Five on Friday: Thoughts on Our Move

Happy Fall and TGIF!  My word, what a wacky week!  I could've sworn it was a full moon with all the strange things that went on... but I made it through and now I'm on FALL BREAK.  #blessit  Today we're headed to Augusta for my daughter's white coat ceremony and then I'm off to the beach on an extended girls' trip!  Woo hoo!  I plan to do a lot of resting, reading, laughing, and sunning.  If you follow me on Instagram, you'll get some peeks at … [Read more...]

Five on Friday: New Finds

TGIF, friends!  And what a wacky busy week it was, in spite of Monday's holiday!  We're keeping a close eye on Irma -- we have friends, family, and a grandbaby in Florida and two of my kids close to the Georgia coastline.  We're praying for everyone's safety (and wise decisions!) and opening our home in case it's needed. These storms are so scary!!  And the photos coming out of our beloved St. Thomas/St John are devastating.  Another long … [Read more...]

Five on Friday: Turning 50

Hi there, friends!  I had no intention of being gone so long!  But I was hijacked by a surprise 50th birthday celebration AND getaway for several days and have been digging out from under ever since. :)  I've had my nose to the grindstone for the last several months and have been reluctant to get away -- I didn't want to spend the money OR take the time away from what's been all-consuming.  But apparently my husband and BFF had other ideas.  … [Read more...]

Five on Friday: Valentine’s Day Edition

Whew, TGIF!  With Valentine's Day right around the corner, it seemed only fitting to have today's Five on Friday be all about the Valentine, right?  I'm not one for decorating for this day, but I have a few fun things to share that should make your day extra special! 1.  This playing card wreath... I love this idea!!  And just think, it's the perfect project if you have a deck that's missing a few cards. :) Refresh Living 2.  This sweet love … [Read more...]

Five on Friday {Insta-Faves Edition}

Hi there, friends... January is just slip-sliding away, isn't it??  Registration at Legacy has been cranking and so another busy week is winding down. :)  I've been working away on my purging projects and will share a post on progress here soon.  I've also got a sweet little DIY coming you way... I know -- shocking, right??  But in the meantime, I wanted to share five of my faves from Instagram this week.  A couple of these are giving me some … [Read more...]

Five on Friday: 2016 Favorites Edition

TGIF, friends!  It's been a challenge getting back into the swing this week and now SNOW is on the way!  Of course, here in ATL, it could end up being nothing, but I hit the grocery store yesterday afternoon for a few staples (and extras!) yesterday, just in case.  Anyhoo, I know we're six days into 2017 now, but I thought for our first Five on Friday for the year it would be fun to share my favorites from 2016... 1.  Favorite project. 2016 … [Read more...]

2016: Highlights and Lowlights

Where to begin?  Now that I'm finally catching my breath a bit, it seemed like a good time to reflect on 2016 before turning the page to the new year... and I'm READY to turn the page! 2016 was the year of change around here... One of the biggest was opening our preschool after quite the journey.  This time last year I was in the midst of sharing our Legacy Story here on the blog.  But within a month or so, when Legacy was registering … [Read more...]

Five on Friday {Champagne Cocktail Edition}

I'm back today with a fun Five on Friday to help us ring in the New Year -- some festive champagne drinks for your celebration!  I've been on the couch most of the week with my *annual* holiday head cold, but I'm looking forward to sipping one of these tomorrow evening during our own little New Years Eve celebration. So because I know you probably have a healthy to-do list for today I'll get right to it... 1.  Christmas Champagne Cocktail.  … [Read more...]

Five on Friday {Recipe Edition}

TGIF, friends!  We're up at the lake celebrating the hubs' birthday with a crowd of friends this weekend, so a good chunk of my week was spent meal-planning and coordinating.  Alas, my holiday decorating has suffered because of it, but first things first!  During all these preparations, I thought a fun Five on Friday would be recipes -- because you know we're all cooking over the holidays! So this is a small collection of recipes I have either … [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...]
