Saturday in TR

Hey, y'all! Been a lot going on....sorry I haven't been around Bloggyland! Last week, my Mama came up and spent several days--as I mentioned in my last post. On Saturday, we went up to a cute little town called Travelers Rest. Two sisters have transformed an old hardware store into a cafe! It was precious and delicious! Part of the store is that--a store. Cute items that Runner Mom could use in her house. Note the polka dot bowls! The other is the restaurant. They have added a screened porch on the back for"fine dining" ! It was a little cool, so we opted to eat inside.
I have a senior photo shoot in the morning. I'm really excited about this! The guy is darling! He used to play baseball with child#1 when they were in 1st and 2nd grade! His picture was in the local paper yesterday saying that he has a scholarship to paly baseball at a nearby university! I'm so proud! He 's picking up his tux tonight--his prom is Saturday, and Child #1's is next Saturday. Anyway, he's going to wear his tux for some of the shots. I'll let y'all know how it turns out! Just pray that God will bless me with His eyes as I look for the best shots.
I loved hearing about where y'all would go on your dream vacation! How fun! Thanks for sharing. One of the places that was mentioned was the Holy Lands. I am not going anytime soon, but I have an opportunity on Saturday morning to help send a group of youth from a local church there! They are raising money to go! How awesome is that? So, Runner Mom will lace up her running shoes and participate in their 5K. That's not my favorite distance, but it's for a great cause! I'll let y'all know how it goes!
Sweet Blessings!

I didn't realize you were in SC. I grew up in a little town called Campobello. I spent lots of time in Spartanburg, Greenville, TR, etc. It is a beautiful area...with the mountains all around.

Blessings, andrea

Hey there friend. You sound like me. I haven't been blogging lately either. Life has been CRAZY BUSY. I'd still like to get together at some point and have lunch...maybe summer?

Dream vacation -- I think anywhere right on the ocean - so majestic, calming and powerful all at once. His creation.

Traveler's Rest... now who couldn't use some of that.

I'm trying to experience a bit of it this weekend. My in-laws received the package today and Mimi called me to ask if she could open it. I told her to wait till mommy gets home.

Thanks in advance for sending my surprise. I look forward to letting Mimi unwrap it!

Hey Susan!

Jon & I were in Charleston, SC last weekend. Thought of you since that's your home state.

Life's busy here too. Be blessed!
