mt. pisgah

last weekend we headed to the woods with friends and camped at mt. pisgah.
i always love being in nature.  it helps me recharge and clear my mind.

mama's house

whenever the world feels like it's crushing my soul, all i need is a visit to my mama's.
her yard is like a dream where the lilies dance in the breeze, life is slow and sweet, and the air smells of southern magnolia.  i spent the majority of my childhood here and coming back always feels right.

this past friday, i had a little extra time in my day and made these easy terrariums.
i already had the bowls and just put a layer of pebbles in the bottom and covered with potting soil.
i stuck those little plants right in there and gave them a bit of water.

this was a weekend well spent.
and productive.
friday i was up and at 'em pretty early.
i picked up some new flowers and herbs from lowe's, planted those on our deck.
i made a couple of easy terrariums. (more to come later)
friday night, the hubs and i had dinner at chorizo's in asheville, followed by treats at world coffee.
saturday was spent running some errands and then a cookout with dear friends.
and we can't forget the citrus-basil sangria.
sunday morning was spent in the coolness of the morning and then a girl's day with one of my gal pals.
we had brunch at over easy cafe, wandered around asheville, strolled the mall, and shared laughs and wished we could live like this everyday.
moments of complete contentment.

there's something to be said about the comfort of home.
it's days like today when i can piddle around a quiet house in the early morning,
run errands, plant flowers, tend the garden, and watch the sunset.
even though we will be moving in the future, there are some aspects i will truly miss about our first place together, this place we call home.
