Awwww Jabez. . . . .

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place.  This is where my family celebrates Christmas every year!  We start with fudge, puppy chow, dips, cheeseballs, pizza, and cheesecake until we can’t move.  Then, it’s onto presents and finally some games – cards, pool, and sardines in the dark, eventually laying around until the wee hours of the morning watching movies. . . Only to wake-up to coffee on the balcony overlooking the finest “mountains” in Missouri.  That view though.  It’s amazing for any type of event – from Family Christmases to Retreats to WEDDINGS!

It’s the Jabez Retreat Center in Mooresville, MO.  And, this is the amazing man and his wife that brought it to us.  I had the pleasure of photographing them, their families and the patriarch of the family celebrating his 100th at Jabez!  They are truly as sweet as they look.  We are so thankful their vision came to life, so that we can make memories every year!!!  (And, Happy 100th Grandpa!  You can tell he still has some spunk in the image below!)
