Georgia’s Little Grand Canyon

Everyone knows of the giant hole in the middle of north Arizona: the Grand Canyon. Few people know of the Little Grand Canyon located in Georgia! Last month, Boy Friend and I took a drive south of Columbus to Providence Canyon and explored for the day. Providence Canyon was created due to poor agricultural practices Georgia. […]

Civil War Re-Enactments

In the South we have this wonderful tendency to reproduce battles from the Civil War. We always show them as the event actually took place, but we strive to beat those Yankees each time. Last month, my sister and I ventured into the Old South. She and I traveled to Clinton, GA to explore life […]

Top Post of 2015

Believe it or not, the top post of 2015 is The Time I Went to a Psychic. I literally laughed out loud when I saw that! That was such an arbitrary day when Payton and I decided to pop in to see Sylvia. Since she and I visited the psychic in March, I figured I should […]

Bugs and an Irish Girl

This is a column I wrote earlier this year for the Times-Georgian. Aiobhin (oh-veen) spent four days in the south. We drove around Carrollton, went to Jekyll Island, drove across the Florida state line, and went to my grandparent’s farm in Alabama. I did my very best to give her a complete southern visit to […]

Sleet vs Hail

One of the most difficult things to get over in Ireland was the weather. Everyone was always talking about it. What they called hail though is most certainly NOT the hail that I grew up with.  Hail where I come from is golf ball sized. Not sleet… Here’s a video that I took of the […]

Little White House

Yesterday my dad and I took a Daddy-Daughter Day Out and went adventuring here in Georgia. One of the things we went to see, was the Little White House. It’s probably exactly what you’re thinking. The “little” White House? Yeah! Built by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1932, the Little White House served as a retreat […]

The Feeling of “Did I?”

Sometimes, I can’t believe that I lived in Ireland for a year. It’s very difficult to be here in America living everyday life, going from place to place, drinking diet cokes, hanging out with friends and family, and comprehend that I missed a year here at home. This place is the same as it has […]

From Kroger to Tesco and back

Having returned to America and re-entered Carrollton society caused some of the habits I used to have to change. Grocery shopping is one of those experiences. Prior to living in Ireland, I shopped at Kroger and threw all kinds of food items into the buggy. Three cereal boxes, frozen chicken, spices and sauces, fruits and […]
