i would like to try a macaroon one day
i am going to teach bennett to paint
i think i'll get a cactus
i am terrible about keeping exciting secrets
i just finished this book and i cried

i haven't felt like blogging

happy birthday to you

thanks to my father...
  • instead of listening to britney spears and the backstreet boys, i grew up listening to nat king cole and dean martin
  • my favorite t.v. show in middle school was this show with norm abram
  • i like to put salt on my watermelon
  • i believe it is okay to eat ice-cream out of the carton
  • i have the most amazing childhood memories
happy birthday daddy-o!

the beach and a red balloon

here are a few things that are making me so very happy right now
(besides the polaroid above and, of course, the person in it)
-the fact that, if my schedule works out, i won't have class on fridays
-back to school shopping (it never gets old, even when you're 20)
-thinking of all the art classes that i get to take this semester
-i am kind of ready to start wearing sweaters again, so hurry up autumn

we made it!

after 11 hours in a car it feels so good to be home.

we had so much going on this past week that it flew by.
here's a list of some of the highlights
and of course
a few of the several polaroids that were taken along the way.

-fighting over whose ipod to listen to during the drive
-getting good news from the doctor
-watching baby bennett in home videos (i fell in love all over again)
-spending an overcast day at the beach
-seeing the time traveler's wife at a drive-in theatre
-candy kitchen
-reading to each other
-bennett's brother's graduation party

home sweet home

it's the end of my trip.
bennett and i will embark on our 12 hour drive home tomorrow
(which i am not looking forward to)
to enjoy our last few days of summer before classes start.

we have had a wonderful time, though.
when i get back home i'll post a long list of all the fun things we got to do along with some polaroids.

happy saturday!

farewell summer

only two more weeks left of summer!

bennett and i are driving down to auburn for his brothers graduation on monday
and then spending the week with his family in tampa.
i do love road trips so much
but he has a few doctors appointments while we're down in florida
so i'm more nervous than i am excited.

and by the time i get back, my roommate will be home!
she's been in london for the past month and i've missed her dearly.
i guess i should start cleaning the apartment...

this is my favorite song. ever.
i will walk down the aisle to it at my wedding.

a little canoe trip

yesterday bennett and i took a canoe trip down the harpeth river.
it was supposed to be a four hour trip....
and it took us seven hours. seven!
it was so wonderful though.

we saw creatures

we read

we explored

we got super frustrated

oh, and we saved a dog named fancy from drowning.
we decided we must go canoeing more often.
