If you don't hear from me for a while, it's because I burnt up and died. Whenever it gets above 85 degrees I declare a personal state of emergency. I know 85 is not actually all that hot, what can I say, I'm sensitive. I'm a wimp. We all have areas in our lives where we wimp out, and mine are heat, shopping for pants (won't do it) and, as per our previous discussion, noise. (And elevators!) (And planning social gatherings!) Hey, what are yours? You can tell me in private if you'd like.
I've spent the majority of time since I've been home from our honeymoon sitting in my underwear next to the fan, working away. Getting up to refill my glass of ice, sitting down again. Some of my friends are absolute maniacs, just really off of the deep end, and they'll call me every now and again to ask if I'd like to go running, which is just absurd. Of course not. Call again in October.
Anyway, here are a few of the things I've been working on. I thought some of you might enjoy looking through a few of them, especially if you're local to the Blue Ridge Mountains, or even if you're not. If you really like any of them, share them! That helps me a lot. Otherwise, I'll be back very soon with the wedding photos. Stay cool! No running!
Some eye candy. Obscenely beautiful mountains, ridges and waterfalls.
Free or really cheap ways to get outside with your kids. Orchards, splash parks, butterfly houses, and more. I'm paying attention to this one myself.
I chose these hikes because they're not going to cause you to whither and die of heat. All of these hikes are shaded, alongside a river, or up high where the temps are cooler.
If you want to do something eerie, check out these ghost towns and abandoned places and odd attractions. But buyer beware- I visited the haunted tunnel and now lights go on and off in my house spontaneously and I am not joking, lying or exaggerating.

I don't mean to boast, but I know a little something about drinking beers after an adventure. As a matter of fact, as I get older, I'm paying more attention to the beer than I am the adventure; this is easy to do when the bar down the street has chocolate peanut butter cup porter on tap, plus 59 other beers. (And I'm not joking, lying or exaggerating.)
