It's About Time

I find myself wishing for a number of things these days, but nothing as much as time. The time to reflect, to read a book. The time to truly do nothing at all. Living without that has become the norm.

Work steals most of my attention, but that’s not shocking. After work, there is another set of obligations: the social obligations and the little life necessities we all have. The little errands that won’t do themselves, the phone calls that need to be made to check in on loved ones many…

An Insider's Guide to Charleston

South Mississippi's Best Kept Secret

It's the birthplace of artist, Walter Anderson.  It's sleepy and quiet and tucked quaintly on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.  It's where I fell in love with my fiancé, and it has some of the most breathtaking views in the south.  It's the town of Ocean Springs, Mississippi.

I have fallen head over heels in love…

Cuisine: Chocolate Shopping in Savannah

While I was down South over Christmas, I stopped in at  Chocolat by Adam Turoni, an artisan chocolate boutique in downtown Savannah. I filled up a box with my selections and believe me, it was hard not to take home one (or…

Let's pig out.

Pork has long been a New Year's Day tradition. The custom is based on the idea that pigs symbolize progress. The animal pushes forward, rooting itself in the ground before moving. Roast suckling pig is served for New Year's in Cuba, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, and Austria—Austrians are also known to decorate the table with miniature pigs made of marzipan. Different pork dishes such as pig's feet are enjoyed in Sweden while Germans feast on roast pork and sausages. Pork is also consumed in…

Cheerwine and Bourbon: The Cocktail of Southerners

Southern Women are a breed all their own.

Alison Glock said it best:

“For better or worse, we are forever entangled in and infused by a miasma of mercy and cruelty, order and chaos, cornpone and cornball, a potent mix that leaves us wise, morbid, good-humored, God-fearing, outspoken and immutable.”

My friends and I are Southern Women and quite proud of it. This means when we get together there are things you should know that are going to happen:

1. We’re going to…

To the Hunt

When I was growing up, each year my parents took me to The Middleburg Fox Hunt in Middleburg, Virginia.  I have some memories of it but would love to go back again and make some new ones.  It is in the middle of October when the weather is perfectly cool and the leaves have begun to change.  The hunting dogs are released and the riders look so perfectly stylish on top of their horses in their riding jackets.…

Trim it, tassel it, pipe it or simply cover it--the pillow today is as much a part of the interior design world as it has ever been. Without having to break the bank, a pillow can infuse that pop of color or slyly add a subtle accent of texture, and take a space from being dull to dynamic. We couldn't be more thrilled to have Fort Worth's, Rebecca Atkinson and Kelley…

Damn! Toups' Meatery Impresses in New Orleans.

You know you're at a uniquely fantastic restaurant when you are requested to take a shot of Irish whiskey using a sawed in half bone out of which you just consumed the marrow. It turns out, the marrow bone works quite well as a whiskey luge and the flavors picked up from the remains of roasted goodness enrich the water of life quite well. Michele took a shot too as we dined at Toups' Meatery, a…
