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...]

Holiday Bits and Pieces

Greetings, friends!  I hope you're enjoying this Christmas week... it is always one of my favorite times.  The hub bub has died down and I can regroup, rest up, watch football and get organized for the new year.  How about you?  I need it more this year than ever. 2016 just about plowed me under -- so. much. happening.   And while I make a point of choosing joy on a regular basis -- and there was plenty of that! -- there have also been some … [Read more...]

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...]
