The past few days...

While on a whirlwind trip to NW Arkansas, I had the privilege of meeting up with Kelly.

This has to be one of my favorite highlights in blogging so far!

Ya'll...she is one of the sweetest bloggers I know.

I feel blessed to call her my friend.

(Maddy & Hollis)

A few years back, Kelly & her family became a household name in our home.

I can remember Maddy, my youngest, asking everyday about Harper.

                      We prayed for Harper's health and welcomed sweet Hollis into our hearts.

You can only imagine the excitement in our car when Maddy found out we were going to meet up!

She is still talking about it :)

We played board games.

How cute is this!

 And loved on family.

 Did I mention horses?

Marc's cousin has one horse and one donkey.

I still can't believe we were able to pull her home..ha!

She has asked us about 1000x....

Can we pleaseeeee move to Arkansas?

Marc just smiles....BIG.

Speaking of smiles...
Trying to take one good shot..

just one was all we needed

Ok...maybe next trip..ha!

The hard part..

Saying goodbye to a loved one.

Never easy.

Marc's cousin passed away last Sunday.

What a precious soul Heaven now holds.

  1. You were almost in my neck of the woods. (Carthage, MO) I've been to the store where that big chair is sitting out front. Fun place, Oops! They have some great deals. You just never know what you will find.
    We can't ever go there without a couple of pics in the chair. Glad you had a good time.

  2. Susie, What a sweet post. Sad occasion brought you to Arkansas but I was so happy you got to meet Kelly and Hollis! I think the pic of Maddy and Hollis is so sweet!

    And I knew where that big chair was too! Love to comb through that store to see if I can find a treasure!

    Maddy looks quite at home in her Razorback shirt!
    Yes, I think moving to Ark sounds like a great idea!
