Making Memories in the Smokies

The other week #3 and me headed to the Great Smoky Mountains in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Really nice area to connect with the family and enjoy great adventures. Reminds me of the Branson, MO area I made memories of long ago and still enjoy visiting every once in a while. We delighted in all the tourist traps, ate delicious food, and checked out the great outdoors as we made family memories so sure to be cherished for many years to come. Our spectacular leased mountain home, nestled serenely on the countryside, was especially wonderful, as we kicked back and entertained numerous Ms. PacMan tournaments with a state of the art, antiquated video machine. And, what do you do to make memories on your family vacations??

On A Quest For Some Interesting Artwork In the SOMA Area

While on my quest for the best latté in the Central Arkansas area, I have come across some very interesting artwork on South Main Street in downtown Little Rock. Or, should I say the SOMA area...which sounds a little like the ever so famous SoHo area of Manhattan, NY well known for its local artists, trendy stores, and tons of historic personality. I like it! Our very own SOMA area is cropping up on South Main and the interesting artwork I wonderfully stumbled onto is from the public (yet privately owned) art display at The Bernice Garden.

Oh, and I'm still on a quest for the best latté in the area, however The Boulevard Bread Company, located next door to The Bernice Garden, makes a pretty darn good one! Check them both out...can't wait till the newness wears off so I can get into the highly acclaimed Root Café which is right down the way...in the SOMA area...as we (in the know) now say...
