So, I’m basically a grown-up kid. Here are things that I love:
- Bright colored food
- Fruity Pebbles & Fruit Loops on donuts
- Fruity Pebble French Toast (had this in Daytona, FL – life. changed)
If you’ve never been to Charleston, you must go and go soon! It has been on our travel bucket list, and we were very excited about seeing all the architecture, eating some delicious biscuits, and doing a carriage tour. If you want to make a full week vacation out of it I would suggest spending a couple of days in Charleston, Savannah, and ending on Tybee Island. You could spend way more than a week doing all three of those, but it would be a beautiful week to remember.
Here’s how we spent our time in Charleston!
A word of the year, a motto, a Bible verse, a thought, a feeling, an emotion, a resolution…
These are all different things that people try to “nail down” for the new year, and stick to! If it’s a resolution it may be multiple things that you want to accomplish that year. A motto? Something you refer to throughout the year when you are having a bad day, or maybe a good day!
For me? Resolutions never worked. I tried! I got out my journal (always new, because is there any better reason to buy a new notebook than to start the new year off right?), and started writing down what I wanted to accomplish that year. It always ended up looking something like…
If you had asked me a couple of weeks ago what we were doing for Thanksgiving I would’ve told you it would be much different this year. Brannon and I had it in our heads that we would be in our little home, we’d make a run to Trader Joe’s for our Thanksgiving Feast, and we’d spend the day relaxing and watching Christmas movies. Sounds fun, but it would be the first time we wouldn’t see any family for Thanksgiving. We are big family people so while we’d be fine, we were both a little bummed.
Due to a last minute change in our schedule, the week before Thanksgiving, we found ourselves in Virginia the week of Thanksgiving. Guess what? I have a first cousin – once removed (someone has had to explain this to me so many times), that lives in Lynchburg, VA with her husband and 3 kids! We actually work together on a magazine that she owns in Lynchburg, VA, and we had planned on stopping by during our travels, but never did we think it would land on Thanksgiving. They graciously took us in – and we had such a wonderful time.
