It was a Monday. Agh. I'd soared through my to-do list wishing that I'd stop putting unrealistic deadlines on myself--stop creating my own disappointment (as if that was ever going to happen). But Monday had something to say. Something unexpected and somewhat random.
Monday whispered, "Reckless abandon."
I can hardly believe that it's nearly mid-October. We've been busy remodeling a camper, traveling, and trying to find rest whenever possible. We often laugh about how we couldn't imagine life being anymore full--full of joy, chaos, busyness, and obligations--but the truth is, all of that makes life so special and worth while. It's the bustling of engagements, dinners with family, work, and travel that makes this beautiful life wonderful.
Built in 1820 by John Robinson, the Aiken-Rhett House is considered to be one of the best preserved townhouse complexes in the nation. The house was majorly expanded by Governor William Aiken, Jr and his wife in the 1830s and again in the 1850s. The house is a great example of Antebellum life in Charleston with its grand piazzas and large elegant rooms. It stayed in the Aiken family for 142 years before being sold to the Charleston Museum.
The Charleston Museum decided to preserve the condition of the home rather than restore it, which makes this a unique and personal favorite of mine. The walls, floors, and furnishings are tattered and beautiful. It's a must-see for history and architecture lovers!
"Don't tell mama."
Those haunting last words from the finale of HBO's hit show Sharp Objects had fans squirming in their seats. The show, based on the bestselling book by Gillian Flynn who is also the author of Gone Girl, is a psychological mystery that will keep you coming back for more.
Broken yet incredibly strong Camille Preaker sets out to document the murders of two young girls in her hometown, throwing her back to haunting memories of her childhood and the mysterious death of her younger sister.
The story is rich in setting, which has had fans wondering is Wind Gap a real place? The short answer is, yes and no. The town and its bizarre and terrifying residents are fictional, but it was filmed in the small Georgia town of Barnesville.
