Link to 10 things about My (Atlanta) Weekend

I love Atlanta.  I really do. 10 things about my (Atlanta) weekend: I love all the beautiful houses with pretty front yard flowers and plants, fun windows and doors and front porches made for lounging.  I especially love the Virginia Highland neighborhood of Atlanta.  Not just because some of my friends live there but that helps.

We had a bridal dress appointment at 3:45 p.m. on Saturday.  This...

Link to 10 Things you may not know about Kris Kristofferson

Recently my husband and I saw Kris Kristofferson on Austin City Limits and it reminded me of how much I love that guy.  Not only is he an amazing songwriter, he is an all around bad ass.  "Sunday Morning Coming Down" is one of my top 5 favorite songs.  10 Things you may not know about Kris Kristofferson: 1.  Kris has been in Sports Illustrated.  In college (the fifties), he was quite the Rugby, Boxing and Track and Field star, which landed him a spot in Sports Illustrated "Faces in the Crowd." 2.  Kris was a Rhodes Scholar. 3.  Kris...
