Stay at Park House Bed and Breakfast. Private, quiet, luxury rooms. Delicious, gourmet breakfast. Afternoon wine and cheese on the front porch.

Eat brunch, lunch or dinner at The Green Room. The eggs benedict and home fries are delightful.

Sip some coffee at Coffee Underground. It really is underground. And have them spike your drink with something fancy.

Spend at least an hour at the Mast General Store on Main Street.

Stroll Falls Park on South Main Street. Walk the suspension bridge…it shakes a little bit. Invigorating. Face your fears.

Indulge in tapas at  The Art Bar on Main. Peruse local art in a casual, laid back setting. And if you are feeling saucy, buy something!

Last but not least, do everything on foot. Greenville has so much to offer their pedestrians. Even in the rain 🙂

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit D.C for a few days before heading further north for a wedding in upstate New York. Our first stop was Arlington Cemetery. Spanning 624 acres of rolling Virginian hillside, this massive landscape is the final resting ground for over 300,000 military personnel. 27-30 funerals are performed here each day. The numbers are so large, it’s easy to think of Arlington only as a memorial for all who protect our freedom. Personnel – such an empty word until I stood on the grounds, and saw the rows of endless white gravestones.

I'm as happy as Manuel about the progress!

We are up and running folks but are under some serious construction…

In the meantime, peruse my photography website, Life Unfolding, along with some other wonderful blogs and webpages:

And if you are wondering who that angel of a boy is in the photo above, his name is Manuel, the youngest of four children in the Rosales family hailing from Tijuana, Mexico. In June of 2009, I traveled with Double Impact-Nashville to rural Tijuana for a 9 days volunteer trip. We worked alongside the family, and the Amor Ministries team to build this adorable boy and his brother and sisters a new home. We couldn’t give them an extreme home makeover, but we could offer them a set of hands and a lot of love to build a safe house. And wouldn’t you know, they even had a covered patio. View it here, along with the rest of my photos from the trip.
