We spent friday nite and most of today with Lisa and Kevin at McMenamin’s Edgefield. It’s an old poor farm from the early 1900s that has been renovated into a whimsical hotel, complete with bed&breakfast style rooms, big soaker tubs, a winery, all sorts of pubs on campus, and all kinds of fun on its 38 acres of farmland. it was a really nice getaway. we ate a ton, talked a lot, drank the goods, laughed silly, ran quickly in the cold and wind, went to bed late, and slept in. this morning we all treated ourselves to massages, then a huge breakfast spread. now that’s what i call a really great morning!
and it didn’t end there. we went to see “Walk the Line” in the middle of the afternoon! I can’t remember the last time i saw a movie, let alone in the middle of the day. and the movie was awesome. i grew up watching The Johnny Cash Show and for some reason, i specifically remember the stage of that show and the big, swooping curtains behind him. it was always a treat to watch. that was right around the time we were watching a ton of Little House on the Prairie and it was the same year MTV came on air. i was 7.
we exchanged gifts friday nite with Lisa and Kevin, and i was lucky to receive a beautiful necklace lisa made. the girl has got some amazing talent and every time i wear one of her pieces i get compliments all day long. i love my newest piece. it’s so sweet and delicate. and i’ll cherish it always. we gave them the above pieces i made of their girls, sophia and simone. and they loved them!
it was really nice to get away. even just for a nite.
