Day 3: Say Yes.

Jun 18, 2016 | 30 Days of Fun, thirty-days projects | 3 comments

We’ve been binge watching the show Justified, my sweet husband and I, a show we both enjoy but one that offers more than a tiny bit of violence. As we’ve just finished Season One I suggested we take a night off to regain some peace (if you will) in our lives. So we’ll have movie night instead, we decided. And since it is the Summer of Fun, it will be a comedy.

And then this text comes from my dear friend, Leslie.




You can probably guess just what happened next.




What fun it was to change our plans at the last minute, to run out the door toward Summer Fun like high school juniors who’d just gotten their drivers’ licenses.



Scott, Tim and Leslie. Cheers!


Not only that–but we stayed late, walking out the door to find pretty Main Street had gotten mighty sleepy.



Lexington, SC


It was a fun, fun night with unexpected friend sightings (Hi Amanda and Derek!), bar giveaways (sunglasses with bottle-opener ear wraps), and some rather fantastic story-telling around our own happy table, one involving the fine art of shooting down a Christmas tree.

(You read that right.)

Aahhh Summer. I do adore you!

    I’ll have to check out KC! Maybe it will be another opportunity in your future!????

    Oh you know full well I love these kind of opportunities. May we never believe we have to “grow out” of them. Those opportunities make our lives bigger. Remember when I told you to not to the laundry and to go up to Greenville instead? Remember why?? In a year, that laundry won’t be a a flicker in your memory. What would be is the regret for not going to Greenville. 😉

    Wow, unexpected things are the best.

Hi. I’m Cathy.

This is a blog about writing, creative living, and grace in the everyday. It’s my hope this little spot on the internet will be for you a place of quiet and reflection, a source for inspiration, and a reminder there’s beauty all around—we simply need to keep our hearts open to see it. Thank you for being here with me.
