Sometimes I still pinch myself to be sure I am really here, in Greenville.  I knew back in 2007 that this is where I belong.  There is a reason; a purpose God has brought me here.  I am praying and trusting Him to show me how to do what it is I am to do on this part of my journey.

As today is kind of an anniversary of my actual move day, I celebrated.  Even celebrating the fact that yesterday I got the message the part job I had, sort of interviewed for has been filled.   And that is ok, because I’ve  always found that something better was around the corner.

I had a quick meeting with someone around 12 noon then decided I would take a mini adventure along Augusta Road (one of the most sought after areas to live).  There are a few small, very nice little strip malls along a section of Augusta Road and I found at one of them a French café “Le Grand Bakery.”  So I decided to check it out.  Just walking in there and looking at the beautiful and delicious looking goodies behind the glass case was committing a dieter’s sin.  I would have loved one of their pastries, but I decided instead on the small Quiche Vegetarian and coffee.  I chose a small table next to the window, and while enjoying my first time in this new-found café I could hear the group of ladies at a back table all speaking in French.  Ah, was I really in Greenville, SC or in France!  It sure added to the ambiance.

Next stop, about a block down the road was Foxfire Gallery & Kitchen Shops.  An interesting shop with many lovely things, but I was actually hoping to find a set of range covers for my electric stove.  No luck with that; however, I got in conversation with a young man working there.  It turns out his mother is an urban planner/designer and originally from Michigan.  He told me I should meet his mother as we have some things in common, so he gave me her name and where she works.  I got in touch with her this evening via Facebook and we agreed to meet for coffee some time soon.

Tonight’s adventure was attending a new writer’s group “Greenville Creative Writers” with Judy, my friend from here at Tapestry.  The Meetup was at Coffee Underground downtown.  It was fun, interesting, and we met more great people (my favorite thing to do…meeting more people).

So, it has been an awesome day celebrating my two month anniversary LIVING IN GREENVILLE.

I am so grateful for my blessings.

Ah, wish I were there, sitting on the rock in quiet reflection.

This is a good one for this time of year with the heat!  So, I found one I took in Greenville, SC…definitely refreshing, at least for the child enjoying the fall.

Rainbow around the sun - photo by Ann Marquette
