This weekend was so wonderful. After some traveling for work during the week, Jenny and I decided to spend the weekend together to have girl time and do some major planning. On Friday, I took pictures of my sweet sister for her senior year homecoming dance. Afterward, Jenny and I went to San Francisco Coffee in Atlanta to talk about Maiedae and make some exciting plans for our goals. Before we knew it, 4 or so hours had passed and they were closing. Even though we were tired, we felt so refreshed and energized about our intense brainstorming time.

We picked a couple things up from the grocery store, went back to my place, made tea, and watched The Hunger Games. On Sunday morning, we baked these yummy muffins that turned out delicious, but I think next time I'll try and put together a topping...Jenny suggested a honey butter which sounds SO good. We took pictures, did a little shopping, made a yummy dinner and wrapped up the evening with our ladies book study. I'm so thankful for all of the precious and uplifting women in my life!

Since Jon was busy this whole weekend as well, we are in need of some major husband and wife time. We're definitely planning a little down time this week and maybe a couple dates. :)
