Snapshot Sunday ~ Re Energizing ~

It's been a long couple of weeks here at our house. Kerry started a new job which requires A L O T of travel. We are talking every other week!! And it started literally a couple days after getting home from China with Rachel. I have been home with six kids by myself for weeks....in a new place with no support system. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone people.

He just got back from Paris on Saturday night and you better believe first thing Sunday afternoon Hannah and I headed out for some big girl time alone, without the Little's and no boys aloud.

First stop our favorite antique store.

On a Whim Boutique, which of course had a huge lawn sale today..



where I scored this cute little rocking chair for only $10.00~~

Next, we meandered off the beaten path and found ourselves in the mist of dream home. It's called Red Hill Farm.....


It's in the middle of no where yet still close to major things like the grocery store and schools...



Just look at the gorgeous front lawn...


and the red barn...


and the mountain view....




breathtaking...right?!?!



I thought so to, and it was for sale y'all!! and we were enjoying ourselves until Mr. Policeman rolled up behind us...apparently you can't stop in the middle of the road and start taking random pictures...even if the house is for sale.
So off we went to another favorite haunt.




The Tea Room and Antique store. Where I found a gift for a friend.




All in all a great day that I needed so very much. Considering he's leaving again next week for who knows where...




Ni Hao Y'all
