Thankful Thursday: Friends (& a Hocking Hills Photo Dump)

Well guys, October is almost over. Did the month seem to go by really fast for anyone else? There just didn't seem to be enough time for everything I wanted to do. If I'm being honest, it's been a bit of a rough month. But I won't get into all that. I'm just looking forward to being busy and being with friends and family for pretty much every weekend the rest of the year.

Speaking of friends, that's what I'm thankful for today!
Last weekend, Pearson and I went to Hocking Hills and stayed in a cabin with several close friends. Eight adults, one toddler, and two babies all under one roof! It was a blast!

This coming weekend, a friend of ours from Harding who was in our wedding is coming to visit. He's interviewing for grad schools and it just works out that he'll be in the area for the weekend and needs a place to stay.

The weekend after that, Pearson will be away at a conference.

The weekend after that, I will be in Nashville with my bff, Ashley for a girls' weekend!

The weekend after that, Pearson and I are going back to Hocking Hills to stay in a cabin as just the two of us.

The weekend after that is Thanksgiving and we'll be in Harrison, Arkansas with my mom's side of the family.

Then comes December. December isn't quite as full as of right now. But, "A Fairy Tale Christmas Carol" runs on the second weekend (I'm playing Cinderella). This means that weekend will be super busy with 4 shows but also, that whole week leading up to the performances will be super crazy with dress rehearsals and tech stuff.

Also, you know, Christmas and New Years. We'll be in three different places in the Atlanta area, as well as Valdosta and Memphis during that week and a half.

So yes, we will be busy. But I am so excited. I've felt a little isolated lately. I think we've sort of isolated ourselves. Or at least I have. I've been depressed and a symptom of that is not every wanting to see anybody or do anything. But now I'm making myself do stuff and I'm actually looking forward to it!

Friends are the greatest. They are so important to our mental health and wellness. God created us humans as relational beings. We need to connect with others. We need to be needed. There's not much of a better feeling than knowing you have friends who have your back.

And it's so good to have fun sometimes, you know? All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, right? Friends help us do that.

So anyway, today for Thankful Thursday, I am so thankful for friends. Old friends. New friends. Lasting friends. Deep friends. All of them!

And now, a photo dump from our Hocking Hills trip!
The boys. And the babies. Can you see Elizabeth on Doug's back?
The Girls.
I had to add another of the boys and babies because Pearson's laughing face cracks me up. Pure joy!
