Five Friday Happy Bringers — 6/20/14

Friday and I are BFF.  I love her!

Here are five reasons I’m joyful.

1.  Attending Fawn Smiley’s hip Grand Opening of her Hidden Well Acupuncture on Houston Street here in historic district Savannah (just a few blocks from my place).

3.  Great meal at Watershed on Peachtree in Atlanta.  That’s Indigo Girl Amy (and Watershed co-owner) behind me in the black t-shirt.)
