To our friends scattered to and fro,
The last several weeks have been a whirlwind of moving boxes, special moments, and as many Alexander cuddles as possible.
We enjoyed one last sunset from Debs back porch…
Took time off to slip over the mountain into Brandywine to eat at the Brandywine Family Dining… (formerly known as The Cabin) (Locals, we had a great experience here.)
A neighbor hosted a barn party. Growing up, their fam was exactly the same age as us, and we were back and forth through the fields constantly. We’ve added a few to our numbers, but the friendship is just as sweet.
Em and Mr John E pulled out the guitars and had a captive audience. Precious Memories indeed.
Deb and I had been attempting to eat at the Magpie Diner for a year now… and because a blessed rain changed our chopping plans>>thus affecting the time of departure>>we squeaked it in at the 11.59th hour. Baby A’s face speaks for us all.
And before we knew it, the last box was loaded and we were off.
Our convoy sailed down the road-spirits were mostly high and the 2-way chatter was constant. 13 hours later, we pulled into We Care rejoicing.
Lots of people showed up to help unload and piles of food rolled in the door and the warm welcome we received wasn’t just from the southern summer humidity.
Even the neighbors dog extended a hearty welcome. (Ricochet, the yellow lab can’t believe the southern hospitality 😂)
The before mentioned guitar party ended with “Blest Be the Tie That Binds” and I’ll admit those words keep coming back to me…
When we are called to part,
it gives us inward pain;
but we shall still be joined in heart,
and hope to meet again.
Blessed be the tie that binds
Our hearts in Christian love;
The fellowship of kindred minds
Is like that to that above.
Blessings to y’all,
The flowers of the south land 🥰
Alexander’s nursery had the most gigantic giraffe on the wall… with a bit of help we got it moved too. 😅 enjoy your new room, Sweet Baby A ❤️
And finally, I’ll spare you all the glowing report… but I’m super thankful for my supportive Ben Friend.
