So...A Weekend Away

Even though Thanksgiving is officially over, there are still a few more days left in this month of gratitude, and I will take advantage.

Today I am thankful for wonderful friends. This weekend reminded me of that more than ever.
We were able to get away for a few days this weekend and head south to visit some of our most favorite people.  It was a very nice, much needed, change of pace and break.  It was so refreshing to get away from the junk in our daily lives that doesn't really matter and enjoy some things that really do - like time with family and dear friends.

We had such a good time visiting, playing, watching movies, playing Minecraft, and hiking in the Valley of Fire.  The kids played like crazy and we loved every minute.

I am so thankful for friends. 
Life-long friends. 
The kind of friends that you can pick up after a year of not seeing each other and it feels like no time has passed at all.  The kind of friends that feel like family.  That you can be yourself around and feel completely comfortable - no judgement, comparison, or competition.  The kind of friends that you can just sit and do nothing together and still have a great time. 
I can't even tell you how much I needed some friend time like this.

I really am so thankful for these wonderful friends of ours - and that they let us come visit them :)

That does look like so much fun. And what great weather!!

We've got some heavy rain starting and sticking around for a few days - as it moves on maybe it will bring some White Christmas your way ;-)
