A Bon Voyage Farewell Luncheon

It's always hard to say goodbye when we move on to the next adventure, but last week's farewell luncheon that "my" ladies threw for me was particularly bittersweet. I put "my" in quotes, because I read once that I'm not supposed to call them "my" ladies, because that indicates ownership, but I've … [Read more...]

Dinner & Dancing in Downtown Savannah

But, a few weeks ago we celebrated my daughter's fourth birthday in grand style. To give you a little background, this was her first 'party'.  I said to someone … [Read more...]

Black, White and Lime Baby Shower

Hi everyone! I am so happy to be back especially after this past weekend of party planning.  My dear friend Trinity is pregnant with her first baby and I had the honor of throwing her a baby shower.  The weather was hot, sunny and a bit humid but the party really turned out great.  I had a 24 … [Read more...]
