Rancho Pillow in Texas

Whewwwwwww! That's about all I can say about the whirlwind of travel I've experienced lately.  It's been such a fun and exhausting time of flying from one city to the next and enjoying so many diversified cultures in this great country of ours. From Round Top, TX and then on to NYC for a few days and this weekend, I'm heading to Savannah for a Georgia Ramble home tour, so that should be fun too … [Read more...]

Family Time in New Orleans

I just did a recent update on the family, but since we just got back from another fast weekend trip down to New Orleans, I thought I'd share what we did this visit.  My sister and I went down and took mom with us, she will continue to travel with us as long as she can and she always enjoys seeing those grand baby girls, so it's a win-win for all.  They are getting to know their great grandmother, … [Read more...]

Southern Wedding at Roselawn Museum: Cartersville, GA

I've got a fun post to share with you today.  You've all met my dear friend, Vicki.  I've shared her on my fashion posts and it's been awhile since she has appeared on my blog, but her youngest son, Tanner, just got married and it was a fun wedding to attend.  Vicki put together a rehearsal dinner at their church fellowship hall and asked me to help her with the tables so I did and we got that all … [Read more...]

Charming Apalachicola, FL

As a final part of my recent coastal vacation, today I'm sharing the charming town of Apalachicola, FL.  As I mentioned earlier, the only time I've visited this town was 5 years ago with my friend, Vicki and it was a quick drive through the little coastal ton and a drive out to St. George.  It has always stuck with me as being such a quaint town and I can see why people love it here.  It doesn't … [Read more...]

Lovely St. George Island, FL

If you've never been to St. George Island, you're in for a treat with this post. It truly is more like Old Florida used to be on the Gulf.  Sitting on the Gulf of Mexico and surrounded by Apalachicola Bay, there are unspoiled beaches, with large and small beach cottages, but no high rises to be seen.  Now I do have to say that the sand is not quite as white and sugary as the sands of Destin and … [Read more...]

Feature Friday: The Hays House

After Haven, I took a couple days to recuperate and then left for the beach on Wednesday for 4 nights.  Mark and his entire extended family go to the beach every August and stay on St. George Island, FL for a whole week in beach houses.  Once it was decided that I would go down there after Haven was over, I looked online to book a place for myself.  I knew that Apalachicola was close and looked on … [Read more...]
