There are no words to possibly describe what a glorious day this turned out to be. I convinced my fried Kim, who is also my neighbor now just three doors down, to head to Marble Falls with us and we had an absolute blast. We live just 45 minutes from the most beautiful place in Texas, Marble Falls. Marble Falls is the center of Texas Hill Country and if you are ever traveling through Central Texas, make sure you visit the Hill Country.
More and more I realize how this 35 mile "move" we made was the biggest blessing I could have ever imagined. We live so close to so many beautiful things. We are truly living in "Central Texas" now. I can't imagine ever going back and living where we were. It's amazing how this move symbolizes so much of the beauty God is doing in our family's life. I'm so thankful for our friends Scotty And Kim (I went to High School with both of them) who I reconnected with on facebook a little over a year ago. If it were not for our friendship with this couple, we would never have known about this house that sits three doors down from them. Just last night I did not know where Jeremy was and he was down at Scotty's enjoying a beer in their drive way. I love what this cul-de-sac has brought to our life.
As for today's trip to the Strawberry Farm, I am amazed. Acres and acres of strawberries and so many huge, bright, red, luscious strawberries! You could not help but to fill up a basket. In fact, we filled up two! When we were not throwing them in the basket, we were popping them in our mouth. It was an incredible experience for me and the kids both. And you can't go to Marble Falls without stopping for a burger at Storm's! Lunch did not disappoint!
Time to head to the store for some canning jars so I can make my Strawberry preserves and you better believe I'm making homemade pound cake and homemade whipped cream for some delicious Strawberry Shortcake this weekend!
