gettin' woody

 [scarf c/o french connection, peacoat from old navy]

This is our woodpile.  In all its glory.
When people come over, we get all excited and run them out to the side of the house with only short sleeves on and scream, look! Isn't it glorious?!
I think we've succumbed to suburbia.

You have to admit.  It is pretty impressive.
Especially since Adam chopped all that wood.
My lumberjack.

In other news, you can find me over at Megan's [Across The Pond] today.  Sharing the tale about the first dinner I ever cooked for Adam.  This story regularly comes up at family gatherings when the wine has been a'flowing.

Be sure to follow Megan.  She's my twin.  But not really.  We just pretend.

Yes, you do look like her! I was just there and I loved that story!

Abbie said...

Well, aren't you just adorable in your scarf and coat posing beside the woodpile your sweet lumberjack chopped. (I'd probably pull people out the door and scream about it too if it were at my house, but then again, I live in E. Texas where we could NEVER EVER possibly use that much wood, so I'd probably be screaming, "What were we thinking?!").

Read your "two cups of lemon juice" (dang, girl, no wonder it too you three hours!) story and laughed out loud! ; )

Well done!

Would also love it if you'd stop by for a visit!

P.S. I'm your newest follower. : )

Oh my gosh - I love your coat, it is an amazing colour. :D

Also, LOL at the lemon chicken pasta story, the whole 3 hours for a 40 minute recipe definitely sounds like something that would happen to me! Heheh. :)
