I’d meant to post all of these before leaving, but we barely made it out of Monterey with everything done, so I had to wait! We’re so thankful for the quality time we got to have with some precious family and friends during our last week there… Nana and Pops who graciously helped us through the move, Carie out from Nashville, Ahn & Grant, our sweet church congregation, the Gladdings, Sommer & Ian, Linds & Josh, my big brothers!, nieces, Melissa (my sis in law) and her beautiful baby belly before our newest niece was born the day we flew out!, the Michealsens, Maddie & Ika, Ash & David. Thank you all for spending those last days with us (and last hours — the Coopers drove in the middle of the night to say goodbye and even helped us get our car cleaned and ready before it had to be at the port at 7am and us at the airport immediately after!)
Beautiful Monterey will always be special to us, being Gracie’s birth place. The best part about this past year was the gift of her, getting to spend time with family and friends (LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!), and Cam being on a normal schedule for once (albeit with lots and lots of studying) which meant we got more consecutive time with him than we ever have before.
