if you're lost you can look and you will find me

song of the day-'time after time' by cyndi lauper
yay! i'm back! it feels so good to be home. we had a blast but it's just so nice to walk into your house after a long day of driving and breathe in your own smell and let everything else fall away. home-what a lovely word.
so during the 10 hours of travel i listened to a lot of cyndi lauper with a heavy emphasis on this particular song. it was just so soothing.
on friday we went to avery island where they make, bottle and ship tabasco (if you don't know this, we love hot sauce in this family). it was cool to see the factory and tour the grounds. i'll talk more about it later when i post some pics of my trip, but these were taken at the jungle gardens that the mcilhenney folks created as a wildlife refuge. it was really quite lovely out there. it was also really quite hot. but well, i do enjoy a good sweat.
i was on this bridge and my dad said something to me about a bridal shoot so i was posing as the brides do in their pretty gowns and such. while i was vogue-ing out there, matt snapped my picture. he says it's his favorite :)
