The Angel Dress

Pleats, material, cut, flow, & feel.

Love. Friday For One.

Parked, in my driveway, finally home.
This is my, "I'm sucking at driving," look.

Essay. Hillsborough, North Carolina & Southern Charm.


View from porch at Christine's home.
(There's a baby bun in the foreground! See if you can find 'er.)
Nestled within the Occoneechi Mountains, cradled by the Eno River, guarded by stentorian evergreen pines.

The town of Hillsborough, North Carolina is many things.
