mission: MUSE - "where i live"

Beautiful Boone

In the spring of 2008, my cat Odin and I moved out of the house that we shared with my former husband into a new home of our own.  The entire lower level of a big, beautiful house was all ours and located in my favorite section of Jacksonville, the historic district of Riverside/Avondale.  The neighborhood was everything I hoped for, filled with wonderfully preserved homes and gardens and flanked by main roads dotted with delicious restaurants and unique shops.
That summer, our happy home expanded to include my best-friend-turned-boyfriend (now husband) Jamie, who took the plunge and moved down from Kentucky with his dog Boy and cat Vincent to live with us.  Later that year we adopted our cat Lolly, and my dogs Angus and Sunny eventually moved out of my ex's house and in with us too... thankfully our house and neighborhood are fit to accommodate our crazy brood!
Jamie and I are fortunate to live in an area filled with old-fashioned yet open-minded people like us who love animals, art, and the outdoors.  We are also blessed with a home-away-from-home, just up the block from our house... Boone Park.

This beautiful park is covered with trees, dotted with Narnia-esque lamp posts, and filled with winding trails that twist and turn.  We take our pups here at least twice a day every day and it is like heaven for them to explore this wonderland of scents, sights, and sounds.

Boone Park is a staple of our neighborhood and our lives... won't you join us?

Love,  Meg of Beyond Vision

  4. lovely place. wow, you have a lot of animals :)

  5. You images are just lovely...and show a side to Jacksonville that most don't see probably. There certainly is more to it than a military town!

  6. You did a wonderful job. It would make the person who has never been there (me) look at it differently when they get to go...a good thing. :)

  7. Yay yay Meg! I am
    so happy for you and
