Sharing is Caring {Southern Hospitality}

Have you ever noticed that some of the best gifts are free?

We’re back from our second weekend in a row spent with good friends… and we’ve experienced the most amazing Southern hospitality.

If you follow me on Instagram you saw a few peeks from our weekend fun in South Alabama on the Little Escambia Creek.  And I returned with fresh vegetables, an incredible collection of driftwood, and new recipes to try…

The previous weekend, we celebrated the upcoming wedding of  dear friends’ daughter and enjoyed a spectacular day on the Chatahoochee River (otherwise known as “the ‘Hooch” to us Georgia peeps).  I came home with fresh vegetables, river driftwood (I know, right?), and flint arrowheads and implements used long ago by American Indians…

Oh, and that big hunk of limestone I picked up off the river bank.  🙂

Nothing short of awesome…

Last week, I filled the bed of our retaining wall with these…

Little knock-out rose bushes from my sweet friend Michelle.  She separated out several from her own garden and shared with me for this sunny spot…

These are the gifts that keep giving… from the garden, from the kitchen, from nature, from the heart.

How wonderful is that?

What’s YOUR favorite gift you ever received?

  1. Wow..that is a very tough question…I guess it would have to be the gifts of wisdom from my mom…those gifts are priceless…and the gifts of love you receive from your family…and the gift of watching your child grow up to be the finest of young men and a great father…the gift of the love of a man for over 40 years…those such things are the greatest gifts to me…

    Such wonderful finds Heidi…
