Sunrise on Ft. Lauderdale Beach. Photograph, Ann Fisher. We all need a break from work and the status quo — and a chance to walk on the beach, to clear our minds, to connect…
I really like these photos I took of the 2nd Avenue Pier in Myrtle Beach (it’s right next to my hotel). It was after sunset, and beginning to get cloudy (it’s supposed to be rainy tomorrow, ugh) but I think that makes these pictures a little moody and more interesting than those taken in full sunlight.
Tomorrow I’m going to try to get some photos of the sunrise. Hopefully it will be visible.
Hello All 🙂
I do hope you are enjoying your summers! (Or Winter, depending on where you are in the world) Personally, things have been on super high speed since about a month before the wedding. We were so happy to just sit down and breathe when we returned. However, we quickly realized that there was so much left undone here that it was only time to ‘just do it’. So…that’s what we’ve been up to.
Today, I just couldn’t resist. The sun is shining beautifully and I had to run out with my coffee and just….enjoy it. No lists, no running to this place or the other, the dishes can wait, the work can wait.
If life is merely just a bunch of snapshots strung together, I want this moment in my file!
Sometimes it’s the simple things……. snow cones on a Sunday afternoon. I am trying to treasure every minute right now. Every second.
We have 10 more days until Avery moves into her college dorm. I know things will never be the same after that. She will be independent and her own person. And I want her to be all that. We have worked all these years for her to do well and go to college. I know she is extremely privileged to be one of the few people of the population of the world that is able to do this.
I try not to worry. If I begin down that trail, it is never ending. There are so many things my mind can conjure up! I have to trust that we have instilled in her the skills and judgement she needs to make it on her own.

Mimosa Hills is the heat break I was looking forward to experiencing! And the property and views are gorgeous!
Today I’m playing golf with a friend who is a member at Mimosa Hills Country Club. This place is near the mountains about an hour from Charlotte so it will be nice to get a little break from the heat and humidity, even if it is only a few degrees. The course was built by a famous old architect, Donald Ross, in 1929. There aren’t a lot of Ross courses remaining which haven’t been redesigned so today will be a treat.
I hope everyone has a great Saturday!
Evelina and I are leaving Thursday evening or Friday morning to go to the beach house for a couple of days. There are 2 things to which I am looking forward: late evening walks on the beach and eating the best fried chicken ever! There is a grocery store that has a cafeteria line and makes fresh, homemade fried chicken, meatloaf, fried okra, mashed potatoes. I’m getting hungry just thinking about their food!
