I sure do miss the faces in this picture. Although it's hard to be a world away, i'm so proud of what they're doing! Grant is in optometry school in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Candice Rae is a nurse at a local hospital in the same city. They are both serving at their local church and loving it! Blake just joined the United States Army and is currently at boot camp. I know he is learning a discipline he will forever be grateful for! Hannah is holding down the fort with their dog, Jack. She is such a trooper! and last but definitely not least....my sweet sister, Kelsey Brooke. She has worked SO hard to get to where she is. She is getting her prerequisites for dental hygiene at a community college in Tennessee. The only bad thing about that is she'll never get her patients teeth to look half as good as hers:) Just wanted to give a shout out to my favorite stateside folk.

Happy Anniversary!!

Grant and Candice sittin in a tree... I can't believe it's been FIVE years since these two crazies got hitched!! Grant always knew he didn't want to waste time on people that weren't his forever bride. Candice was the same way about guys! To know both of them was to love them according to everyone at Dickson County High School. The only problem was that they didn't really know each other! I played soccer with Candice and looked up to her so much, and of course Grant was the coolest guy I knew right up there next to Blake Allen! Grant and I shared a locker and I looked forward to seeing him in between every class. I know most people don't even want to make eye contact with their siblings in school, that was not the case for the Allen kids. I started noticing that Grant wasn't showing up to the locker. Around the same time he had asked me what I thought about Candice Green. I told him I was for it!!! Then, I started putting two and two together! Fast forward 3 years and they were married! Grant and Candice have both played a big part in my life. They are honestly two of my favorite people on the planet and God has used them more than they even know. They are funny to boot:)
