Shop Savannah Made this Christmas

Shop Savannah Made this Christmas

I’m fortunate to be submersed in a community of fellow makers and it is a privelege to know so many talented people and see their wares often. However, I know many people in the greater Savannah area would love to shop handmade and local this Christmas, but maybe they aren’t sure where to start. Savannah has a diverse group of skilled creatives, makers, and artisans, so I’m breaking this down into helpful categories; hostess gifts, cards, bath time, jewelry, for kids, for her, for him. Enjoy!   Hostess Gifts Blue Poppy is owned by a dear friend of mine, Amy Shippy,...

What Happens in the Waiting

What Happens in the Waiting

  I’m a former Miss Georgia, and some people find this interesting.  When people first learn this “interesting fact” about my life, they probably have a hard time reconciling what they think a “beauty queen” is supposed to look like with the tired middle-aged mom of twins standing in front of them.  Or, maybe that’s just my own insecurities about getting older making me paranoid.

Feeding a Toddler: Part 1

Feeding a Toddler: Part 1

Hi, I’m Dr. Jessica Donaldson from Children’s Care at Memorial Health. About a year ago, I gave some thoughts on infant nutrition. Today, I’d like to continue on the topic of nutrition for another tricky age group- Toddlers! (I will start off by saying that these are general recommendations, derived from The American Academy of Pediatrics, but may not apply to every situation, so please discuss specific concerns with your child’s Pediatrician) These days, we see as many “picky eaters” as “over-eaters” in the toddler age range, so we’ll discuss both! What do I do for a picky eater? This...

"They think she may have cancer..." - Olivia's Story

Written by Roxanne Gil  The Gil Family. Adam, baby Roslyn (7months), Jude (11), Olivia (2), Not pictured Elianna (20)  “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times,” this line from Charles Dickens’ classic, A Tale of Two Cities, is the closest way to describe our journey into my daughter’s cancer diagnosis. Best of times? Sounds crazy, I know, but it's the truth! I will get to that.             It was around January of this year when Olivia first showed signs of something not being quite right. She had a cold, which is harmless enough, but during...
