#2,449 Grape Juice.

When you feel like this: Only one thing will do. Not tea with honey, not for me. And egg drop soup. Nothing in the world helps the same, and I blame Mammaw who told me growing up anytime I was sick to drink some grape juice and I 100% believed her unequivocally.

#2,448 Playing Christmas.

Today we pretended it was Christmas for this year’s promos, and it’s amazing how hearing Judy Garland and hearing a fire snapping in the fireplace can trick you into feeling Christmas spirit! Sadly, I’ve taken a bad cold. But Big knows just the medicine I needed:

#2,446 Country Roads.

With so much going on, it can feel like the most delicious freedom to drive through the country and turn off the phones, where it’s quiet and there is no noise from the news or our email. Just us and the sky and the fields and a silent prayer, together.

#2,445 Bright Eyed.

We went to visit with Mammaw after church today and I was so tickled to see her doing even better than before. After a 3 week spell of sleeping all day and night, she’s totally back to normal, making self deprecating jokes while brushing her fingers through her hair and laughing elegantly, just the way she always has.  It makes my heart sing.

#2,444 Holiday Supper.

We took photos for the new Laurel Mercantile recipe book coming this holiday season, which meant smiling through the heat and pretending we have real fall weather, with the Avett Brothers on the radio. I can’t wait for y’all to taste the family recipes we’re compiling for this year’s volume. *If you’re looking for the only cookbook created by us, this is Volume 1 that we made last year, with short stories by my talented mama:

#2,443 Country Living.

So do y’all remember last November when I wrote about the Friendsgiving supper we had downtown? We had some very special guests in attendance that I couldn’t share at the time. Country Living magazine! I can’t believe the 10-page spread about our little corner of the world and am so grateful for it. Y’all pick up a copy of the November issue and it’ll be just like coming home to Laurel!

#2,432 Shug’s and Throwbacks.

Shug’s had their grand opening tonight and it was packed with people celebrating cookie dough and candy, because why wouldn’t you? And anytime I see a Vote Big Ben t-shirt from 2013 in the wild, it makes my day. Especially on the camera crew!

#2,431 Worth Every Penny.

Because today was spent entirely working on the last reveal of the first block of houses for season 2, I didn’t snap a single photo and I can’t tell you any juicy details, I thought it would be fun to share a few things I’ve bought in the last couple weeks that are game changers for one reason or another.  Dr. Teal’s Ginger & Clay Epsom Salt I bought it the day our bathtub was installed and have soaked in it every night since. The smell is heavenly. Dermablend Blurring Mousse It’s pricey but it’s seriously worth every penny. I […]

#2,430 Freezer Food.

Let me tell you what I’m thankful for. In February when I made my brother’s birthday spaghetti and meatballs, I had the the foresight to make double and put it in the freezer.  Tonight we had my best recipe without an ounce of effort: I had a soak in the new bathtub. And a new candle that smells heavenly came in the mail… It’s a little over the top how weird I am about being here, at home, where it smells and feels and tastes so good.
