Destin, Florida this past August. Kalen planned the whole trip and we had a blast. I wanted to share some pictures. 

The first day when we got out to the beach we were AMAZED by the beautiful clear blue water. Kalen I were discussing the beauty and he said "if it's this beautiful here, on earth, IMAGINE the GLORY-filled BEAUTY of Heaven..."
I can't even fathom...

Some beach adventures below; we had a picnic on the beach for 2 lunches which was memorable and fun! I LOVED relaxing under our tent and listening to the waves and seagulls.

As summer approached, I was determined to get a better attitude about working out. I decided, by God's grace, to begin a work-out regime! My journey began on June 1st. The first day I ran for about 10 minutes. I continued this 3 days a week. After a week of that, I bumped up the time to 15 minutes of running 3 - 4 days a week.

At each milestone in my journey I took time to capture my accomplishments. (See pictures below)
