So, there!

I've never thought of myself as a Mobilian. Actually, I've always seen myself as a "transplant" to this town, but when I read this article in the new Garden & Gun, I was so excited about our Mobile Bay feature story, and for the first time, I actually felt like a Mobilian...if that makes any sense at all.

The article made me feel proud of our town, and it was as if they were referring to my home. This is a big step for me, since I've always thought of Chattanooga as my real home. Although the 'noog will always hold a extra special place in heart, Mobile Bay is my home now, and I love it. What a great article — so well written and witty. Winston Groom, the author of Forest Gump and a Mobile native, wrote this story, and I think he did a fantastic job. He ends every paragraph with "So, there!" Make sure and read the entire article...and I promise you'll be saying "So there!" with Winston....
A great picture of my favorite people's dads! Rebekah Phillips Webb is a fellow graphic designer, and I have loved getting to know her over the past few years. Her father, pictured below, is Charles Phillips, who owns an amazing antique store just outside of Mobile, called you guessed it...Charles Phillips Antiques. I could walk around there for hours. If you've never been, you must see this place! Definitely worth the drive!!

Well, I could talk to Rebekah for hours about fonts, Mac software, whether to get adobe cs4 or cs5 and what plugin to download....you know, we speak the same dorky design language! But I could also talk to her about anything going on in my life...she's one of those people you immediately feel comfortable around. Check out Rebekah's website...she is so talented!

And finally, I can't mention the Garden & Gun article and not give a shoot out to East Bay Clothiers. They were one of the "featured shops" in the G&G article, which doesn't surprise me at all! I'm in the process of redesigning their website, and am very excited about the creative approach we are taking. Stay tuned to see the progress! Genie McCown is fabuous — she is larger than life and such a joy to work with. I am honored to redesign their website. So...if you're in Fairhope, you must stop by EBC and check out their fabulous clothes. Genie has great taste, and the clothes they carry are top of the line!



  1. Garden and Gun is the business! Love it. Making the South cool again.

  2. Hey Meg! I know. Finally a magazine Bruner and I can BOTH enjoy! Hope you're doing well!!
