Where in the World...

Click now for JiffNotes

...have I been?? You know, I was wondering why I haven't been blogging, then I started writing this summary and realized how busy my weekends have been, and I remembered why! Of course, that's no excuse for this month, except that maybe I have needed a few weekends of doing nothing to recover. When I looked at all the pictures I'd taken in May, June and July, I felt a little faint, so I told myself I'd do the "pick just one picture" thing again. Maybe if there's some interest, I'll share some more. ;)

So here's what I've been up to...


  • Took Michael's parents on a Mother's Day tour of gardens, followed by Comedy of Errors at the Shakespeare Tavern
  • Had a nice Mother's Day lunch with my family
  • Took my niece to see the Atlanta Ballet and the Gardens


  • Went to Savannah and Amelia Island for our anniversary
  • Breakfast on our verandah!
  • Took Michael's parents to the brand new Delta Flight Museum for Father's Day, followed by my first ever golfing attempt (emphasis on "attempt")
  • You can't make these people stop for a picture...
  • Celebrated Father's Day with my family
  • Spent a whirlwind three days at a family wedding event...seeing relatives from all over the country, visiting the World of Coke, the Aquarium, attending a fiesta...and fortunately I was spared the golfing!


  • Hosted my family for Independence Day, including hot dogs, fireworks and plenty of food!
  • Yummy salad my sister made...and so festive. ;)

I'll try to be a little better about posting!

Time with family is the theme this summer!!

Sounds like you have been a real busy bee. It looks like you have been having fun though xx

Can't believe you were as close as Amelia and didn't pop down and visit - boo!!!!! Glad you had fun for your anniversary trip - nothing like Savannah ( I go there often on business) and the Golden Isles for a gentle respite.
hope you've had time for some happy stitches. Enjoy your weekend Mel

Just noticed your last name is Lott... I am also a Lott, by marriage! If you have any relatives in Texas, we may be kinda sorta distantly related!

A busy and happy three months! No wonder you've not had time to blog much as of late!

I always enjoy your photos! Lovely mountain laurel, we have one of those we planted in our yard. Love the frog!! Hope you had a nice anniversary.

Busy, busy, busy. I must say, your family know how to co-ordinate their clothing :-) Very smart!
