Four years ago today I was doing the same thing I always do this time of year—getting ready to bake some pies! Pecan is a must for our family, and I have to bake a personal pumpkin pie for Boomerang Boy. But with only 7 folks around our table this year, maybe I’ll cut down on desserts? Nah. #getinthekitchen&bakemeapie

Went to the King Kong Kroger today. Big mistake. Huuuuge mistake. Came home cranky AF. Please share your biggest holiday grocery shopping gripe. I’ll start: dudes who’ve clearly never been to the store before, camped out in front of dairy case, staring at contents, earbuds in place—for 5 minutes while I internally RAGE. #grocerygripes #supermarketsourpuss #killmenow #bitchplease

Good enough for government work. The punch bowl will have to wait. My BFF @kkpwantiques isn’t impressed with my mad polishing skills, but I’m calling this silver spree a wrap. #silverslut #barware #hoarderissues

Cleaned off the bar. Discovered I have 3 different badly tarnished martini shaker. Reader: nobody in this house drinks martinis. #shakennotstirred #hoarderissues #flunkedmybarexam #squirrelhollow #estatesalefinds

SYNOPSIS: After being stolen from her wealthy German parents and raised in the unforgiving wilderness of eastern Europe, a young woman finds herself alone in 1941 after her kidnapper dies. Her solitary existence is interrupted, however, when she happens upon a group of Jews fleeing the Nazi terror. Stunned to learn what’s happening in the outside world, she vows to teach the group all she can about surviving in the forest—and in turn, they teach her some surprising lessons about opening her heart after years of isolation. But when she is betrayed and escapes into a German-occupied village, her past and present come together in a shocking collision that could change everything.

Just a girl, standing behind a president, with his brand new memoir, A PROMISED LAND. My neighborhood bookstore, @eagleeyebooks in Decatur, still had several copies at lunchtime when I dropped in. #presidentobama #history #buyindiebooks2020 #apromisedland

Went to @target for a cutting board—got waylaid by these lil trees at The Dollar Spot. Came home & plonked them in these mini bait buckets that were a gift from my dear friend Linda. I guess I’ve begun decorating Ebbtide for Christmas now!  Maybe Ivy is looking for an early visit from Santa. #christmasatthebeach #ebbtidetybeeisland #visittybee #vacationtybee
