We are loving our time in Alabama. It has been so fun being back at Maxwell AFB, where David did all of his training just one year ago. Being in a city that offers independent restaurants, small boutiques, amazing antique stores and history around every corner.

On an after dinner walk in the Old Cloverdale District, we found this old school that is for sale...it would be a dream to buy it and renovate to it's original glory.

Saturday we went just 45 minutes outside of Montgomery to a beautiful hiking trail that wraps through the forest and down to a gorgeous lake.

Such a fun surprise to see these fantastic lakeside homes...

While David has been in class I have enjoyed seeing the sights, hunting for treasures (watch for a post on where those little finds fit into our home, coming soon), going to the gym, golfing at the driving range, and best of all was this week I drove to Prattville for high tea.

I spent a perfect morning browsing through this sweet little historic town before settling into the beautiful parlor of a historic B & B for high tea. I munched on fabulous scones with lemon curd and clotted cream while I tried various flavors of tea.

The proprietors were fantastic people, who gave me a tour and showed me all of the amazing work they have done reinventing this home from the 1800's. Just another one of the many great days we have spent in this sweet home, Alabama.



David and I were so lucky to have our families come to town to watch the Oregon Ducks play LSU. Here is our amazing weekend in Dallas (tailgating and hanging out at the hotel) and Wichita Falls (enjoying time in our home and around the city):

It was amazing to connect with my childhood friend, Elizabeth. She is such a strong and faith filled woman, I always leave our time together encouraged and full of joy!

We felt so lucky to have The Foxes come to our home

We were so blessed to have my parents here for a few extra days, it was so hard to say goodbye!
