weekend of rest

This past weekend was a weekend of rest.  It was so much fun to escape as a family and enjoy the each other's company without the craziness of meetings, company, or a messy house getting in the way.  

I think we drove on the most gorgeous country roads over the weekend.  I drive on them every summer, and they still capture my attention every time I'm driving on them.  I had to pull to the side of the road to take a picture of this cornfield.  The way the morning sun was hitting the cornstalks ... and the sky was just so.  Goodness.  How ridiculous do I sound! 

 Coffee and watermelon was our diet of choice.  

 There is something about water that I just love.  It has such a calming affect on me.  I can't put my finger on it, but I am definitely a water girl.  

 I found some goodies from the garden and farm market that I am beyond excited about.  Fresh produce ... yes!  (Those blueberries may already be all gone ... )  

We discovered an old mill that was made into a coffee house in the middle of nowhere.  The owners were so incredibly nice.  I could sit on their porch for hours.  

... here's to more weekends for taking it slow, realizing simple beauty, and enjoying loved ones.

  1. We all need to do this more often... get away from the everyday demands and just SLOW down. Funny how much you can hear when you do that. Your voice, your husband's voice, and of course our heavenly Father's voice.
    Enjoy the PEACE! (and crazy about the coffee house!!!!)
