A Merry Mix Up

By Karen Gordon It’s that time of year when children are making their list and checking it – or make that changing it – twice! Julia Reynolds was three-years-old last Christmas and her little wish list consisted of mostly princess costumes for playing dress-up. If you asked her on the fly what she wanted for Christmas, the two things you would definitely hear: a green Elsa dress and green Elsa shoes. For two solid months, the child told anyone who asked and everyone who would listen that she was getting a green Elsa dress for Christmas. Santa Claus and at...

A Love Letter to the City of Augusta

By Karen Gordon “You ask me why I love her? Well, give me time and I’ll explain.” Those words from John Wayne always resonate with me because Augusta is many things to many people. Augusta is the Garden City, golf central, the birthplace of soul and the Silicon Valley of the south. For me, this is where I grew up and where I choose to call home. Augusta is home to my family and to an ever-expanding creative class and collaborative community and downtown is the epicenter of it all. Yes, downtown- the diamond in the rough. The place where...

Tibi

By Paige Tucker Tibi gave us plenty of heart attacks over the years, but this time our hearts were broken. Tibi crossed the Rainbow Bridge on, of all days, the 4th of July.  Tibi, short for Trial Basis was our  “trial dog” for all of 12 hours before she became a full-fledged family member.

Jack saw a truck hit her, and the driver did not stop.  Jack was out of town but drove Tibi...

Rethink, Reflect and Reconnect!

By Paige Tucker On Feb 14, my girl Jessica and I rode to Atlanta for the Snarky Puppy concert. Yeah, I spent Valentine’s Day with my homegirl instead of my husband. You DID read that Snarky Puppy was involved, right? Ok, cool. We learned of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Florida on the way to the show. For the encore, Snarky Puppy invited Russian jazz singer and composer Alina Engibaryan to join them on, What Do You Think of This World Now? by Hubert Laws. The song was recorded in 1972 and I’ve included the lyrics within this...

Toddlerisms

By Paige Tucker One of the best things about having children has to be the way they make you laugh. They do and say the funniest things as they’re growing up and I for one wonder how I ever lived without that daily entertainment. And let’s be real, sometimes laughter is the only way to survive some of the crazy days with children! I love when my Julia Reynolds says things that are just slightly off and I don’t dare correct her! I know one day she won’t ask to go eat “noon-yuls” at Nuigi’s and that will be sad....
