Alrighty…speaking of people I love, I got to spend the weekend in Nashville with Erika and 1200 other amazing Christian mamas at the Dot Mom conference. Goodness! It was so much fun!
Not only did I get to see so many of my sweet friends, I was able to meet so many new ones. The best part though…was the encouragement I received about motherhood and marriage during the weekend. Between the speakers during the general sessions and the breakout classes I attended, I felt very blessed by what everyone had to say.
Erika and I left early, early on Friday morning and flew to Nashville. We landed, rented a car and drove to Hendersonville. Dot Mom started at 1:00 and we were there right on time (well, first we ate some yummy Mexican food and then we were there right on time!).
The conference broke at 5:30 for dinner and we met Ashley, Kelly, Jenn, Laurie and Heather for dinner. It was Jenn’s birthday, so we celebrated! We especially celebrated because on Jenn’s birthday last year, she had just been diagnosed with cancer and shaved her head on her last birthday. Praise the Lord she is in remission!!
After dinner, we went back for the evening session. By the time we returned to the hotel at 9:30, Erika and I were beat! It had been a long (but very rewarding) day!
We’re ready to go on Day 2!! I love spending time with my sweet friend :).
Kelly and I took a selfie before worship began that morning.
After the morning session and the breakout session, the conference broke for lunch at 12:30. At this time, Erika and I decided to head out to Franklin, TN for some shopping and eating.
Pie in Franklin. Oh mercy…it was delicious!
We shopped and ate our way through Franklin before returning to Hendersonville for dinner and a movie. We got back to our hotel around 10:30, went to sleep and were up at 4:45 to catch our flight back to Dallas.
I got home at 10:30 (while Andrew and the kiddos were at church) and the house was spotless, the laundry done and two sweet notes were left for me. After church, I met them for lunch and then we came home, napped in front of the TV, ate cookies and stayed in our comfy clothes all day. I love spending time with my girlfriends but there is no where on earth I would rather be than at home with my family.
