the smell of honeysuckle & your perfume

at the beach for the weekend.

trying to cheer myself up (this week was rough).

get some work done (just finished my law homework for the week).

& clear my mind (it’s spinning).

wish i brought some painting supplies (but then i wouldn’t get any school work done).

had dinner (& peanut butter pie) at proco tonight (it was just what i wanted/needed).

hoping i can catch up on some sleep too.



the summer air was heavy & sweet

happy sunday night y’all, annie & i had a busy weekend! we went to wilmington to see sarah & friends & had a blast! (totally needed to get out of the qc for a while)

friday we had dinner on the water & started our own little dance party downtown.

& saturday we were lazy, had lunch, sat on the beach, watched the ncsu/unc game, & ate celebration (birthday) cake!

today was BEAUTIFUL (well friday & saturday were too). we went to church (& they even sang an elevation song!), had a huge brunch, & sat on the dock & chatted.

it was a much needed weekend away & i miss wilmington already!

these are the words i held back, as i was leaving

this weekend was a whirlwind.

thursday, friday, & saturday i was basically sleep walking from the lack of sleep i’ve gotten in the past 2 weeks, but i sure had fun doing it.

sister & tara came into town thursday night & we had tea & halloween cookies we forgot to make for halloween.

saturday friday we hit cracker barrel & had the most delicious cinnamon strudel french toast (yes, from cracker barrel) & i even spurgled & had eggs & bacon & it was amazing. this breakfast was to fuel us up for the southern christmas show. we had a great time, bought more than we’ve ever bought at the show.

we stopped by the north carolina wine shop & did a few tastings (i may have a new favorite red wine) & finished the show at the international wine booth. this place is my favorite because they had cognac & a brandy that were delicious!

i love the christmas show because they have the best food to taste & this year i got a puff dog for lunch. it’s a hot dog wrapped in puff pastry. unhealthy & i loved it (so did sister).

we went back to pure taqueria for dinner friday night & i had another amazing meal & margarita & wayy too many chips & salsa. after dinner we spent about 5 hours discussing drawing names for chirstmas/not doing presents for adults/budgets/etc. & finally got around to actually drawing names, i may have fallen asleep during this ordeal.

& this weekend i FINISHED my last gen ed class! so excited! & i got an A 🙂 🙂

hope you had a good weekend as well, back to school work now, i started another online class this week…..

i find you stunning

i had a wonderful dinner saturday night with friends from small group after church. we went to a new place in downtown matthews called pure taqueria, it was sooooo good. i had THE BEST hamburger (don’t judge, it had guacamole & chipotle mayonnaise & all the mexican style fixings).

we had such a great time, catching up, discussing the sermon, & just having girl time. it was perfect & left me feeling refreshed & hungry to move forward with my life right now. i’ve got a lot i’m thinking about & a lot i’m feeling better about other things because i’ve gotten a new perspective.


hope you had a wonderful weekend as well!

here’s to a productive & fun week 🙂

the stars can’t line up any straighter

the weekend at the beach was a much needed mini-vacation & the festival was so much fun. i got my funnel cake & lemonade & we wandered the rows of vendors on saturday & sunday. saturday afternoon sister & i met up with friends at the local wine shop for a wine tasting. it was great to catch up & the weather was perfect. sister & i took lots of fun/face making pictures, people were looking at us weird, but oh well 🙂

[last 2 pictures are from my sister]

it’s alright, just wait & see

happy friday y’all 🙂
