a few announcements (and a confession)

Hello, my loves! It's been a while, hasn't it? Over a month, in fact. I've read that in order to be a successful blogger, you should post on a regular basis. Welp. I have broken that rule many times.  But the blogging gods are obligated to forgive my absence, because I have some pretty damn … Continue reading a few announcements (and a confession)

The Paris of the South

I'm lucky enough to have more than one best friend, and I'm even luckier to count my mom among them. I know it sounds cliché (especially on Mother's Day) but it's true.

Newlyweds, Part I: Celebration!

Last February, Drew and I decided to take advantage of our long weekend and take a trip to Nashville. It's a relatively short drive from Atlanta, after all--why not? We had so many adventures planned: coffee shops, live music, a day at the library...little did I know that our weekend getaway would become a pivotal … Continue reading Newlyweds, Part I: Celebration!
