Our friend Cody Collett and his new bride had their wedding reception here in October. His mother, Tina Collett, my childhood friend since 2nd grade, is phenomenal at planning an event.  Cody requested a tent and barbeque. "Keep it simple" he said...  I know at some point I will have to add a special section for Tina Collett. She is the perfect example of a Southern Bell. She is always throwing a baby shower, anniversary party, etc. for someone and makes me look like a rookie.

This is where we spend much of our time. It doesn't look like much in this picture but it is easily transformed into an inviting entertainment area.
