What a Week...

Emerald Isle

This has been quite the week this week.  First came the earthquake that we felt even here in North Carolina - literally shaking our house.  Then came the first day of school.  And now for the hurricane.  For me it is a week of letting go and watching our boys soar into the new school year.  Bitter sweet.

Next week will be a little more normal around here.  Thanks for sticking around.  Happy weekend!

  3. you look so beautiful and stylish in that picture!
    i listened to the song, and i love it. i love music like that- they kind of remind me of a more mellow coldplay and i love them. one of my fave bands was vertical horizon when i was in college- from NC of course!
    i hope you guys stay safe this weekend! i just got back from the grocery store getting essentials, gas, and then of course to the liquor store for some wine! :) if there is going to be nothing to do and no power, at least better have a good malbec on hand!
    i know all about letting go this week.... emmy told me today she missed the old house. i told her that it would always be special to us but any house we live in together as a family with our dogs will be special to us as long as we are all together.
    sorry for the longest comment ever, but i am so feeling what you are today- full of bittersweet emotions, letting go, freedom, and new horizons.

  6. This song is one that I sing out loud to,(thankfully no one can hear me when I do that..) it's beautiful and seems to capture the mood you are expressing. Enjoy your week-end and here's to getting back to the new normal next week, cheers!
