Juice Drop Out & Accepting Applications

c700x420

It’s official. I’m a cleansing/detox/juicing drop out.

*smh*

I honestly tried and I failed superbly. I don’t think I have ever seen anyone fail as well as I did. However, I am owning my short comings and focusing on a new goal.

My social life.

Here’s the thing, I am a really, really social creature. In Macon, in Birmingham, and everywhere else in between, I’ve always had a big, diverse circle of friends. I realize that I moved here and basically hit the ground running only a short while ago, however, this is the longest I have ever gone without creating a nice little social network. Usually by now I would have some new BFF and would be meeting up with friends for shopping, drinks, girl get-aways and the like.

Unfortunately, that’s not exactly what has transpired. Granted – I planned a wedding and took a big trip and help design our future home and a ton of other really big things. I’m not sure who is to fault here. Is it me? Or is it the community? Or is it just the state of things at 44 years old.

Who knows!?

However, I am not one to idly stand by and let life just swoosh by without at least putting a little effort in. Things can’t be that different in South Georgia.

I decided to pursue this new social circle the way I would a career: strategically and with direct intent. With that being said, I am accepting applications for friendship.

😉

It’s open auditions and YOU could possible be my new favorite person.

Now WHY would you want to hang out with me? Well, I have lots of good qualities. Let’s see if I can drum up a few:

With it being summer time, I think this is a great asset. I have a pool and a lake. Even when we build in Plains, this is still staying in the family. You could join me on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, floating in the pool, gossiping and sipping margaritas. Or you could bring your fishing pole and get in one of the two boats. Okay… so maybe the outdoors aren’t your thing…

I do love a good margarita. I mentioned that one, right? We could meet up for a drink from time to time.

18194817_10155223942509929_6219824011928470939_n

And bowling. I LOVE bowling. But I am TERRIBLE at it. I love to laugh at myself and this is the perfect place to do it. I know we have bowling in Albany and Columbus and SOON in Americus!

I’m a huge wine slushy girl! We could meet up at Wolf Creek Plantation and grab a cheese platter and sip some good local wine.

I mentioned I like wine… right? 😉 So a tee-totaler would not fit in very well with me. I don’t drink a lot, but one glass of wine ever so often is always fun!

17861525_10155166588234929_5823604853503513494_n

I love to cook and to host friends. We live in a small cabin by a lake – and there is nothing better than whipping up something delicious to share!

17361991_10155099849704929_7636823125891057945_n

I like to travel! Have passport – will travel. You HAVE to be up for something like this! (That’s me in Egypt.)

17190904_10155050885014929_6414047011085503499_n

And that’s me in Paris.

Book store shopping is one of my favorite things to do with friends. Looking for that next great read to add to my collection is always much more fun to do with friends. Oh yeah, you have got to have a love of books. I can’t relate to non readers very well.

17038914_10155032307909929_3143353376319288677_o

I’m really into taking selfies. For fun. Not for vanity’s sake. I have a handful of truly talented photographer friends and most of my circle back home are actual full time artists. Be camera ready!

16836422_10155032315339929_2610163882513021257_o

And man oh man – do I love to throw a party! I’d expect you to attend!

16819517_10155015380979929_4423990601731640297_o

Did I mention I love touring wineries? 😉

16797894_10155015397744929_3984873426676389500_o

And I love a good campfire. Again – I live by a lake/pond at a cabin. This is a great way to spend a evening with me! Bring your significant other. We are looking for other couples to hang with also!

15994766_10154912236814929_8918471686385530621_o

And Mexican food. OMG…. Want to meet up for dinner? Invite me out for Mexican.

15781413_10154855141509929_520395782552977511_n

And I am totally open to attending your special religious holiday celebrations.

10384445_10152575254224929_2446164641572748297_n

Seriously…. I can go either way! I’m extremely fascinated by other cultures. My friend circle should reflect accordingly!

15747454_10154850818414929_2229953455228360826_n

And I’m a big supporter of a wide variety of friends. I do NOT support racists, homophobes, or any other phobes. Except spiders. You can totally hate spiders.

15032277_10154703631994929_6083878071800238547_n

And I LOVE LOVE LOVE to grill. If you don’t like grilling…. then… then… I just can’t be friends with you.


And due to the nature of my job… sometimes you might get to meet some really important people. I can’t be embarrassed to bring you around! lol

14046104_10154437915049929_7168280334248619911_n

If we go out in public – you have to understand that I have never met a stranger. Case in point above.

13043416_10154082526299929_5730866392493701185_n

And if you need some time to decompress… I’m always up for swinging on the front porch and sipping coffee. I really do offer good advice. However, you must be prepared, I don’t mince words.

Are you into fresh, organic berries? Well… in the fall we can pick scuppernogs and in the summer we can pick blueberries. I did mention we have a farm… right?

11017486_10153519957824929_6037912561085931785_n

Oh… and a beach house. Yes, the Kirksey’s have a beach house. No, we don’t rent it. But if you and I are really close, I just might invite you down!

10731132_10152863034789929_40431143094553811_n

And I am a big Alabama fan. Though one BFF is a GA Dawg fan and the other is an Auburn fan… it is important that we get a handle on this rivalry sooner, rather than later.

10492386_10152671825544929_611348253663677542_n

I like outdoor adventures. Well… keep it simple. But I am open to a few!

1016880_10152796954444929_1530760002071487423_n

I am the crazy cat lady. If you are allergic – this isn’t going to work.

858818_10151450668084929_2038617842_o

I am a big believer in celebrating birthdays! (Yours included!) And I love to theme it out. Like this 40th Bday for me. It’s a Breakfast at Tiffany’s theme…. without the escorts. lol 😉

842936_10151389374008349_2046487015_o

And just know when I say I can throw a party… I mean… BIG parties/events. I’m a professional at this. Seriously. And yes, I’m always judging other people’s events. lol

267818_10151461907594929_292929483_n

And I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE to dance. I danced for many, many years. No, I don’t look like the dancer type… but boy do I love to!

176694_10151223797288349_1331448769_o

You have got to be open to art. I mean… I’ve worked at two different museums. I ran one of them. My mother is an artist and ran a gallery. It’s sort of in our blood.

If you think you are up to the task… then maybe we should get to know each other better.

I’ve always viewed finding new friends sort of like dating, you hang out a few times to see if you click. Maybe I’ll find that new tribe that just clicks. I’m really hoping it will come sooner, rather than later.

In the meantime… I’ll build that home with my dream guy, run the tourism in my community, and continue to do the things I love..

Even if it is by myself. Because that’s the kind of confidence you need to be my friend. You got to be able to go it alone.

Class 5 clingers are not allowed.

Until next time…
