We started talking about and planning this weekend last July … we chose Thomasville because it’s not too far for a long weekend (about 4 to 4-1/2 hours driving time) and we wanted to visit The Bookshelf in person. We … Continue reading Thomasville Weekending.
This past weekend was our 13th(!!!yes, this amazes all of us!) … and happy to report it lives up to all our shared expectations. From my perspective, the weekend is all about sharing this place with my family-who-are-friends. Here’s what … Continue reading Beaufort 2023.
Thank you all for your good travel wishes … our trip to Thomasville was amazing! I hesitate to call it a “day trip”; door to door, it was 15 hours for me (and several of those hours were in the … Continue reading Thomasville.
I left home dark early Monday morning and slept in my own bed Thursday night. Looking back at the photos, I’m really impressed with how much I saw in that short time. Lauren and her husband Bill are wonderful hosts! … Continue reading Santa Fe.
Welcome home me! Our 12th(!!*) visit to Beaufort was memorable in all the good ways. I just spent a few hours looking back at this year’s photos and previous years’ blog posts (#beaufort) and wow. This place is rich with … Continue reading Beaufort 2022.
Y’all might want to get a beverage and a snack! …and a jacket. or at least a windbreaker 😉 Late September and early October in Canada looks – and feels! – a lot different than it does here. but maybe not so much for where you live. So that’s our trip … in a little under 2-1/2 minutes 🙂 As I was compiling this, and sorting through the hundred or so videos, I was reminded of a few of my favorite things about the trip. And since it’s Friday, I’ve narrowed the list to five: Cappucinos on demand. Oh man … Continue reading Canadian Autumn | The Movie.
Happy Friday, friends! Today I have the first post about our Canadian trip. I’m still thinking about how I’ll share it all, but I’ve decided it’s best to start with an overview of our itinerary. We flew to Montreal on Thursday, September 19 and explored the city until Saturday afternoon (September 21) when we boarded the ship (Seabourn’s Quest). We sailed that evening, made a loop around Newfoundland (the big island with L’Anse aux Meadows and St. John’s) and returned to Montreal. We docked in Montreal on Thursday, October 3 and flew home. We made seven stops along the way: … Continue reading Canadian Autumn | Intro and Yarn.
Hello friends and happy Friday! It’s hard to believe it’s been ten days since I arrived back in Atlanta. Thankfully my body has adjusted (that five hour time change was a doozie for at least a week) … but looking back over all the photos and video from my trip, I can tell there are definitely still parts of my heart and my mind that might stay in Bristol for a while (or at least the “three to five years” that Sara will be living there). I toyed with the idea of making this post fit my typical Friday TGIF … Continue reading A Love Letter to Bristol.
Hello August! I do love a month with five Fridays – especially because I will likely miss a TGIF post for two of them while I’m in England. Honestly, I’m having trouble thinking beyond my trip right now – and I do love playing around with words – so this post is all about what I’m welcoming for that experience: Two of us. I thought for sure I’d written a post about what an awesome travel partner Sara is, but I can’t find it, so maybe I didn’t. In any event, we started traveling together – two of us – … Continue reading TGIF | Hello August.
Hello friends and happy Monday! …especially after what was – for us! – a FIVE DAY weekend. Yep, we left for the lake early Wednesday and enjoyed a very full day and night there with Katie and her family before driving home Thursday afternoon. I shared three of my favorite photos from the trip with y’all on Friday. Here are a few more …and – of course – a video (36 hours collapsed into about that many seconds) whoa, no wonder we were tired 😉 The pool, the grounds, s’mores, fireworks, and of course the lake … the Ritz does … Continue reading July 4th Weekending.
