Southern Living

I never thought I would live in the South.

Those palm trees still look surreal to me. Am I on vacation? I ask myself that question often.

 We see wildlife all the time. Even when I take my trash out, I'll see ducks and other birds waddling in front of the path, or even an eagle soaring over my head.

I love how close to the water we are and the beautiful scenery we can enjoy on a regular basis.

We try to go on hikes as often as we can.

And we can get pretty close to the animals we find.

Sometimes those animals are too close for comfort, like this little guy hanging out on our front door. This is not an isolated occasion.

 I love the trees we have down here, with the hanging moss.


This however, is something I never, ever thought I would see in all my days. 
This, I don't love. 
It did make us laugh pretty hard, though. in the South...

If there were no bugs or snakes, I'd live here forever!

I was looking through pictures for this post and I found one that Ben took of a black snake right by our front door a few months ago. Phew, I'm glad I wasn't the one to see it! You probably would have heard my scream at your house!
