Finally this week, we’ve gotten a good dose of sunshine!  I was dropping off meals to a client and humming a little John Denver to myself, enjoying the glory of the warmth on my face.  I got into the car, turned on am 1690, and “Sunshine on My Shoulders” had just begun.  Whaaatttt?!?!?!  Apparently the […]

It’s a sunshine-y, sticky Tuesday in Georgia, and I am getting back on track.  I missed y’all last week, but I was tending to important baby-welcoming business.  I became an aunt again- for the third time, yay!- and traveled up to South Jersey to lend my family an extra pair of hands.  My time there […]

Hello, friends!  If you’re reading this, you haven’t fully melted yet.  Amazing!  The past few days have been the hottest EVER recorded for the Atlanta area.  When it’s 106 degrees outside in Georgia, it pretty much feels like you have to swim through the humidity just to move.  You can actually slice the air with […]

Hello there, friends.  It’s a peaceful Monday morning, and I find myself in awe.  I started my day by reading this inspiring update about Georgia girl Aimee Copeland’s progress.  I was struck by her perspective.  After losing limbs and nearly her life, Aimee articulated her feelings while enjoying her first hour of sunshine in 49 […]

Oh, it’s another grey Monday morning, making it difficult to shake off the weekend and delve into the work week.  I know, we need the rain…but I’d like to stay snuggled under the covers with my dog and play hooky from the real world a little while longer.  I’m sure that many of the vendors […]

As I write, I am devouring a bowl of Atlanta Fresh Greek yogurt mixed with a drop of local honey and fresh Georgia peaches.  Nom, nom, nom!  Spring is the best!! Yesterday was Sunday, and the Grant Park Farmers Market was packed at noon.  In previous years, farmers and vendors would begin winding down and […]

Friday already??  This week zoomed on by.  So much happening in preparation for the big Memorial Day Weekend!!!  It all started with our Sunday trip to the market, where spring veggies were available by the bushel- full. Radishes and broccoli continue to be harvested, and turnips are flourishing.

Ahh, nothing like a weekend full of sunshine, local festivals with amazing live bands, birthday celebrations, cookouts, time with friends, and peaches. Yup, it’s week two of the peaches in Georgia and, as we walked up to the Grant Park Market today, a truck full of ’em was backing up to Pearson’s peach stand to […]

It’s a rainy Sunday evening, and the ground is well-soaked, as were some of the farmers and vendors who hauled their stock up to the Grant Park Market this morning.   It was pretty quiet out there today.  I think lots of people were connected to their couches, listening to the rain from inside their cozy […]

Life is good.  Spring time sunshine and cool breezes abound, and everything is so green and lush.  It’s officially my favorite season in Atlanta.  When I lived in the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia, the falls were absolutely majestic- leaves like rainbow colored tapestries decorating the hills.  But here, spring takes the cake as the most […]
