You know those times in life where you just need to get away? When you need a change of scenery and a change of pace?! Well that’s where we were as a family so instead of throwing Tallulah a 4th birthday party we decided to Airbnb a place in Redding! If you don’t know us you may be thinking, “why in the world Redding?!” Or “where is Redding?!” So lemme break it down for you for a sec! Redding is in Northern California – about 9 hours from where we live! Bethel church is located there plus it’s just breathtakingly beautiful! Our whole family loves what Bethel stands for and Tallulah especially loves their worship! We stream their services constantly in our home and Lou’s favorite thing to do is get out her mic stand and microphone and just belt out every word to every song! Her absolute favorites to sing with are Steffany and Amanda … she studies their every move, has their mannerisms down to a T, often walks around all day calling herself Amanda, and if you didn’t know you’d actually think they were real friends of hers! It’s the cutest thing ever! So anyways – long story, not so short, we headed up north to celebrate Lou, hear from God, and reconnect as a fam! We let River come with us he was just too busy napping to be in this photo.
Incredible levels of joy! While we were away we got to meet up with dear friends, share a meal in their home, and explore their property! They live on 7 acres and with four boys (and a baby girl) it was like we were stepping into our own wilderness explorer camp! It was incredible! I can’t believe I never snapped a photo of us all but I did capture a glimpse of this magnificent rainbow!
So thankful for His promises
However, for as much as nature refuels it’s also very important for us to have a safe haven to go back to for rest! We found that in the amazing House with a View. The minimal and modern design made it feel like home for us. It was so comfy and provided rest for five adults (my mom, dad, & sister), two kiddos, and a baby easily!
So if you find yourself traveling to Redding we highly recommend this amazing Airbnb!
No trip to Redding is complete without a pit stop at the Coffee Bar. We aren’t big coffee drinkers but they have some of the best, organic whole wheat waffles and almond butter you’ve ever had.
