I realize how spoiled we were by our recent vacation, but another part of me can’t stress enough how much we needed this day away. The coming weekend is our third in a row filled with non-stop stuff going on, so we relished in the idea of taking Monday off with no real plans, no obligations, and no work stresses or worries. Nothing but compelling conversation, exploring (there was a ton of great texture to see), and eating our fill of some majorly tasty food. Despite the rain and being too terrified of the 4 golden orb weavers we came across to spend more time along our beloved Saluda River, Columbia was good to us. I vote every week starts out like this.
