Well Hello World

I woke up this morning to the realization that we have closed the books on tax season 2010.  And in that moment, I felt like I rejoined the world.

The sky seemed bluer...

The sun shined brighter...

The birdies sang their prettiest song...

I mentioned here that we would be headed to Summerville, SC to relax in the sweet Carolina sunshine.  So far, our getaway has been everything we thought it would be.  We had lunch at this great little place called The Mustard Seed, and then walked around downtown.  I found this adorable little shop called Teal and got myself the cutest black and white fedora!  After a frozen drink and some time by the pool, we're hanging out for a bit before going to dinner.  Mmmm...  this meal promises to be something very special.

Tomorrow we will be going further upstate to Newberry, SC to meet some of our Beaufort friends and to see the hometown of our dear friends Meg and Burke.  Meg believes, and I agree, that you really don't know someone until you see where they're from.  I cannot wait to get there!  The girls are planning on checking out a vineyard tour while the guys spend some afternoon time at the local beer parlor.  We're going to meet up at Newberry's BBQ festival called Pork in the Park (how cute!).  It should make for a great weekend of old stories and new memories.

I hope you have all had a wonderful Friday!!!
