a day in madison.

on saturday, we spent some of the day in a small town, madison indiana. i love that place! we try to visit a couple times a year and it happened to be pretty warm this weekend so we went and walked around for a bit. we visited a cupcake shop and an antique store (and bought a couple books for leland!) i love the colors and the buildings in the town….they are all historic and gorgeous. they also have tons of little shops and antique stores so visiting is always fun :) the rest of the weekend jay and i watched the bengals playoff game, cleaned, and took a ton of vitamin c- we both have bad head colds :( hope you had a wonderful weekend! what were you up to this weekend? anything exciting? ¬†have a blessed monday!!


LOVE LOVE!!!(= <333

This post made me smile. I love Madison and lived there for 15 years; moved just two months ago because of work, to South Carolina. I miss my beautiful little town along the river. ;)


Madison Indinana? Tom and I after your wedding weekend, stayed there for our Anniversary, right after we left Milan. Ran in the horrible pouring rain to get into our hotel room….was fun, we were soaking wet! The hotel overlooked the bridge and had a private balcony….too high up for anyone to see us that evening and with coffee in the morning. Memory I’ll never forget Terra.

Lovely photos!


Isn’t Madison near Hanover College or am I thinking of some place else? I heard it’s very pretty though!! But you already captured that in your pictures!

Your pictures are always breathtaking!

I love your fashion style, it is so beautiful and classic and old fashioned.
I don’t think I could pull it off but looks great on you.

love your pictures and your dress is so beautiful!!

I love, love, love your dress. So cute!

I love the little town of Madison … it’s been awhile since we’ve been there, and I hope we can make it sometime soon. I love all their little shops! These are such sweet images! Y’all are just so cute! Hope you both get to feeling better soon … thankfully, I’ve made it through so far, but hubby has a very nasty head cold now, too! :(

That area looks absolutely beautiful. Love the door and garage. You are such a beautiful family.

Look at that peter rabbit book! So precious! I collect old winnie the pooh books and have several very old ones from my mom’s childhood. So special and can’t wait to give them to my future children!

Your family is beautiful! God bless!
