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: 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...]

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...]

Book Review: Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World

I had hoped to get this review up a week ago, but at last here it is... I have lingered in this book.  I posted this photo a few weeks back when I was first digging into the reading and it got quite the reaction on Facebook.  Apparently there are many of us parents struggling with the sense of entitlement that seems to reign in our current culture. You all know my kids are older -- millenials, most of them.  And that word "entitlement" is … [Read more...]

This ‘n That Monday

Happy Cyber Monday, friends!  Have you got your holiday shopping on yet?  I have a few things I'll be ordering today, but for the most part I try to shop all year so the financial hit isn't so hard this time of year. :)  The blogosphere is loaded with Gift Guides the past few days, and though I was tempted to put one together myself, I thought I'd just share a little randomness with you today. All 7 of us were together (briefly!) on … [Read more...]

This ‘n That Monday

Hi friends... Well, I checked out again for a bit, but I'm back!  I spent 10 days in Texas with my family at the beginning of October, taking in some Texas Aggie football and then trekking to Amarillo to celebrate my dad's 80th birthday.  It was such sweet family time...   And so then, when I got back, I had to hit the ground running for Legacy (more on that this week).  And so while I intended to post last week, life got in … [Read more...]

What I’m Reading, Loving, and Working On

Greetings, dear friends!!  I didn't intend to be gone so long, but I'm happy to be back.  I have a story to tell about my time away, but I'll save that for another day.    Right now my summer is in full swing and I've been relishing the down time after a crazy few months.    Right now I've got Wimbeldon on the TV and lots of sleeping young people in the house... life is good. I thought I'd share what I'm reading, loving and working on today... … [Read more...]
