I Live in a Swamp

I often tell people that we live in a swamp. If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I regularly comment on the weather in the swamp. I'm not kidding. It's not a metaphor or a comment on current social conditions in the world. I really DO live in a swamp.

We're on high ground, and most of our soil is quite sandy, so our house is pretty safe from flooding. It amazes even me how much I love where I live. The water is usually very quiet, but when the river is running high, you can hear it moving through the trees. Eerie? A little, but in the most delicious kind of way.


  1. Hi, girl! I'd love your swamp. Also love how you fill those pumpkin pies after they're resting safely on the oven rack. Brilliant!

    I Love your swamp too.
    Prayers, Bo

  3. We have a creek running over the corner of your hard, that gets swappy in the summer :)
