Serenbe Part 1

And I think to myself, what a wonderful world…

This year I’m on a quest to recreate more.  It seems that duty of life can take all of life if one is not careful. And I’m often not careful to guard my own tank.

As a creative, I am seeing more and more that recreation is one of the timbers in the fire of art. So, we scooped up the kids on Saturday and headed to Serenbe.


Serenbe is a small community in the Chattahoochee Foothills where farm, eco-living meets creative arts. I guess. I’m not sure how to describe it. You have to experience it.

At The Farmhouse and Inn we found an in-ground trampoline where we stopped for a jump before heading to see the animals.


We found some gorgeous hens and roosters.

And then the goats came out of their pens for a visit. Yep, some are just roaming around to the delight of my kids! No pun intended.



Everyone now wants goats.

This old gal showed up to butt in.



We found a couple llamas. This guy/girl, was pretty aloof and kept giving us the side-eye. But…we weren’t put off.

Hey, ya got a little something in your teeth.

As we continued on, we stumbled upon an awesome rock maze. After achieving victory, I had them all pose for their album cover.


We headed off to the next part of Serenbe just a short walk down the dirt road. I’ll share about that next time!

This January day in Georgia was good to us.

Linking with Random-osity, Songography, Black and White Wednesday.


366 Rewind

This week is all about the things spring brings.  We have had sunshine, warm temperatures, a few scattered spring rains, first sunburns of the season, pollen, blooms, and soccer.  I must say that these rising temperatures have boosted my outlook.

Warmer weather rekindles my desire to eat wholesome food.


Gracyn found these in the yard.


My pin cushion flowers are waking up.


So are the clover weeds.


Soccer games began.  The Comets won their first game.  Go number 8!


We think the “Blackhops” (Blackhawks) won.  Go number 9!


The Crusaders did not win, but they played hard.  Look at the boys my girl is up against.  Go number 3!

We are all a little pinker after the games, and next week I will not underestimate the sun.


** Just another reminder that my blog will be down part of the day for installation of my new blog design.  I will make my blog visits before and after the install.  I look forward to seeing everyone’s week!  This URL will change to  If you are a new reader, there are several ways to stay connected.  Come back and see what’s new!**

scavenger hunt sunday

I’m so thankful that I had time to invest this week in the prompts without feeling overly rushed.  In case you missed yesterday’s post, my blog is undergoing a facelift and will be down for part of Monday.  I look forward to visiting blogs around the uploading hours.  Please do come back and see my new design Monday or Tuesday.  Also, my URL will be changing to  I’m not sure if you will need to update subscriptions, but if you are keen, come back and sign up for email updates or subscribe in a reader.

To the prompts!

1. Vintage:

I dined on these plates during special occasions growing up.  The pattern is Meteor and is circa 1960s.  There are very few of them left intact, so the few that are still living are part of my history.

2. Word or Quote

This quote speaks to me.  It is a simple quote on a calendar hanging in my kitchen, but there is a great deal of truth here.  I can get discouraged sometimes with this photography journey.  I want to be farther faster.  It’s hard to work day in and day out sometimes to progress, but I do believe that time will pay off.

3. Nature’s Own

I love the simple beauty of produce.  The kids and I took a 45 minute drive into Midtown Atlanta this week to go to Whole Foods.  These are some type of Honey Orange.  I don’t think I have ever had a juicier, sweeter orange.

4. People

The little blond guy is one of my favorite people.  Saturday was our first soccer games of the season.  This image makes me giggle looking at Jasper’s squishy face.  I captured this pre crash-into-teammate-going-for-the-same-ball.  Jasper was bracing for impact.


5. Photographer’s Choice

I don’t know about y’all, but it is a sneeze fest in the south this week.  The yellow evil is out.  The amounts of pollen in the air and on every surface is insane!  I don’t know if this ant-buggy thing is helping to pollenate purposefully, but he is wearing a good deal of pollen.

Have a great week!
