Sigh of relief…I am going on vacation…to somewhere very old-fashioned, where there is no internet or phone service. It will indeed be a time for reading, (so many Vogues to catch up on and maybe a little C.S. Lewis, for the first time in my life!) sleeping, dressing up, hiking, and maybe some spa time too. Thank goodness for these times of rest. Soon I will move to work at Billy Reid for the summer. Look forward to photos from the mountains and of Mildred once I am back and settled into my new home! One sweet Southern summer coming up!
I thought I would give you a little polaroid lovin this overcast Tuesday! I shot this in Spring of 2009.
My sweet Aunt Mary came to visit me yesterday, and I basically took a mini vacation while she was here! I even stayed at a hotel with her. Plush bed, yes please, thank you. She also fed TJ & me so well and took us to our favorite place in town, Flat Iron Grille (the very best restaurant here), after I spoke at Town & Gown! More on that later. For now, amongst the craziness, I say thank goodness for family, loves, luxurious hotel beds, and scrumptious food!
I absolutely adore this grocery store/market/cafe…in part because they play the greatest jazz music. It is one of my favorite places in Birmingham. When I think of home I think of V. Richards. So many happy memories there mix themselves into one great ideal: cherry bon bons, spring days, Magic City Blend coffee, time with dear friends, breakfasts, and extra long conversations.
I miss Birmingham!
TUNES: “Rome” by Phoenix. I love this band so muchhhhh.
