what's better than a girls' weekend, my friends?
last weekend my mom & aunt roxie surprised my grandma with a fun girls' weekend to branson in honor of her first wedding anniversary without grandpa.
you & i both know this, loss is just so hard. in the most ordinary & simple moments, i think of grandpa & fight back the tears. yet in our grief, we are reminded to soak up every bit of life's goodness so i jumped at the opportunity to spend a weekend with my favorite people.
oh y'all, we shopped! we also treated ourselves to pedicures & enjoyed dinner at the keeter center - an amazing farm to table restaurant at the college of the ozarks. we cried & we equal parts laughed. we made some sweet memories & lordy, we took our share of selfies.
as annie dillard said so well, "how we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives."
