This one time, at Torreya

Last Saturday the rooms and I trekked over to Apalachicola Bluffs and Ravines Preserve located in Torreya State Park. It's a 3.75 mile hike (round trip) that took our group almost 3 hours to complete. This is far more impressive than it sounds considering there were some STEEP inclines! We definitely all slipped at least once (my fall involved an old mossy root that my bum and back hit HARD whilst climbing down "tree stairs"). When we reached the top, we witnessed views that we thought we'd never see inside the Sunshine State!

beautiful view from the top

a sign said this stream was "in progress"??

heading to the top

Rumor has it that the trail is the real site of the Garden of Eden, but we didn't see Adam's rib lying around anywhere ;)

Without promise of endorsement or prodding (get it? cows? prodding? c'mon!),

I'd like to announce that THIS is my product of the week:


The Ridiculously-Named-But-Best-Darn Lotion from the Lord.

Seriously y'all, this lotion is the jam.
Did you see my last post? About my old lady hands? This junk has transformed my skin! We first learned of this product when we lived in Maryland eons ago. The formula has not changed and is now a staple in my medicine cabinet. The best part? You can totes buy the 2 oz. tube at the Dollar Store.

So get a moooove on and buy some today!

Dear Roommate,

It's not sarcasm if you use it all the time. Now it's just rude.

Sincerely, other roommates

Dear Old lady,

Here are your hands back. Take them. I want my hands to be soft again.

Sincerely, body

Dear hot Sun,

Where are you?

Sincerely, Tallahassee

Dear God,


Love, me

The Last Week of Fun

School started back this week and while I know that I am blessed to have a four-day week once again, that fifth day is going to be solely devoted to my dreaded senior seminar class. In other words, this semester ain't gonna be a picnic. I'm becoming a little bit of a Concernicus over the whole situation, but I'm trying to be optimistic! Anyway, I've decided to use this first week to have fun with my friends while I still can. Ha!

Today's fun activity was a trip to El Cine to see Country Strong.
Run, don't walk, to see this movie...
...rather, run, don't walk to see any movie with Garrett Hedlund...

Here's a clip from my FAVORITE song of the movie.

Happy Friday!
