It’s been a great day.  It started with one of those gut busting laughs that brings tears to your eyes. I laughed well before my first cup of coffee, right through breakfast and I am still laughing.  There’s not been an ounce of chaos today and chaos has reigned for nine hours per day every day for the last three weeks.  But that too shall soon pass.
I probably should have bypassed that all-you-can-eat buffet dinner but the fried chicken and banana pudding just wouldn’t let me.  I ate well and I’m sure I’ll be regretting it next week when I have to throw in an extra hour or two of exercise to work off all the unnecessary calories.
The highlight of my day though was the afternoon excursion through the antique market and being reunited with the violinist.  I had first discovered the violinist two, maybe three years ago and I’d fallen head over heels in love with him.  Back then he belonged to someone else and could not be had.  I walked away from him heartbroken believing that he was lost to me forever.  So I was not at all prepared to find him where I did today.  To turn a corner and have him there behind me as I stood staring at something else was my surprise of the day.  And, seeing him again today I was in awe, as if it were our very first time.  The icing on the cake was discovering that he was available and wanting to come home with me as much as I wanted him here.
It’s been a great day and the violinist just made it picture perfect.

This is SO cool!  I've always said this small town sits right on the edge of heaven.  I found my creative muse here and the community has nourished it beyond measure.  It's home, sweet home, and I've yet to find another place that moves my spirit as much.  Click on the link below and experience my little piece of heaven!

On Saturday morning I packed a bag and disappeared.  With my favorite guy, a tank of gas, a bag of cheese doodles and a large sweet tea, I plugged my destination into the GPS and pointed the car toward the Carolina coast.  Despite some unexpected rain storms I dipped my toes into the salted sea and was reinvigorated.  I had a great weekend!  It was relaxing, exciting, love-filled, and the adventure completely nourished my spirit.  I'm back home now, the engine still cooling in the car, and I am feelin' DAMN good!

Feelin' Good

Birds flying high
You know how I feel
Sun in the sky
You know how I feel
Breeze driftin' on by
You know how I feel
It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good, I'm feeling good

Every so often I have a moment and when I do, I go searching for the perfect song to express what I'm feeling.  I was having a moment, and this was the perfect song.  Sometimes it just doesn't get any better.
