lake oconee ga: DEpersonalizing Is Clutch In Your Very PERSONAL Decision - 08/20/11 03:56 AM
DEpersonalizing Is Clutch In Your Very PERSONAL Decision. I recently visited the home of a friend in North Carolina who is trying to sell her home. Normally when you walk into her house you're wrapped in the comfort of photos of friends and family, trinkets from her travels, and just a general feel for who she is and where she's been. It is, after all, her home. Thus, after her Agent got ahold of it, is no longer the case. The wall decorations are minimal. The countertops are clear. Family and friends...what family and friends? I talked to my friend about … (7 comments)

lake oconee ga: Richards Wine Bar-Lake Oconee, Georgia - 08/01/11 03:58 AM
I joined a group of girlfriends recently at the newest addition to the food and beverage world on Lake Oconee, Richards Wine Bar. It's the perfect little spot for catching up, a private party, or even a date night with your significant other. Owner Richard Matthews expanded on his already successful wine store, Classic Wines, which he established in 2006, by opening the bar in the same location as his store in the Village Commerce Center.
We wasted no time on our visit sampling pretty much everything on the menu. My favs were the Southern Pimento Cheese with Crisped Prosciutto, Hand … (4 comments)

Photos From Great Day On The Water-Lake Oconee, Georgia. Had such a great time getting out on the water and enjoying a bit of this holiday weekend.

After about a week of some much, much needed rain I am excited to see that the weather plans to clear up just in time for one of the biggest times here on Lake Oconee, July 4th weekend!

lake oconee ga: "Excuse Me Are My Teeth Red?"-Lake Oconee Food & Wine Festival - 05/16/11 02:12 AM
This past weekend Drew and I attended the Lake Oconee Food and Wine Festival at Reynolds Landing. The tent was packed with tons of familiar faces, everyone looked to be having a good time, and Redeemer Episcopal Academy‘s academic and enrichment programs should fare well from the proceeds of both the silent and live auctions. Tons of local restaurants were on hand preparing tasty samples and wine vendors were there to wash it all down with wines from all over the world. Two of my favorite things in one place. I was a very happy camper!
What was my favorite? Let’s … (19 comments)
