the angel oak.

can you believe how gorgeous this tree is?  they call it the angel oak.  Legend has it, ghosts of former slaves appear as angels around this tree.  it's estimated to be 500+ years old.  today, we went to visit the tree for the second time.  griffin loved touching the tree and really...just being here felt pretty special.

for my 30th birthday last week, chad surprised me with unique angel oak jewelry in mixed metal- which he had picked out himself before I had even seen this beautiful tree.  my hubby knows me well.  thank you for the extremely thoughtful gift, honey.  i love it.

love, us
