Take A Hike!

Sometimes it’s about the journey and sometimes it’s about clearing your mind. But it’s always good to just get out and unwind… Let nature take you in and you exhale & let go!

Tell the world and everyone Take A Hike!

A Park Wedding

Simple yet Elegant. Every bride wants to be the center of attention on her wedding day. Some spend thousands of dollars to achieve this. Money is poured out from gowns to venues. But isn’t it love that matters most. The memories at this joyous occasion that will last in our hearts and our minds?!?! Do we need the glitz and glamour? Or will nature and natural love suffice? It is ENOUGH

Field of Dreams!

Last week I went to visit a friend at her home for the first time. She had stated to me numerous of times that she was in the country! But as I traveled from the city… It really hit me! This girl lives in the boondocks! The scenery was so relaxing and I felt at peace. The street that her house is on has the prettiest field! And a dirt road leads you to her home. Her yard was like a little garden!

We sat on this country gone modern porch and talked and laughed and drank. I stayed over and outside the guest room window I could see perfectly aligned fields. Excellent to dream to.

Black Bird in Asheville

I’ve dined in Asheville several times but while there these last couple of trips I had to feast at Black Birds. It is right in the heart of town and the windows are open wide. It feels like you are still on the streets… Walking right along with passerbys. I actually, went there twice during this weekend getaway. But I will feature my brunch!

A day well spent!

This had to be the perfect Monday! Just to sit and stare at the mountains! Feeling the breeze and seeing the clouds roll in. It really didn’t matter that it began to rain. The Bistro umbrella was there to keep me dry. But even if I had gotten wet; everything would still proven to be great.

Saint Paul’s Mountain Vineyard proved to be the perfect pit stop… That turned into a half day visit. I didn’t even venture on to my original destination. This was GREAT enough!

Soft Beats

You caught me! Guilty! Taking pieces of you!
That night you took flight! I couldn’t decide what to do! I couldn’t go solo. That be the right thing to do!
We all make mistakes! I learned from you! We do! We all make mistakes! I learned from you! We do! Please sleep softly leave me no room for doubt!

Beat Play

Tell me what you say now
Come again
If you can not stay down
Then you don’t have to pretend
I should have never let you in
Don’t take this personal
You know what you’ve done to me
Although it hurts I know
I can’t keep running away
I don’t need you
I don’t need you
I don’t need you
I don’t need you
But I want you
I don’t mean to
I don’t mean to
I don’t mean to
I don’t mean to
But I love you
Don’t take this personal
Don’t think your special

Unusual WINTER Blizzard

Snow is unusual for the Queen City! We get snow but is flighty! Here today and just like it appeared! It disappear! Gone tomorrow. To be honest, I like it like that. Snow is beautiful but I’m a mover and a shaker. Don’t like to be slowed down. Charlotte, NC is not prepared for this type of SNOW so the city has come to a sudden halt. This causes me to feel caged! I wanna fly like my beloved birds. But back to the topic on hand. We have been advised not to leave home if not medically necessary. Schools have been closed for 3 days now. But it is a beautiful sight. I have been going on winter land treks. I hope you enjoy my amateur photos.

Lauryn Hill is BACK

Went to the Lauryn Hill concert last night at the Fillmore. Lauryn Hill is definitely back. It’s like she never left. She was as smooth as every. 20140212-213351.jpg
Chic is way too much! I’ve been a fan since the Fugees and she went back there. I was in heaven. She did this one song that I did not recognize but she was rapping! Rapping for 5 to 6 minutes taking no breaks and seemed no breath. We were cheering! The crowd goes wild. This lady here! This lady here can spit! Really Lauryn! I mean Really! 20140212-213928.jpg
I’ve been to a lot of concerts but she ended the concert on the highest note! We were all jumping and fist pumping! I just hate my phone went dead midway through the concert. It is a night to remember!
