Colorful Summer Pasta Salad

Easy, healthy, and colorful! This recipe is great for large groups at parties or picnics, and can easily be adjusted to accommodate smaller crowds. It's a refreshing twist on regular pasta salads and is lighter than most that contain a creamy base.

Visit Rock City, Lookout Mountain, GA

Rock City sits on Lookout Mountain in north Georgia, which is located about 6 miles outside of Chattanooga, Tennessee. It's a great family friendly experience because it not only incorporates physical exercise though all of the natural rock formations, but it takes everyone on a nature adventure, through caves and other "attractions" to keep you intrigued.

How to Refinish Wood Chairs

A little bit of TLC and some fresh paint can turn anything into a lovely new piece. I love a bargain, and when I found these two kid chairs at the curb on trash day I had to snag them. Mind you, they were pretty rough looking and needed some repair, but nothing my husband couldn't fix prior to refinishing. We literally turned trash into treasure (ha!).

Hike Raven Cliff Falls Trail, Georgia

Raven Cliff Falls trail is located near Helen, Georgia, and is 5 miles total round trip. The trail runs along Dodd Creek and has a beautiful waterfall as the finale.
