When talk was first brought up about a party for my Mom’s 70th birthday this past November, my first thought was: we have to get Elvis! And in honor of Elvis’ birthday today, I wanted to share about the festivities. My Mom has been a fan of the King since she was a little girl […]

As mentioned in my last post, I was thrilled to attend last weekend’s grand opening of two temporary exhibits at the William J. Clinton Presidential Center in downtown Little Rock starring SNOOPY!

Now that the holidays are over and everything has calmed back down, I took some time this week to reflect on favorite travel memories from the past year.

I Scream, You Scream – for the Fort Smith Museum of History!
Last Sunday, the Fort Smith Museum of History was a super sweet place to officially say goodbye to summer as it hosted a community-wide ice cream social inside its historic building’s old fashioned Soda Fountain and Pharmacy. Paying just $5.00 gave guests entry to all of the museum’s exhibits plus all-you-can-eat make-your-own sundaes. Yum! I’ve […]
