When you open your door at 8 am and the heat and humidity hit you square in the face, that can only mean one thing…. the dog days of summer are here! These hottest, most sultry days of summer are in July and August when the temperature climbs to dizzying levels.

Escape the heat and head indoors to some of the fabulous exhibits currently going on in museums across the South. Cooling off while viewing cool art – a great combination for this time of year!

    I love the quilts from Gee’s Bend (the photo at the top). I was fortunate to meet some of the women who make them when I was in high school… such an amazing story and beautiful art they make.
