I think my love of patios began when I was in late Elementary School. Every day when I came home, I would make a peanut butter sandwich, pour a tall glass of whole milk, grab whatever iteration of Harry Potter I was reading, and sit on the back patio reading until the sun went down or dinner was served, whichever came first.

Le Jardin Francais is one of the most gorgeous floral shops I’ve ever stepped foot into. One day when I get around to finishing my Atlanta Guide, I’m going to include it in the list of places that you absolutely must visit on a trip into town. Walking into Le Jardin Francais is like walking

DO you guys like cheese? How about wine? How do you feel about combining both of these things on a patio during the warm months of summer? I hope the answer to all of those things are “I LOVE THEM PLEASE KEEP THE PATIOSPIRATION COMING.” Good! Because today starts the first of many posts brought
These past two weeks have been a complete whirlwind! If you guys remember two weekends ago I shared over on Instagram that I was working on a fun design project with the sisters who created Shanty2Chic with their in-store living room design challenge at the At Home store in Kennesaw GA. Now, as you may
I think one of my favorite candies in the entire world has to be an Almond Joy. Something about the rich creamy coconut filling makes my tastebuds start to salivate every time I think about it. I could actually do without the chocolate on it, and would be fine with it just being a pure coconut candy.
The onset of Spring means the return of my favorite leisure pastime: visiting Farmer’s Markets. I am happy that throughout the past 23 years of me living in Atlanta that there has been a resurgence in popularity for the slow food and “know your farmer” movements.
