scenes from a {deer valley} weekend

August 31, 2015

park city you never disappoint.

from your deer-dolloped hillside to the afternoon pockets of surprise thunder and lightning; i limp home, weak-knee’d, by your humble magnificence.

here’s a little recap of our weekend away:

it’s friday i’m in love…

friday friendly skies to you m’loves.

i’m off on a jet-plane to belatedly ring in my girlfriend, jill grogg’s, 30th birthday.

the weekend promises laughter, love and diaper changes–we’ll have three infants in tow……six, counting our spouses.

here are a few other things i’m loving on this week:

dude?

yumbutter.

kind of says it all right there.

yumbutter is a new almond butter i’ve been having “relations with” all week.

it’s made with freshly ground chia, hemp seed + goji.

it’s yum indeed and bonkers healthy for you.

even better, yumbutter is deliciously charitable.

with every yumbutter you buy, a malnourished child gets fed.

and on a more personal topic, i appreciate the squeeze-pouch dispenser–also known as the “no-katie-you-can’t-eat-it-all-in-one-sitting-with-a-spoon” jar.

although as i was uploading this photo i realized i could totally mainline it, reddi-whip can style.

this cinnamon toast crunch ice cream needs to happen.

to me.

to you.

to one of us.

…and soon.

ninieties

it’s no secret i’m obsessed with, maybe still stuck in, the nineties.

case in point: the 90’s karma ride my partner-in-crime, leigh beach and i taught last month.

i didn’t have to buy one thing for my “costume;” including my beloved brenda walsh choker-an heirloom i hope to someday pass down to sweet sutton, once she’s come to appreciate all things darren star.

all the music i sourced was already on my every day playlist–listen below.

so anything 90’s related i’m a sucker for; especially this compilation of awesome red carpet nineties couples!!—{leigh, i think they need to add us..}

tell me kittens, what’s your favorite nineties tune?

hair

finally my hair.

i have new hair…and i LOVE it!

 laurie bernard one of the fabulous owners of holiday salon gave me the chop last week and i’m a new person!

screw losing the baby weight…..this feels so much better.

wishing you an insane in the brain weekend to you m’loves!

summer in the south

August 23, 2014

house (1 of 1)

named the ‘devil’s elbow cottage,’ our sweet, abode is nestled among 300 year live oaks.

we watch over the marshes and waters of the pinckney island wildlife refuge, in what’s called “low-country;” a snippet of south carolina’s most beautiful and historical land.

for one week, we have made merry on this 150 acre private island.

from hour one we were in deep smit.

katieporch (1 of 1)

with a front porch made for afternoon, sipping of sweet tea, we spy on baby dear and a neighborhood of great egrets play in the bog.

Jw7InmmHSSYO72R6QJ8UxqIUdHCimaKtTxLp95hwoZM

tea for him, coffee for me; a screened porch for us both.

breakfast (1 of 1)

scrambled eggs and a smile every morning for the boy i adore.

dock of the bay (1 of 1)

early mornings {when the temperature is in the cool 90’s} we meander through different parts of the quag; a hose down at our dock is always our final stop.

foreststitting (1 of 1)

late-afternoon cocktail hour adjourns under the palmettos and myrtle oaks.

bikes (1 of 1)

i really don’t see the need for a car.

yes, it is hotter than georgia asphalt, but i can always nose out a breeze.

my husband disagrees vehemently with these statements; the only fight between us concerns the use of air conditioning.

if i had my way we’d eliminate it completely.

swings (1 of 1)

i swing for hours.

church (1 of 1)

and we find a church so stinking adorable, i become a believer right there on the spot.

ruins (1 of 1)

south carolina’s history is inescapable.

petcemetary (1 of 1)

even in the 19th century, the people of low-country revered their pets.

plantationhouse (1 of 1)

in this building i have the meal of a lifetime: an endive/arugula salad drizzled with black truffle vinegarette, a cheese plate so good i ask for smelling salts, and a blackberry cobbler topped with homemade brown butter ice cream that will haunt my culinary dreams for years to come.

geckos (1 of 1)

i make a friend.

reading

 reading spots, with every possible view, are uncovered each day.

cottagespa (1 of 1)

there may have been some pampering.

the look of not wanting to go home.

rockingchairs (1 of 1)

the seduction continues for one more day.

i don’t know what i’ll miss most about this trip.

the night-blooming jasmine providing a sweet, fragrant balm from sunrise to sunset?

the surround-sound sonata of cicadas harmonizing within the live oaks, heavy with spanish moss drapery?

i’m already yearning for more thunder and lightning storms who show up unannounced, smack in the middle, of a sunny, hot day.

and i regretfully admit to my new attachment to this salty, muggy air that has transformed my hair and skin back to a shiny, dewiness i haven’t seen in 20 years.

wendells (1 of 1)

but most of all i’ll miss this time with my man. we hardly get these long stretches together, and i’ve bottled these memories up to last me until next time.

so….until next time.
