Good morning from my buddy Hank and me! Today, I am wishing for more beautiful, crisp fall mornings like this one and Hank is wishing for more hugs. It’s true- this is the only dog I’ve ever known who goes out of his way to get your attention so that you’ll give him a big bear hug. He will keep pawing at you until you give him one and it can’t just be a quick hug- you have to hold him for a minute. (Melt.) I mean- this face. How could you ever say no?! (Hank gets lots of hugs) 🙂
I have a busy day of errands planned, hence the short post today, but check back here tomorrow for a new monthly Vlog series linkup I’ll be participating in. This linkup is hosted by Faith from Life With Mrs G & the Artist – if you would like to join in, you can find more info here!
For today though, I want to know what you’re wishing for? Head over to Love the Here and Now to link up with Anne and the rest of us! Have an awesome day, everybody!
Oh, hi. It’s just me. Totally slacking today and posting later in the day than usual. Even though I was up at 5:30am this morning. (Whyyyy does this happen?! Finally my chance to sleep in, babe-free, and I’m up at the crack of dawn.) I’ve gone jogging, took a long walk, smelled the flowers, ate the most healthy breakfast I’ve had in awhile, went to the gym, read the paper (like a REAL paper paper) (and I don’t mean People magazine) and have had 4 cups of coffee. (Nap later?) But but but – mornings like this. I tell you what- just leave me right here, in this place with these views and these flowers and these sweet, sweet people, and I will be happy for the rest of my days.
I’m definitely behind on my reading this week, and dying to know what’s going on with y’all (see what I did there? It’s what these southerners say… I still can’t say it without it sounding forced, and as one syllable – mine sounds more like “yah-uh-all” but I’m working on it.) Clearly I love it here and I am soaking in everything that is SOUTHERN but guys. Can I just say that not all of it is appealing to this gal? For one, I have a new fear of Recluse Spiders (not even sure if that’s how it’s spelled but I’m sure as hell not gonna google it and find 2309862 images of those little devils.) So this is not a new fear, just a newly heightened fear – after finding out that those horrible things just LOVE it here. I’ve been sleeping with one eye open and one hand on my hairspray. (It’s the only weapon I have.) Another thing, the BBQ here… it’s everywhere and I swear to you, that’s all people eat. There are tons of hipsters in this town, right?? I mean, where are all the freakin’ vegetarians?! I cannot keep eating sides! Last night I found myself ordering a higher-calorie-than-usually-ordered beer simply because I was starving to death. (I may be exaggerating.)
Spiders and pork aside, this place is perfection and I’m SO excited to share more of our adventures here with you all. Until then, I am guest posting over at Seriously, Sarah? today, talking about how we can still find beauty on a dirt path. Come over and say hi!
