sweet georgia brown...

oh georgia, girl, you have been a warm welcome and an old sweet song since we came home. i feel like i am being re-acquainted with a long lost friend.

i have been enjoying lots of nature walks with my mother-in-law, husband and my mother around all the lovely little streets. folks smile and wave as we stroll on by, even if they have never seen us before. we've been greeted with warm air and some nice thunderstorms too.

we came back just in time to catch the last gasp of the dogwoods.

azaleas

we don't have cherry blossoms in these here parts, but we do have some mighty fine azaleas.


today we went to ed's grandfather's house and devoured our fair share of tangy pulled pork, salty collard greens, and buttermilk biscuits. and of course, sweet tea and peach cobbler. pop even let me play in his basement and "relieve" him of some old, rusty hardware hooks, nails, burlap and the like.

this old medicine jar made its way home with us as well.

tomorrow my mother is going to teach me about gardening. she even already potted a little chamomile for me. i hope her green thumb is part of my genetic makeup. we shall see...

i must say, it feels pretty good to be a georgia peach again.

hooray! welcome home :) Where are y'all living? Atlanta did have some lovely cherry blossoms at the tail-end of march... we somehow managed to take engagement pictures when they were at their prettiest! check it out: http://ourlaboroflove.com/showit/kathleen_and_john_engagement/

happy southern spring to you!

Well, as much I've loved your posts from NYC, I'm so excited about your move back to Georgia! I feel like I'm about to start a new adventure! So, welcome home and, don't forget, NYC will always be there for you to visit...as a Texas-born NY'er trapped in L.A., this has become my mantra. Take care.

Beautiful photos =)! I wish I had a green thumb, but every time I attempt to keep a garden, everything seems to end up prematurely dying =(!
