I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas where Coke really means Dr. Pepper and TexMex is it’s own food group! I clearly remember the first time I went out to eat when I was in Vermont for college. I asked for a sweet tea and the waitress gave me a blank stare. Finding […]

In the Hubbard House Friday night is Pizza night! Seriously almost every Friday we are most likely eating pizza of some sort.

Originally, Chatham was born as a 1,280-acre plantation which included an orchard, mill, and race track for raising and racing horses. Surrounding the stunning, main house were dozens of supporting structures. Slave quarters. A […]

I’ve been struggling to develop interesting blog content for the winter months. When it’s below freezing no one really wants to take outdoor, natural light portraits. I can’t really blame them!
