About Me

My photo
A 30-something living in the foothills of the Virginia mountains; I'm saved by grace, addicted to coffee and my little sister is my best friend! I devote most of my time to exploring, reading, attending as many Nationals games as possible and documenting life here. My Prince Charming got lost somewhere along the way...but I'm trying to remain hopeful that true love exists.

The Flashback: August

Oh August - you were hot. Listen - it was SO HOT. 

And honestly, I realize that as a person who lived in Mississippi for something like twenty-six years of my life that I should really be better at dealing with the heat - but guess what? I'm not. I don't care for it and honestly, it would seem that the heat does not like me either. So - while August was filled with delightful things, I am not wholly sad to see it go. 

August is always hot though - isn't it? So, a quick peek into the August that have come and gone before September (and hopefully cooler weather...) arrives!
