The Month of May

Doug and I have been pretty busy this month. Here's some of the highlights!
After the wedding, I had the chance to head out to Saskatchwan to visit my family for about a week. I caught a ride out with some of Doug's family from Saskatoon who had come out for the wedding, and flew home later. It was great to see my family, but I was kind of strange to be away from Doug for that long. It was the longest we had been apart since getting married.

Here I am with my youngest sister Angie, out for Chinese food with the family to celebrate Mother's Day. It was nice to be with my Mom on Mother's Day for once!

Doug and I also had the chance to get away for the weekend. The week after I got back from Saskachewan we headed out to Granville Island in Vancouver to spend the weekend. It was so much fun to spend some time exploring the island's unique shops, to go out for some nice meals, and to hang out together.

Here we are enjoying some ice cream on a nice, romantic, evening stroll after dinner.

It has become a Toews' family tradition to get together every Sunday for lunch, and then to spend the entire day hanging out. Usually the boys head out to play some kind of sport together, while the sisters eat some treats, go shopping, or just spend the afternoon talking. This past Sunday was like all others. It was really relaxing to just be with family. Here, Micah and I are sharing a piece of licorice. He kept eating more and more of the treat until we were practically smooching!

The last couple of weeks I have been looking for job postings, sending out resumes, and going to interviews. So far, I have not found anything yet, which has been somewhat discouraging. Even though it's nice to spend time hanging out with friends and family and to relax at home, I am really wanting to get out there and start working! Yet, I need to remember that God is faithful, and that He has something in mind for my future, even though I may not know what it is right now.
Well, now you're all up to date on what's new with the two of us!

Hey Elissa, I selfishly must add that it is nice to have you around for weekday afternoons. But I also wanted you to know that I am praying for you and whatever job God is preparing for you to have. You are an awesome sister-in-law!
