Life is filled with moments of surprise and divine appointments. After moving to Northern California, we quickly settled into our new church. Thankfully, it didn’t take us long to find a place that we aligned ourselves doctrinally with and seemed to be a good fit for our family. One Sunday morning, Diane turned to me and introduced herself. I asked her how long they had been attending and she told me they had just moved to the area. They had moved from Lomita, which is where Jeff and I first lived when we were married and we had grown up in the next town over. Wow! Soon, we realized we had mutual friends and an immediate friendship began. She’s a food blog writer, and an amazing cook! Check out her website here.
When they approached me to take their family photos I quickly said “YES!”. Their oldest daughter will be starting Master’s college this year, and their oldest son will be going into the Army next month. They wanted to get one last family photo shoot in before the big kids left. We adore this precious family and we are so glad we met them, even if it took us both moving over 400 miles to cross paths.
