now in greenville: doughnuts


ladies and gentlemen, may i have your attention please: 
doughnuts have finally come to greenville! 

the doughnut draught is over and you can officially thank the sweet shannon mercado. shannon's whipping up some crazy good doughnuts every saturday for the foreseeable future and serving them at her circa doughnuts tent over at the village of west greenville farmer's market. just what the doctor ordered! i'm going to go out on a ledge here and say that these artisan doughnuts are the best thing to happen to greenville since sliced bread...and food trucks. they are that good, people. just imagine a warm, old fashioned cake doughnut with a sour cream glaze melting in your mouth. if you don't believe me, circa sold out in about two hours, so get there early next weekend! thank you shannon and congratulations! :) 

p.s.
you can stay in the know about all thing circa doughnuts on twitter and instagram

tuesday pick me up


tuesdays are usually my least favorite day of the week. so far from any sort of weekend, past or future. luckily, i had the day off yesterday, though, so today wasn't too bad. and i was able to use my free day to edit some photos, which i will be posting later this week! it was nice having that extra day to catch up on blog stuff, and it made me think of this quote from julia child. i hope your tuesday was just a little bit better than usual too, and check out unraveleddesign on etsy for this and other adorable prints :)

janine's graduation


i bought the mini collection from the a beautiful mess photoshop actions, so i thought i would try them out on a few snaps from janine's graduation. (congratulations, on not only the masters but the job, as well!!!) the first three use jean and the last two celeste. the actions are super easy to use, and that's coming from someone who has just the tiniest bit of experience editing pictures, and best of all, they're only $10. i can't wait to play around with these a little more on my savannah photos! (sorry the sizes are a bit wonky; some shots are from my real camera and some are from my iPhone.)

summer read: ship of gold


driving home from work today, i heard the best story on npr. justin and i are both firm believers that south carolina is the most underrated state. (beautiful beaches, friendly cities, amazing food, beer aplenty, what more could you ask for?) so, this story only reaffirmed what i already knew.

picture this: you're wading in some beautiful breakers, right off the coast of south carolina, when all of a sudden, you feel something with your toes beneath the sand. you reach down, and lo and behold, it's a brick of solid gold. the SS Central America sank in 1857, and took several tons of gold down with it. now, they're finally excavating the last coins and bricks after many years of debate. i'm a sucker for a true story, and i'm thinking gary kinder's book would make a great summer read!
