My Girl

Thank you to everyone for your condolences and expressions of sympathy on yesterday's post. It always amazes me how supportive and encouraging the blogging community is. I truly appreciate you all.

Today I am super excited. Danielle is coming to North Carolina for four days! I will pick her up at the airport this afternoon. Originally our plan was to take a road trip and spend a couple of days in Savannah, GA. We were hesitant to make hotel reservations last month, when we realized my mother was failing. Last week we decided that since we probably couldn't stay where we had planned, and that I hadn't been home for two weeks, maybe we would take a day trip or two. We are planning to head out early on Monday and drive to Brookgreen Garden in S. Carolina with a stop at Myrtle Beach. It will be a lot of driving in one day and it will be an adventure. We don't have any set plans for the rest of her visit, but I do know we will sip martinis out on the porch.




Do you remember that I am a potter? It's been so long since I touched clay that I almost forgot! This shino piggy bank was from the last firing in April. The simple shino pigs are always my favorite. You can find this little guy in my Etsy shop.
Have a great weekend!

  1. If anyone isn't in love with your pigs I don't know who they are; I know I am; so super that Danielle is coming to visit, enjoy.

  2. Gorgeous little piggie. Almost as handsome as the one on my dresser. He's extra special.

  3. Ahhh, crazy Myrtle Beach, say hello to my mom! Wesley and I visited Atalaya across the hwy from Brookgeen last year around this time, so beautiful around that area.

  4. Sorry I missed hearing about your mother yesterday, so now I've caught up with you. Yes, a tough time to go through, and air travel doesn't seem to help one bit. You will get lots of support, as we are all one big family...and my energies are streaming your way for comforting you. I just posted this week about beaches I've traveled to, Myrtle Beach being one that offers healing (if you find the right place)...and I've never seen the gardens. Please enjoy them for me too.
