A Sad Day

Such a hard thing to hear from my husband last night that this cute soul had passed on. What a cute face and sweet friend to all of us UGA fans. As they have said, "He was 10-3 last year which is not bad for a freshman.....Uga VII was not as active or mischievous as his father but more distinguished. He realized his role when he put his shirt on. He was well-behaved and always appreciated the significance of his role."

This Time Last Weekend....

I had been in Pine Mountain , Georgia for approximately 24 hours in my beautiful cozy cabin home pictured here:

I served as a chaperone for our youth girls' retreat last weekend we departed Friday at 5pm and came home Sunday around 3pm. The trip was great . Our speaker did a fabulous job of building unity in our group and even made me think seriously about my God time andmy life right now. We took one of our former youth with us as our personal chef ( he is studying at Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School) and we also went to the Spa at Callaway Gardens where all of the girls got a manicure, I got a pedicure and my fellow chaperone got a massage. While all of that was nice, my favorite moments were bonding with the girls ( staying up til 12:30 watching the dumbest "scary" movie, playing Uno, going through the lessons) and a little alone time on Saturday while half the girls were at the spa and my girls were taking showers. I got to go out on a walk/jog through our mountain community. Now I love cozy cabin time at anytime of the year but in the fall it was just breathtaking. The leaves were perfect colors and there was a little creek that gave the perfect soundtrack for my run. I loved how I was just doing something for me and just getting out there in God's beauty. I thought how nice it would be if I could do it more often. It was fabulous. Here are some more pics from the weekend:
