Soak Up the Sun~

Hubs and I just got back from a mini trip over Friday and Saturday. We had a little stay-cation. We went for a drive up through the area called the Talimena Scenic Byway. It goes up to the second highest peak in Arkansas, Queen Wilhelmina Mountain  and has lots of beautiful places to stop and take pictures along the way.  We stopped at an old pioneer cemetery, did the scenic drive , and then stayed in the hotel where we went  for our honeymoon. Then we had breakfast at the Lux Cafe where we shared our very first breakfast as husband and wife. It was early yet , so we decided we’d hit a few garage sales,  and then went to our favorite flea market. We love to do that kind of thing , because you don’t have to spend a ton of money, but there’s always a lot of neat stuff. I honestly have to say, we’re kind of a weird couple , to be so young.  We like odd junk. We live in an old house, we collect oil lamps. I have an almost fetish for vintage hardback books. I wear dresses from the 50s , 60s and 70s, and think that retro vehicles are just the bees knees. We listen to the golden oldies, and our kids are the same. Their idea of a good time  is to fill the car up with gas and go “riding around” looking for old cars, or junk shops.  So yeah. Our weekend together is the best time the hubs and I have had in a really , really long time. Thought you guys might like to see some of the pictures we took. These are just a handful of them.  If you want to visit some place really beautiful , check out Queen Wilehelmina Mountain , the town of Mena, Arkansas, and the Talimena Scenic Byway .

    1. Thanks so much! We really did have a fabulous time. I am reminded every day why Mark makes me happy, but being on trip with him alone, really emphasizes it.
