I’ve been meaning to share with you the wonderful visit we had with our precious friends, Kevin and Layla.
They were traveling up north at the end of May and swung by to see us on their way back down to Alabama.
We were beyond thrilled to have Kevin and Layla stay with us.
I met Layla four years ago at Blissdom, and we both agree that it was a “God thing.”
We’ve shared a special connection ever since, and she is one of my biggest “blog blessings.”
It’s awesome making online friends and meeting them in real life. The majority of my best blog friends I have only met in real life at conferences or blog events.
So it was extra special to spend time with Layla on my home turf.
The first night they were here, we grilled out at our house and then went to get some yogurt.
Sunday morning, we were so blessed to have Layla and Kevin go to church with us. Layla shared this photo on Instagram…
After church, we headed to Johnny Corinno’s for lunch.
Here are the handsome men sitting at the other end of the table.
Eli LOVES Layla and wanted to be by her side all the time. It was so cute.
After a quick stop at Guitar Center to get Jonathan some new strings for his guitar, we went home and then headed to Shaker Village to walk around.
It was fun just checking out all the beautiful scenery.
That night, we just relaxed outside and ordered some pizza.
Kevin and Cy played basketball with the boys outside while Layla and I had fun styling and shooting some pictures inside.
Layla is the one responsible for some of the beautiful pictures in my home tour.
She completely styled my fireplace for me and taught me how to take better pictures with my camera.
You are not going to believe this, but we took the next picture of my bedroom around 9:00 that night. It was almost completely dark outside, but the settings on my camera made it look like the middle of the day!
While we were working on styling my kitchen, we heard some music outside and decided to check it out.
Here’s is what we found…
Jonathan really enjoyed playing guitar with Kevin. He learned so much from him, and he loved hanging with someone who loves music like he does.
Kevin has a sweet spirit about him that my boys just loved.
Can you believe that Layla and I didn’t get a single picture of the two of us together?! We realized it right after she left.
We had such a great time together, and we miss them terribly!
We are hoping to see them again soon.
