Summer Catch-up:Louisville

About a month ago, I was able to head to Louisville to see one of my dear college friends get married!  And my parents met me there – delight.  Oh, and I got to have this little jaunt solo.  Oh my goodness, Donald dropped me off at the airport and I really didn’t know what to do with myself.  But, I was able to dig deep (hah!), and managed to enjoy being still, being quiet, enjoying a cup of coffee slowly, and read many-an-article about the Queen’s jubilee.  I’m jealous of myself just remembering it…


(my parents have these amazing peony bushes that they had moved from my grandparent’s property – they’re so beautiful and one of my favorite things about home – my sweet momma brought me a whole bouquet of them.)

I just felt so blessed by this weekend.  Blessed that I have a beautiful family in Dallas who would all rally to watch my two little beauties so I could have a weekend away / blessed that my family would drive down so that we could share some time together before another life change and share new experiences / blessed by friendship -though separated by miles and circumstances…there is something beautiful and graciously “permanent” about old, good friends.

(the beautiful bride…and oh wow, look at that big belly…is anyone surprised little fella is supposed to be bigger than Nate?!?!)

I love that there is a little group of us who capture so many memories through the food that was consumed – this is true of almost every Wallace getaway.  The food is one of the most delightful aspects of any experience.  Louisville – you did not disappoint!
