    Edie Williams: Ponte Vedran of the Week

    This darling lady’s favorite movie is Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and judging by her life, she lives by his motto, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

    Readers, please meet Edie Williams. She’s a full time State Farm agent and mother of 5 kids — ages 20s down to 2!

    A-DORE-ABLE family

    What?! She clearly knows how to enjoy life.

    Name:  Edie Williams-Cook

    Occupation: State Farm Agent

    Where I grew up: a small country town Rushville, IL.  So small that when my step father was elected Sheriff, we lived in the county jail!

    A Ponte Vedran since: 1999

    Other Places I have lived? Illinois

    My favorite thing about Ponte Vedra: We live where people vacation!

    My least favorite thing about Ponte Vedra:  There’s no central place to hang out and feel the sense of community.

    In my spare time I like too? Take a breath and relax by just being.

    Ponte Vedran you most admire:  They aren’t aware, but the Mickler family that lives on Neck Road in the same cozy home that’s been there for years.  They just seem so content to stay in their sweet family home that’s been there forever even though change is swirling all around them.

    My favorite time in Ponte Vedra: Now because I can walk from my home to the beach and see turkey, deer, and owls along the way.

    Dream Vacation other than Ponte Vedra? There’s a place called Christmas Island and I think it just sounds magical.

    If I could invite anyone over to dinner – 2 Ponte Vedrans and one famous person – who would you invite?  Myself, my hubby and Dolly Parton.  I just think it’d be some really silly and fun conversation!

    Last time you went to the beach: Today

    Last time you saw live music: October in Nashville

    Favorite Ponte Vedra organization: Christ Episcopal Church

    Favorite Ponte Vedra restaurant (or area): Medure

    Favorite place for a cocktail: Toss up between barefoot in my driveway and a road sodie on my beach bike!

    Favorite way to get exercise here: Pushing my twin baby girls in the stroller

    Favorite movie: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

    Favorite TV show: Sunday Morning

    Favorite book: The Art of Racing in the Rain

    Favorite band or music: Right now I like silence because it’s a rare thing in my world!
