Football season has begun, and our team won their first game... War Eagle to all you Auburn grads and fans!
About those flowers, they are my favorite shade of rose. Especially this time of year.
They were the last bouquet at the market. I split them up to adorn both the living room
in a slightly tarnished (just enough for a touch of character) mint julep cup,
And in the dining room.
We had dinner guests on Friday night. They are our neighbors who we've been meaning to get to know beyond brief sidewalk chats. It turns out, they have led very interesting Air Force lives, and he spent the first several years of his retirement building a plane in his garage. Husband got a phone call Saturday morning inviting him to go on a brief scenic flight.
Husband thoughtfully asked me if I was okay with him traveling recreationally in a homemade airplane. I quickly calculated our neighbor's career starting as an airplane mechanic and ending as 316th Wing Commander, which essentially means he was in charge of operations and maintenance for the main base of Air Force One.
I decided if the country trusted him with at least 3 consecutive presidents' safety as well as the incoming flights of people like Princess Diana, maybe my Husband would be in good hands.
