It’s Happy Hour Somewhere, Right?

After yesterday’s long, photo-heavy post, we’re going to kick back and take it easy for Friday. Wandering around the tiny, historic town of Kimmswick, MO, with The Hubs, we came upon this old barn that really spoke to me. I can’t imagine why… I want a barn…with a wine garden…full of wine…Is it too early […]

Inside the Compton Hill Water Tower

The fountains aren’t going yet, but that doesn’t make it any less gorgeous. Built in 1909 with proceeds from the 1904 World’s Fair held […]
