Tweet I’d only been to Milledgeville, Georgia once before, but I knew it was known for three things: Georgia College and State University, the penitentiary and the abandoned mental institution known as Central State Hospital. And while I have an affinity for all things abandoned, this place was indescribably eerie, even in daylight hours. I [...]

Tweet In case you have had trouble tracking where I was, I started out in St. Simon’s Island, Georgia, followed quickly by a visit with my sister Rachel in Athens before starting the Antebellum Trail and the Ultimate Florida Road Trip. During my two nights in the Classic City I did a whole lot of [...]
Tweet Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey’s uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, [...]

Years ago I heard about Andi of My Beautiful Adventures‘ experiences scuba diving at the Georgia Aquarium right here in my landlocked home town and immediately added it to my Life List. These days I prefer experiences [...]
Tweet via AW Photography As we prepare for the London Olympics, I can’t help but remember the 1996 Atlanta Centennial Olympic Games that shaped my hometown in so many ways. Prior to Atlanta’s selection as host city, it was known more for rap music and events like Freaknik than international sporting events. The local government [...]
Tweet I’ve been visiting the quirky Atlanta neighborhood of Little Five Points since I got my driver’s license at sixteen. The Venice Beach-like suburb was like no place this suburban girl had ever seen. Between the pierced and tattooed punks and the dreadlocked homeless people, Little Five is not short on “local color.” Recently the backdrop [...]
Tweet A few weeks ago, Sammi and I drove over to Decatur, a hip neighborhood in Atlanta, for me to research an article and to keep us busy. Sammi has been working at a 4 H Center an hour south of town and hasn’t gotten as many hours as she wants, so she spends a [...]
