Bridal Expo

Hello! Today makes 180 days until the big day! And I finally went to a bridal expo! It was fun but also a little overwhelming. It’s so amazing to see local businesses come out to share what they have to offer. They had a live painter (which I really want at our wedding), a violinist,…

Sunday’s at Swank Co.

Farmhaus fail?

Farhmhaus Burgers has two locations in Augusta, Georgia.  They boast that they use local products (which I am on board with) and they do use organic products as well.
