Well, it happened.
The once-in-a-decade-trip happened. And now I’m even more convinced we should make it more frequent than once every decade.
Nashville was the perfect backdrop for the getaway as it provided excellent food, super fun shopping, fabulous scenery, and great weather. Then again, I think if the food was gross, shopping unsuccessful, scenes were boring and it had rained the whole time, you would have never heard a peep of complaint out of the three of us. Because we had each other, and lots to talk about.
The. weekend. was. perfect.
We (my oldest sister Emily and lifelong friend Rachael) left behind our 8 total children and husbands and spent 2.5 days together….as you can see from the photos…we had a great time….
As my flight was landing in Orlando, the sun was setting. The light was just perfect and I was beyond giddy to get home to my babies and Stephen.
I closed my eyes and relished the good gifts God has given me. Sisters and friends and His truth and grace. And a Brooks and Reese and husband. Home.
In that moment, the gratitude swelling in my heart was completely overwhelming.
Thank you, Jesus.
