Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie. ~Jim Davis


So I struggle to get the boyfriend to eat vegetables
if it were up to him
we would eat nothing but fettucini alfredo
-since we have been together-
his food horizons have been super expanded
~soooo crazy to me~
because he lived in NYC for years

*and I would have eaten my way through that town*

-new new years resolution
figure out how to sneak more veggies into our diet

Artsy Fartsy

I'm off to my art class
here is what I am working on

*lulu is always an excellent muse*


So when the boyfriend and I 
were in NYC
I tasted a bunch of different frozen yogurts
I sampled pink berry
and a very memorable goats milk frozen yogurt
and now Charleston has it's very own
~hip little yogurt place~
Jordan had never been
*and since her sweet tooth is legendary* 
we ventured downtown

Photo a day: Week Seven

Photo  a  Day
~Week Seven~
I think since February is the shortest month
it is also the busiest 
something about fitting everything in 
always eludes me
I'm still sticking to my new years resolution
to make time to be creative every day
*making the bed has suffered a bit*
~I'm gonna head upstairs and do that now~

Green Thumb

My Grandpa was a gardener
he maintained a full on serious garden
corn, okra, tomatoes
*he would grow it all*

me on the other hand.....
I've never started plants from seeds
~totally lazy gardener~
buying my plants
and then transplanting them into their pots
and feeling quite accomplished 
when I'm done

Well no more lazy gardening!
I'm breaking out my genetic green thumb
~I love a good project~

seed trays are an easy start

Just add water
-and they triple in size- 
ready for some seeds

*here are my little starter plants*
with plenty indirect sunlight

and in just a few days
my little seedlings are poking out already
**I am super excited**

Lulu loves the fireplace

I love the fireplace too
~but not as much as Lu~
she can't get enough of that lovely heat
she is not a cold weather pup

*let it snow* let it snow* let it snow*

The Charleston area had its first snowfall
in nearly a decade this last week
*things got pretty crazy around here*

I was at work 
when lovely fluffy snowflakes 
blanketed the area
and to my surprise 
it stuck!


a lowcountry snow ball
playing outside without grabbing my coat

***look how deep it was**

*turns out*
 palm trees are not a big fans
of crazy blizzards 

the east crossing estate

I was highly excited by all the snow

lulu was not excited at all

V-day countdown!

New Year's Eve, NYC, 1965 (Kiss me, stupid) by CCNY Libraries.

For it was not into my ear you whispered,
 but into my heart.
 It was not my lips you kissed, 
but my soul.
