Bridal Shower

October 12th, 2011

When my sister’s best friend and I did some brainstorming on her bridal shower, we knew she would want something different. No typical shower games at her party. With some of her BF’s cue cards and my photography skills, we came up with an AWESOME photo booth. My sister was marrying a wonderful guy who works at organic farming so of course farming would equal dress up? Right? Let some of the pics tell the story!

Cloudland Canyon Waterfall

A restful getaway…worth all the hiking. Over 600 stairs, beautiful weather, memories with family. Visit Cloudland Canyon and you’ll never forget its peace or beauty!

Shrimp and Grits

September 23rd, 2011

In all my wonderful foodie years, I’ve never had shrimp and grits together in the same dish.  I’ve been tempted to try this coastal dish many times but fear held me back….scared that once I tried it, I would lose my love of just grits alone. 

A friend and I attended the Jekyll Island Shrimp and Grits Festival 2011 recently.  We tried several dishes, a turtletina (yum), met Lindsay Scott (Go DAWGS!), strolled the beach and then ate again!  Oh, and don’t forget the shrimp and peel eating contest (children and adults).

Just a little history…cont.

July 19th, 2011

We are now much closer to St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island.  This also means more historic forts, churches and beautiful beaches to tour.  Some places we’ve visited before or as this is near my husband’s hometown, he visited many of these places as a child. 

Christ Church, Frederica and St. Ignatius Chapel at St. Simons Island is a beautiful church and peaceful area to walk the grounds.

Finally! A new place to grow…

April 1st, 2011

Moving to a new town was much harder than our move several years ago.  This time included two children instead of one and relocating my husband’s business.  With MUCH help from friends and family, we were able to settle in and start a new phase of our life.  A phase that includes being down the street from the grandparents, having less traffic and more smaller community.  To our new house, new neighbors and new adventures!

Where have I been?

February 21st, 2011

Holidays – two birthdays - a trip to the American Girl store for my daughter - grandparent visits - a new dog —— the past two months have been filled with great things. 

And it doesn’t end there, my family and I are about to embark on another new path…..more details to come!

My joy and 40!

December 20th, 2010

I celebrated a huge milestone today in celebrating 40 years!  My celebration has taken me to New York City to dinner with friends to an evening out with my wonderful husband.  Pictures are my joy, good food is my joy, being outdoors is my joy but most of all MY FAMILY is my joy.
