the highlights.

2015. Let's get it together.

I don't know what it has been about these past few weeks, but I can't get my life together. Lots of unorganized chaos, Christmas stuff still all over the house, and the never-ending pile of dishes that has become my nemesis every single night.  I'm definitely going through withdrawals of winter break. My current career is on the rocks (due to a company aquisition)...and quite truthfully, I have got no clue as to where life is currently leading me. 

Oh well. I digress.

So, in light of all that mess, I have found plenty of time for some fun things. Let's chat about it for a second.
one| my college girlfriend Lakean got married to her sweet boy James Michael. It poured the entire day, but the inside of the barn at their venue (The Farm at Brusharbor in Concord, NC) was absolutely beautiful. It was good to catch up with old college friends and spend a little bit of time on the dance floor with my love.

two| I wasn't feeling that well this week, so on a unexpected warm rainy day, I opened up the doors to our master bedroom and listened to the rain fall on the tin roof. Living in a log home is seriously the best and I have no plans of ever leaving this beautiful place we built together. It's kind of like staying in a mountain retreat...except, I still have to do the dishes.

three| peyton has been dying to see the World's Largest Dinosaurs exhibit at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh, so we took some time to check out the dinosaurs and eat some lunch.  We chose Beasley's Chicken + Honey and fell in love with the twist on some of their classic southern dishes.

four| we don't have any kids, but our house is full of both old (or vintage, as peyton would say) and new ninja turtle toys.  Oh well...marriage is about compromise...right?

five| hope your week went well! anybody else ready for the weekend?!
