Derek and I's Great Adventure

Derek and I's great adventure took us to Pine Mountain, Georgia.  Our journey took us through Lousiana, Mississippi and Alabama before arriving in the great state of Georgia.  Our first stop was Franklin D Roosevelt State Park to check into our cabin and throw a line in the lake.
My brother Clinton joined us for the weekend.  He showed Derek a great time while I was in class. 
Doesn't he look happy? 

I started the next day in the greenhouses at Callaway Gardens.  It was beautiful!  Next we were on to the herb walk.  The class I went to was the Herbal Medicine Boot Camp taught by Philip Fritchey ND.

Huge bonus for me was Thomas Anstett ND and his beautiful wife were in the class as well.  Thomas is one of my favorite instructors :).
We ate lunch outside the Butterfly Palace.  Aren't they beautiful?

The next day we made tinctures, salve, tea and encapsulated herbs. Then it was time to say good to the cabin until next time.  It was a gorgeous place to stay.

Next was the long journey home over the swollen Mississippi.  We crossed as those poor families were packing their belongings and moving to high ground.  I loved spending the weekend with my little man.  So thankful.
