Jeremy blessed me with a trip to see my sister in Birmingham, AL and my mother in Woodstock, GA. We had so much fun. With an itinerary filled with nothing but fun coupled with time spent with family, I'd say that this trip was one for the books. Here are some highlights:

And some beautiful landscape:

I love the South for so many reasons. The culture is significantly different than the Pacific NW.  I truly enjoyed the Southern hospitality, warm greetings, wonderful service, non-judgment, and acceptance. I appreciated the history, the sense of pride and beautiful landscape. I'm so thankful to have family to visit in such wonderful cities. I'm so thankful to have a husband who saw how much I missed my family, so he took action and did something about it.

To Momma, Robert, Cali, Hannah and Nathan,

I love you all so much. Thank you for a wonderful vacation. I miss everything about seeing you everyday.
