I Had a Post Planned for Today

You know how that goes?  Well, my good intentions did not pan out over the weekend.  You see, on Friday we had our first annual Legacy Christian School Golf Tournament -- and we had dear friends from out of town here for the event.  After running my legs off last week with last minute preparations, yesterday I felt like I had been run over by a golf cart.  For pics of the event head to the Legacy Facebook page! And so, once our guests got 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...]

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...]

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...]

The Meaning of Legacy

Hi gang ~ I hope your weekend was wonderful!  I had a great time at Lake Rabun with my in laws and a bunch of other "girls"... we had a such fun catching up and celebrating my SIL's career as an educator.  Here was my view each morning when I woke up... It was a good time for me to unplug for a couple of days, too.  I've spent some time over the last week or so thinking a lot about Legacy, so I thought I'd share a little of that brain … [Read more...]

Five on Friday: Random Thoughts

T.G.I.F.  Y'all.  The past few weeks have about done me in and I'm so excited to see the weekend, I can't even stand it.   I'm a little brain-dead these days, so I thought we'd do a fun Five on Friday of random thoughts and things that I'm enjoying lately.  Ready?? 1.  Deep South Details.  I feel like I've mentioned these gals before, but if so blame on menopausal forgetfulness!  I found this podcast last fall and fell in love with these … [Read more...]

Spring Mantel and Some Easter Thoughts

I started this post yesterday, but life got in the way so here we are today!  And it's high time I share my spring mantel with you.  You got a sneak peek of it when I shared my DIY twig cross last week.  I've had this mantel in place for a couple of weeks now and love it!  But as you know... things are always subject to change around here. :) This time around I wanted a mix of metals and wood tones,  and just an overall fresh feeling.  I … [Read more...]

This ‘n That Monday

Hey there!  I hope your week is off to a great start!  I'm still trying to figure out where the weekend went... I spent some time relaxing, watching TV and reading, whipped up a couple of chalkboard projects for the booth, and enjoyed a FUN girls' night out/sleep over with some dear old friends.  I intended to spend time shredding paperwork in my home office, but that seemed like no fun... and didn't get done. :) And this morning it's rainy … [Read more...]

My Lenten Discipline for 2016

Lent is upon us once again -- early this year!  And I find it somehow appropriate that this morning dawned our coldest of the year.  A few stray snowflakes are still blowing about and I'm lingering in front of the fire with coffee and my Lent Devotional from She Reads Truth. I used to dread Lent in my younger days... it was depressing and meant giving up something for 47 long days.   Somewhere along the way of spiritual growth and maturing … [Read more...]

In Case You Missed It: January

Well, a few days got away from me and here we are into February!  Yikes!  If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I broke away for a girls' weekend at the beach and got the bonus fun of celebrating a dear old friend's 50th birthday at the same time.  It was a good time and now it's back to cold/rainy/busy days here at home. :) I've got a list of posts for y'all coming in the next few weeks, but thought I'd flash back to January today, just … [Read more...]
