To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

ATLANTA HOME TOUR AND PIPER LOVE
Welcome to Atlanta!
I thought it would be fun to take a tour of Miss M's beautiful
home in Atlanta!
A front door welcome!
I am so in love with her new planters!
She initially decided on gardenias for the pots!
But, a beautiful fall weekend beckoned her to the nursery
and plans were changed to Blush Pink Nandina's and
several other seasonal plants including
Pansies, Creeping Jenny, Weeping Lorapetelum and Foamy Bells Hucherella!
I love Mother's secretary in the foyer
all dressed up for fall.
One of my favorite things to do is
just sit out on the deck, watch the golfers roll by
and soak up the autumn sunshine!
Saturday afternoons are reserved for
the little Milton Steelers!
Now, these kiddos are a hoot!
Halloween was in full swing!
Luke loves his Halloween village!
These little houses are such collectibles now,
from Mother's to mine to his.....magical!
While the Boy Scout camping expedition was going on,
Miss Piper went to doggie camp!
She LOVES it!
I think M was relieved since this was her second visit
and she was loved on by all the caregivers and the owner!
She is a social girl!
However, I do believe it looks like she was
glad to be home-sweet-home!
Gettin' some "Piper love!"
It certainly didn't take long to fall in love......
