vintage bike with flowers
I want to get back to sharing my wanderings with you. I love going places on my own two feet, walking in different neighborhoods or through the park. My hope is that sharing what I see here will motivate me to take more walks, to be mindful of my surroundings, and might just encourage you all to get out, walk, and see what you can see.

This weekend K and I took a trip to his hometown, Maysville, Kentucky. It's on the Ohio River just like Louisville, but it's 2 1/2 hours away by car, making it seem like quite a getaway. We visited K's parents, and K spent the weekend making a piece of furniture (to be revealed soon) with his dad. My mother-in-law Phyllis and I headed to an art fair in Augusta, a small town nearby, which just so happens to be where Rosemary Clooney lived and also George Clooney's hometown. *swoon*
Augusta is a beautiful town, but the residents had the downtown even more gussied up than usual to celebrate the Art in the Garden fair. Flags were flying and potted flowers were abundant. Here are some of the things we saw:
the beehive tavern
(word is that it's pretty to look at but not so great for eating)
the jenny ann
perfect summer getaway house. log cabin-y, porch swing, ferns, and town bikes.
the rosemary clooney house, now a museum. the clooney family (sans george) was there.
gift and gab, an adorable shop.
