A road trip east to Wilson NC, led us to Flo’s Kitchen- one of my friend Mike Moore’s hometown favorites. Here’s the story.
Can’t wait to go back- Oh the biscuits and the southern hospitality!!
What’s the best way to learn about reasons and motivations? Culture and history? If you have the privilege, you go to the source.
So many of us have lost the stories of our family’s past to time and circumstances. How often do we sit around a table and learn from our older generations how they lived and why?
Here in the mountains of North Carolina we are surrounded by a cultural & natural history that predates any of us. So to learn about that history, Mike Moore, Elliot Moss and Justin Burdett went to the source.
This is what we learned.
Many thanks to

Smith Mill Works is an amazing greenhouse complex that is currently undergoing an extensive renovation. Michael Klatt, one of the collaborators in the project wanted some nice shots of the property prior to it’s full restoration. This is that “before” overview.
It’s exciting to think of how this project will turn out- you can find out more here- Smith Mill Works
The name says it all- “Come rain or shine” these two were going to get what they came for…. that being a beautiful mountain-top wedding surrounded by the people they love!!! Well, after consulting many radar maps and lots of thoughtful chin scratching from all party’s involved, the Go-Ahead was given! The rain and thunder made for lots of laughter and created a dramatic backdrop for the knot being tied.
Congrats to Megan and Matt, who truly know how to roll with the punches and make it all look like fun! Hoping all your years ahead are filled with the same spice we saw on your “Big Day”!
