Home Tour of Moss Mountain Farm ~ P Allen Smith


I going to start off by apologizing for all of the photos I am about to post.  I had the privilege to join several Arkansas Women Bloggers at P Allen Smith’s home for Farm2home 2015.  If you missed the post about my incredible day at Moss Mountain Farms, you can check it out here.

Okay, here we go, Home Tour of Moss Mountain – P Allen Smith….


The entry way is fabulous.  I just love the colors.




When I arrived, I wasn’t sure what to expect but after visiting with with family and touring the grounds, I highly recommend stopping by if you are in the area.  If you are looking a destination to camp or park your RV, I would put this Krause Springs at the top of my list.

Jacobs Well in Wimberly, Texas is considered one of the most dangerous diving spots in the world, yet people flock to see it every year.  It has a fantastic history and is one of those rare feats of nature that you can actually get up close and personal with but there are going to be changes for visitors beginning May 2015.  You can check out all of the information on my travel blog Sweet Southern Traveler.

Farm2home 2015~ P Allen Smith

I have been a long time fan of P Allen Smith so I jumped at a chance to visit Moss Mountain Farm.  It was in incredible day filled with information from the great people at Arkansas Grown and Arkansas Made.  Living on a family farm, I appreciate the hard work and care it takes grow our food and how important it is to support locally made and grown products.  It’s not only important to know where our food comes from but that we are feeding our families healthy, nutritious foods.


Not only did I get to hang out with P Allen Smith but I got to hang out with some amazing men and women with Arkansas Women Bloggers and local producers around Arkansas.


 We had the opportunity to sample some great products for vendors around Arkansas.


 I would love to have this truck….seriously, it’s cute and has ice cream!

Maternity Photos, Biloxi, MS


For my daughters maternity photos, we decided to travel to Biloxi, Ms to capture these beautiful beach shots.  This is my first grandchild and I am so excited….you can also expect many photos of my grandchild once he is born.  His name is Daniel Edward Shelman III (aka Tripp) and he due to arrive in this world on August 31, 2015.


Isn’t she one beautiful mama to be?  I keep telling her that Tripp will look back at the photos one day and say WOW….I’m sure all of his friends will be jealous.  I never looked that good pregnant (or any other time).  

Garvan Woodland Gardens ~ Hot Springs, AR

I had been seeing so many beautiful photos online about the Tulips at Garvan Woodland Gardens in Hot Springs, AR  that I made a quick trip to photograph some of them.  Here is a sample of some of the photos I took.  You can see all of the photos and read the full post on my travel blog Southern Blue Traveler.

Happy Memorial Day everyone.  I decided to work today (I know, crazy huh?)  and decided to take  pictures of this old bicycle propped up next to this antique store here in the park.

I have had several people ask for the pimento cheese recipe used in these photos.  I don’t have any particular recipe since I usually look into the refrigerator and use what I have.


While my sister and I was traveling the Texas Hill Country photographing bluebonnets, we ran across an employee of Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA).  When we asked for recommendations for a beautiful location to photograph, he suggested Mulseshoe Bend.  And boy was he right !  It was perfect!
