You haven’t been “home” until you take a visit to the Desperate Housewares Vintage Furniture Shop in Old Fourth Ward, Atlanta.
Not to be mistaken with the popular gasoline retailer, but I must note they serve a damn good cup of coffee. It is a must that Quicktrip is included in your road trip excursions. And keeping it real - it’s also the only way I can function as a mom of a growing toddler boy.
I was one of many Americans brave enough to go outside during the midst of the pandemic. Call me crazy and judge me if you must, but I stumbled across a true gem while playing outside – where the Ritz Carlton collides with the Marriott. I knew that my husband would be in for a unique birthday staycation.
It’s no secret that I enjoy traveling with my husband Keith. In fact, we are currently preparing for a day trip for this weekend as I am writing this. Traveling with my little family has become my latest obsession. And while I do love to slip out of the States from time to time on a relaxing cruise, there is nothing I enjoy more than a road trip with just me and my babe. It’s a euphoric experience each and every time. When my aunt mentioned we would be traveling as a family to Amelia Island I was ecstatic.
I think love is being with someone who has always seen the best in you. The vulnerability of knowing growing with your partner in life is powerful. It’s a safe place and it feels refreshing. That’s exactly how it feels when I visit Columbus, Georgia. More than anything, it gives me this familiarity of being at home on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. It’s a thriving city and they sure live by Southern Hospitality. I first fell in love with this amazing place back in 2016 when traveling for work.
