Life Is Good


Sadly, I'm feeling a bit under the weather, but I really wanted to share some of our first camping adventures with y'all, so here I am. I have so much to say about our trip, mostly that it was everything I'd dreamed of {and more} and I can't wait to hit the road again! 



We were thrilled that our first adventure was to our beloved Savannah on the Georgia coast. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park. We drove over to Tybee Island to have a little beach fun everyday and these are some photos from our last evening there {sigh}. Hubby and I got in lots of time together too! There's lots of benefits to having older kiddos on vacation and we took full advantage of our free time!




Tybee Island is our favorite beach. It's a non-commercialized beach {my favorite kind} and still sports that old time beach kind of a feel. Lots of locally owned little shops and eateries, and none of that chain stuff from the real world. 



I'll have more about our camping experience later as soon as I'm feeling better. It was so wonderful y'all and I have tons of ideas swimming around in my head on how to improve our camper life. I can't wait to share them all with you. Y'all have an awesome week!

Unplugged


So last Wednesday we unplugged. We unplugged from all computers and t.v's and even our phones. I'm not gonna lie, it was hard. It was hardest for our two daughters {12 and 14}, but bless their hearts, they did it with minimal whining. We rented a cabin in Tennessee in southern Appalachian territory at Roan Mountain. One word- breathtaking. 





I prayed for snow and right on cue, there was snow. The cabin was picturesque and nestled among pines and hardwoods with an icy stream meandering through the property. 






I fear that all of our technology pulls us apart from one another. I worry that I'm not connected enough to my own people, these little ones that God has blessed me with. So away we went, to huddle close to our own and re-connect with all that's important. To read by candlelight and play lots of board games and take walks in the snow, and appreciate the wonders of the world around us. 






We laughed more and cuddled longer. We sat fireside in woolly socks and ate way too much chocolate. It was all kinds of awesome!
