May 2018 St Helena Island with my mom and Ifetayo (I’ve known her since childhood but this was my first time seeing her again as an adult)! This was a lovely weekend. We also passed thru Charleston and the Sheldon Church ruins too.
2007 My mom helped me settle in my first week living in Seattle and we took daytrips to Mount Rainier and the Hoh Rainforest (I didn’t drive then). I only made it back to each of those parks one more time while I lived there but they’ve been on my mind a lot recently. I […]
Thank you, Alonzo Auto Parts & Wrecker Service and Crispy Printz for this fence of painted buses. It is an art oasis and I’m excited to see how it evolves next year.
Usually, I would prefer a mountain trail to a waterfall trial. BUT Hemlock Falls is an exception- it’s an easy and and relatively flat walk (no climbing back up afterwards!), with beautiful creek views along the way. I liked how the trail was wet from the water and covered in slippery roots. I was the […]
I spent Memorial Day weekend in the North Georgia mountains and it was SO NICE. Saturday, I hiked Blood Mountain with friends. Sunday and Monday I went to a small cabin by myself in Sautee Nacoochee. It’s the best decision I’ve made while social distancing and I’m currently trying to see if I can book […]
I was a bit nervous when I was invited to hike Blood Mountain. It’s definitely a workout, but well-worth it for the view at the top. What a treat to sit on those rocks under the sun, eating peach galette and watching the lizards dart around. Here’s hoping I can psych myself up to hike […]

Happy Birthday!! OMGGG This is Cooper’s best friend. They visit pretty regularly! Martin with Kristy and […]
Feburary 29, 2020. Leap year! The most stunning herald of spring. 50 acres of fields, valleys, and hillsides dotted with sunshine. My heart felt so full being surrounded by 20 million daffodils- a truly special place.
2017, 2018, 2019. Every time I go, I hike down to the waterfalls (it’s always a dry, hot day and the falls are merely a trickle), then back up to the the overlook. I keep ending up here alone, and there really is a healing effect in letting your head empty out over the 1000′ […]
May 2017 Athens Business Rocks is Nuçi Space’s annual fundraiser, where local businesses form bands and compete for charity and glory. This is one of many events that cannot happen this year (Nuçi’s is currently focusing on the very worthy Garrie Vereen Memorial Fund). I feel really lucky that Flagpole let me be the demogorgon […]
