From the time Sister and her Mister first discovered Rosemary Beach, a tucked away Gulf Coast gem, it’s been our family vacation destination. This little slice of Heaven is where we relax, unwind and enjoy each other’s company for two glorious weeks a year. It’s the kind of place where you park the car on arrival and go by bike or foot for the rest of the week. Enjoying a handful of divine pools, what seems like miles of pure white sandy beaches and an ocean of clear blue, this is a place we intend to come many, many more times. Our littles have all learned to say “Rosemary Beach” before they even thought about saying “Altanta” – afterall, they’ve each been coming here from the time they were born.
And since we traded in our second week at Rosemary for Disney this year, we sure were thankful that Sister and her Mister let us tag along on their week!! With that, I’m officially kicking off Rosemary Beach 2011.
PS. Those road-tripping baskets went over pretty well. Honey and I still suffered through a few miles of Cookie’s screaming for no apparent reason at times but, after all, he is just two :-) Childhood friend B let’s her kids help pack their own and I think that’s a fantastic idea!!
I travel with the littles a lot… as in once a month I load them up, along with an assorted and extensive trunk load of toys, bikes, balls and other can’t-possibly-live-without paraphernalia, to make the four hour drive down to Savannah for a week. All is good and well once we arrive (and that trunk… Read More
The PCP helped me whip up a batch of red and blue flavored popcorn for our Fourth of July sweets and treats table. It was easy, festive and pretty delish to boot. Using the recipe below, we mixed up one batch of red (cherry) and one batch of blue (berry). Party Popcorn 8 cups… Read More
There’s nothing I love more in the summer than basking in the sun lost in the pages of a great book. And in the course of one unproductive, sleepless week I gobbled up what I’ve dubbed “a trilogy of Southern reads.” Good Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen was just a sweet read about… Read More
Do you ever mentally decorate a place that you don’t own and likely never will? Maybe I’m just “mental”, but I find myself doing it way too often. It’s like a favorite past-time for me. So, go with me here…as I’m savoring the pages of Garnet Hill last night, I decide that if I had a… Read More
I could go on and on about all of the delightful little shops and eateries dotting Atlanta’s Westside. Today I would like for you to meet Star Provisions – a shop and eatery all rolled up into one sensory dream spot. Attached to the famed and celebrated Bacchanalia (at which I have yet to dine),… Read More
I have been anxiously awaiting the day I would say buh-bye to the last of the basement’s heinous blue carpeting complete with forty years of wear, tear and stains. Ewww, the stains. So, in a budget conscious and little friendly manner, we (ie. Honey) stripped out the nastiness and painted the stairs and hand rail. … Read More
