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 […]
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 […]
Jess and I went to pick up some peaches but I’m so obsessed with them, I’m going to give them their own post. On the way home we drove by these rays of sunshine. it was SO NICE. Thankful for a friend who is always down to stop for flowers.
Wowwowwow. Blueberries plucked from the bush are so much richer and jammier and more delicious than the berries you buy in the grocery store. We went to Damn Good Dawg Farms in Watkinsville. The Saharan dust cloud had turned the sky a dusty gray that looked very strange above us. It didn’t look like a […]
June 20, 2020 To honor the end of spring and first day of summer, we headed to Currahee to catch the sunrise. I’ve been lucky to catch the sunrise here three times now- each time has been different and wonderful. Our walk started in the dark, under a blanket of crisp stars. Over the hour, […]
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 […]
