Away We Go


Keith and I never had a honeymoon.
I don't even have a wedding band.
Money was tight and since the wedding,
things have never really slowed down.

Charlie asked me when the last time was that we got away,
just the two of us,
for some time together.

16 months ago.

To Charleston for a long weekend,
to celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversary.

So Keith and I decided it's time.
We gotta get outta here.

We leave here in a few hours to head to the coast-
to Wilmington just until Sunday.
Two nights away in a different town,
with salty sea air and crab cakes and shops on the water in the historic district.

I have big plans for hand-holding.
And not thinking.
And getting sand in my shoes.

It will be magic.
I have decided.

But!
Before I go I wanted to post these two pairs of earrings.
Sort of whole milk versions of the "In This Moment" dangles.
Inspired by spring and song and stomping boots.
Full skirts.
Whiskey.

Warm and weathered and made to jangle.
Light as air.
Full of fun.

. . . Laugh!

heart,
jj

  4. Wilmington is my home and right now I'm in Europe missing my home. Enjoy the beach for me and the historic district. Eat at Circa 1920 on Front Street (they're doing road work, sorry!). Get the chocolate sushi, you'll love it. You'll have a lot of fun...yeah...you'll have a lot of fun.
