A few weeks ago, we had an absolutely glorious weekend in Savannah. Ryan's apartment is lovely, and the historic distric is beautiful beyond words. I was overwhelmed by how much it reminded of Florence, and somehow it hinted that I could live a different kind of life. One where I walked my dog, and sat in parks, and created beautiful things, while living in a historic home that was covered with ivy.
Sometimes it doesn't seem fair that we only have one life, just one shot. There are so many things that I want to do, and yet they aren't compatible at all. I want children and lots of pets and a quilting room and a yard and barbeques and family close by. I also want to live in an area where you can walk to everything, getting skinny while eating incredible food. I want an office job, where you put on heels and go to work for 8 hours and then leave it there and come home. I want to be a designer, I want to be a libriarian, I want to be a reading coach, I want to be a bed tester. It's like there are five different people living inside me, and they are fighting to escape and show themselves. Maybe none of those things will make me happy. Maybe I am just restless. Who knows? Why is it that other people seem to have it together? Do they, or does it just look that way from the outside?

On another note: what I ate-
Pasta Lorraine (with chicken added) at Firefly Cafe
goat cheese
caramelized red onions
(pan) fried leeks
roasted red pepper
portabella mushrooms

Pork Plate at Sweet Leaf
pulled pork
deviled eggs
corn pudding
mac n cheese

holy shite, meaghan. your time in savannah looks simply marvelous. i am quite jealous of all the good food you ate while i am sitting here, hungry, at jury duty.


my week has been so crappy.


i know how you feel about so many people trying to get out of your skin. i, too, suffer from multiple personality disorder of a sort.

it will all work out. all we need to do is eat equal amounts of gelato and brownies, right? and i'll say, my gelato side is pretty low right now...
