1. Friends who allow me to be my very uncensored self.
2. The very distinct and lovely smell of Autumn.
3. Sitting out on the picnic table with Chris and talking and laughing on a beautiful, cool evening - no phones, no distractions.
4. Herbal tea before bed.
5. An early morning voicemail message from a very sleepy Logan J. that both made my day and made me tear up.
6. A space to create.
7. Showing up and writing every day even when I don't feel like and getting out with my camera as many days as I can.
8. Conversations in the car with my friend Ali, windows down, dogs in the back, discussing the sun dog we witnessed in the sky as we drove out to the trails.
9. Chris' thoughtfulness and his willingness to build me a new desk. It makes me so happy to sit there and write and work on all sorts of creative endeavors.
10. That we didn't sustain any damage from Hurricane Joaquin. We are far enough from the coast that we didn't have much to worry about. We had a steady rain for several days in a row and there was some mild flooding in the area, but nothing like what Charleston and other areas sustained. If you are willing and able, I encourage you to donate to a reputable organization to help out those impacted by the storm. Because of my experience in Joplin, I can speak highly of Convoy of Hope's work. They are good people doing amazing things.
Also, there are a truckload of photos this week. I'm definitely happy about how much I got out and shot over the week.
The first set is actually from about two weeks ago during the super moon. As you can see, it was overcast and this was as much of the last super moon of 2015 that I got to see.
Happy Thursday, my friends. Here's to looking for the good.
