During one of our shopping ventures into the mountains, we told Anne to "beware" and not to drink the Glogg that was sure to be offered to her. I had tasted it before, and (yikes) it is really bad. I actually thought she had listened and wasn't even the least bit interested. (Wasn't that [...]
Right now, it seems that I'm living between two different worlds. I guess I could say it is the tale of two cities. This is the Christmas tree and the dogs at the Atlanta house.
The Marietta Square has been a special place for weeks. On this night, I was on a hunt for colorful Christmas ornaments, decorative birds, and candles.

The house in Atlanta is still being decorated, but we're getting closer to having it done. The tree from northeast Georgia is wonderful! For $25, I would buy a second one in a minute. I realize there needs to be a fire in the fireplace to make this a "more" perfect photo. But the temperatures [...]

Every tree on the lots is the same price—really big ones, medium ones, and smaller ones (though I don't know where the "smaller" trees where [...]
This past weekend I was all over the Sautee Nacoochee Valley in northeast Georgia. I'm sure I'll end up rambling back through that area at some point this weekend, especially since I know Christmas decorations will be going up. But I just had to go ahead and post photos of the fireplace in the Old [...]
