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. Instructions on the packs were pretty straightforward-dig a hole, plant the burbs/spread the seed, water and wait 60 days. It was fun…

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.

Fall for Greenville, one of the largest food festivals in the Southeast, is one of the highlights of our year.They have 5 or 6 music stages but we go for the food. We have been back in the South for four years. Some years we don’t make it due to our work schedules but this…

Cornerstone Minerals: A Review

I like rocks and gemstones. Always have. When I was younger, I collected them. Even as an adult, I would get little bags of rocks from the Smithsonian during Chris and I’s trips to the Museum of Natural History. #nerdstatus Basically, I like pretty things and rocks/minerals have always fascinated me.

Flowers for Days

I’ve always been obsessed with flowers-drawing them, buying them, photographing them, etc. One of the reasons, I enjoyed living in Hawaii so much was the abundance of gorgeous blooms. Fuchsia Bougainvillea on the church steps, red and yellow hibiscus outside my classroom, pink tinged plumeria lining the sidewalks, and stark white gardenia in the neighbor’s…

Jianna

I’ve been “dying” to eat at this restaurant since I read about the concept. Fresh, simple, Italian fare made from scratch in a great venue in the heart of downtown Greenville. We tried to go a few times before but tried to make reservations too late both times. The upscale eatery is located above lululemon…

Flower Bar:Mother’s Day Edition

I love flowers. I love my Mom. Combining the two seemed like a great idea since she shares my love for flowers. Statice Floral decided to hold their second Open Market and Flower Bar at the L by Larkin’s on East Broad Street. The first event was held in the mill by the main Larkin’s…
