Next stop: St. Augustine


Yesterday we went to St. Augustine for our final day away.  First we got up in the morning and headed back downtown to the river in Savannah for some last minute shopping (more about that later) and then on to St. Augustine where we took a trolley tour of the city and ate at a pharmacy.  Yes, I'm serious.  A pharmacy, for real.  It was amazing!!!  I had one of the best sandwiches I have EVER had in my life.  This is Candy and Eddie's favorite place to eat there and I can see why.

Another great thing we saw was the love tree.  It's a special tree in St. Augustine where a palm tree is growing right through an oak tree.  How amazing is that?!  I love this little cafe -- particularly the colors that are the same colors as my bedroom and bathroom at home.  These colors just delight and calm me.  Imagine a whole house like this?  Charming to say the least.

As previously mentioned, we went back to the river in Savannah before heading to St. Augustine because Candy wanted to go there.  I just putzed around a little bit here and there along with her and then we went and got on the road to our next destination.  I never realized until we got home to Tampa why we stopped there beyond just one time for sentiment's sake.  Once we got home she came into my  house and said, "here, I have something for you..." and gave me a bag and it contained...THE PURSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Yes, the pink and black all things animal print purse that is so amazing.  She got it for me for my birthday.  She said, "you  know, I knew you thought it was too much and were not going to spend it on yourself...and wanted you to have it.  Happy birthday, my friend..."  WOW.  I am so blessed.

St. Augustine is Candy and Eddie's favorite city to visit and  they showed us all the reasons they love it so much and I was pretty impressed.  I'll post more photos of it when I'm not so tired.

It's going to be a great day at Celebration Church!  I'm believing for miracles in the house and I'm coming expecting, not hesitating!!  God can do anything and I believe He will meet the needs of those present in His house today.  Most of all I look forward to the opportunity to bless HIM and to also bless OTHERS.

As mentioned previously if Jordan does indeed ship out on Tuesday, this is his last Sunday with us.  I don't even want to really go there in my mind about it.  Yes, I know God is in control.  Yes, I know this will be good for him.  Yes, I know everything happens for a reason.  Yes, I know he will receive great training and benefits in the military.  Yes, I know God cares about him even more than I do.  Yes, I know it will be alright and I shouldn't be worried or even concerned.

But I'm a Mom.

Enough said.
