Gone Fishing.




On Sunday afternoon I got home and my dad asked me to drive him to the rental car place to pick up a car so that he could go on a retreat. I started driving and I was talking to him how much I need to go on a retreat soon too...and he was like "Why don't you just come and get a cabin too??" so I started thinking about it and decided what better time than now?? I LOVE living on the edge like this! It totally keeps life exciting! So we headed out Sunday night for Starved Rock State Park. It's so gorgeous out here! Even in the dead of winter! (the pics above are some I grabbed off their website, cause I forgot to bring my card reader!) I got my own little one bedroom cabin and it's great!! Just to have a time to get away, get quiet, read, pray, and evaluate goals and ideas:) I'll be back tomorrow revived and energized for the new year!!

I love you all!! Have a wonderful day!
