The weekend of the baby boom baby showers was my first wedding free weekend since I left my beloved Kimpton family. The next day I headed down south to the mountains to reboot before starting my new gig at MICA. That was nine weeks ago. Time flies when you are having fun. This view makes my heart sing. My godmother and I made a plan to paint and walk and just enjoy some much needed rest. I saw my sister Busy for one night and then got to see my littlest best friends later in the week in Atlanta. Fall in Georgia is pretty incredible.
It had been ten years since I'd been to the house so the boat house was "new" to me. I'm convinced that is Granddaddy's sphere on the dock. He used to fish right off of the dock every summer we went to visit. Mac, Dad and I would drive down from Michigan and spend a week there on our way to Destin. The roads are windy and the air is so fresh.
The next generation has arrived and my cousin's kids presence was most imagined in the life preserver department in the boat house. I have yet to meet any of them and it bums me out we are all so far apart. We spent our lifetime growing up with these cousins.
The views change daily and Harriet began a painting while I was there. I wanted to paint but came down with a cold that turned out to be pneumonia so I rested more than I expected.
Francie's Cheese Souffle Recipe and the perfect result with my wonderful Harriet.
This was taken with my iPhone 6 plus and just a few filters. It is my favorite shot from the week.
Their new puppy was my companion all week too. Rat terrier chihuahua mix. I keep wanting to call her Glory and for the life of me can't remember her name. I blame the fever. I stayed bundled on the porch and new Glory snuggled up with me on my lap every day. I miss her even though I can't remember her name.
We also took a booze cruise. Bourbon really does cure all that ales, especially a cough. It reminded me of Francie.
Thank you Harriet and Alec from the bottom of my heart for the restful visit. Being on the water was just what I needed. Eric was pretty jealous so next time I can't wait to show him the river with you. Love you all and Merry Christmas.
