Back to The Hills

by Brittany on August 19, 2013

Hey friends!

This weekend, Luvy and I were in our home state of Tennessee for a wedding and to see family and friends.

I had a nasty cough for most of the weekend, so I didn’t get out as much as I would have liked, but it was still a marvelous weekend.

Besides, there is no place like the hills of East Tennessee to help you feel better.  ;)

Marvelous is: 

Eating Thai with Luvy’s parents.  Even more marvelous is when his mother asks me to take a picture of her food too!  :)

We ate at Thai Basil.  They were very accommodating to make sure everything was gluten and soy free.

Thai Palace on Urbanspoon

Can you guess which one is mine??

Marvelous is:

Getting to watch Luvy play the piano in the mornings.

… and hearing him play for April to sing at the wedding.

I could listen to those two all day long!

Marvelous is:

Getting all dressed up for the wedding

and hanging out with friends who we never get enough time with.

Marvelous is:

Getting to worship with First Baptist Sevierville where Luvy worked in college and see everyone, including Luvy’s mentor Scott Andrews.

Scott’s daughter was the bride at the wedding, and it meant the world to Luvy that they asked him to come back to be the pianist for her wedding.

It was marvelous to hear Dan Spencer preach.  He has become my favorite East Tennessee pastor.  (and I’m not just saying that because he happens to read my blog!  I mean it!)

You can just tell that God has given him a heart for people and that he really cares about you as an individual.  We have only been around him a couple times, and I feel like I’ve known him for years.

I might have been a bit under the weather, but it was still marvelous to be in East Tennessee.

Happy Marvelous in My Monday friends!

What is marvelous in your Monday?

So sorry that you aren’t feeling great (especially on a trip!). Glad you were able to see some old friends and family.
Marvelous today is my husband’s birthday!!!


Heidi @ Idlehide August 19, 2013 at 10:01 am

catching up with friends is always marvelous, and at a wedding to boot.
Marvelous today is being off work with Kenny, getting a good run in, and going to pick out a new vehicle!
My computer is finally back, so it’s great being able to catch up on your blog again:) I’ve missed you!


Brittany August 25, 2013 at 2:17 pm

New vehicle?? Whoa! Yes.. I have missed you! I’ve been such a bad blog reader lately. Life is NUTS! ;) Can we run away to Cali already?


Heidi @ Idlehide August 19, 2013 at 10:03 am

Boo… I just commented, but it seems to have disappeared. Anyway, sounds like an awesome weekend you had:)


Brittany August 25, 2013 at 2:18 pm

for some reason it is making me approve comments… and I’m very behind on it!


Giselle@myhealthyhappyhome August 19, 2013 at 10:10 am

Sounds like a great weekend except for the nasty cough. I was fighting off a cold this weekend too and had a not so great Saturday. Summer colds are no fun!


Audrey @ In Shape Cupcake August 19, 2013 at 10:27 am

I love your dress! Looks like a marvelous weekend! I had a pretty good weekend, the weather was perfect! Felt like early October! So definitely got my running in, celebrated my brothers bday, and went to church (another great sermon on why Jesus ate with sinners)


Brittany September 2, 2013 at 12:09 pm

I just heard a great sermon on that too!


Sarah @ The Smart Kitchen August 19, 2013 at 2:23 pm

What a beautifully marvelous weekend! One of these weekends will have to be a GIRLS weekend…because when you go to Tennessee you are just that much closer to me. ;)


Brittany September 2, 2013 at 12:10 pm

You tell me when, and I’ll be there… I just won’t wear crimson… won’t do it! :)


Michelle @ 3cheaprunners August 19, 2013 at 3:10 pm

What a great weekend to reconnect with friends!


Lisa August 19, 2013 at 3:32 pm

Sounds like a lovely weekend for you guys!
Except for the fact that you’re not feeling the best – get better asap!


Paige @ Your Trainer Paige August 19, 2013 at 5:11 pm
