Do you remember those Choose Your Own Adventure books from when we were kids that allowed you to choose which way the story would go? If you're not familiar with these little books, the concept is simple. At the end of a chapter--usually right at a cliffhanger moment-- it would tell you to skip over to page 69 if you wanted ABC to happen or 96 if you wanted XYZ to be the result.  They promised something like 40 different possible endings to the story, although I never read all the various … [Read more...]

Picture Birmingham Giveaway {For a GREAT Cause}

PictureBirmingham Coupon Code

Back in the late summer I was sitting on my parent’s dock watching as the sun sank down below the horizon, saying silent prayers as I usually do.  I’ve found that lakes are where I do my best praying, and this day was no exception.  What WAS exceptional about this day, though, was the sunset. It was spectacular. I took this picture with my iPhone, believe it or not.  And of course I instagrammed it pretty much immediately after I took it, because I am in a bit of an ongoing sunset … [Read more...]

Dream Vacation Giveaway to Anna Maria Island, Florida

Anna Maria Giveaway.jpg

As a child from Alabama I grew up vacationing in Panama City Beach (aka the Redneck Riviera), where the high-rise condos line the Miracle Strip like Wall Street, completely blocking your view of the water with 18 stories of concrete and metal railings.  In college we started going to Destin and Fort Walton Beach, which still had high rise condos interspersed with cute beach houses and plenty of sugar sand beaches.  These days my family makes the Spring Break drive to the 30-A towns of Seaside, … [Read more...]

Duluth-Trading-Fathers-Day-giveaway_thumb.jpg

T- minus six days until Father’s Day is here, and as usual I have absolutely NO clue what gift to buy my husband. Or my dad. Or my Father-in-law.   Together those three are like the founding members of the Impossible to Buy Gifts For Guys Club. They form a frustrating trifecta of men who can afford to buy themselves whatever they want but don’t really need anything. So, every single year I go through the motions of trying decide what to buy them on Father’s Day and typically wind … [Read more...]
