My cup runneth over...

For a long time I have wanted to come and enjoy a full week at the Fredericksburg ranch.  In my opinion it is heaven on earth.  It's approx. 200 acres of pure perfection and I could not love any place more.  Josh's family has owned it for over 20 years and his best memories are from this little utopia. 

When Josh and I started planning for our 3 year anniversary I knew exactly what I wanted...a week at the ranch.  I knew it wouldn't be possible to steal my husband away for a full week because of work and commitments, but I thought I could at least try to get him there for multiple days.  We made our plans, I put in my vacation request, and God smiled upon us.  We packed up this past weekend, coordinated some house watching and Pug watching with my mom, and loaded the big dogs and a lot of fishing gear and sunscreen in the truck. 

Waking up here this week has made me appreciate even more how blessed Josh and I are.  God has covered us in love and sunshine and it's only Tuesday.  Do we deserve this?  No.  Do I stand in awe of this blessed place that God created?  Yes.  Total awe.   

It's truly been amazing and it's just Tuesday.  Tuesday. 

If you can't hear the glee and joy in my voice, I'm not sure what else to say.  I'm not sure how else to express it. 

There's an old Robert Earl Keen song that says, "it feels so good feelin' good again."  That is what I keep playing over and over again in my head.  Along with the Christian song that goes,  "blessings and honor and glory and power forever to our God."  What a mix...Robert Earl and Rebecca St. James together.  Makes me smile...

My cup runneth over.  Truly.

On a side note...there is no internet access at the ranch so I had to come into town to write this.  It just so happens that The Fredericksburg Bakery happens to have WIFI.  It also happens that they sell my favorite all time pastry...their very own German pretzel.  To say that it is to die for is a true understatement.  It's time for me to run...and go play.  My sis-in-law is meeting me for a little power shopping. 

A few pics to enjoy from our Monday here...

Love to you all!
