Not so Still Life

I leave today for a week to Bluffton, SC with a mixed bag of emotions.  It starts a whirlwind chain of events which includes the opening of a new Panera and ends with seeing so many of my friends at Vanessa and Mike's wedding in Florida.  I cant wait!  But long days are ahead of me.  Think something like 6am-10pm.  And that's just the clocked-in hours, not actually counting my drinking time.

So wish me luck!  And let's hope my preparation is enough to get me through this.

Carolina's Flowering Trees

Oh, the glorious return of internet!!!!

We now start the journey of catching up.  So much to catch up.  So. Much.

We start by identifying that spring is sprung.  It sneaked up on me, without me realizing that the winter had finished.  I guess that's not a bad thing.  But where did March go?  For that matter, where did February go?  This seems a common theme in my life lately.  Perhaps I work too much?  

I already know the answer to this.

This marks my first spring in Columbia, South Carolina, which has filled my life with so much beauty.  It seems that every single tree here flowers.  How wonderful!  So, I give you the flowering trees of Columbia!  A set of photos that is quickly growing with each beautiful day.

I believe these are Japanese Flowering Cherry Trees.  Notice the bees that swarm them.  

I got buzzed a few times taking these pictures.

Oh, Internet, how you allude me!

I'm currently stealing internet from Panera, but when I get my own (please be Monday, please be Monday!!!), I will recant methodically everything of importance.  

Well, maybe not everything.  But at least everything that I've taken pictures of.

Starting with this:

And my eye is much better, thank you.
