Interestingly enough, they kept a tally of the number of trick-or-treaters that came to the front door each Halloween since 1984. We kept up the tradition of counting as accurately as we can with the help of all our Halloween guests each year.… Read More »

I have food allergies and it stinks. I aged into these allergies so thankfully never had to pilfer through baskets on Halloween for gluten free candy as a child. However, I can certainly sympathize with kiddos who have food allergies. Therefore, at my house we offer non-edible treats PLUS the regular amazing candy treats! … Read More »

Am I going to have to say goodbye to my favorite jeans for a while?… Read More »

Vanderlyn Elementary lost one of the most beautiful trees I’ve ever seen on Tuesday night. Lightning basically tore it in half. My husband often remarked as we walked under it: “This is the prettiest tree in Dunwoody”. He called me with grief in his voice on his way to work on Wednesday telling me to check out Vanderlyn’s tree. … Read More »

Reese Witherspoon chose it for her book club last July and I have really liked the few “Reese Picks” that I’ve read! … Read More »
