Planning even a small vacation around here is darn near impossible, but I’m going to try and go with my sister to visit the Amish market in Pennsylvania in two weeks. We are only going to spend the weekend there and yet it will be so good to get away and also spend time with my sister. We don’t get to do this much anymore.
I love going to the markets that sell Amish quilts and baked goods, along with the crafts they make. It makes me think about the simple yet also hard life, these awesome people live, and I have great respect for them. I’m really looking forward to this mini vacation, shopping trip. I love the canned goods and other items that can be bought. With every bite of the food, or the warmth and beauty of the quilts and sewn goods, it makes me realize that all of the material things we now have, are a blessing in a way, but also have spoiled us.
