As I was reviewing my emails today, I ran across this quote by Henry David Thoreau: “That man is richest whose pleasures are cheapest.” And it struck me how very true that is, particularly at this time of the year when we are all tempted (and, everywhere we turn, encouraged) to spend, spend, spend. Frankly, […]

This past weekend we braved the snow to check out both the holiday pop-up at Kress and the Product of Montgomery store at 1228 Madison. If you’re still looking for interesting gifts for the folks on your list, we can’t recommend the Madison store highly enough (and Kress, though it was amazing, is now closed). […]

Thanksgiving kicks off an annual mad riot of festivities. Folks deck the halls for weeks. They plan and prep and freeze-for-later. They festoon with seasonal lights and inflate balloon critters in the yard. They welcome the holidays and gladden hearts. But Grinch that I am, I refuse to compete in the Holiday Olympics. And (of […]

Ah yes, more change. This year the Capitol Heights Neighborhood is not offering its traditional Christmas Tour of Homes. This year will feature a gala and a tour of just one home. But what a home it is! It is a famous home, one of Capitol Height’s most lovely, and recently in the news. First, […]

Well, it may not be Herald angels singing, but I do have big news regarding singing for the start of the Holiday Season. The Reckon Crew is coming to Town. It may not be Santa, but we are sure enough planning a good time for all and we are not particularly concerned about “naughty and […]

Delicious Holiday Fare: The Long Christmas Dinner/The Santland Diaries

Holidays in Montgomery are (luckily) not like “back home” in the frigid north. In the Gump, I get stuck in shopping traffic on the way to play tennis.

One of my first posts for MML was about Rescued Relics, our salvage warehouse at Old Alabama Town. So I thought it was time for an update on what has been a huge success! We initiated this innovative way to produce income when the city budget cuts took their toll on our operations here at Old […]

The Capitol Heights by Candlelight Christmas Tour has been a Montgomery tradition for 27 years. It’s a living tradition, often sporting a new element or two. This year as you tour the historic homes, look for the gingerbread houses. Gingerbread also has a long tradition and I am getting ready to tell you some tales! […]
