Currently in Love With… (5)

This is a series I started based on the three things that I am endlessly obsessed with — following the theme of my blog: Adventures, Creations, and Growing Things. If you’d like to read previous posts, they’re hereherehere, and here. Enjoy!

Hey, remember that time when I posted regularly? Yeah, that’s going on over here. I promise I haven’t forgotten you guys.

Here are some things that have been going on with me lately —


We’ve been going everywhere. We went to Howl-O-Scream and Colonial Williamsburg one weekend. Then a few weekends later we saw the DC end of the David Duchovny tour, stopping along every Edgar Allen Poe tourist spot on the way back to Raleigh. Both of these trips were ridiculously fun. Oh, and there was a wedding in there, too.

I like it when cannons happen.

Edgar Allen Poe was buried in this vicinity. There were a lot of people near the headstone, so I didn't get the greatest picture.

At the Poe Museum in Richmond. They employ a black cat. He gets commissions.


I’ve been stepping up my game here. I’ve got a few separate posts coming about making floating shelves, vanilla extract, and how to brainstorm effectively in the shower (the struggle is real). Until then, here’s a snapshot of what’s been going on with DIYs…

Herbs, costume edits, and vanilla extractions.

Growing Things:

The last harvest of the year made me sad, like it always does. But if I lived in a permanently good climate, it would make my babies a little less special. It’s nice to look forward to spring.


I’d say I live and breathe plants, and it would be pretty true, since that whole oxygen thing.

Bonus — Gatherings:

I’ve been less of a hermit lately (crazy, I know) and have been extracting myself from the home office long enough to have fun with friends. Hooray! I went on a hike with Amber and Kolin, Halloween’d with all my ladies, and managed to fit a lunch or two in with some friends. My parents are here this weekend and then the legendary Amy and Steve will be coming for a few days after. So far, I’ve eaten everything. Since it’s the season of gatherings, there will be more of these shenanigans to come.

I happen to like these people.

What are you loving right now?

  1. I think I need to check out Duchovny…as long as I’m not constantly thinking of the X-files theme song in my head 😉 Such a fun post! I love seeing all of your plants and nature posts. Your passion is visible in the pictures.

  3. How to brainstorm effectively in the shower…lol! I used to get all my best blog ideas in the shower. Now I just use it as a time to not think about anything at all… it’s pretty relaxing. 😛

    That’s great that you are getting out more and spending time with family and friends. I’m trying to do the same too. Even though I do love being alone, it’s nice to spend quality and fun time with others!

    • All of my best ideas are when I finally turn off whatever stimulant (music, tv, audiobook) I’m using and just be in the quiet. It’s HARD. The 21st century is not kind to people who can’t think with noise. The shower is perfect for ideas. Ha! I wish I could just *not* think.
      I see that you are! Your nieces are way cute and I totally get why you want to hang out with them. Makes me miss my nephews!

  4. I’m still envious you got to see Duchovny. Still.

    Also, I didn’t know you went on this Williamsburg trip. Or the Poe thing. NONE OF IT. I am a bad friend. I apologize.
