heflin.

sam's birthday wish every year is to spend the weekend in heflin, alabama with grammy and lynndaddy and the woods. he spends hours packing up all of his essential shooting equipment, throws his favorite tee shirts in a bag, and matilda and i just try and keep up. sam truly comes alive in heflin. the first day it rained and rained and he couldn't get easy, he needed to be outside. sunday he made up for it by spending just about every second there. grammy and i cooked and read while lynndaddy and sam spent their day in the meadow. matilda and guinness ran free. it was wonderful. i feel so recharged. no internet, no phone (except for a few text messages) and only the sounds of rain and gun fire...










matilda loved lynndaddy's walking stick so much that he made her her own...







see more of our trip here as well as more pictures of their beautiful home...

thank you so much lynndaddy and grammy! it was a perfect weekend.
