Wedding festivities begin!

Dave, a good friend from school, and his fiancee Susan are getting married on July 10 in Destin. We went to a BBQ couples shower for them yesterday, and it was so fun. Susan is so adorable and always keeps me entertained, and I love her! I know they are going to be a great married couple - they have been dating for 8 YEARS!!!! So, congratulations and best wishes to Dave and Susan! Here are a couple of pictures from the shower. PS: that is my bow bouquet creation!

Kassa village of Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria

I recently returned from a medical missions trip to Nigeria, Africa. It was an absolutely amazing experience that I will never forget! We flew into Abuja and traveled to Jos (where we stayed a night) and finally ended in Zing (where we had our medical project for 5 days). While in Jos, we visited the Kassa village, where a riot had left most of the men dead, leaving many widows and orphans. We delivered food and clothing to the women and children, and it was an unforgetable experience. Here are a few pictures from this adventure:

Many of the women listening to a speech on why we are visiting:
Children professing their love and belief in God:

Hope you enjoyed, and there will be more from my trip soon!

Peace! -Alicia

Is this ok?

So, I've heard that you shouldn't start blogging until you have children (thanks to my etiquette know-it-all, Jenna). We know that this will not happen for us for a long time, so does that make premature blogging ok? I can't keep everyone updated on our life anymore, so perhaps this is the best way to do it. For all my friends already blogging out there, I'm excited to be joining you, and hope you're as interested in my life as I am in yours! ; ) Peace and happy blogging! -Alicia
