Little Things

Friday, September 28, 2012

What's making me thankful and smile this week?
Meeting my husband out tonight in red high heels (:
Our potted garden. Even if you live in an apartment with no yard, it's still possible to have a little garden! It has been producing so much basil and rosemary to my cooking heart's delight. 
 Pulling over on the side of the road to catch the gorgeous sunset.  I don't even have to finish my sentence,  Cam is so used to this by now! 
 Finishing this book in two days. A Vineyard in Tuscany: A Wine Lover's Dream.
Yep, devoured that. We are wine lovers and owning a vineyard is our dream.
 Heading to the beach for a couple weekend hours with this handsome guy.  Always a pleasure.
These very true, inspirational words spoken by Dad Wayne.

I hope you all have an amazing weekend!

  2. B-E-A-UTIFUL photos, girl! I need a beach in my life something fierce. And as if our PB addition wasn't already evidence enough, the owning a vineyard one day dream just seals the deal. We are soul sisters. For real. D and I talk about doing that when he retires! Well, that and owning a beach house on the coast of NC. I'm still hanging on to both. It can happen, right? ;)

    Hope you have a lovely weekend, lady!

  7. Beautiful joys of life! I would love to own a winery I think...such fun to sell and taste and plan special events - but I don't think I'd be up for the maintenance of a vineyard! Hooray for high heels and sunsets. It's the little things...

  10. I just love escaping into your posts sometimes! As the weather cools and the skies turn grey here in Portland (even though I kind of love it), I love hopping over to your blog and dwelling in the light and color!

    And I want to read that book! At work last night, we had dinner with one of our longest running vineyard owners (he's this sweet little man in his 70s) and he talked all about owning this little 4 acre vineyard and having his own little orchard... It's SO much hard work, but you can tell he loves it, even after 30 years!

  12. Girlfriend- you need to write a travel or cookbook of some sort :) That's my idea for you as I stare at your lovely photos! Those shoes are so cute, that sunset is gorg and I love the potted garden on your balcony. You're right- even with no yard, a garden is possible!
