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!
