• Managed to take a few pictures that weren’t food on this trip to Blacksburg.
  • Our region of Georgia doesn’t get the brilliant colors of fall like a lot of other places, so seeing this huge, colorful pumpkin display made me smile. Hope y’all have a good day!
  • Slowly but surely working to revive the food section of Extra Black Olives. Check out the blog today for this easy and tasty apple bread recipe. What are y’all baking?
  • I got fired today (technically, my contract was terminated). I can’t say I’m too surprised because I told my {former} boss a month ago I thought she was one of the worst supervisors I’ve ever had. I’m honestly not upset; I’m relieved. 
I’m sharing this today as a reminder that the nitty-gritty parts of life happen even when we post pretty photos and try to put our best selves forward on social media.

We’re still people building lives and chasing dreams behind our phones. I guess now I have the perfect reason and motivation to turn my blog into my job.
  • I’ve been making an effort to read more of the books I have, so my latest haul is a bit smaller. What are y’all reading?
  • Today, on my 30th birthday, I ordered grilled cheese and tomato soup for dinner then spilled said tomato soup on my white shirt. Happy birthday to me!
