I’ve had this cute, red, gingham-lined picnic basket sitting in the corner of a closet for about, well, 3 years give or take. Before heading out for a hike or a trip to the park, I would look at it and think, nah.  Not today.  Am I lazy?  Probably.  Is it a bit cumbersome? Kinda.  But finally it hit me.  This would make a DANG good picture.  Haha – truth.  And my kids think it’s super fun to pack.

So there you have it.  The beginning of the “GVL Picnic Basket Series”. Where I will share my favorite picnic spots and hopefully get to see some of yours.  Inspire and be inspired right?

We sorta overdid it today with the picnic basket pics, but we were at my FAVORITE GREENVILLE SPOT EVER, which is the Rock Quarry Garden located in downtown Greenville (part of Cleveland Park).

It may be a small park, but indeed, it is well worth the trip.  Maybe it’s the beautiful landscaping (it is), or maybe it’s the waterfall (that too), or maybe just the peaceful setting (yep) – but no matter what, I guarantee you will find this garden the most magical spot – complete with flowers, a picturesque bridge, and huge green leaves (obviously I do not know the technical term.  But WOW).  You cannot pick a wrong spot to have your picnic.


Well done Greenville.  Well done.
