#holdengirlsroadtrip



By the time you read this post, I will be New York bound!
I know!....I can't believe it myself.

If you would have told me this time last year that I would be driving across the country with my sister-in-law to Lake Placid,  New York to hang out with ladies I've never seen face to face...
well, I woulda told you that you were crazy.

But it's true.
That's exactly where I am heading.
I never could have imagined how rewarding blogging would be to me..
the encouragement...the wisdom....the friendships....the creativity....
I'm blown away by how big God's plans are compared to my plan.
I thought this blog was gonna just a be a place to document my family's happenings for all of them to read and treasure....like an "up-graded photo album" for them to enjoy.
But instead, God has opened doors that has humbled me and challenged me and amazed me through this little place I call The Honey Pot.
I'm so excited to see what else He has in store.

"Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. "
Ephesians 3:20-21



And as if getting to go to New York.. with Heather (the best part of the trip for me)... to meet friends who I have come to value and treasure these past six months wasn't enough...
On the way back, I'll be meeting up with Nick and we are getting to go hang out with Chris and Elizabeth and our grandchildren for a few days!  
And if that wasn't enough...oh my..... we are taking the grand babies back with us for a week!!  Woo to the Hoo to the hee haw haw!!
 Camp Honey 2012!
So with that said,  you may not hear from me on here for a week or so.
But don't worry, I'll be sure to fill you in on all the good stuff! ;)

If you are on Instagram, you probably can see all the shenanigans as they  happen.
(I'm honeyholden on there if you want to follow along)

Woo Hoo!
#funcity here I come!!

Stephanie :)

ps. today is my awesome son-in-law, Christopher's birthday. 
 I'm so proud of the man of God he is and how is following hard after Jesus.  I'm so blessed he's the daddy to my grandkids and husband to my daughter.  
Chris, Happy Birthday!  I love you!  I'm flat out of raps this year but I'm thinking my trip to NY might inspire me to bust a rhyme in the days ahead.  Until then, just go watch last years again....{here}


pss.  You can go check out Sarah's link here to meet all the ladies and see where I'm going.

psss. that beautiful bag in the pic above is like one eighth of the luggage I'm packing.
dead serious.
