I have to warn you, there are ton of pics in this post. Enjoy.
Israel (my 4th trip)
sam and i were dating during this trip and he was soon to surprise me 3 days into it and propose to me on the beach...i was traveling with my school.
i gave my girlfriends matching sharpie tattoos on the plane and layover in london. they each had 2 pomegranates and a word in a pretty script that described them best.
my friends...trying to entertain ourselves for the loooong ride.
one of the back ways into jerusalem via yaffa gate
3 days into our trip, we all went to the beach...someone special was waiting there for me. I had NO idea Sam was there. I thought he was working at a youth retreat in the states. Best surprise of my life. i had a friend film me so i could make a surprise video for samuel...they knew what was going to happen. i was clueless. i go on and on about a cool experience i had with God on the video then BAM my love shows up. if you want to watch the whole thing, you can click HERE. dreams do come true.
sam had proposed the day before. we spent the next 2 days in jerusalem, picking out wedding bands and exploring.
Yaffa, Israel enjoying the coast before our day came to a close
some friends and i decided to not only climb up the ancient ruins of masada but to jog up them. yes, i actually did it...and i felt like i was going to die afterwards. haha one of my favs.
