How You Can Help

Good Monday morning, friends!  What a difference a week makes -- this time last week we were under a tropical storm warning and the ATL was pretty much shut down.  While there were tons of power outages here, we were spared.  Things are pretty much back to normal around here, but not so for our friends in Texas and Florida. I was so blessed last week as we wrapped up our Diaper Drive at Legacy.  My sweet families answered the call and we … [Read more...]

This ‘n That Tuesday

Hello, dear friends and Happy September!?! Once again, I did not intend to be gone for a while, but -- WHEW!  We've got our school year at Legacy up and running and life just got away from me for a bit there. :)  And all of a sudden, here we are -- September! I'm clinging to summer still -- I feel like I didn't really have a "summer" with all the hoopla of listing/selling/moving/trying to settle/ramping up for a new school year.  It was just … [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...]

Spread the Christmas Cheer (while Shopping!)

Hi friends!  I hope you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones and are slowly emerging from your turkey coma. :)  We were on the go the latter part of the week, sprinting from my mother-in-law's in south Georgia to my sister-in-law's in Tennessee and I confess I'm paying the price for the hectic schedule.  My tree is up but not decorated, I have a pile of mail/bills/packages to sort through, my bathrooms are dirty, and the … [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...]

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...]

Project Sneak Peeks and a Note About Legacy

Good Thursday to you, friends!  Popping back in today with a couple of painting projects I've been working on this week.  The weather has been perfect to get a few things done so that's been my focus.  But first, I wanted to share a note about Legacy with you. As I've been writing that story out, it's been very healing for me and helpful in terms of processing what happened.  If you've been following along, you might already realize that … [Read more...]

In Case You Missed It {July and August}

Well, here we are!  The last day of August... how did that happen??  This was a summer of sporadic posting, some story-telling, and a few technical issues here on the blog that I'm still trying to figure out.  May be time to call in a professional! #ugh Today I'm going to recap my posts from July and August... just in case you missed something! I shared my favorite Fourth of July projects and recipes from years past, along with this … [Read more...]
