Two Guys

... and a birthday cake with many candles = old men.

Celebrated my husband and my older brother's birthday tonight - both July babies.

To my brother Ken (left), without whom I would not have seen so many Van Damme movies as a kid, and with whom I learned how to dribble a basketball - happy 3?th birthday. You are always 2 years older than me, and that makes me feel like a young spring chicken. I love you and am always inspired by your drive to create. 

To my husband Tim (right), without whom I would not have eaten so many Klondike bars at night after the kids go down, and with whom I have laughed so hard I almost throw out my back, and even cried so hard that my eyes disappear with puffiness - happy 3?th birthday. You are the love of my life and I always feel like I won the spousal lottery when I married you. 

I am so blessed to have these two guys in my life.
Happiest of birthdays to you both~

Caleb is One - Full Post

Happy birthday little Caleb! 

[A little note about this awesome family]
Sam and Sujin just moved up to Seattle from SoCal about a month ago... and moved with the purpose of joining us in planting The Well Community Church, a new church plant in Bellevue. 
Sam is a gifted worship leader with a heart for counseling, and we are so excited to have him join the pastoral team at The WellSujin is equally talented, having recently graduated with a Masters of Music in Piano Performance/Collaborative Arts. Talent aside, they are a couple that loves Jesus and desires to make Him known and we feel privileged to have them here. 

In short, they rock.

Even in the midst of unpacking boxes, shopping for furniture and a last minute cancellation by their other venue of choice, Sujin managed to throw together a beautiful party for her little one. Caleb's great grandfathers (one of whom is 100 years old - um, what??) were both in attendance and it was a special, intimate party. The best kind of party.

We love you Chung family!
