Clean Water For All

I am so grateful for all of the blessings in my life. As a mother, one of my goals is to help my children grow into socially responsible adults. It is my personal belief, that those of us who can give back, should.

There are so many worthwhile causes that it is staggering. As a family we are asking that all our gifts for the next 6 months (all of our birthdays) go to our water project. Our campaign is at:

Our trip to Blackberry Farm

I have been so obsessed with getting ready for our move, that I have neglected to post!  I am so sorry, and promise to catch you up on some of the amazing things we have done this Spring!

To begin, we just returned from an AMAZING spring break.  We traveled to the beach with family in South Carolina, then to Blackberry Farm and on to Nashville.

In a previous post, I had mentioned booking the trip to Blackberry and promised pictures with details.  I am feeling a little guilty about the fact that I did not take a single picture of our food!  Not sure what I was thinking there?  Perhaps there were just too many beautiful things to capture.

Here are some of my favorite pictures of Blackberry Farm through our lens.

Our room - the Nest Egg.  It was absolutely a beautiful space.

Heading to dinner at the barn.  The staff, the food and the service at dinner were the best I have ever experienced.
Perfect pansies in a windox box by the garden.

Checking out the seeds at the garden shed.

Playing with the "Truffle Puppies.

The horse stables.

The farm.

So beautiful.

Fresh honey with our tea.

We absolutely loved being together as a family.  We were able to eat amazing meals, roast marshmallows under a star filled sky, play billiards, hike, fish, and just enjoy each others company. Would I go back? Yes, definitely yes.
