In my last blog, I shared with you my travels to California and promised to take you with me to the next destination.
After landing in Detroit on Monday night, I slept one short night in my own bed before leaving early the next morning for a drive to Knoxville, TN.
My daughter Jillian was on break from vet school in St. Kitts and was in the States to be with her husband Andy. (Complicated, I know!) We shopped, dined, and played tourist for a few days before I drove her north so that she could fly out of Detroit to return to school.
The Smokey Mountains are gorgeous:
We even took a hike to visit my Falls!
But it was wonderful to see Andy, Jillian, and ‘grand-dog’ Roy:
Fun fun fun four days!
And THEN after returning Friday night to MI from TN … we took Jillian to the airport at 4am and headed to Grand Rapids to see daughter Kristen and her husband Ric. We had a marvelous day ‘playing’ around Grand Rapids. I didn’t take any photos that day except for a pic of the ‘grand-cat’ Oliver:
Sunday was a sailing day and Monday was laundry laundry laundry!
I was pooped 🙂
Seeing friends is great – spending time with family is better than great!
Sorry to not be blogging about more spiritual or meaningful subjects. I’ve been distracted and vacationing. I just wanted to share it with you!
Hope y’all are doing well now that we have to bid summer farewell and get into the fall routine. Just a reminder that bible studies are starting up at St. Paul Church in Trenton … I know it’s hard to take the time … so you must MAKE time and meet us at the Panera at West and Allen on Saturday mornings at 8am for the Saturday Morning Women’s Drop-in Bible Study. Just show up for a lesson and fellowship (and a coffee and a bagel).
grace and peace to you,
