Whisk Me Away

The Gulf of Mexico at the Mississippi Coast.

This past weekend my husband whisked me away to Biloxi, Mississippi for one final recharge before the kids went back to school. Hence why I didn’t post Saturday & Sunday. It was a lovely weekend.

  • I walked the beach with my husband & put my toes in the water which was so warm.
James wrote our names in the sand.
  • I read the book Virgin River, which is HUGELY different from the Netflix series! There was definitely more GOOD in the books and waaaay less drama.
  • We ate delicious food. My favorite place was TBT – The Blind Tiger ~ a tropical oasis on stilts overlooking the Gulf. I also had the best milkshake ever at a Whataburger that was “Banana Pudding” flavor. I think I gained 5 pounds. (I KNOW I gained 5 pounds)
  • We stayed at the Beautiful Beau Rivage Hotel. It is one huge butterfly atrium.
  • I took many naps & splurged on room service.

It was a really nice getaway. It was just super HOT! I am not cut out to be a southern girl. I crave the deep woods, snow, and wearing lots of layers.

It’s always good to come home. My generous mother-in-law gave me a table easel for my paint-by-number addiction and I have a cozy area in my sitting room now to paint. I am currently working on a scene in London.

My little corner of creativity.

My life has never looked like anyone I have ever known so I am used to doing what works for me. Piles of books – The ones on the mantel are what I have read this year. (not including audio or digital) The ones on the stoop of the fireplace are my TBR. IYKYK. Of course, I have twinkle lights, artwork, and furry friends all around me. What you don’t see is Frank Sinatra, Louie Armstrong & Ella Fitzgerald softly playing in the background. I hope your space gives you warm fuzzies as mine does for me.
