Sanctuary Vineyards | Wine grower of Excellence

North Carolina Vineyard

 

We are so proud of Shug!!  Sanctuary Vineyards has been selected “Winegrower of Excellence” for 2015 by the NC Winegrowers Association! John is excited to bring this award back to Currituck County, an area that he has always believed holds potential to grow world-class wines.

They have heard more than their fair share of skepticism along the way, but with 15 years of grape growing under their belt, SV is learning from the past, enjoying the present and optimistic about the future of fine wines in Currituck and North Carolina!

Day in their Life | Pops & Peaches

Our Weekend At Home

 

Sometimes, we get to spend a weekend at home hanging out with each other.  We stay in our pj’s, have pancakes and wrestle around.  It’s hard for me to lay low, so of course there’s a camera around.

The girls are becoming ‘sister’s’ more so now that Peaches is getting older and they can make their own relationship.  Lots of playing, giggles and for sure one getting on the other’s nerves.

Poppy is enjoying Kindergarten.  Still stubborn that it lasts ‘so long..’.  She loves her teacher and friends at school.  She is really into her extra Spanish she is learning, colors and animals.

Peaches is taking swim with Kristen Buchert, The Swim Lady.  Little Noah, her cousin goes around the same time, so it’s nice to drop Poppy at school, head over to swim and see my sissy and nephew.

We are preparing now for our annual family trip!  Can’t wait to post more family photos!

First Birthday Party | Easton

Growing Up Currituck

 

It’s hard to believe this little fella is 1 year old!! It feels like he’s been here forever but at the same time not nearly long enough to be talking and walking!
Amazing design by Christina Marie!  Growing up in Currituck, Easton is bound to hunt and fish like his daddy, and his party reflected it!  Fun, bright colors and edible play on fishing accessories made this party amazing!

Heavenly food and sweets by Cindy’s Kitchen in Coinjock.

Root head Decoy | Mayo Family History

Harker’s Island Decoy Contest

My daddy is so proud of this Pamlico County root head decoy that has been in our family since 1881, the history of the bird is below.

It won “People’s Choice” in the Harker’s Island Decoy Contest although it didn’t fit in any of the 10 categories that you could enter your decoy in, the judges liked it enough they gave it a blue ribbon.  Made my daddy pants happy, it’s truly one of a kind!!
