Dara and I have returned from an amazing couple of days in Washington DC. We headed up there on Tuesday to meet with Mark Batterson. I always leave encouraged when we spend time with Mark. He’s one of the fresh voices God is using in incredible ways. We spent a couple of hours with him and then took in DC.

It was so great to just wander around DC with Dara. We had so much fun walking all around the nation’s capitol. We had absolutely no plans and no kids to dictate our day. No one said to us, “I have to go potty!” or “I want chicky and french fries!” The entire day was spent holding hands, walking, talking, laughing and taking in the sights. Absolutely refreshing.

This is a pic of me, Dara, our Ebenezers Coffee and the Capitol building. All of that equals a great, great day 🙂
