We're back!

Bernie and I are back from vacation. Well, it's good to be back and great to be on this blog. I want to thank Julia for guest posting. Yes, I have read two of those books and adore them so please check them out. Read what Julia said below about good Christian fiction.

I'm going to post some pictures later, but here's a short outline of our trip. We drove for awhile to TN, went past Nashville. The next day we saw the mountains and met a friend in NC.... then went back again to Columbia, SC. (I've never been to those states. They were awesome)

From there, we traveled to Savannah, GA. It was amazing. There were these huge oak trees that shaded everything. It was a lot hotter than what we're use to, but that was one of the only cons. And the best part was...

THE OCEAN! We'd never seen the ocean so this was a big deal for us. It was beautiful. We even watched the sun go down. It didn't set over the ocean, but it reflected off the water, making it breath-taking. We went there three times. Okay, let's just say it wasn't the best visit because of the jellyfish. Apparently they're very bad over there. We all got stung, along with many other visitors. Using our "Video Star" app, Bernie and I made a video at the ocean of "All of Me", a amazing song by John Legend, perfect for the pretty beach.

We did many things in Savannah, including going on a Dolphin Tour. The dolphins were awesome. On the way home, we stopped at Atlanta and Nashville. I didn't get to see Taylor Swift, but it was still a great city. I walked in the Bridgestone Arena, where many of my favorite artists have played. I got a TS mini calendar... heehee.

Yes, perhaps some of you have heard Taylor Swift's new song. Personally, I don't think it's one of her bests, but I love the message. I'll probably post more thoughts on the song. She's pop now.

I read Captives by Jill Williamson. Wow, that's an awesome book. It might be just as good as the Blood of Kings trilogy, (another thing Julia talked about in her guest post) I MUST read the next book. I also got two new books at Lifeway. Soul Surfer by Bethany Hamilton. You've probably heard of her... and a book by one of my favorite Christian authors, Melody Carlson.

Thank you for taking time to read this rambling post. I promise it will be more interesting when I get around to posting pictures. Thank you, God, for all the beauty in Your creation.

In Christ,


  1. I'm glad you had such a great trip! I live in Upstate SC, maybe you went kinda by where we were. If you were on Interstate 85 then you went right by us! If not, then, ah, you were still pretty close. =D That is so cool that you got to see the ocean! Isn't it simply beautiful?!!! Those dolphins sound super cool! I'm glad to have you back! =D I missed you!!!


    1. Thank you! We were in Columbia. I'm not sure if that's near you. I missed you too and I'm so glad to be back. The ocean was amazing!:)
