It was an absolute joy to be with so many visionary families that believe children are a blessing from the Lord!
This was my first Above Rubies conference, and it was wonderful! Ms. Nancy Campbell spoke to the women about the BLESSINGS of their roles as mothers, wives, and daughters. I also got to meet her daughter and grand-daughters, who were so sweet, and blessed us with lovely music! One of the young mothers there recognised me and asked if I had a blog; It was so encouraging to talk and meet with her--I'm amazed how the internet can connect those who are of like-mind!
Yesterday was my 18th Birthday, and my parents surprised me with a road-trip to the living history museum, Seabrook Village!
Located near Savannah, we were blessed with lovely weather and we received a personal tour!
The one-room schoolhouse... As we walked inside, I closed my eyes for a moment and imagined this room over 100 years ago--The echo of the hardwood floors, the sun beaming through the opened shutters, the handmade brooms..even the discipline switch! I felt like even the walls had a story to tell :)
It was a small area filled with reminders of humble beginnings :)
Of course, who can travel that far to the coast and not visit the city? :) So we drove through historic Savannah and visited a few shops! Ps) Don't forget, I was wearing my prairie dress! LOL
Luckily, there were so many eccentrics around, I could pass as "artistic" ;)
An employee prepares sweetened pecans...I enjoyed watching the process in action, I think more places should do this, because you're more encouraged to purchase fresh confections!
