Checking In!

Greetings, friends!  The school year is finished, my house is under contract, and I find myself in this very strange "in between" place.   This home-selling thing is not for the faint of heart.  We still have to get through the due diligence period (we're close!), so I'm working on that, as well as continuing to pack and think through what is coming with us.  Getting the house ready to list was a whirlwind and I have discovered I'm not sure where … [Read more...]

Life Lately…

Hello, friends!  It's so hard to believe that as I type this, we're closing out our school year AND the month of May.  The last several weeks have had me spinning like a top and I just now have bit of a breather to come say hello to all of you. Last weekend we put the For Sale sign in the front yard.  And leading up to that was an unbelievable flurry of painting, purging, and packing.  Nineteen years in a home will do that to you...  It was … [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...]

Personal Goals for 2017: Let’s Do This!

Greetings, friends!  Anyone else limping back into reality last week??  I had a college kiddo still home until yesterday so even though I'm back at work, I'm having a hard time finding routine.  Oh well, it will come, I'm sure! I spent some time over the break thinking about my personal goals for the coming year.  It's going to be another year of big changes so any hopes of status quo or coasting have gone out the window.   While I could … [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...]

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...]

Christmas Prep is Underway…

Ok, so yes -- I'm a first-things-first kinda gal, but how can I pass up a coupon code for Christmas cards??  So I seized my moment... and may have strong-armed the college kid to get the tree put up. :)  But I promise... no decorating... for now. :)  Enjoy the day! Card with envelo Save … [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...]
