(this is just a sample picture from my mother-in-law's computer, but it sure looks an awful lot like the gorgeous sunset i saw last night!!)
I only have a few minutes to write a little post (the computer in my in-law's house is in the nursery so it is usually occupied with a sleeping Joseph! Anyway, it's been a very fun and relaxing vacation so far. Lots of family time, good eating (thanks, Diane!), amazing thrifting adventures - the secondhand stores, antique shops, and "junk" shops have been incredible here in the deep south! And Clint and I even got to take a day trip away (with Joseph along for the ride - he did incredibly well)! We went shopping for wonderful antiques and vintage goodies, ate a delicious fish dinner and watched the most beautiful orangey-pink sunset on the hour drive home. It was wonderful.
Today, we drove to a little town in north Florida for my father-in-law's family reunion (he's from a family of ten children!). They get together every year on their late parent's wedding anniversary to honor them and spend family time. The kids had a blast playing at the pond where the picnic area was. Now, Clint's sister, Amy and her son, Tyler, are here with us for a couple days to visit. Tomorrow's church day at my in-law's small country church.
I've had a great time just enjoying the small town way of life and it's beautiful simplicity. It's been just what I've needed!
Have a blessed Sunday,
