cuddly Chloe

Chloe likes to try and talk me into staying home the rest of the day, when I go home for lunch. She's (almost) convincing.

waiting to be read

I'm so behind on my magazine-reading. These two have been sitting on my ottoman for about two weeks.

a break in the bad weather

After two days of rain, we had a break this afternoon and the sun came out. Sophie was delighted to take two walks this afternoon!

always connected

After spending days on my phone connected to Twitter, I found myself still connected tonight - only on my laptop. Decided to give my phone a break.

wedding party in Asheville

As seen from the "mystery party" in between Type-A Mom blog conference sessions.
Don't mind the glare from the window of Magnolias, but do take notice of the bride's footwear.

flower at Biltmore

I shot this today at the Biltmore Estate - I was able to take the rooftop tour with a group who are also attending the Type-A Mom Conference this weekend.
I love the flower. I love the fact that the Biltmore house is right behind it.

Expect more pictures from the conference in the coming days!

baby shower gifts

I made a friend a diaper cake today, and wrapped her gifts. Tomorrow I have to deliver them to her mom to drive to Philadelphia. I'm crossing my fingers that she likes the diaper cake. :)

fast friends

The husband made friends with the kitten this evening. Sadly, Chloe still hates it. I don't think the kitten is going to be a part of our family. (On a positive note, our neighbor is trying to get their cat to adjust to a new addition.)

I captured the first sign of fall in downtown Asheville today.
Taken from my car.

evening sun and flowers

Taken in my mom's front yard. I love the light, the flowers, and the fact that you can spot Sophie in the background.

happy 80th birthday

Today is my grandpa's 80th birthday.
He doesn't allow us to take photos of him often, so I was happy to get one where he looked mostly happy.

an outdoors kind of weekend

Chloe definitely spotted something when outside. (And, yes, for those who don't follow me regularly. My cat is on a leash.)

Oscar at LAAFF

Seen on the streets of downtown Asheville today (at LAAFF - the Lexington Ave. Arts & Fun Festival).

cool sign

...but bad service. This sign is inside Ruby's BBQ in Asheville.

night at the ballpark

Last home game of the regular season.
Asheville Tourists vs. Hickory Crawdads. We left after the 7th inning, and the score was 13-0, Asheville.

freshly painted barn

I shot this on my morning run - I like how the mountains almost look like they're painted in there.
The barn was recently painted, making it much prettier to look at when I pass it (at least twice) on my morning run.
