Harvest Time

November 22, 2017



I’m always drawn to the miniature cranberry “bogs” that show up in the grocery stores around the holidays.  It’s hard to resist plunging my hands into water and swishing those berries around.

This dance studio on the Marietta Square always has the most beautiful and intriguing window dressing.

There’s a lot of pondering going on in this picture.  I’m not sure my uncle (and aunt) knew quite what to do with me.

Slowing Down

As the seasons shift, Mother Nature is beginning to settle in for a peaceful rest.  It’s my favorite time of the year.

From Beans to a Bar

November 13, 2017









Xocolatl Small Batch Chocolate is located in the Krog Street Market in Atlanta.  I recently spent a delightful evening touring this tiny chocolate factory and learning about their bean-to-bar process.  Each bar is made from organic and ethically sourced cacao from around the world.  I was in heaven.

Golden Greeting

On our recent train trip (see previous post) we were greeted by this little smiley face when we stepped off the train in McCaysville.  I love to encounter fun surprises.

On the Rails

November 6, 2017







H and I rode the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway this past weekend with his sister and her husband, who were visiting from out of town and had never been in the North Georgia Mountains. Despite the overcast skies and threat of rain, we had a delightful time chugging our way along the Toccoa River to the sister towns of McCaysville, Georgia and Copperhill, Tennessee.  It was a twenty-six mile roundtrip adventure.
