And can I just say....I miss the Friday Feet?

Anyway, on to this week's question: 

Summer Break is upon us! What would be the perfect vacation spot for you to catch up on your reading & relax?

I thought about this, and I was having trouble thinking of a place I really wanted to go. 

Then I realized why:  I am so, so happy right where I am.  I got home last week from a year of college, and I love just existing here. 

This morning I walked around while it was still cool and dewy and the trees were sending shadows dancing across the lawn, and took pictures like this: 

And this: 

Because I could hardly believe how green it was.  Then I made myself a delicious flatbread pizza for lunch, and later I helped my mom weed a bed of flowers.  I never even knew I liked to weed, but I do.  It makes me feel like I'm getting in touch with my inner hobbit or something. 

So I'm happy right where I am for now.  Tyler-Rose is in Paris, so she would probably answer the same. ;) 

Happy Friday! 



  1. Wow, it looks beautiful where you are. I wouldn't mind reading there for vacation.
    Thanks for stopping by!

  2. This is beautiful. You have a great blog.

  3. There's no place like home :)
    And I totally understand the weeding thing. For some reason, that's when some of my best story ideas come to me.

    1. I bet it would be an activity likely to bring story ideas to the surface. Something about having your hands busy sets your mind free.

  4. I would like to point out that the way the grass in your pictures looks was what I was trying to convey with "lush winter grass." This is how my house looks late November through April.

  5. you're right, it looks really perfect, lol now I want to read there too!
