Excitement and exhaustion.
We're back from a weekend spent in Upstate South Carolina -- one of our favorite places to be.
The more we do trips the more we learn how to handle them with less stress although traveling now is far from easy. On the front end: anxiety. On the tail end: brain and body so so tired. A whole lot of medical supplies to put away. Lots of laundry.
But what comes in between is always worth it.

| I liked this picture of Jimmy and I|
Jimmy looks way crooked in his chair
Maybe because his chest strap is slanted
Friends with kids.
Friends with kids and beer.
And kids who were completely enamored with Jimmy's contraptions.
|Me, Jimmy and our former co-worker/current friend Melissa|
We should take our show on the road..
|Dear friend Michelle and I go way way back and I adore her and how|
silly she and Jimmy are.
This was a long overdue visit. So glad she made time for us.
|Man Mani, anyone?|
I swear Jimmy can hear his nails grow and gets on me for not tending to them as much as he'd like
This time -- I let someone else do it.
Really I was taking a picture for my Mom to show her I was wearing the earrings she got me
|Jimmy's filthy martini with bleu cheese stuffed olives. |
Three of them.
And he didn't share.
|Jimmy got Shrimp and Grits|
We had dinner at one of our favorite restaurants in all of the land: High Cotton
|I got the chicken dish (shocking!) but it was quite tasty|
and the garlic mashed potatoes were like, the creamiest I've ever had.
I ate some before my brain could remember to snap a picture

As weird as that sounds... It was really good.
The brown stuff is sesame seeds baked/fried in butter. kinda crunchy. holy ravioli.
I'm way fatter now but it was a good trip. Jimmy was a trooper even though he didn't sleep all that well. As much as we love Greenville, it felt good to return to Atlanta.
We're happy tired.
Good moments were had and it was good to get Jimmy out for the weekend.
