Farm/Bike Events Sponsored by the Swamp Rabbit Inn

I sold my farm this week ... but I will always be a farm girl at heart.  I grew up in Wisconsin, America's Dairyland and my mom had a huge garden that fed our family of six kids.  She made us help with weeding, picking and preparing the food we grew.  We also had chickens growing up. For a long time, as I lived and worked in Chicago I had no interest in growing anything but a few flowers until I moved to my 8 acre property in SC back in 2005,  then my passion for the farm returned.  I had a big garden and chickens and goats.  My ex-husband would always say "you can take the girl out of Wisconsin but you can't take the Wisconsin out of the girl".

Here are some pictures from my farm here in SC that I just sold this week:

I am very happy to find events happening here in Greenville, SC that I can get behind and sponsor like the upcoming GOFO's Urban Farm Tour tomorrow, May 17th (tickets available at the door or online) and Cycle to Farm Tour (register online before full) on June 14.  Both events combine two things that I love - farm fresh food and bikes : ))

The Making of an Inn Update - Designing the Guest Rooms at The Swamp Rabbit Inn Cycling B&B

IKEA I am resolved to make the weekly trek, ok twist my arm, to IKEA in Charlotte until each and every piece is ordered in an orderly fashion.  I chose to furnish the Inn solely in IKEA for two reasons.

1) I liked the price

AND ..

2) I heard the design is pretty brilliant with regards to style and function

Well, after my third trip there, I have to say I am getting the brilliance of the design.  My first trip several months ago was to "kick the tires", so to speak; to see if the quality met my standards for the inn.  It was a fairly overwhelming experience because it is HUGE and, if you are not familiar with the brand, it may not seem like your style, at least not right away.

My first trip confirmed that this was definitely the style I wanted for the inn.  It is simple, comes in fun colors, is super functional and has a laid back intelligence to it.  I think this modern, simplistic design with be joyful, playful and create a great place to escape to explore Greenville and ride bikes.  I think it will be whimsical and for a short getaway, transport guests into the right frame of mind to get on a bike and ride … childhood!

The main reason I like to ride my bike is because I am breathing in the fresh air, catching some sun and it makes me feel free!  It truly is a great escape and I hope you will stop in and check out our somewhat funky, fun interior the next time you pass through town or are in the neighborhood.

We will soon have a fleet of city bikes thanks to our new friend Randy at Carolina Triathlon and our bike socials begin in April.  Check back for more posts and to stay informed sign up for "News from the Inn" over there in the side bar.  We're pumped!  This is going to be fun!

P.S.  Here's a preview of the guest rooms.  We'll show before and afters in the next few weeks.  Kitchen cabinets arriving this week : )
