The Many Faces of Fall: Tablescapes

Well, we are officially into the Christmas season, but I wanted to go back and document some of my fall decor from this year.  I think I broke a record with the number of tablescapes or centerpieces that I did. I just couldn't help myself!  I blame some of it on Instagram because there is just so much inspiration out there!  I was in love with the traditional colors of fall, but also wanted to do something fresh and new.  So.....I did them all!


Well, now it's time to move on to all things merry and bright!  I'll be participating in my first blog hop later this week.  Be sure to check back for ideas on how to dress up your home for the holidays.


A Mountain Vacation: Dillard, GA

The second part of our vacation (and our longest stay), was a trip to the beautiful North Georgia/North Carolina mountains.  I think the beach is a beautiful place and I love to visit in the summer, but I'm a mountain girl at heart!  There's no place I'd rather be!  Whether we are hiking the AT or vacationing, it's pure heaven to me 💓

Tallulah Gorge: a hike for the adventurous

The Mister and I always make it a priority to do some day hiking whenever we can....especially when we're in the mountains.  We had both visited Tallulah Gorge when we were young, but had never hiked down to the bottom of the gorge floor.  So while we were vacationing in the North Georgia mountains this summer, we decided we were going to cross this off our bucket list.


A Halloween Table Scape for Formal Dining

If you're like me and no longer have small children for trick-or-treating and other typical Halloween festivities, that doesn't mean you can't still have a little fun and enjoy some time with family and friends on this festive night. One fun idea is to invite some close friends over for an elegant meal and enjoy a little candle light entertaining.


Charleston, SC: a beautiful place to vacation


Well, now that we are officially into the fall season, I better go ahead and share this post about our trip to Charleston, SC this summer.  This was our first time visiting this historic city.  Because it was just the first leg of our summer vacation, we were only in town for a couple of nights and there's lots we didn't have time to see. But here's a look at what we did and where we stayed.


Eclectic Fall Decor: Boho, Farmhouse, Cottage Style

Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year!  I love everything that it represents: pumpkins, hay rides, football, festivals, and good food!  And while I also love all the beautiful traditional colors of fall, this year, I decided to go with a more neutral tone in my home decor.


AT Section Hike: Woody - Hog Pen Gap


I'm finally getting around to posting our last section hike on the AT.  This trip was a little different because it was just the Mister and me.  But I have to say, we enjoyed it so much!
