Dear Partners, Last night, like so many of you, I watched the election returns with family and friends. And like so many of our fellow Americans – both Democrats and Republicans – I am stunned. We cannot know what the precise impact will be on our country and the rest of the world. I am hopeful that we will overcome the vitriol and division of this unprecedented election season. As Americans, we must honor the democratic process. We have a president-elect in Donald Trump, and it is our responsibility as citizens to give him the opportunity to govern well and bring our country together...

From the moment I saw the lovely exterior of this new spot, I knew it was perfection. The mix of southern charm and industrial pieces fits perfectly with the small town of Homewood Alabama. As we walked in to the cafe, we were met with friendly faces and warm greetings. Before I even stepped up to the counter to order my food, a staff member had placed a warm cup of Alabama's own Royal Cup Coffee into my hand. As I sipped, my friend and I decided what food we would order. Everything at Real and Rosemary is whole food options. We had the opportunity to meet Jennifer Mims, one of the owners...

We all have Christmas wish lists. Items we dream about having as part of our kitchen arsenal. Today we wanted to share with you a few that are on the top of our list! Stainless Carving Set Touch of Modern says, "Jean Dubost’s family, inspired by the traditional peasant tool, has been crafting the artisan blades since 1920. Surrounded by legend and myth, the Laguiole knife still carries the mark of its ancestors. A bee that is found engraved on all Laguiole products was originally part of Napoleon Bonaparte’s imperial seal. The blade, made of high-grade stainless steel, is stamped, then ground...

This month I have decided to participate in the See Jane Write event, Blog Like Crazy! It has been one hell of an adventure and I have enjoyed it so much. I am also participating in an event with The Birmingham Girls Club . This is an Instagram challenge. Each day we post a photo based on the inspiration chosen for that particular day. Both of these challenges have been fun learning experiences. I have stretched myself beyond my normal bounderies. I even posted a photo of my own hands for the BGC Instagram challenge (which I never do, due to all of my old lady wrinkles). I have also shared...

Last year was my first time to experience the amazing Christmas event Market Noel . I remember how excited I was to meet local creators from all over the Southeast. I got my camera, notebook, cute holiday outfit and headed out to enjoy some Christmas cheer. As I walked in the front door, I was immediately giddy at the sight of greenery strung all along the massive stairway. The Birmingham Junior League volunteers greeted me with a smile and I made my way up the stairs. As I climbed closer and closer to the top, my senses were flooded with cinnamon, cardamom, apple spice, and every other...
