Got to visit a couple waterfalls in South Carolina this past Sunday! Chau Ram Park was at capacity when we arrived but our wait was only a few minutes. Staff was great. Dammit if we could NOT find SC’s Blue Hole Falls. The Google Maps destination didn’t look right and we went down a couple […]
Cooling off in the Middle Oconee River with Claire, Mike, Lydian, and Kris! What a treat to float from Ben Burton Park to your friends’/neighbors’ backyard. I snapped these in the chill part- which is where you can just drift n drink under the muscadines, but there’s an area ahead with a rope swing that’s […]
Odds n ends from July that didn’t fit in my other posts: Dog pool party! I laughed so much at Lydian’s skewered dbl dogs! My talented friend Jenny made my hair look so full and fluffy. Harris Shoals. I’d never been before the pandemic and now it’s one of my favorite early morning spots. My […]
Like many, I re-discovered a love of baking back in March, when social distancing started. Over four months later, baking continues to bring me comfort. My favorite dessert to make is the simple and beautiful galette. Here are a few I’ve made (all blueberry or blueberry peach- just what I had), plus a few bonus […]
One of my 2020 blessings is getting to go on TWO separate sunrise hikes with my TWO separate Jessicas. Dawn is my favorite time of day- especially in the fug of a Georgia summer, when the late-afternoon heat can really wilt you. But I know morning people like me are freaks and it is truly […]
The UGA Botanical Gardens are lovely in every season but an extra-lush treat to see in the summer. Went with Jace on a Sunday morning. Everything felt very tropical from the recent rains.
I wish I could spend every hot day of summer in the water. These falls are only 12′ high but also 100′ wide, with a deep, refreshing swimming hole on the Chauga River. We got in at the hottest part of the afternoon and got out right before a thunderstorm broke. The perfect summer daytrip. […]
I got to petsit my coworker’s home with sweet dogs, cats, and their newest edition- CHICKENS. These silly, fluffy little hens were so fun to watch!
Sunday was my first time going down the Broad River, my first White Claw of the summer, and my first time NOT flipping out of a kayak and eating shit! Hahaaa. I saw so many turtles sunning on the rocks and sand! I didn’t want my phone to get wet so I took my lil […]
A sweet tweet that popped up in my feed recently: “Ever wish that fireworks were incredibly quiet and also didn’t disappear so quickly and also you could keep them in your home and also you could hold them in your hands?? Because, if so, I’d love to introduce you to Flowers.” Hahaaa! NO DOUBT. Jess […]
