Back to Blogging & Leaving Charleston

It has been a long time.

As a writer, the last thing I generally want to do at the end of the day is scrawl out a blog post. Frankly, even looking at words on a screen is enough to make me crave a glass of wine.

But, the blogging and Twitter arenas did introduce me to a world of loving friends, whom I miss dearly.

So... Here I am.

Last I left off, we were relocating to Charleston, South Carolina. Thanks to the wonderful economy and Mr. Wonderful's job ending, we are now packing to move... Again. This time, we are headed to Tulsa, Oklahoma. (The in-law family and several old friends are there.)

Charleston has not been without it's charms, however.








These photos are from Magnolia Gardens, a nearby plantation from the early 1700s. I could wander the grounds for hours, gazing at the gorgeous statues and lush landscapes. (Of course, I edited them with various iPhone apps to make them look vintage. Love!)





We also visited the Angel Oak, recently. That is Mr. Wonderful and Bug standing under one huge tree! Every branch you see is from the same trunk, not multiple trees. Isn't that amazing?

So, as we leave this charming Southern town, I know that it will forever leave it's mark on my soul.
