The month of May was fairly lowkey for us until the very end of the month. Over Memorial Day weekend, we flew to Georgia! It was a very busy weekend full of fun, friends, and family. Friday afternoon we ate yummy southern cooking at Mary Mac's Tea Room in Atlanta. Friday night through Sunday morning we were in Augusta for one of my best friend's wedding. Beth and Sy Allen got married and it was a beautiful ceremony and fun reception. I had the honor of reading scripture during the ceremony. We were so glad to be able to celebrate with the happy couple! This was also the first wedding Matt and I had attended since our own wedding, so that was fun as well! On Sunday we drove straight to Alpharetta, GA for our nephew, Timothy's high school graduation and party. Most of the Seiter's were there, we were only missing Matt's younger brother, Michael, who stayed in St. Louis. It was so much fun to celebrate with Timothy and the Pratts' and get to spend time with Matt's siblings, parents, and neices and nephews! Then Monday, we spent the day with my family. My sister and nieces drove down from Asheville, NC to spend time with us and I was so grateful that they made the effort to come down to see us!! We took them on a train ride around Stone Mountain and it was so fun! We miss all of our family so much so being able to spend time with so many people from both of our families was a huge blessing!! Then the last weekend of May, we went to the George Strait concert! It was so much fun and we got to see many talented artists, including Blake Shelton, Randy Houser, Julianne Hough, and Chuck Wicks. We had a great time, and even learned that there are in fact rednecks up here in MA!!!
