I like a good mix… my style is an eclectic hodgepodge; I often enjoy a stiff and perfectly mixed cocktail; and when it comes to home decor I like a mix of  both vintage and new pieces.  Antiquing is one of my favorite weekend activities. A Saturday spent at an antique show is ideal… strolling through decades of history and rows of treasures. Thanks to esteemed editor and Southern C Summit connection Amy Flurry, I recently discovered a unique website that brings the antique mall to your laptop. Continue reading “Cocktail Hour” »

Tusk Chicago

I’ve been spending a lot of time in the Windy City lately for work and play… I try and pick a neighborhood to explore each trip and this past visit took me to Logan Square.

Suds and Cheese

August 31, 2014

My new social media gig is pretty sweet…. I now work with the Upland Brewing Company here in Bloomington, Indiana. It’s been a whirlwind of a summer delving into the craft beer biz, attending lots of events to capture moments for social media. The first weekend of August, a few brewers and myself ventured north on an epic Wisconsin adventure including The Great Taste of the Midwest and a visit to the New Glarus Brewery.

Guest Post: Backroads of Georgia

July 17, 2014

Claire Cothren of Blueprints and Backpacks was my co-pilot during my days as an architectural surveyor at UGA Find It. We spent many long hours cruising around Georgia and documenting and photographing buildings, trying to convince people we were not tax accessors, and eating a lot of biscuits. She recently shared this post about some our favorite findings and lessons learned on the Georgia backroads. Enjoy!
