Highlights of Our Weekend Away

posted in: Marriage | 0

Hubby and I enjoyed a special weekend in the Georgia Mountains. One of his high school friends got married and the trip timed up perfectly for us to attend together. I wrote in my last post I was slightly anxious about leaving the kiddos and flying, but God is continually kind in meeting our every need. The kids had a blast with their Auntie and have slept more than ever these past two days since she left. That likely means they were crazy all weekend for her, but we were beyond thankful she was willing to fly here (without hesitation) and watch them!

We spent two nights at the York House Inn, Georgia’s oldest bed and breakfast. The room rates in that area during this time of year were slightly higher due to the leaves changing and this was the perfect place closer to our price range. I love historic buildings and despite the house being built in 1896, the owner took time to make it cozy.

We also made sure to see as much in the area that we could the morning before the wedding. We hiked Tallulah Gorge State Park and made that our workout for the day. The steps were intense and the views were worth it. We always love seeing a new farm and made a quick stop by Hillside Orchard Farms. Hubby scoped out their animal set-up and kept me from buying an apple fritter (that looked amazing).

The wedding weekend was full of fun details, from a welcome party Friday night to a gorgeous reception that lasted well into Saturday night. We ate, mingled, saw old friends and danced the night away. They said their vows next to a waterfall and we always love weddings to remind us of the special commitment that is marriage.

We even squeezed in a few quick meals with family in Atlanta! The weekend was full and rich of great memories. We are glad to be safe back at home with the kiddos! Time away gives us moments to refresh, reconnect in new ways and cherish this life we have together. Our marriage came before the kiddos and we make sure to always keep it at the forefront of our agendas.

With All My Love,

Johnna
