You know, that would be a cute title if I had a picture of Aubie cooking something while we were in Rome this weekend, but alas. I have no picture, so its just a corny way to put our destination in the title of my post. We had a lovely time there, though. I was afraid that I had planned the trip very poorly--I wasn't going to get to see Hannah, I had to change plans about when my friends and I were going to get together (Friday night instead of Saturday), and I didn't know if I wanted to go all by myself to the wedding that I had specifically gone to Rome to attend. But I was only 15 minutes late on Friday night (thank goodness Atlanta traffic wasn't as horrible as it usually is on Fridays) and we had such a fun time! I just love Christmas traditions (this was our 5th annual)! Then I made up my mind that I didn't mind going alone to a wedding--though I would have loved to dance in Ford Dining Hall at Berry College with the fire in the fireplace and all the Christmas decorations, and the beautiful Christmas music, and... oh, well. The wedding was really pretty. I loved, loved, loved the bride's dress and veil--both had red accents to go along with the Christmas theme. Just beautiful! And then Sunday, at church, as always, I enjoyed it so much. Just about every time we visit the River Church, I just get so blessed by either the music, or the message. This Sunday, it was the message. A weekend that I thought I had planned amiss, God had planned out perfectly. It really was just an awesome visit all the way around.
So, here are a few pics. This candid of me and my Credit Union friends (and Natalie's daughter) turned out better than the real one, so that's why I put it on here.
And then Aubie and Granny and Great Granny (David's grandmother). We had such a good visit with her too!
And then, at the top, another levy picture, but this time of David and Aubie. That is such an awesome hill to climb! This time, I wore my combat boots, and walked right up there : )
