Decatur date

Honestly, stifling hot weather almost depresses me. Give me a rainy day any day! I have always loved rainy days, even as a little girl. Something refreshing about a cloudy rainy day. However, give me a stifling hot day complete with an ocean breeze...now that's a different story! Found these sunflowers the other day & they are such a joy!
Dan & I were able to go enjoy a day together in Decatur. Such a fun eclectic town. We started out with breakfast at The Flying Biscuit known for scrumptious biscuits & out of this world grits. Decatur has several old beautiful churches.
Any little town that sports a lime green fire hydrant is definitely cute!
Off to Starbucks for one of their new yummy
Blueberries & Creme Frappuccino's, lite of course.
Very good choice!

This statue is so sweet. Apparently the artist completed a sculpture of this couple in their youth & chose to revisit them later in life.

Perfect picture of what I hope Dan & I will look like one day.

Then onto my Scrap Chic boutique for some goodies.

I love their whole urban chic look with a to-die-for chandelier! Found some great papers & Rhonna rubons that I can't wait to play with!




Spotted some cute red rides!


This little fella has been hanging out in our yard for a few weeks. I caught him in the back yard several days ago & he was so tiny. We often see him & momma hoppin around--precious.


& then to top off a fun morning....some treasures from the antique shop. A piece of silver plate monogrammed flatware , an old key, several vintage pins & earrings. The Princess Diaries books too!

Not a bad day with my sweet man.....
despite the 90 degrees!

Sounds like fun! Love the bunny and the baubles.
We could use some rain too. The humidity is crazy!
It's very "close" as my Grandma used to say.
