Little Bits of Luxury: Sunglasses

Little Bits of Luxury

If I tallied up all I spent on sunglasses from Target, street vendors, and clearance sales I could probably buy a few pairs of designer shades. I could never justify spending more than $25 for a pair of sunglasses if they were just going to break or get lost before the summer was through. However, as I got older I learned that caring for items, no matter their pricetag, made…

Dreaming of Bonnaroo…

Music

We decided to not go to Bonnaroo again this year. We’ll be attending other festivals, but Bonnaroo still holds a special place in our hearts because it was the first we ever attended. Also for those who have attended Bonnaroo, you can agree it’s a life-changing experience.

Now I don’t claim to be some sort of expert and hey, you…

personal life

Maybe it’s years of prepping for Bonnaroo, living with a mother who was always prepared for anything, my husband’s eight years in the Navy, or dealing with a few previous blizzards and hurricanes, but Karl and I have a pretty clear plan for events like Sandy.

Forecastle 2012 Recap

Music music festival My Morning Jacket

While I have attended Bonnaroo several times, I had yet to attend a city-based music festival like Forecastle. Unlike Bonnaroo where you camp on the same grounds as the music festival, you have to stay offsite with Forecastle. We chose to stay at The Galt House, which was less than a half mile from the grounds and also had a great price for festival attendees. The Galt House was HUGE!…
