Activities abound year-round, including the annual Mardi Gras fabulous series of parades and elegant balls (in January/February), Arts & Crafts Festival (in March), Sailboat Regatta (in April), Eastern Shore Triathalon (in May), Red Snapper Season (off the Pier in June), Humidity Festival (in July and August), Sunset Wine Festival (every night in September), Five Rivers Bird Festival (in October), Film Festival (in November), Tree Lighting Festival (in December) and these are just naming a few --- all highly acclaimed with an international following!!! Every First Friday is the official Art Walk in downtown Fairhope when the whole town gets decked out in artistic attire to stroll the streets enjoying downtown merchant offerings of special sales, free libations of adult beverages, classic Southern hors d'oeuvres, open parties, and with musical groups on every corner. This eclectic downtown is bursting with art galleries and street artists, boutiques, bookstores, and restaurants featured on the Food Network. Enjoy the warm and friendly charm of a walkable Southern town as you dine, shop, strut and stroll!

Would love to say my life motto is "keep it simple," but that is not how it has turned out! I enjoy entertaining, cooking new recipes, avoiding political discussions, consuming vegetables, feeding our turtles, exercise, getting older, farmers markets, great nutrition, attending community art walks, creative ideas, innovative architecture, getting up each morning, positive mind-sets, live theater, nurturing young minds, visiting children/grandchildren and meeting interesting, like-minded people.
