When a world class architect builds a museum in your hometown, it is big deal. Forty years later, when a second architect is hired to expand the revered original, the art world holds its breath. The Renzo Piano Pavilion, sitting 65 yards west of Louis Kahn’s…Continue
More than half of Shannon Reeves Events’ fall weddings took place on southern plantations this year, and kicked off with a wedding on a hunting plantation in South Georgia on October 5. For high school sweethearts. Both went to FSU where she was a cheerleader and he played baseball. She is super girly with the most contagious laugh, he is a super funny guy’s guy. She’s a elementary school teacher, he coaches Tallahassee youth baseball. The nicest.…Continue

Is anyone else beyond amazed that tomorrow is already Thanksgiving? It may have something to do with the fact that I am back in the South and most days it doesn't go below 65. Or the fact that I'm not teaching the holidays and making "I am thankful" turkeys for two weeks leading up to it, but it definitely snuck up on me this year. My family is coming down to celebrate here in Charleston and I couldn't be more excited to host my first outdoor Thanksgiving on…Continue

Several years ago, I was given some hand-me down Thanksgiving books for my children. A friend’s older children had out-grown them and she kindly offered them to me. Since that time, I have steadily added to the collection and pull them out each year with the cornucopia, scarecrows, toilet paper and panty hose turkeys (you would have to see them to understand) and a variety of “I Am Thankful For” turkeys featuring my children’s handprint as the feathers.
While all of these…Continue

In many parts of the county, you’ll find folks sipping “pop,” “soda,” or perhaps even “soda pop.” But for folks below the Mason Dixon, “coke” is it.
For Southerners, the brand name of Coca Cola has gone the way of Kleenex and Band-Aid. So if you’re actually hankering for “The Real Thing,” you’ll need to specify.
Case in point: One day, my sister asked her son to bring her a coke. (And by “asked” I mean…
I’m in love with the autumn weather in my new home state of Tennessee. I relish in the leaves as they wave to me from their boughs, showing off their blazing reds, vibrant oranges and luminous yellows. As Michael and I take our daily jaunt into downtown Franklin, leaves shower from the trees above, frolic and play for a whisper of a moment in the breeze and collect…Continue
