This past Wednesday, I was able to take a day trip with my mom and Mrs. Andrea, her good friend from church. Mrs. Andrea has a mountain/lake house in Clayton, GA right by Lake Burton (fitting, don't ya think?!).
On the way up, we stopped at The Dillard House for lunch. This is a family style, all-you-can-eat, southern food restaurant. They bring all the food to your table and you eat until you can't eat no more!

more southern than that.

Her house is absolutely beautiful and has a gorgeous view.

I thought this idea was genius. Hang lanterns and candles from a ladder for a perfect centerpiece on the porch.
I will have a hanging bed in my house one day. Even if I have to
force someone kindly ask someone to make it for me.
Some of our good friends, the Turners, were staying at the house for the week. I absolutely LOVE them! Michael was our music pastor a few years back. He and his sweet wife, Heather, have a little boy who is almost two. Oh.my.word. he is precious. He is a ball of energy for sure.
We had so much fun catching up on life and just enjoying each others company. We are definitely going to get together again soon!
