Quick trip.

Yesterday we went to Fairfax to see my friend Kelsey. Mike had picked up some friends early that morning from the airport and then came back to the house. We all got ready, stopped at Starbucks for some caffeine and headed off on our 3 hour tour.

it was a great day. Mike was really gracious to let me have some one-on-one time with Kels. I just enjoyed getting to hang out with my friend and hear what's going on with her and play catch-up.

The trip back it started raining but thankfully the traffic wasn't too bad. Mike and I witnessed a horrific accident that happened right in front of us. A really fast car all of a sudden seemed to cross all 4 lanes of traffic and spin out of control. I have no idea how no other car was hit. It was very sobering to watch and I must confess my adrenaline was pumping and I had a hard time relaxing after that. I hate car accidents. It always brings up my sister. The thought even occurred to me that if we were that car I would probably have lost the babies (in my womb)... if not worse. Some things can seem so random to me. I know God is sovereign but I don't know why things happen or don't happen at different times. Don't get me wrong, I am thankful that we are safe, I just don't know what kept that from being us.

Today Libby woke up with a fever so we didn't go to church. Mike picked up pizza and we watched Roman Holiday (Audrey Hepburn/Gregory Peck) in bed. It's been a really chill day. I went out tonight and had some time with God... some time to think and reflect and pray. I also worked on an article for Ungrind. It's been a good day.

I'm tired so I'm going to turn in. I have an OBGYN appt. in the morning and I'm excited because Mike is going with me! The ultrasound appointment is on the 22nd...still 2 weeks away. Looking forward to a new day.

Sorry to hear about the accident. I always find myself praying now when I see or pass them. Glad you are all OK.

Looking forward to hearing about the ultrasound in a couple weeks! :-)

I'm glad you guys, and the people in the other car, were OK (assuming they were anyhow). I always get super shook up after witnessing an accident (or the aftermath of an accident). It happened on Battlefield and Volvo just the other day as I was walking into Carrabbas. I called 911 and was so unsettled the rest of the night. (shuttering still). Anyhow, I love you and am glad God kept you and your family safe. Miss you!
