In Case You Missed It (September & October)

I cannot believe it's already November!  It seems like time just speeds up from year to year, doesn't it?  Well, at least I got back on a semi-regular posting schedule. :)  So just in case you've missed something from the last couple of months... I caught you up on my life lately back in September -- which was a whole lotta Legacy and getting my kiddos off and running on new adventures. You wouldn't believe how much those sweet peas in … [Read more...]

Five on Friday: Fall Fashion Edition

TGIF!  Whew, another week down and it was a good one.  Earlier this week I was seriously under the weather and to pass the time I prowled around on Pinterest for some fun fall outfits.  It's been so warm here I have yet to wear a sweater or boots!  But I found some fun outfits I would totally wear and thought I'd share them with you for today's Five on Friday ... just in case you need a little inspiration for your own wardrobe! 1.  Chambray, … [Read more...]

A Front Porch Peek!

Hi friends...  I've been under the weather this week (ugh -- who has time for that??) so I'm behind on my front porch progress, of course.  But I've done enough that I thought I'd share a peek at it today after all. We've had sunny warm weather so at least it's been pleasant while I'm out there, even if it doesn't feel particularly fall-like.  I think the kiddos will be trick or treating in shorts this weekend! Remember that I spray … [Read more...]

Country Living Fair 2016

Monday, Monday... that alarm clock was tough to handle this morning and I'm not feeling so hot, but -- onward!  I had a full weekend of Country Living Fair, college football, house cleaning, church, and porch decorating and then a Legacy board meeting last night ... whew!  We finally have a touch a chill in the air (hope it lasts!?!) so it's easy to embrace the wonderful that is fall at last. I hit the Fair on Friday as promised and it did NOT … [Read more...]

Country Living Fair Bound!

Happy Friday, friends... it's been a busy week and I'm headed to the fair today -- the Country Living Fair, that is!  I'm so excited to get some inspiration and hopefully get a head start on some holiday shopping!  Last year I scored quite a few unique things so I have high hopes for this year as well. I've made some more progress on my porch, so hopefully will be ready to share that soon.  I've taken the pressure off though because I know the … [Read more...]

What I’m Reading, Loving, and Working On…(and a Winner!)

Thank you to those that entered my Country Living Fair giveaway!  I've put the lucky winner at the bottom of this post... October is already flying by, isn't it?  I feel like I'm already running from one thing to another, don't you?  I have to say, though, October is one of my favorite months of the year with so many festive events, the gorgeous shift to fall weather and that teensy window of time to just enjoy before the madness of the … [Read more...]

Country Living Fair Giveaway!

FRIDAY!!  Oh my gosh, this month is totally getting away from me...

You all know how much I love the Country Living Fair that comes our way each fall (you can see my posts from previous years HERE, HERE, and HERE) and this year is no exception!  I'm super … [Read more...]

Five on Friday: Fall Inspiration Edition

I'm back!  Whew... I think it's a full moon??  Either way, I'm ready for the weekend to try to kick a bad head cold and make some progress in my booth and my house for fall.  In some idle BRAIN DEAD moments, I've pinned a few fall inspiration ideas that have got me longing for a crisp autumn day. :)  So today's Five on Friday will share a few faves! 1.  The new fall collection at Lindsay Letters... I've ordered prints from her several times … [Read more...]

Life Lately…

Friends!!  It's been FOREVER since I posted!  This weekend was my first to truly catch my breath in quite a few weeks and I am so happy to be back and bringing you up to speed on life lately.  It's been a whirlwind!  But yesterday I took in some of the ceremonies and TV shows reflecting on September 11th... it's hard to believe that 15 years have passed since that terrible day.  And I still heard stories I have never heard before -- of individual … [Read more...]

Country Living Fair 2015

Well, that weekend flew by, but we had such a great time with our out-of-town friends!  Sandy and I took in the Country Living Fair on Saturday and made a day of it.  The weather was perfect -- overcast and mild -- for strolling between the vendors, enjoying some music and good food, and shopping like crazy. One of things I love about the CL Fair is that I always come away inspired!  The Country Living folks and all of the vendors do such an … [Read more...]
