A Few of My Favorite Things 2.0

When something is good (ex. Albanese gummy bears), you feel the need to tell everyone about it even if they don’t ask. Here is a non-exhaustive list of my current favorite things. Let me know if you have good suggestions of items to potentially include in future posts. Eye Buy Direct Glasses I like to…

Vic’s on the River (Savannah, GA)

The Story For our fifth anniversary dinner, Chris booked a dinner cruise on The Georgia Queen, the popular riverboat that sails past River Street in Savannah, Georgia, each night. We had seen it on our honeymoon five years earlier and remembered it looking like a fun experience so Chris bought tickets ahead of time. The…

Wannabe Plant Lady Chronicles Pt. 2: The Big Reveal

I wrote about my Wannabe Plant Lady Chronicles back in May. You can see my original post here. The bulbs and seeds we got from Lowe’s said they were foolproof which was reassuring.

Traditions die hard so now Chris and I find ourselves looking forward to an after church treat each week. Our current favorite spots are below.

Wannabe Plant Lady Chronicles Pt. 1

Sometimes you are convinced that you must have done a particular thing at some point in your life but then you are confronted with reality that you didn’t when you actually attempt said thing. I thought I had planted flowers before but apparently not. Ever since I was a child, I’ve always liked flowers-drawing them,…

Buttermilk Sky Pie

We want to try other flavors. For a church or family event, I’ll probably grab an Edwards pie from Walmart but for presentation or personal use I’d definitely pick up one of these treats.
