cheers to old fashioned commerce and karma!

i’d hoped to get this up for wine Wednesday, but well, wine Wednesday got in the way. anyhoo . . . in the past couple weeks, i got an email asking if i would be willing to sell one of my domains. it was one that had a brief (though private) life as my blog…

Friday favorites (with a $25 off chloe + isabel raffle)

happy Friday, everyone! i’m so excited to be heading up to Richmond for the weekend to visit friends and family. it’s gonna be a whirlwind, but it always is . . . and it’s always a really good time, too. hope y’all have some fun to look forward to, as well! enjoy, and here’s the round…

munch out on your lunch out: White Oak Kitchen & Cocktails

oh, yes, y’all. late lunch this afternoon, due to random west coast calls. work is slow at the moment and i just couldn’t bear to go grab something and eat at my desk. late is actually the perfect time to go to a lot of restaurants and get awesome service and an awesome experience. White…

Colmar: fin de la route

our drive through wine country ended in Colmar, just 45 miles south of where we’d started our day on the Route des Vins. we all were a little sad that this was the last stop on our journey before heading back toward Paris the next day, and a final night at an airport hotel and…

Route des Vins: wine Wednesday special edition!

i mean, as if gas station champagne weren’t enough. (please pause while i laugh my ass off.) the true story about our drive from Strasbourg to Colmar is that there wasn’t actually that much wine involved. we had Miss Girl with us of course, so stopping off at every (or any) degustation wasn’t really in…

weekend scenes

woo-hoo! we survived, y’all. this was the single busiest weekend we’ve endured enjoyed since i don’t know when! i’m currently relishing a Sunday night moment of calm before it all starts again. before we finally leave for France on Friday night, Spy and i will see our beloved Hartsfield-Jackson just about more than we will…

munch out on your lunch out: Bellwoods Social House

this is a quick one. but so well worth a mention! i was out running errands on the Westside earlier this week. having dropped off all the dry cleaning, i looked around and wondered what i should do until my 2:00 meeting. Optimist? raw bar & martinis seemed extravagant by myself. i wasn’t exactly in the mood…

Friday favorites: guilty pleasures

i have to write a separate, tragic post about how we are like 90% through the school year and this schedule has still not gotten comfortable for me — or pretty much anyone else in the house. these early mornings are ridiculous, y’all. it’s felt like another rough week of rushing around, always being late…

wine Wednesday: patio weather!

not tryin’ to brag, y’all. but . . . according to one source i just saw, Atlanta hit 77° today. yep. that’s right. this time last week, we were tracking school closings and bracing for another snowpocalypse. welcome to winter weather in the South. i even decided i could pull out white jeans today —…

wine Wednesday: we all scream for wine ice cream!

just wow. anybody who’s ever had a gruesome, wallow-inducing break-up, something rooftop-shoutingly phenomenal to celebrate or just an everyday case of feeling utterly decadent will totally be able to relate to the sheer awesomeness of this find: Mercer’s Wine Ice Cream. in the ultimate 2-great-tastes-that-taste-great-together combo, the most clichéd and delicious heartbreak/celebration/indulgence go-to foods confirm what i’ve always known:…
