Several weeks ago as I looked up,
this was my view.....
and when I looked in front of me,
this was what I saw.
and to the left was this lovely Lady.
And to the right was this!!
We were driving in this darling bug..... We weren't quite as cool as this dude
who obviously gets out way more then we do!!We didn't care though, cause we were
headed here!!!!!

We lounged around and talked,
entire conversations at ONCE.
We went out to eat again and again and again,
feeding ONLY our mouths and cutting ONLY our food.
We took beautiful pictures....
and crazy pictures..... We ate candy....
lots and lots of candy.
Candy that we did not have to share with our children.
We acted like teenagers,
because we could!!!

But then we settled down again and decided to come back home
to rescue our husbands and the 32 children we had left behind!!!

This morning I sat down to my computer to visit some of my fun blogs, and came to this post. It is one wonderful, fun, and well done post! What a beautiful group of women! Young moms that were given an opportunity to get away, be together, share, laugh, and relax. I love the last picture and the words with it. It should be in a magazine. Well done my friend. I bet you felt rejuvenated when you got back home.

Thanks for posting on a weekly basis. You and your sister are so talented. Well, for that matter I think your entire family is gifted.

Janelle! I'm finally taking a little time to catch up in the blogging world, and yours is one of the first sites I go to! I always love reaching your fresh and alive posts - love how you are so real and are able to be the same person online as you are in person! So, I can't comment on every post I've missed the past few weeks with us moving, but just wanted to say that I love being back and feeling in touch with you once again! :) Wishing you a lovely end of the weekend!
