Theres nothing quite like the smell of pluff
mud, salt water and oysters in the morning. We are so blessed and fortunate to have this view and serenity on the lower Leadenwah.
To wake to to the smells of the creek and the sounds of birds chirping, donkeys braying, roosters crowing over morning coffee starts my day out on such a peaceful note.
Life is what hat you make of it. Daily. Either you can make it difficult or make it wonderful. You can choose to dwell on things you can't control or have no control of, or you can move forward. You can wallow in your pain or grief or sadness or anger, or you can let it go. Personally, I've done a lot of "wallowing in grief" but with good reason. Today though is going to be amazing, and it all started with pluff mud, salt water and oysters. Oh, and a wee little spotted fawn in the front yard ❤️❤️❤️
Trip down memory lane and blast from the past. Received an inquiry late last night for a tie. Turns out, she's married to a friend from high school...
Memories of 'Jack & Diane' blaring from the cassette deck of the '76 Triumph Spitfire ragtop blasting through the countryside and a mostly angry little 15yr old girl. Angry that my parents had moved me from paradise (aka Hilton Head Island) to this po-dunk one stoplight town in the middle of BFGeorgia.
As it turns out. It's probably the town that 'saved me'. On a collision course with way too much way to big for your britches fun, Woodbury, GA (aka BFG) was just what I needed.
Looking back, I'm so very thankful, not just for saving me. But for the amazing and lifelong friendships. Thank you Roxanne for making me take a little trip down memory lane today. And thank you for your purchase of a Chukkar bow tie for tour hubby. Can't wait to see the photos!
Then, and a couple years back when I took Hannah & her friend to visit UGA for college visits. Their very favorite part was the trip to Woodbury. Mine was the lifelong friendship and seeing Debbie & TLC (Tommie Lynne Cashion)
I was always meant to be a country girl ❤️❤️❤️
As 2016 draws to a close, my thoughts have drifted to who doesn't love a #happyending? Get your mind out of the gutter, I'm talking about necklaces here!!! My favorite new necklaces besides the #perfectdroptassle are the new #happyendings, aka the Perfect Drop Tassle, with a Happy Ending. What is a happy ending? It's a necklace you can dangle a host of different endings from which should make you happy! You're not tied down to a single tassle, an antler, a cross, a pendant or one of anything. You can literally "dangle" just about anything off the end of your #happyending necklace. They start of course with a great foundation necklace, ie one you can wear with just about any ending that makes you happy, or several happy endings for that matter! What's left will be picked up from @TrailerFash on Monday and put on the website next week.
Until then, everyone have a SAFE & HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! 2017 Bring it... 2016, good riddance...

B & I went hunting last night. Neither of us saw anything. Heard some shots so know they were walking somwhere. When we were walking in the house he hugged me and said how blessed we have been by the deer gods this year. I killed my first ever buck, he was awesome (getting mounted, thanks B). B killed the biggest body weight, oldest deer he's ever killed, in fact he aged out on the teeth chart according to the jaw bone charts (also getting mounted). B also killed two cull bucks (the ones who need to go because they're just not right, or they're all they're going to be and not produce any bigger rack then they have, and the better ones need to be breeding, and I killed a doe as well. We have plenty of meat in the freezer for this coming year, and are enjoying packing some up and giving it to family, as well as a few who need it. Above all, we only hunt responsibly and ethically. B only hunts with his bow, as for me, I hunt with a single shot slug gun. We only take what we need, or what needs to go.
We are truly blessed & thankful to have this life we have. As I look back on 2016, though there were some of the toughest moments I've ever faced, there were some awesome times too. #whatdoesntkillyoumakesyoustronger #blessedlife #thankfullife #deergods #lowcountrywildlifeservices
I got this from my daughter the other day. It really made me think about the girls & women out there who dont have a good relationship with their mothers. It's so very important. Hannah and I have an awesome relationship, in fact, sometimes we say we're the same person. We haven't had an easy life, in fact it's been much harder than most, but throughout we've tackled lifes worst moments and best as well. I'm very, thankful for this amazing girl today, and every day. Funny, as I was writing this, she called me just to chat (of course she was driving, she always calls when she's driving...)
Call your mom, if you still have her and tell her you love her. Then call your daughter(s) and tell her you love her too. #youcanthankmelater #positivelife #girlsrule
Anyone can show up when you're happy. But the ones who stay by your side when your heart falls apart, they are your true friends. I have this man, we are this family. I am thankful and blessed.
