As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Weekend Snapshots: Just Us Girls

On Friday, Ron and Kati pulled out of the driveway for a long weekend away, leaving Bekah and me with several days to hang out together. 

Among our activities...
Pet sitting for Kristin and family who were also away
First ever manicures
North and South
Slowness...x 2
Window shopping
Birthday shopping
Late nights
Good eats
Cooking together
Michael Card concert via YouTube
Sunday afternoon lunch with Gammy

We missed Ron and Kati, and texted and chatted and exchanged pictures all weekend. And we were slightly envious of their weekend (a mix of attending a Michael Card conference and visiting with Ryan and family). But I am thankful for our own weekend of girl time and memory-making. I love this precious girl who is growing into a beautiful young woman. She is a gift to me. 


  1. What fun you had. Sometimes it's nice to have just two and spend time together. Especially as they start to grow up. I know Ron and Kati had fun, too. Can't wait to hear about their special time.


  2. How wonderful for you and Bekah to have time for just the two of you, Cheryl. Memory making moments for both of you! Your collage tells a story of great times shared. ♥

  3. How nice to have concentrated time with just one! I think it's time for us to pull out North and South and watch that again. Have a great week! Now I'm going to go eat something after looking at all your great food photos!

  4. What a fun weekend that must have been for both sets of you! One on one time is such a great way to create new memories that will always be remembered. Whatever it was that you cooked there looks awfully good!

  5. What a lovely time you two had, creating precious memories of time well spent together.

    Have a great week ~ FlowerLady

  6. You filled a lot into that girl weekend, and I like the "slowness x 2!" Lots of good times to remember for you all.

  7. Oh what an interesting weekend! Nice to have the time together. Now how is it that you two didn't also go? Nosy me.

  8. It's always fun to have time with just one child! It sounds like a lovely time!
