Raleigh, NC - Day 2

Photobucket

Yesterday, on the way home from the coffee shop, I meandered around on my own. I was immediately intrigued by the array of colors on every block. From the rust dripping from a window sill, to the colored doors, to a small yellow light on a white wall.

And, all this was within a short, 6-block walk. Incredible.

Last night, we hung out with some of Josh's friends at a BBQ. I felt right at home. Everyone was welcoming and friendly and it felt like we were hanging out with a bunch of close friends. Mendy even gave us a little mini concert and graced us with her beautiful songs. Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures because I didn't want to freak anyone out with my ginormous camera -- it can be a bit overwhelming for strangers :) It was a picturesque evening, including eating mulberries straight from the tree. yum....


Today, we went to a rose garden. It was almost a shame that the sun was so bright....well, it just makes my job more of a challenge ;) but the flowers were gorgeous...and it smelled heavenly.

On our walk home, we noticed a small shop named Loco Pops. Curious and hot, we decided to go see what it was. Gourmet popsicles. I had a banana chocolate chip flavored one. It was a perfect treat for a super hot, humid day. Even after coming home, I haven't cooled off. It's like a blanket of heat is always around me, sticking to everything. I definitely appreciate Utah's dry climate :)
