Food For My Soul

I spent the last year putting most of my energy into recovering from my barn accident last April. I am finally doing really well. Some days I still have a limp, but I am trying hard to walk without one. I am not totally “there” yet, but I think each month is bringing me to my desired goal. The one thing I missed most this last year was a “girls trip”. I spent days and days dreaming about going away with friends. This week I finally got to take a short two day trip with friends. I feel like a brand new person. This little trip definitely did the trick and I am again filled with joy and energy.

Our road trip provided us with beautiful wildflowers along the way. That alone filled me with happiness. I love my wildflowers. These Indian Blankets were scattered along the way and made our drive totally enjoyable.

We spent the first day shopping. I found this fun pop maker. Will let you know how it works. It is simple and was very inexpensive so think it will be fun. I know the kiddos will be glad I purchased it!


Our hotel had beautiful scenery. Woke up to this gorgeous view. Sat on the patio and watched birds for an hour. So warm, quiet and relaxing.

Lake Bird

The weather was perfect for catching a few sun rays. The pool was too cold to swim, but we sat by the hot tub which was plenty warm and large enough to at least enjoy some water fun!


We enjoyed our pool time with a margarita and queso/chips! Perfect…

Queso & Chips

It is amazing how a short trip with friends can give you such a boost. You just cannot under estimate the value of a girls road trip to feed your soul…

  1. Would love to have that pop maker for summertime! YUM! Wanted to let you know I nominated you for the Liebster Award! Can’t wait to see your answers!

  2. Girls trips are the BEST….especially when there are margaritas and queso involved. So glad that you were able to get away for a couple of days. The photos are beautiful –

  3. I’m so glad you got to have a little ‘vaca’ w/ the girls! I have never seen the Indian Blankets before…they are lvely and so colorful! Remind me of gerber daisies and something else (can’ remember). Would really like to have some for the nature park across from our house. Can you buy the seeds?

      Yes, you can find the seeds. I looked this year and have not found any. They are native to most states so you might ask your garden center. A few years ago they had them at one of the centers here as landscapers are starting to include them in gardens. Guess they are not just wildflowers anymore!

  4. I am so glad to hear you are feeling better and wherever you went, it looks AWESOME! What a great time for you.

  5. Yum to that food & those flowers are beautiful, looks like an amazing trip.

  6. Yeah! So glad you could have your time away! Girlfriends like that are priceless!
