The Traveling Birds

Hello all,

I have missed posting, sorry about the long gap but I was living life and the computer was not part of it...which we all need to do more often than not. Toby and I were recently at the Messiah Conference held by the MJAA and we had a great time. Amazing people, great messages, and getting into God's presence is always top notch in our book. The conference was in Grantham, PA (just outside Harrisburg) nestled in the trees at Messiah College and it was a perfect place to be. To get to the conference we drove up with  dear friends of ours from another congregation on a bus full of people. 13 hours later we got there...oy.

Before we left for the conference, Toby and I stumbled upon a small town called Senoia, GA. It was super cute and Southern as can be. Turns out a lot of films took place there like Sweet Home Alabama, Driving Miss Daisy and others. So, this little town seems to know it's stuff. However, there was also current filming going on there as well...for a new show called The Walking Dead. They had some of the set partially up and signs everywhere stating it. In fact, the cast had just left that very morning to return the following week! Crazy huh? The local coffee shop had even made a "Zombie Dark" brew in honor of the cast. Toby and I had a lovely, romantical day walking around, sipping tea and imagining a zombie apocalypse, haha.

Here are some pics of our travels. We are off NEXT week to visit Delware and Toby's mom's family. We are so thrilled! Hopefully I'll squeeze another post in between now and then.

Welcome to Senoia, GA.
Cute little gelato place in downtown Senoia.
Woo hoo! I love this movie.
The city was asked not to mow their lawns because the town needed to look deserted
as a result of the zombie apocalypse. haha.
Never been this close to a movie/TV set!
The fictional town of Woodbury. Senoia allowed them to keep their set for the fake town up in downtown.
More of the town.
The infamous home of "the governor" or so I was told.
Enjoying the day!
Clean shaven and make-up free at the conference.
Toby giving instructions to our friend on how to peel a banana like an actual primate. That's my man.
The scariest thing I've ever seen.
Dear friends singing their little hearts out!

Happy trails.



  1. You have such beautiful buildings in your country, England is so boring in comparison. sweet home alabama is a great movie :)

    1. See, that's how I feel about England, haha. I guess the grass is always greener on the other side. :)
