    We’ve been back from our Kentucky trip for a few weeks now, but I’m just now getting around to posting these photos. It’s my cleaning lady’s fault, or my EX-cleaning-lady, I should say. I could launch into a fuming diatribe about that, but suffice it to say my pet tornado and I are currently cleaning lady-less. Therefore, my to-do list has gotten a lot longer. (If anyone has a recommendation for a reliable housekeeper, the Duffys are hiring.)

    Anyway, here’s Eleanora in Kentucky with her cousin Cooper. :)

    In my family we are big fans of South Carolina, especially the Charleston area.

    The salty beach air, rich history, and friendly locals are all big draws, of course, but what really keeps me coming back to Lowcountry is the cuisine. How can one resist a place where there are pralines on every corner, and where all the restaurant menus offer up fried green tomatoes, hush puppies, and some of the freshest seafood you’ve ever had?

    Hey there! The Lexingtonienne is back from a visit to the homeland. It was my first trip away from Eleanora (long overdue, probably, but that’s just the way it worked out). And while E and her daddy got lots of father-daughter bonding time over a long weekend at home in LA, I got to enjoy a rainy Lexington weekend with these precious people:

    We are BACK from our fabulous Isle of Palms vacation! We had a wonderful time with four generations of my family. The trip was a Christmas gift from Super Uncle, and all of us — Mimi, Papaw, Mama (aka Shae-Shae), Super Uncle Josh, Seester Haley with TWO buns in the oven, Brother-in-Law Dan, Cooper, Little Brother Ross (aka Uncle Boss), Cousin Kate, her boyfriend Patrick, Hubba Bubba, Eleanora, and I — loved every moment we shared together. We are so lucky to have such love in our family.

    Unfortunately I spent so much time chasing a certain someone around that I was not the best photographer. In fact, I didn’t get a single photo of the whole group (which I will regret forever), and I didn’t even get every family member! So you’ll just have to trust me that we were all there. Here are a handful of my favorite snapshots, in no particular order.
