hello again

forgive the absence, friends. it's been a week over here. containing much, but most importantly a trip away with my one true love.

in honor of our ten, we asked dear fabulous friends to have our children and left for two days. did some walking/hiking together. it was wonderful.

Congaree National Park (yes. this will resemble me showing you my vacation slides. but it was so beautiful!! i have to do it.)

this forest was incredible. a hard wood swamp forest. i felt like i was in madagascar or something. trees 150 feet tall. birds i'd never heard before.

and day 2 had us at the Craggy Gardens on the Blue Ridge Parkway. it was insanely beautiful. the kind of beauty where you look around and don't really believe what you're seeing is real. couldn't be.

It's been a "Break Me Out" kind of day. What a wonderful way to escape the craziness and experience my friends life through pictures... I love you SO much!
I am sitting in my box listening to Jo's mix #2 and finding myself content after a crappy day. Thanks friend!
