Yesterday I had the opportunity to spend the day with my mom and two nieces. We headed up to Lava Hot Springs for the day just to get out of town for a bit. Our first stop was to eat lunch, which turned out to not be that great. After that, we walked around town stopping at the little shops and browsing. But besides the museum (we stopped in there too) and other little shops, my favorite stop of the day was in Purple Moon. They make their own incense, and my mom was kind enough to buy all of girls some. There were so many smells that it was hard to chose from. I always get a calming effect from walking into that store, it never fails. It’s like my happy place. After leaving there, we came back to Pocatello and decided to go into Hobby Lobby. My oldest niece has never been inside one, so it was her first time. I couldn’t believe how excited and in awe she was of all the things you could buy, especially fake floral stuff (she has a hippy heart and soul I swear). They even helped me pick out some cute stuff for my beauty room. After that, I was dropped off back home to find two furbabies excited to see me (and Marcus too after he woke up). I had made chili in the crock pot earlier, so that is what we had for dinner. We hung out, watched Star Wars, and finally drug ourselves to bed at a semi reasonable hour. Now I’m sitting here waiting for him to come home from work, so we can drop the dogs off at my parents and he can go help Papa with a new water heater. It turned out to be a really good day, and one that I’ve needed for awhile. Thank you guys so much for all the love and support as always. Much love.
