Dallas :: Part 1 :: Thanksgiving Square

This past weekend my dear friend, Jane, and I went to the big D (and I do mean Dallas) to visit Miss Callie Christian, our best friend from Pepperdine University.  Callie and I spent all 4 years together while Jane transferred after 1, but I am forever thankful that in that first year she shared a suite with Callie and introduced us both to a life long friend.  Callie is an amazing woman...faithful, courageous and loyal and I am so grateful for her continued friendship...which is perfect for this first post about my trip to Dallas.

Callie recently moved into a high rise downtown and this visit was my first opportunity to check it out and let me tell you, it is deluxe!  Near her building is Thanksgiving Square...and I love that in the midst of a big bustling city they thought to create this spiritual oasis.

This is the world's largest stain glass window installation and it's inside the spiral building in the first photo.

Visiting this park and sharing the things we are grateful for was a perfect way to start off the trip...a trip that was filled with friends, family, food, hair fun and a run-in with a famous chef (not necessarily in that order). Be on the look out for more posts...probably spread out throughout the day as my mom is coming over and I'll have a bit of time to sneak away to my computer.
