Things Are Looking Up

T-minus 2 days until I am officially on Spring Break!  There is no doubt in my mind that teachers look more forward to vacation time than the kids.  Don't get me wrong.  We love the little boogers, but, sometimes, we need a break.  You know the old saying, "Distance makes the heart grow fonder?"  It couldn't be more true.  I always feel like I come back from Spring Break a better teacher, pumped and ready to end the year strong.  Let's hope this year is no different!!

I'm linking up with Jamie from This Kind of Love again for What I'm Loving Wednesday and with Michelle at The Vintage Apple for Oh, How Pinteresting!

This week, I'm loving the fact that I've planned a last minute trip to Atlanta to hangout with two of my favorite people over Spring Break!  We don't have a ton of things planned to do, yet.  Mostly, we'll just be enjoying each other's company.  Plus, I'll get to spend car time with my best friend there and back.  Traveling in the car with her is half the fun!  Can't wait!!

We do have plans to visit Stone Mountain one day.

I'm also loving that my mom and I are going to take a day trip one day next week to Pebble Hill Plantation in Thomasville, Georgia.  I've been before and talked it up so much that she decided she had to see it for herself.  The house is nice and fun to tour, but the property and barn are what really drew me in.  It's a really popular place to hold weddings, and, although I'm no where close, a girl can dream a little, right?

I'm loving that the plans for my friend Karen's baby shower are coming together perfectly!  Here are a few inspiration pictures:

Finally, I'm loving that this little blog is giving me the opportunity to get to know some truly wonderful ladies!  Y'all make my heart so happy!!  Through this community, I've managed to gain prayer partners, learn travel tips, get much-needed advice, and receive encouragement in my walk with Christ.  Thank you so much to all of you that are on this journey with me.  And, if you're not yet, I'd love to have you tag along!!
