i remember the first time jay and i went out together after leland was born we really didn’t know what to do with ourselves. i was so uptight and constantly thinking about how leland was. it was honestly, kind of awkward. what were we supposed to do? just sit there and talk about what a huge roller coaster of emotions we had just experienced by having a baby? or do we talk about how much sleep we were lacking? anywhoo, now that we are four months into this, it was such a blessing to be able to go out for a day! i have loosened up a lot and it was so much easier to just enjoy the day. i was blessed to be able to have my mom and dad watch him while we were gone.
we drove about an hour away and visited an awesome little town i love! it is only about ten minutes from the plantation where we were married so we stopped there too. (we only stayed for a couple minutes though, because it was being rented for a wedding.) there was beautiful scenery the entire drive so we stopped by some old barns and i tried to take a picture of the both of us, haha. we went to antique stores, ate lunch at a little café, and searched through a music store. it was so nice to spend the day with jay and have our own valentine’s day date a little early. here are some pictures from our day:
my attempted pictures of the both of us
the colors in old towns like these are beautiful!
love the textures and bold colors for pictures…a photographer’s dream ;)
