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...]

Five on Friday: Beach Trip Edition

Hi friends!  I hope you've had an amazing week!  Our schools have been on Fall Break all week, so I took advantage and scooted to the beach with my BFF for some R&R.  I was pretty run down from work and that pesky cold-turned-cough, so it was a great time to catch up on my sleep and totally veg out in a beach chair for a few days!  We totally lucked out on the weather -- it was sunny and breezy every day!  Total win... This week's Five on … [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...]

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...]

What I’m Reading, Working On, and Loving

Happy Wednesday, y'all!  This week has already gotten away from me... I knew I'd be busy this summer, but MAN!  We had a minor flood in our basement storage room over the weekend so I've been sorting through that mess on top of what I already had on tap for the week.  #Boo.  Anyway, I'm popping in today to share what I'm reading, working on, and loving right now... A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I'd strayed from my bookish ways and had … [Read more...]

Five on Friday: Palm Print Fun

TGIF!!  What a tragic week in the news, y'all.  My heart just aches for the Orlando community -- first the Pulse shootings and then the Graves family tragedy at Disney.  What has stood out to me is the reactions... sadly lacking in grace and compassion.  I just keep praying for our country and the state of our hearts, y'all.  Will you join me? In other news, it's been a week of meetings, phone calls, and other Legacy business -- so fun to see … [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...]

Five on Friday

T.G.I.F.  And I MEAN that!  I'm ready to wind down this week, but not quite sure I'm ready to say goodbye to April!  #yikes  Thanks for sharing your thoughts on yesterday's porch plans post... I'm ready to get rocking on that bad boy. Today's Five on Friday is another dose of randomness but all good stuff... 1.  What Should I Read Next podcast.  Yes, another podcast, but it's another good one!  Anne Bogel from the blog The Modern … [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...]
