My mom came down and we went shopping for some clothes with me. How perfect! Spending time with my awesome mom AND getting some retail therapy in. Deeeeee-lightful! Mom is such a hoot and also has great taste so she was the perfect shopping buddy.
Friday, I had to work but was able to leave early. Woo-hoo! When I got home, Eric and I threw some clothes in a suitcase and headed down to Nashville (Indiana, that is) for a largely anticipated couples retreat hosted by my old church. Nashville is in Brown County which is a beautiful and quaint tourist area that is largely popular in the fall, especially for camping and hunting. There are tons of rolling hills and gorgeous trees galore! Plenty for the eyes to take in but just in case that isn't enough, there are several little shops and boutiques to browse through. Although we are still in winter we had fantastic weather!! I'm talking lows 60's and upper 50's. Nice, right?? The drive was so scenic and speckled with some oddities as well such as a camel farm AND a little boy with a power mullet throwing rocks at passsing cars in an itty, bitty town. We stopped at the local McD's before going to the retreat. As I was enjoying my chicken nuggets I noticed this gem...
|"Coon hunt with Black & Tans" haha I lol'd when I saw this. I literally lifted up the blinds and snuck my camera under to get this shot. Excuse the gunk on the window.|
|Beautiful! And check out all of the goodies on the table! Mmmm!|
After having a great night's sleep, Eric and I woke up to this beautiful sunrise...
|Our camera didn't do it justice.|
|Beautiful, sweet Ivy!!!|
|Wyatt going in for a kiss but Ivy not looking so ready. haha |
Yes, this is exactly what I needed. Isn't the Lord awesome to provide me exactly what I needed at exactly the right time?? He is good.
I had an awesome weekend? Did you? What did you do??
