We are home from vacation...

We just got home yesterday from vacation. Well, we called it a vacation. It’s actually a conference, but our family enjoys it so much that we call it a vacation.

Every summer for 8 years now, we’ve gone to the Pastor’s School hosted by Beeson Divinity School at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. We stay in the dorms on campus (major flash back to college days), we eat in the campus cafeteria (yes, I ate waaaaaayyyy too much this week!!!) and we get to attend many workshops and hear different pastors share their heart. But the best part is that we get to meet up with the many dear friends that we have made over the years that we’ve attended the conference. We only see them once a year, but it always seems like we saw them just yesterday. Don’t you just LOVE friends like that?

Anyway, we are home and happy to be back. Nothing beats your own bed and getting back to your normal routine of life. Do you know I actually missed vacuuming? HA!! I’ve done a ton of laundry since we returned last night- I had NO idea we had that many clothes!

It’s nice getting away for a bit, but there is nothing like being in this house that we have made into our home. How blessed I am.

Welcome back! It sounds like you all had a great time but I agree with you about your own bed feeling wonderful!

I had to laugh at this post. Before we had kids, this was how my husband and I spent our vacation time. We went to many, many conferences and have made some wonderful friends. Now my husband will sometimes still go but I stay home with the kids. He just recently asked if I would like to go to one in November. I told him I think not because I will be 9 months along by that time and I have not desire to travel far!

Thanks for visiting our blog!
