While driving through the Smoky Mountains to get to Asheville, green overwhelmed me until I was utterly rhapsodic. There were so many different shades, I took my sunglasses off to make sure I was seeing it right. Highlighter green, deep kale green, Ninja Turtle green–it was overwhelming compared to the ever abundant evergreen trees I’ve been seeing lately. After driving through 17 states in four months, North Carolina is still my favorite. When I told my mom this, she said, “Oh good, then you don’t have to move to Idaho!”

We’ll see! I hate that I didn’t have time to see many Carolina friends. I am going home sooner than I thought to attend a memorial service for an extended family member.

I’m loving snuggling with precious baby boy Holden, my college friends’ 17-day-old son, in Raleigh until Friday. He’s perfect.
