It’s crazy how it can take half a lifetime sometimes for someone to get a clear understanding of who they are. I’ve often thought of myself to be of a rebellious nature. A reckless of sorts. In reality though, I actually love order. I love for things to be congruent. I think if you boil it down, for me, it’s an appreciation and a … Read More Morrison, The Connection and One Big Dream
Ha ~ This one totally cracked me up. You know how in my last post, I talked about the elusive masterpieces tucked away on gracious Atlantan Lots. Architectural gems that are hidden all around town. Beautifully sculpted dream homes with magnificent detailing designed by abundantly talented artisans. Well, I’ve been intrigued with this one from the road for some time now. You’d think that … Read More What a Trip

All the basic junk that you hear over and over. Kind of a steady … Read More Charge On!

Whether restoring an older home back to it’s original beauty or bringing a new one up out of the ground to stand on its own, … Read More More Than Words Can Express
