See we had to get up early because my 92 year old great aunt had made reservations for breakfast for lexi and I to be their guest. My Aunt Nell and Uncle James live in Cummings, Ga in a assisted living home. They are two of the most sweetest people that you would ever meet. My aunt Nell has been one of my biggest supporters. Her son (my cousin) made our first gift basket order when we first started years ago. I still have the cute purchase order form they sent. He stopped by and encouraged me about business. He has owned his own business for 30 years at least and is a very humble and sweet.IMG_5386IMG_5387 We visited in their little apartment and then walked down to have breakfast. It was so sweet to spend time with them. My grandmother was texting me to send her pictures. She had not seen her sister in a few years. I would show aunt Nell my grandmothers pictures and vice versa. I shed some tears and so did my grandmother. It was great to be able to connect them in a way that could see each other from miles away. After breakfast and our visit we left to head north about a hour to the hospital. Not a scary hospital but a fun hospital! We went to Babyland Cabbage Patch Hospital. Yep that is  right we went to go see cabbage patch babies be born. It was a bucket list thing I have always wanted to do since I was a little girl. We could never afford one. I always wanted a blonde hair blue eyed baby powdered smelling doll lol. Poor Lexi had to be dragged in there but I did not care. I wanted to see the magical tree that mother cabbage births a baby doll.IMG_5420 I am cracking up writing about this. They have doctors that speak in character the whole time. You should watch this video HERE and get a good laugh for the day. I walked around and and looked at all of the dolls and they are all pre-dressed. There she was blonde hair blue eyed cutie pie...with a "Best Friends" outfit on it. After all it was best friend day a few days prior. My bestie of 26 years is blonde hair and blue eyed. So I got it for her. I found a brown hair blue eyed one for me and had to have a little picture. I may have been the only 41 year old hugging all the dolls, but who cares. IT WAS FUN! Here are some fun pictures for you to laugh at....it is ok go ahead its good for your soul.

Meet Holly Anne & Hollie Dawn Besties forever![/caption] Can I just tell you I love my job and I am so thankful God has let me have this soapy journey. Without soap making I would not have gone to do this road trip. Sometimes you can not look at the big picture, but simply the next day and to keep moving. You just never know where your journey will take you. ~Holly & Lexi
