Oh why hello there.

Oh my how time flies these days. After vacationing along the beautiful Carolina coast & then in the high country {and getting a nasty more-than-week-long summer cold along the way} I'm more than ready to be back. I'm ready to welcome summer with open arms: heat, humidity, & home-grown tomatoes. What's been keeping you busy these days?


Did I tell you my parents adopted a new furry friend named Fairbanks? He's a pretty cute goldendoodle puppy. Pete likes him. He likes Pete. They snuggle well in the car on the way back from the beach.



Despite my dayquil/nyquil regimen & internal funk I was ecstatic to see that Peonies were still blooming in the mountains. Pete was jazzed about rock-climbing. For fabulous pics of this adventure, please visit Laura's blog. They put my grainy cell phone photos to shame.


There is absolutely nothing better than the back deck in the high country on an early summer's evening.

What fantastic pictures!! I love goldendoodles. We have a golden retriever but would love a sweet little goldendoodle puppy, we're on the lookout. Pete's pretty darn cute too and they look like kids in those pictures!

I've never known a goldendoodle in real life, but Fairbanks has won me over :) That photo of he and Pete is perfection!

Glad you are feeling better!

love a glass of wine up in the MTNs! I bet Pete loved the mountains. Charley can't get enough of the great outdoors himself.
