Catherine's Birthday

Thank you to everyone who sent birthday wishes to Catherine on Tuesday.  I took her to Salem, MA where we enjoyed a delicious seafood dinner at Capt's Waterfront.  It was also fun to remember the story of our engagement, which was a year ago this day, and think about how God has taken care of us over the past year.  I asked her what her top four highlights have been - two before and two after the move to MA (she couldn't say wedding or honeymoon).  They were:
1)  A week spent in Duck, NC with her family this summer.
2)  A Christmas party with her Ward Elementary students, which my parents came up to help with.
3)  Trips into Boston (walking the Freedom Trail and seeing Sufjan Stevens).
4)  Making friends at Gordon-Conwell.

She has also enjoyed visits from friends like Justin, Mark and Lois, Matt and Caroline, and getting to see Kelly in Boston. 

I am fortunate to have such an amazing wife who has been a great friend for six years, loves me well, has made our apartment into a home, and has ventured with me to the far Northeast!

Here are some pictures from our dinner.

We both had the surf and turf: filet mignon, shrimp, scallops, asparagus, and lobster risotto.

Happy Birthday, Catherine!
