UNCC Botanical Gardens

Good morning my dears, 
 
Springtime in the Carolinas is magical. The flowers begin to bloom and the petals that blow off in the wind leave colorful walkways - like confetti. The weather, besides the rain, is an ideal high 60s - high 70s so we can wear our sun dresses and sandals again. Hallelujah! 

What better way to get back outdoors in nature than take a trip to a botanical garden? We live in close proximity to a few different botanical gardens, but this was our first time an the University of North Carolina Charlotte botanical garden. The campus is beautiful, surrounded by trees, nature trails with walking paths, streams, and gardens to explore. There's no admission, but an honor code donation box that helps to keep these gardens taken care of. Here's a glimpse at our time there.

Pinehurst, NC With Mum

Good afternoon my dears,

We recently had an overseas visit from my Mum. On her first day here we went to brunch and then home décor shopping (on a quest to find a deviled egg dish). Then, the following day we went on a day-trip to the charming and idyllic village of Pinehurst, NC which I wanted to share with you today. 

Pinehurst, NC is about an hour-and-a-half drive from our home and is where we celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed spending the day here for our anniversary that we put it on our calendar to come and visit every year. My favorite times to visit (if your not a golf player or golf watcher) is during the spring, when all the flowers are blooming, or in the fall, when the leaves are colorful and crunchy. Also highly recommend high tea at Lady Bedford's Tea Room, although call and reserve in advance, as its a popular place for locals to celebrate.

New TV In The Family Room

Good afternoon my dears,

When we moved into our home, a year ago, we decided to turn the third floor - would be sixth bedroom - into a family room. Firstly, we don't need six bedrooms, and secondly, this space upstairs is cozy and has the best view in the house of the Moon.

We had a tiny television, it often left us squinting at the screen and turning up the volume to hear as if we were elderly folk in an old folks home. Have you ever encountered that problem? So we knew that we'd have to start saving for an eventual upgrade. Which we just did. 

We bring up a tray with tea or coffee, a few snacks, and settle up here in the evenings to watch our DVR'd shows. Our cats, Boo and Milly also enjoy coming and spending time with us up here. Other than an hour or two in the evenings we don't watch any other television throughout the day. How about you? Do you watch a lot of television?

Here's a sneak peek...



...as you can see, our family room still has a bit of a new home feel. Eventually, I would like to add a country green hue to the walls, frame some maps that we acquired of North America and Europe to put behind the couch, and give it a more lived in feel.
