Birthplace: Erie, Pennsylvania, during a 4 ft snowstorm, but raised in College Park and Fayette County so Atlanta is home.
Favorite Atlanta meal: Tie: Charbroiled oysters, hush puppies and Cajun crawfish at Bon Ton. Pork skins, fried pickles, and the rib plate at B's Cracklin BBQ.
Favorite Atlanta place to hang out with Dexter (the most handsome 4 yr old Carolina Dog): No competition - the gardens and native oak forest on the grounds of The Carter Center. There’s a hilltop with a great view of downtown (the land was actually General Sherman’s headquarters during the Battle of Atlanta), and a lake he’s only jumped in once. It’s our little piece of paradise in the middle of the city. Plus, it’s just a short walk to Victory Sandwich Bar so he gets his exercise and I get a cocktail!
Album of the Moment: Currently revisiting Missy Elliot Supa Dupa Fly.

Shannon on Aylor: "I was fortunate to meet Aylor for the first time a few years ago when we were both working elsewhere. I was immediately captivated by her warmth, humor and intelligence. As fate would have it, we get to work together again -- and I could not be more grateful :) Stop by the shop, and say hi sometime!"
