I've made two trips to Kentucky this week! Shew! That's a lot of miles...but it was worth it!
The first trip last Sunday was to my old church Southeast Christian to see Phil Wickham.
Phil is a Christian artist whose music I have really come to love and appreciate! He has such an anointing to lead worship and is lyrically gifted beyond anything I have heard recently. My friend Julie came up with me, and we spent our Monday hanging around the Highlands and Old Louisville area. We had so much fun! We met up with my sister Stephanie who was shooting some new photos for her website. I'm sure her new pics will be up on the site soon.
After hanging with Steph, Julie and I met up with my friend Heather at Lynn's Paradise Cafe.
We had a GREAT time, that place is crazy! We enjoyed some Lynn-style lunch and of course, loved the decor. It's almost visually overkill, but that is what makes it SO fun! Everywhere you look there is something to see. Every table has a ugly lamp (they have a annual ugly lamp contest!) and miniature toy dinosaurs to occupy the wait time. It is definitely something else, something to behold!
We headed down Baxter Avenue to my favorite Louisville store, the Cherry Bomb. It's a fun vintage new and used clothing store. Julie and I picked up some great hats and I got a vintage Ferrari shirt. How fun!
My second trip was on Thanksgiving Day, this time to Lietchfield (where my mom lives). We enjoyed a great Thanksgiving, complete with our new sister-in-law! My step-brother was recently married, so it's great to have another addition to the family. The guys had a shooting contest (I shot once, it's so painful!) and the girls enjoyed picking through the wedding proofs and warming our toes by the fire.
After playing some cards, we opted to go see a movie in Etown. We all agreed on August Rush, and I do say, it was amazing. When I got back to TN tonight, I actually went to go see it again! It was that good. I wish the ending was a little longer, but hey, it was great so I'll take what I can get. I absolutely loved the soundtrack; the blend of rock and classic was fantastic. I can't wait to own it!
Well, it's that time to put up the Christmas decorations! I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving!
