Visiting 'home'

Happy belated Independence Day!

For the first time in forever, I had the Fourth of July off. Actually, it was three days. And it was amazing. It was a chance to visit Eastern North Carolina. I consider this area home because it is the place where I feel like I found myself.

I hadn't been back since I moved in February. I have been homesick so I didn't want to go back. When I left SC on July 5, I was more than ready to go back. I just meandered up I-95.

I exited after Fayetteville because I wanted to have a pit stop in Goldsboro, NC so I could go to my favorite Goodwill and hit up Books-a-Million. 

I never go thrift store shopping with a clear goal in mind. I always start in shoes and then head to dresses. I take a break and go to books. Then it is back to skirts and shirts. I have mastered the art of the scan while making my way down the different rows. Overall, I brought some books, a purse and a cool pair of boots.

Once back on the road, I headed for exit 171 for Roanoke Rapids, …

It's been awhile...

It will be five months on Thursday since I moved back to South Carolina. I am finally adjusting to moving away from ENC and Pickle Land. I have learned to take it day by day. The positive bonus of all of this is being able to see JJ more and to go to his school activities.

Recently, we had an early holiday together!

Overall, it was a wonderful time! I missed my friends and ENC but I am closer to him!

1. I am thankful for being a reporter!
2. I am very thankful for my son!
3. I am thankful for my life!
