132 Miles.


That's how far it is from my doorstep to his and every time I turn left out of my drive headed towards his house, I get a butterfly or two and a smile across my face.. it's really just the beginning of us, and we don't have it all worked out, we aren't perfect, we aren't even close..   and that's perfect enough for me.



Among seeing my babe in Tennessee, I love everything else the land has to offer, could see myself easily living there. He lives in a small town, but not quite as small as my town, so there are a few things more to do than here. On Friday we hit up our favorite Mexican joint and then hung out on the couch watching movies, this is our normal Friday plan...only after scouring the local grocery store for every snack we absolutely do not need, to hell with it! :]





Saturday we hit the flea market after some errands, had a lot of fun just wondering around looking at all the treasures, all the junk. I found a candle maker there that has some delicious soy candles, I bought a "Spice" candle and it has since been making the house smell yummy. He picked up a gift for his Dad, we wondered around a bit more, I pet countless dogs (can't resist), considered buying a TN Walking Hound (my goodness she was precious), saw chickens, pigs, a donkey, a foal and a horse or two. The day wasn't complete without trying some deep fried chocolate chip cookie dough , yea..  it was good. (sorry for picture quality, phone camera). Later that night we went even deeper into BFE to my honey's Mom's house where some down home southern amazement can be found, that and a quality round of tag ended this day perfectly!




Sunday was the day to explore and walk off some down home southern amazement..  we visited (and trespassed) a really cool little bridge, saw some sprawling field and an animal or two then we walked our way up to Lovers Leap, narrowly avoiding frogs of combat and deathly spiders (I exaggerate..  somewhat). Once we got to the top, Wow! What a view!..  We contemplated leaping as lovers would do but that was quickly voted down due to the want for ice cream and slushies. What can I say? Foodies for...life? Laugh now :]



All in all, another wonderful weekend in Tennessee.

Newest Beginnings.

Hi all, where to start? I am not new to the blogging world, just have been on a long hiatus of sorts. Here is my "old" blog ~ it was a great blog..  well, to me but since have changed many things in my life, hence starting anew!

So, now that we have all that out of the way, what issss new? Well, I currently live in GA and have since January but will be returning to the good old state of Florida in a few short weeks, not necessarily because I think FL is a wonderful place ( I don't) but because I have been running my job remotely and it has proved to be a very taxing measure, working out of your home is NOTHING that it's cracked up to be. Sure, I can work in my pajamas but that soon gets boring and before you know it you've stopped brushing your hair, teeth and god knows what else..  I truly miss the routine of the morning, grabbing a coffee on the way in, bustling around the office all day with other people in the same goal oriented mindset and then, and...then, leaving it all at the end of the day, turning the key to the lock position and walking away from all things work..  then coming home to my house where NO work..  well, office work of any kind can be found. I miss those days even though I use to gripe about any number of those things back then, that'll teach me. Anyhow, both my boss & I agree I am suited best IN office, so back I shall go.

Anyhow, to make a long story longer, moving back down to FL shortly, after I have gallbladder surgery next week (should be fun) and going back and forth to TN in-between (which will continue after my move), you see.. this is where my boyfriend lives. I have found such a wonderful, caring, makeyoulaughtilyoupee, sarcastic, sweet, family oriented, goal minded, honest, intelligent guy..   I could go on..  in other words, I feel very lucky to have stumbled across his path and I anticipate the future like never before.

On that note, here is to the beginning of beginning. I'm looking forward to it..
