Good Morning Darlings!

I am so excited to share my experience at The Ritz-Carlton in Charlotte with you. Charlotte has never really been on my radar, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Of course, I knew it was a financial hub, but I was wildly delighted to discover this gem of the south.

Hurry up, you will love this!

Sweet Camp Treats in Charlotte

Good Morning Darlings!

Eric and I were just in Charlotte this weekend at The Ritz-Carlton and I cannot wait to share all the fabulousness we experienced. More on that later this week.

If you just can’t wait – here’s a teaser. Charlotte is a gorgeous city and we were enchanted by it. I think you and your love of chocolate should indulge by taking a class at the Cocoa Lab and sending your kids to Cooking Camp while you are at the spa or shopping at the Epicentre across the street.

My sweet friends at Hennessy Transportation (you know, they are the official transportation of Atlanta Movie Tours – what? you haven’t been on our tour yet? What are you waiting for??), have come up with the coolest party idea ever. I cannot wait to grab a group and go.

Join the party inside!!

Good Morning Darlings!

When I think vegan, I think veggies. Cocktails never even enter my mind.

Vegans like cocktails, too!

Good Morning Darlings!

I feel like I haven’t seen you in forever! My days have been spent on the new business (Atlanta Movie Tours), and I have neglected you.

Please forgive me!

Let’s spend some time together….
