Pretty in Pink

Just something pretty to make you happy inside.  I took this picture on a camping trip last weekend, and it was basically the only thing I saw the entire time that wasn’t just green and brown.  It was kind of cool, though, because the flower was so little and yet stood out so much.

I don’t know a single girl who wouldn’t love to stand out in a crowd the way this flower did in the forest, pretty in pink.

My City Obsession

July 30, 2009 at 1:18 pm (Fun(ny), Life) (, , , , , )

About six months ago, I had never driven into Atlanta.  In fact, I really hadn’t spent any real amount of time in a big city.  I grew up inside the “Alpharetta bubble,” and then I went to college inside the “Furman bubble.”  Not that I don’t love Alpharetta and Greenville, because I truly do.  It’s just that I spent 20 years imagining every big city to be just like Gothem City from Batman.  I was wrong.  Atlanta (and big cities in general) has definitely earned a special place in my suburban heart.  Now, I can’t even imagine my life without Atlanta.  The friends I’ve made there and experiences I’ve had there are completely irreplaceable and unforgettable.  Thank you to everyone that’s been a part of that.

Plus, I don’t think anyone can deny how incredibly beautiful Atlanta looks at night.  I love it.
