What most inspires your art:
I’m inspired by so many things but mostly the energy felt when being by the water, and all things that remind me of that. I’m also very inspired by color itself.

Favorite project you’re currently working on:
I’m working on a new project that I don’t want to give too many details about just yet but is sure to be a favorite. All I’m going to say is that it involves giving back to my dear old friend the Chattahoochee River and I’m very excited to see where it goes.

Now would ya look at that:
Meet Maggie Mathews, an amazing Atlanta-based artist. I had the privilege of photographing her and her studio for this great piece on The Love List that you should definitely go read!

    The booming metropolis of Jasper, Georgia

    Favorite thing about our first visit to Eureka Springs, Arkansas:
    Above all else, Caroline’s cousin’s wedding! It was awesome to see the famous Thorncrown Chapel – it’s so beautiful and impressive. The town itself is an odd one with it’s haunted hotels and quirky shops. As for the few places we visited, The Ozark Mountain Taproom was our favorite (go figure). It had a good selection of Arkansas beers and just about every one we tried was delicious!

    On Caroline…

    On Mark…

    We’ve been Hudson Sutler fans since the minute we discovered them. And as you’ve seen here before, we’ve also been Huckberry fans since the minute we discovered them.

    I recently chatted with Grant Hewitt, the man beehind Hudson Sutler, and we thought it would be fun to collaborate with a little travel series this summer on Back Down South. Mark and I use their bags on the regular, and I’m traveling quite a bit this summer around the South and beyond. I wanted to photograph their Weekender duffels taking trips with me. This idea grew into one of my favorite oppurtunites I’ve had to date: curating a shop on Huckberry.

    Over the next few months, I’ll be adding products to the shop (stay tuned on InstagramFBTwitter), as well as photographing some of my favorite ones that go on the trips with me. The shop is filled with items that I think are perfect for summer travels and adventures, so click the image below to check it out and do some shopping!

    Special thanks to Hudson Sutler and Huckberry for providing some products for us to use on our travels.

  • ATL to NOLA to TX

    A few weeks ago my best friend Tig said “goodbye” to Atlanta and packed her bags for Texas. Though I hate to see her leave Georgia, I can’t be upset about someone moving back to the Homeland. I jumped at the oppurtunity to road trip with her to Houston and as we planned the drive she casually mentioned that she’d never been to New Orleans before. In my opinion, a night is all you need, so we made a stop. Here are some highlights from our trip.

    IMG_2155 We went straight from the highway to Erin Rose Bar for beers and – well – killer po’ boys!

    IMG_2161IMG_2159IMG_2165IMG_2331IMG_2178IMG_2184IMG_2185IMG_2232The Carousel Bar in Hotel Monteleone was a must for me. Sure, touristy, but it’s an institution. I had to have a Vieux Carré in the bar where it was created. For me, it was a bit like checking off “Champagne at The Plaza.”

    IMG_2238IMG_2241 We picked Kingfish for dinner and were so happy we did (thanks to Patrick King for recommending it via Twitter). We had an epic 4 hour meal and savoured every bite and sip. Add this place to your NOLA list.

    IMG_2243IMG_2338 Onward to Texas! While on the road (and before refueling our bellies at The Chimes in Baton Rouge), one of us mentioned how we wished we’d have time that weekend to go to an Astros game. A few minutes later, Tig’s brother texted her “‘game tonight, roof open, 70 degrees.” Could we get there in time? We sure could. What better way to welcome Tig back to Houston than driving straight to the ballpark for some ‘Stros, overpriced beers and nachos in the Crawford Boxes.

    IMG_2340IMG_2346IMG_2349 Texas forever.

    Special thanks to Sam Hunt for providing our soundtrack for 90% of the drive.
    Thanks to the Undisclosed Podcast for filling the other 10%.

    Favorite weekend getaway spot in the South:
    Our family cabin at Lake Martin, Alabama. It’s my husband’s favorite place in the world and so I guess he rubbed off on me because when I think about the place where I feel the most relaxed and yet the most at home, it’s there. No agenda, great food and drinks and few activities besides moving from the dock to the boat to the dinner table…just peaceful, yummy and beautiful…
     
    Tell everyone about Grammarcy (her full-service design print paperie):
    Grammarcy is my first child. Born out of a love of weddings, it became a way for me to discover a style of my own and literally put it on paper. I work out of a home studio where I get to design and print everything from save the dates, birth announcements, wedding or shower invitations to cocktail napkins and koozies. I get to work with brides, mothers, industry professionals and lots in between. It daily allows me to be creative, be inspired and see new depths of God’s faithfulness to me all while allowing me to be at home with my greatest treasures (daughters Alice, Bess and Suzanna…and husband Baker too ;)
