- Kentucky’s Bourbon Country guide written by an editor/fellow ADPi three doors down from my cube. As a new 21-year-old, I could stand to learn a thing or two.
- Best hotel lobbies in D.C. I was actually in Annette’s office yesterday and she mentioned that The Williard’s claim to fame is coining the phrase “lobby.” Learn something new every day...
- Designer of Hotel San Jose Liz Lambert spills creative décor tips. “I think of the Rolling Stones in the early 1970s. It’s beautiful decadence,” she says.
- Maybe I’m just fresh off the shrimp-boat from visiting my friend on Plash Island (victory picture with a catfish to prove it), but Wanda McKinney’s story about the Alabama Gulf Coast nudges nostalgic pride for Stallings summers in the South.
- A list of walks through D.C. compiled with help from yours truly, le intern.
- In Homes, two antique chandeliers hang from a swoon-worthy pristine white kitchen’s celing. This page shall be torn out and preserved from when I’m out of college.
- A list of 12 divine salvage ideas for your home—cue old barn matierials, antique lanterns, and the like.
- Stunning photography from a Roswell, Ga. home where weathered meets sleek.
- Six New Ways With Corn Bread? The baby chef within me delights. And then I found a Spiked Arnold Palmer recipe. I’m anxious to try as I’m always the girl at the restaurant: “Can I have half lemonade, half sweet tea, please?”
- A guide on how to start a running career on the right foot. (Sorry. Had to.)

Yet again the low country seeps in and steals my heart. Latest culprit? Low Country Luxe, an eco-friendly, gorgeous line of candles crafted by Southern hands. Making my LCL crush even stronger, my friend Amy at MyScoop told me that not only do they smell divine, but leave no grimy soot around the pristine glass edges. Cleaner burning is a result of the soy-based product.

William Hatch made his mark and opened Hatch Show Print in Nashville in 1879. The first posters off the pristine new press: Announcing that the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, Harriet's brother, was coming to town.

The latest from Southern Living's Tales from the Road blog:
Maybe it's the Spanish moss dripping eerily from live oaks in the moonlight, the hushed secrets multiple cultures, or the imaginations of a thousand storytellers--the South is a born-and-bred backdrop for intrigue. The region is fertile ground for folklore and secret societies (that old Greek fraternity/sorority handshake counts for something), and mystery is bound to entail. Similarly, we're home of the famed phrase: "Hey y'all, watch this!" A Southerner will try anything once.
