For years we’ve wanted to take a leisurely trip down the Natchez Trace Parkway … and make no mistake, with a 50mph speed limit, the 444-mile National Park Service-maintained road requires a leisurely mindset. So if you have time and a desire to escape the hustle-bustle of travel for a while, this is truly a […]
Nashville is one of those places where there are so many things to do, it gets hard to decide where to get started. We know. We’ve experienced it, also. Here’s a suggested itinerary based on our most recent trip to Smashville. It’s full of food, music and history – pretty much Nashville in a nutshell. […]
We’ve purchased Desert Creek Honey since 2008 to help with Kelly’s allergies. Plus local natural honey is just yum for cooking. I’ve written many times about how much we love to tour factories – if there’s a chance to see how something is made, we are THERE. I’m sure part of my fascination with watch-it-made […]

I only had two things I really wanted to do during our weekend in Austin – ok three, if you count spending relaxed time with my spouse. First, I wanted to go to Stubb’s for a gospel brunch (more on that tomorrow). Second, I wanted to see the bats fly. For those who don’t know, […]
Bacon wasn’t the only thing we ate while in Austin (though it was enough to fill us up for two meals that day). We also stopped in at Maiko Sushi Lounge on 6th Street: They had a great happy hour menu (apparently, any time after 5 p.m. is happy hour – a fact which made […]
