Maw Maw’s Potato Salad is a Southern savory side dish that I wanted to share with y’all!  It’s soooo good.

My best friend, Carol Ray, her folks, our 2 fishermen-boy’s, and I just spent a relaxing couple of days in Star Valley, Wy.  It was kick-back-country living to the this city girl…

Have you been to Afton, Wyoming?  It’s breath taking- just SO beautiful!  I tried to capture some of it to bring home and share 🙂

Let me introduce you to Maw Maw- she’s the sweetest little southern lady you ever will meet! (AND she makes a prettty mean potato salad too).  Maw Maw and Paw Paw are visiting from Texas for a few weeks, they are Carol Ray’s (center in photo) parents.

We were chillaxing most of the time but I wanted to share some of our outings with you…

Come along with me on my morning photography-run  (or walk/run/stop/take pictures and not get much excercise, was a little more like it)…

Oh…  and you just might be lucky enough to snap a photo with an awesome classic car like Carol and I, this is a Crosley Metropolitian.  (so says Paw Paw who knows every make, model, and year of automobile out there!)
