Hi, I'm Elizabeth and I invite you to grab a glass of sweet tea and join me as I (along with my husband, John) renovate our love nest. We're both born and raised in the south and love to share with you some of our favorite recipes, stories and our life. We hope you'll come back often!
We are so fortunate to have such creative talents in our family. Over Memorial Day weekend John and I (and Maggie) headed up to the High Country of Boone, NC for a little fun. We were invited, along with my sister, Annie and her hubby Bryan, to my cousins house for "Cousin Weekend". Along with the 6 humans, we had 4 of the four legged, tail wagging kind too.
My very talented cousin, Allyson and her hubby Benny, co-own the blog Living Green Saving Green. If you haven't heard of them, you MUST check them out. Allyson is one of those amazing people who can stretch a dollar until it's
t h i s t h i n and still have money to spare! She can have 3 different meals planned and cooking at the same time. The same time people! I have a hard time getting one meal on the table each day! Do you know anyone who actually MAKES their hamburger and hot dog buns? Allyson does. She's incredible. You can learn all her tricks and how to make the Earth a little greener on their blog.
Here are Benny, Allyson and their four-legged kiddo, Lavender
So what did we do between making coffee cake, vegetable stock and eating incredible food? We played of course!
We traveled up to Valle Crucis to the park and played and picnic-ed (is that a word? oh well, it is now) in the sun.
This park is amazing. Lots of grass, a pond, playsets for the kiddos, and a walking trail and it's all lined by a beautiful mountain river. Gorgeous.
Enjoy the pictures!
