Beach

My husband Brad’s birthday was this past Friday.

We drove to the Isle of Palms to celebrate with a trip to the beach, where we enjoyed being near the ocean.

At the beach, all five scenes are easily engaged.

Summer

Summer has definitely arrived.

With the recent 90 degree weather and the Fourth of July holiday last week, summer is in full swing.

Schedules become more flexible with school not in session.

As a result, many families travel to visit relatives, take vacations or just get away from the daily grind of everyday life.

Harvest

Growing up, my family had a garden whenever we could.

My parents, who are currently out of the country, have continued to plant a garden each year, and Brad and I have been able to help them harvest.

We gathered together with my older sister and her family the other weekend.

Independence

Nowadays, we celebrate our independence with fireworks.

Many of us gather together with family and friends to honor those who fight to keep our nation free and to share in community.

This community did not come easily.

Salt

Cooking is an art.

My husband Brad, who attended culinary school for a time, has been teaching me the value of different spices.

I am learning a lot.

Some spices partner well together, such as Rosemary and Thyme as well as Basil and Oregano.

They complement each other.

Sick

I had heard about sickness going around the area.

Then, my husband Brad came down with the cold over a week ago, and I caught the cold on Thursday.

As with most colds for me, the soar throat hit first along with a fever.

Graduation

Graduation is a pinnacle point in the journey of life.

One of my most vivid memories of my senior year at North Greenville University came the day I finished my senior presentation.

When I walked out of the building, I felt surreal.

Sacrifice

Many of us spent the weekend resting and spending time with family.

Memorial Day honors the service men and women who gave their lives for that very freedom.

My husband Brad and I went to the Greenville Scottish Games at Furman on Saturday.

We arrived in time to get a good seat for the Military Tribute.

Julie

You don’t know what you have until it is gone.

Many times, we take people for granted when they are a constant presence in our lives.

My dear friend and coworker, Julie, went on vacation last week.

I’m glad she had a chance to get away to Charleston with her husband Scott, but we missed her here at the office.

Seasons

I have a new favorite game.
It’s called Seasons, and it’s long and complicated—not my usual choice given my competitive nature.
Generally, I enjoy simple to understand games which allow for multiple winners.
