Five on Friday: Valentine’s Day Edition

Whew, TGIF!  With Valentine's Day right around the corner, it seemed only fitting to have today's Five on Friday be all about the Valentine, right?  I'm not one for decorating for this day, but I have a few fun things to share that should make your day extra special! 1.  This playing card wreath... I love this idea!!  And just think, it's the perfect project if you have a deck that's missing a few cards. :) Refresh Living 2.  This sweet love … [Read more...]

What’s Saving My Life Right Now…

Ah, Monday, Monday, y'all.  Are you feeling the post-Super Bowl blues today?  I've always wished they would start the game at 3pm instead 6-something... after all, Sunday is a school night!  Anyhoo, we had a super busy and kind of "off" weekend.  And as I was catching up on some blog reading yesterday afternoon I was seeing several "What's Saving My Life Right Now" posts.  Anne Bogel of Modern Mrs. Darcy blog started doing this and now has a … [Read more...]

HGTV Dream Home 2017 {Eye Candy}

Happy Monday, friends!  I hope you had a great weekend.  I had a pretty low-key one just taking care of Legacy loose ends and plodding through my purging.  I was battling a low blood pressure so I didn't get TONS done, but progress is progress, right? Today I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite elements from this year's HGTV Dream Home.  This year they brought Brian Patrick Flynn on board and the design felt very different … [Read more...]

Five on Friday: 2016 Favorites Edition

TGIF, friends!  It's been a challenge getting back into the swing this week and now SNOW is on the way!  Of course, here in ATL, it could end up being nothing, but I hit the grocery store yesterday afternoon for a few staples (and extras!) yesterday, just in case.  Anyhoo, I know we're six days into 2017 now, but I thought for our first Five on Friday for the year it would be fun to share my favorites from 2016... 1.  Favorite project. 2016 … [Read more...]

Nordstrom Home Sale Picks (Under $50)

Happy New Year and Happy Monday, friends!  I hope you had a festive and fun New Years, even if it involved yoga pants and cups of tea.  I managed to make it til midnight and then spent all day on the couch yesterday.  It was a cold and rainy day, perfect for enjoying the fire in comfort. :) Today is the last day of the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale, and so I felt I'd be remiss if I didn't share some of the great deals they've got for the … [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...]

In Case You Missed It (September & October)

I cannot believe it's already November!  It seems like time just speeds up from year to year, doesn't it?  Well, at least I got back on a semi-regular posting schedule. :)  So just in case you've missed something from the last couple of months... I caught you up on my life lately back in September -- which was a whole lotta Legacy and getting my kiddos off and running on new adventures. You wouldn't believe how much those sweet peas in … [Read more...]

Five on Friday: Fall Fashion Edition

TGIF!  Whew, another week down and it was a good one.  Earlier this week I was seriously under the weather and to pass the time I prowled around on Pinterest for some fun fall outfits.  It's been so warm here I have yet to wear a sweater or boots!  But I found some fun outfits I would totally wear and thought I'd share them with you for today's Five on Friday ... just in case you need a little inspiration for your own wardrobe! 1.  Chambray, … [Read more...]
