Goodbye turkey - hello pizza

This week we let Cody Pickren take a turn as our guest photographer. See if you can guess which photos are the work of the spunky fifth grader. And speaking of photographers, it looks like one of them has been off-roading in Point Washington again!

Everybody loves Melinda

We were so pleased to be chosen as the venue for Melinda Pickren's surprise birthday party. Her husband Chris escorted her into a sea of friends who helped her celebrate how fabulous she is. Happy birthday, Melinda!

Via Colori

Thanks so much to Joe Cloutier and his team of artists (including gorgeous daughter Kylie) for decorating our square at Via Colori last weekend. The proceeds from Via Colori benefited the Seaside School, so we were very happy to participate and support such a great school. Thanks, again, Joe!

Check out the photos and news coverage of the Cloutier family's adventures following the American Idol contest.

Cottages for Kids

We wanted you to know about a very important event happening in our community called Cottages for Kids. It is sponsored by the Children's Volunteer Health Network (CVHN), an organization that facilitates free medical, dental and mental health for uninsured and underinsured children in Walton and Okaloosa counties. Cottages for Kids is CVHN's major fundraising event. There are 13 AMAZING play cottages currently on display in Rosemary Beach that will be auctioned on Saturday, November 24 at 2:00. They have been donated and designed by local builders, architects and interior designers.

Our buddy JD will be the celebrity auctioneer and was kind enough to forward these videos so you can see some of the playhouses on display.

Bryan and I are committed to supporting this organization, so we wanted to let you know how you can help as well.

EAT A PIZZA BY THE SEA - Starting tomorrow and continuing through auction day, we will give a percentage of our sales to CVHN.

BUY RAFFLE TICKETS - There is an adorable house that will not be part of the auction and will be won exclusively by raffle. The drawing will be held at 1:00 on Saturday, 11/24. Raffle tickets are $5 and can be purchased during the tours.

  • Saturday, 11/17 - 11:00-3:00

Lots of people, lots of photos, lots of fun

A great group gathered to welcome the cold weather, so of course I went crazy with the camera trying to capture all of the shiny, happy people. How gorgeous is Baby Ava in the first photo?
