go on over

 
i'm super honored to be guest posting over at a perfect dose of life. kristina is one of the sweetest people i've met in this crazy beautiful blogosphere. together with her husband ryan and their little dog wyatt, they've carved out quite the sweet life.

i'm writing about my little hometown in north carolina. and why i stayed, when i can count on one hand the number of my friends who are still here. so go give kristina some love!

in the meantime, please check out pablo's face in this picture.
 

as the rain fell in sheets onto our little cottage, pablo laid against me and looked out the window. at the grass getting soggier and soggier. and with every minute that passed, it's like he knew his odds of getting to play outside we diminishing. the sadness is apparent in his eyes. i kind of love those type of nights, though. when my boys are huddled on the couch with me, and it's furious outside and we're cocooned in these brick walls.

Those are the BEST days!!! I love those days when it's dreary outside and all you can do is stay cozy inside!

awww sweet. My dog used to take no notice of the rain, we'd go out and get wet together :) I miss him....

Your dog is the cutest! Just read your guest post, it was perfect. It sounds like an absolutely beautiful place to live. Most people never find the sense of home that you have found, it's a precious thing.

your guest post was so very lovely, courtney. it made me long for the countryside, for simple things and a simple life. i love that you don't measure the worth of life and its moments by what other people say and do. i love that you know who you are and that you see the beauty in every little thing.
perfect post, my dear. <3
