Good Morning, Darlings!

This has been quite the week. Starting with a fab dinner with Mr. Kerry Howard on Sunday night, followed by rising at 4 a.m. the next morning to appear on CBS Better Mornings Atlanta, the podcast that afternoon and finishing up with speaking at the Crave event on Tuesday. It has been a true whirlwind!

I am just now getting some rest, but wanted to share all the fun with you.

Monday morning found our group (the ever-adorable Laura Scholz of Scholz Communication – our camp counselor for these two days and her gorgeous assistant, Brittany, the amazingly glamorous Meridith Ford Goldman, Former Atlanta Journal-Constitution dining critic and food writer and now editorial director of the Atlanta-based marketing and public relations firm, The Reynolds Group, and my sweet friend Christy Annis, CEO of Peas for Prosperity), bleary eyed and in need of coffee at 4:45 a.m. at the CBS studios to talk about “When Life Hands You Lemons, Start A Lemonade Stand” with Tracye Hutchins. We were met by Amanda Harley, segment producer, who made us all feel very at home. And we gabbed. There’s a lot of hanging around when you appear on tv.

Christy, Brittany and I wait for Laura and Meridith

Soup, Peas & Peace With Christy

Good Morning, Darlings!

I trust that everyone had a marvelous Memorial Day weekend, yes?

My weekend kicked off with a Friday lunch date with my sweet friend, Christy Annis, the mastermind behind Peas for Prosperity, an organization aimed at helping the disadvantaged.  Christy just glows with love for what she is accomplishing and it overflows into every aspect of her life.  I am humbled and delighted to call her a friend.

But first, lunch.  We chose Noon for their central location and healthy fare.

Good Morning, Darlings!

Today’s fun find comes from sweet Christy at Peas For Prosperity. A great organization that sells not only black eyed peas to eat, but also jewelry made from these little gems that are thought to bring good luck to all us southerners on New Year’s Day.

And the packaging is cute, too!

Too Adorable!
