I must say I had no idea that I was in such good company with my filthy hair. So glad so many of my fantastic blog readers are grease monkeys, too!
Many of you accurately guessed the location of my afternoon meeting.
I drove about 40 minutes south of Ocala to meet with the associate publisher of a local magazine in The Villages, Florida.
The Villages is an active retirement community, with a population of more than 80,000 residents.
It’s a place where golf carts are nearly as prevalent as regular cars!
To be honest, I kind of want to live there when I retire. The Villages is a happenin’ place! They have activities available for residents all the time. From polo to card games to cooking classes and tennis and golf, there’s something fun going on every single day.
I want in!
So, at the ripe old age of 26, why was I there this afternoon?
I had a meeting with the associate publisher of The Villages magazine to discuss freelance writing opportunities.
We met at a Starbucks located in the center of The Villages and chatted away for about an hour, discussing story ideas, writing style and more.
I slurped down an iced passion tea before I had a chance to snap a picture.
The meeting went really well and I hope to tackle a freelance piece for the magazine in the near future!
I arrived home from The Villages around the same time that Ryan arrived home from work.
Within 15 minutes of walking in the door, we meandered into the lobby to take advantage of the hotel’s dinner buffet.
At long last, a truly delicious hotel meal.
I topped a big salad with the main course for the evening, succulent pulled pork!
I went back for seconds of the pork. Ryan and I were both big fans.
Off for a quick walk outside with Ryan before curling up in bed to read more of Sarah’s Key! Can you believe I’m already more than halfway done? I could not stop reading last night and read for an hour after dinner. I can’t stop!
