Can we talk about how I NEVER know what to title these posts? Seriously.

Moving on – I’m just on for a moment before I have time with my beloved to share this with you. My friend, Maggie, shared this link with me via facebook. I kind of need it in my life. At least the experience:


How freaking precious is that? I loved how the look on the owl’s wee face totally sums up how I felt most of today!

Um, we had chili and cornbread for dinner. It was amazing. And, it officially feels like fall for us. Thinking about a camping trip this weekend to our favorite spot, I’m really looking forward to a weekend with Andrew. Just us. Woohoooo for a precious weekend!

I leave you with this lovely song tonight – Tom Petty sings it best BUT I really do like this version as well.

Good evening, friends!

Oh cuss

I was thinking about how a few of you, my friends, may not understand why I say “cuss” on the blog (or in real life). Here is a wee video of Fantastic Mr. Fox – the inspiration behind saying “cuss”. It’s a wonderful movie and I highly recommend it!

Just these words tonight…

We are His portion and He is our prize, drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes. If grace is an ocean we’re all sinking.

Oh, how He loves.

Leaf Love

These lovelies were on our windshield this morning! Happy Fall!

There is something magical about a thunderstorm morning and hearing crows amongst the rain. Welcome to Shalom.

A few lovely things…

Good Saturday Morning! Just a quick little post for the morning. So far Angus has tasted my coffee, fresh out of the percolator, and huffed and sneezed it out of his nose, looked at me and the cup with disdain and took off for a drink of water. I’m debating on how to feel about this. Especially the disdainful look. Should I be glad that he doesn’t like coffee since there will never be a cat trying to drink from my cup? Or should I be bummed because I love coffee so much and he’s not cool enough to love it with me?


Second is on the HUGE tulip poplar we have in the yard. A few bunches of leaves are beginning to turn YELLOW! I’m so excited! They’re lovely and I’m looking forward to playing in them when they start to fall!

Third is this lovely sign:I think it’s pretty fabulous. Andrew and I are going to find some great fabric for me today so I can get busy on a few projects. Christmas is coming quickly and I have some ideas that are super exciting… as long as I can actually turn them out! Ha!

Oh, and it’s actually going to be in the 70s today with a maybe thunderstorm. Welcome Fall!

Happy Saturday, friends!

Hi! Happy Day!


That totally means date night! We’re going to Asheville to eat at our favorite down town resturant and go see this movie!

And much to our dismay, since it was an evening and outdoor event, the above photo is pretty much the only one from the Punch Brothers last night. Wah wah. BUT! We did have a blast :]

Happy First Friday of Fall Eve!

Holy Cuss! We’re so excited! We’re going to see the Punch Brothers tonight at
Pisgah Brewing Co! Leslie and Ryan turned us onto them during one of our weekly hangs at their house. I’ve never been to the Pisgah Brewing Co but, I’m so jazzed about checking out some micro-brews!

In the meantime I have a wee kitten cat that has somehow managed to climb up my shoe and into my pant leg. How is that even possible?

I think… possibly…. Angus is my favorite thing ever. Short of Andrew.

First Day….

But I have the autumn wanderlust upon me, and would fain be off with a knapsack on my back and no particular destination…

Happy Flipping First Day of Autumn!!!

Let’s stay…

Before A and I even opened our eyes this morning we said, let’s stay in bed all day.

We’re too sleepy. Wouldn’t it be divine to stay in bed all day in order to prepare for tonight since Autumn makes it’s return? I think so.
