Photo Ops

My Sister-in-law and my 1 1/2 year old niece and 3 month old nephew are in town until tomorrow and yesterday we went to the park to take some family pictures. My brother is over seas and they are going to send some to him for Father’s day and his birthday. So here are just a few…I had so much fun!

Ok, so I know there were more than a few…but I couldn’t choose! Enjoy!


Dear Adam,

HAPPY 1ST ANNIVERSARY!!! I am so thankful to have been given such a wonderful husband whom I love with all my heart! I can’t believe we’ve already been married a year! It has definitely flown by and I am so excited about the years to come! This past year has been absolutely amazing and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Let’s see…there was our wedding, our relaxing honeymoon, being able to work together over the summer, beach trips, learning how to live with each other, learning how to sleep (zzzzzz….) with each other, all the Appalachian games we went to (on our way to 4 this year…championships that is!), long car rides, our first Thanksgiving and Christmas as a married couple (and figuring how to balance families), your surprise birthday, dinners at Olive Garden and Chile’s, tithing as a couple, looking for our 1st house, buying our 1st house, overcoming hardships, our amazing anniversary weekend and so much more!!!!

Adam, I truly am blessed to have such an amazing husband to stand beside me on this journey of life and I am so thankful the Lord chose me to be your wife. You are an amazing man of God and a servant to everyone around you who truly sacrifices your needs to meet the needs of others. Thank you so much for always being there for me and respecting me as a person and more importantly as your wife. You are such an amazing person and I am so happy and honored to be called Mrs. Elizabeth Hamilton! I love you with all my heart and I will always be here for you. Always remember that you have whatever it takes to do anything you want to in this world and I will be right there by your side to love and support you through it! Thank you for loving me and I look forward to the many more years we have together as Mr. and Mrs. Adam Hamilton!! I LOVE YOU!

I Love my Husband!!!

My husband is the best ever! Our anniversary is tomorrow (May 5) and he surprised me with an amazing present! Last night we stayed at the hotel where we stayed on our wedding night and it was perfect! We got to go out to one of our favorite restaurants too and eat a delicious dinner! He also surprised me with a coupon to have a “photo shoot” with each other done by our very talented small group leaders, Daniel and Candice (courtesy of The Beautiful Mess… I am very excited about this and I can’t wait!!! I do have a little surprise for Adam tomorrow and I think he’ll like it. Anyway, here’s to an amazing anniversary weekend!!!

Fruit -n- Crunchy Wrap

A very yummy and healthy snack! (and easy to make!)

1 TBsp. softened cream cheese
1 tsp. honey
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 Flatout harvest wheat wrap (near the bakery at Lowe’s foods)–not by the bread
1 TBsp. granola (cereal isle)
3 strawberries, hulled and sliced thin
1/2 banana sliced thin

Mix together cream cheese, honey, and cinnamon. Spread cream cheese over entire wrap. On bottom 1/3 of rounded end layer strawberries/banana and granola. Roll up tightly and cut in half or in pinwheels. This makes one wrap…but to make for a large group, just repeat recipe. Enjoy!!
