Vive la Odomfest!

Zack & I went on a wee getaway this weekend to Maggie Valley with a handful of other couple friends & the ineffable Buddy & Kathie Odom. 

aren't they cute?

Yes, that IS a serious 'stache. Go ahead & covet it. It's a natural response. 

You know that person that seems to see straight through you at first glance? That person that showers you with encouraging words that soak into your soul? For me, that person is Buddy. And along side him, in perfect form, is his better half, Kathie. She is a hug personified. 

Being in their presence reminds me how rich life is & just how abundant God's love is for me. That sounds cheesy & disingenuous but I don't care. I mean it. 

If you don't have people in your life like this, I highly recommend you find some.   

same goes for people like this:

This is Phil & Amy Berry. They have leather do-rags on their heads. They make cute babies. They are also frenchers. Obvi. (Sidenote: If you ever want to play truth or dare with somebody, ask Amy).

And Leslie Sloan. I love thee & not just because you quote Ludacris like a real bonafide homey. 
Also- Mister Wolf, I am just as surprised that you are painted on a wooden oar as you are.

I must not forget the one who made it all possible, Katie O. (Who also happens to be the spawn of 'Stache & Hug). She babysat Ruby overnight & is an overall incredible young lady. (Thanks SO much, Katie. Now stop reading my blog. It will taint your incredible young mind).   ;)

One can only hope that the Odomfest tradition will live on. We are all better (& fatter) because of it.
