Five on Friday

Good Friday morning, friends.  First of all, I am once again heartbroken by a terrorist massacre... how many of these must we see?  My thoughts and prayers are with the people of France today.  I can't even begin to comment further, but I know you share my grief over this latest attack. I intended to finish up my porch this week among other things, but alas Legacy projects and meetings took precedence.  There is soooo much cooking right now to … [Read more...]

This ‘n That Wednesday

Howdy!  I hope you all had great Fourth of July weekend!  I did a little bit of Legacy work and a whole lotta relaxing poolside with the hubs.  I even managed to sleep in a bit!  #holidayweekendforthewin Today I thought I'd share a little of this 'n that from the last several days.  First of all, my BFF, my Girl, and I took in Emily Giffin's launch party for her new book First Comes Love.  I'm a huge fan of her stories and she is so funny and … [Read more...]

Five on Friday: Anniversary Edition!

Howdy, friends!  The hubs and I have escaped to one of our favorite spots for the weekend -- Lake Rabun... we're celebrating 10 years of marriage/blended family today!  So of course, that tops the list for today's Five on Friday. :) 1.  The plunge...  if you didn't already know, we got married at his aunt's home on Lake Rabun and jumped off the boathouse after saying our vows. Lots of wonderful memories from that special day!  In ten … [Read more...]

Helllloooooo, Summer!

Hard to believe it but the month of May is history and we're in summer mode here in ATL.  The irony is that during my teaching years I found myself in leisurely hog-heaven on June 2. This year however I think leisure will be hard to come by as we get Legacy ready to rock on August 10th.  So I'm navigating new waters of having a hefty to-do list, no set schedule, and lots of summer time activities that may have to fall by the wayside.   However, … [Read more...]

This ‘n That Monday

Hello, friends and happy Monday to you!  I hope y'all had a great weekend.  If you follow me on Instagram or we're friends on Facebook, you probably saw the fun time we had at the Kenny Chesney concert in Auburn AL!  So fun on so many levels -- great friends, a beautiful day, a sweet ride over and back, and some AMAZING music in a happy place. Here's a few peeks... I needed this little 'getaway' for many reasons and it didn't … [Read more...]

This ‘n That Monday

Happy Cyber Monday, friends!  Have you got your holiday shopping on yet?  I have a few things I'll be ordering today, but for the most part I try to shop all year so the financial hit isn't so hard this time of year. :)  The blogosphere is loaded with Gift Guides the past few days, and though I was tempted to put one together myself, I thought I'd just share a little randomness with you today. All 7 of us were together (briefly!) on … [Read more...]

This ‘n That Monday

Hi friends... Well, I checked out again for a bit, but I'm back!  I spent 10 days in Texas with my family at the beginning of October, taking in some Texas Aggie football and then trekking to Amarillo to celebrate my dad's 80th birthday.  It was such sweet family time...   And so then, when I got back, I had to hit the ground running for Legacy (more on that this week).  And so while I intended to post last week, life got in … [Read more...]

What I’m Reading, Loving, and Working On

Greetings, dear friends!!  I didn't intend to be gone so long, but I'm happy to be back.  I have a story to tell about my time away, but I'll save that for another day.    Right now my summer is in full swing and I've been relishing the down time after a crazy few months.    Right now I've got Wimbeldon on the TV and lots of sleeping young people in the house... life is good. I thought I'd share what I'm reading, loving and working on today... … [Read more...]

Five on Friday (and my Winter Mantel)

Friday, y'all... and I am so thankful.  This was another week of meetings and prayer as my precious school is being put through the ringer.  I can't go into all the details yet, but let me just say: Satan is alive and well.  I have never experienced spiritual warfare before, but I'm enduring it now.  So if my posts are a bit scarce for a while it is because I am drained.  BUT, I am optimistic and continue praying and seeking joy in my … [Read more...]

It Was an Insta-Christmas!

Whew!!  What an amazing week we had with my family in Texas!  Our travel out there was rocky (to say the least), but once we got there it was a lovely relaxing time with some of my favorite people.  If you followed along on Instagram, I apologize for the duplicate pics, but there's a few new ones in here, too!  And there are a few photos I've saved for our New Years cards so I'll share those soon.   Yes, I decided to send NY cards this year, … [Read more...]
