Project Sneak Peek: Laundry Room Refresh

Hi there!  I hope you're enjoying your week so far.  It's been nice to be out of school so I can tackle some of these refresh projects we need to do to get the house ready to sell.  Ever wonder why we wait until we're ready to sell to get these things done??? Yesterday I jump-started the laundry room refresh that has been loooonnnnggg overdue.  If you follow me on Instagram you know I purged the cabinets and cleaned it up a couple of weekends … [Read more...]

Home Goals 2017 (Part 1)

Greetings, friends!  Thanks so much for your kinds words of encouragement on my personal goals post last week.  I'm always a little skiddish about putting them out there, but -- accountability, folks!  The last couple of weeks got busy with prepping for and opening registration for next school year (can you believe it??). I spent MLK Day purging kitchen cabinets and my cookbooks -- does anybody hold onto cookbooks anymore?  While I only … [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...]

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...]

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...]

Merry Christmas, Friends!

I had every intention of posting all kinds of things Christmas and holiday this month, but life and Legacy got in the way.  As it is, I am skidding into this weekend with my "to do's" barely finished but determined to slow it down and soak in the real reason for the season with my peeps.  So since I shortchanged you on Christmas posts, I decided to pop in today with heartfelt Christmas wishes and some snapshots of Christmas around my … [Read more...]

Weekend Project: Get Holiday-Ready

I don't usually post on Saturdays, but I thought this would be helpful for the onset of the holiday week.  I feel like we've either been out-of-town or hosting guests the last several weekends (not entirely true but it feels that way!).  And this year, I managed to be a bit proactive as far as getting my home ready for the holidays. #wondersnevercease  So with Thanksgiving looming less than a week away, I thought I share a few quick things I did … [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...]

A Front Porch Peek!

Hi friends...  I've been under the weather this week (ugh -- who has time for that??) so I'm behind on my front porch progress, of course.  But I've done enough that I thought I'd share a peek at it today after all. We've had sunny warm weather so at least it's been pleasant while I'm out there, even if it doesn't feel particularly fall-like.  I think the kiddos will be trick or treating in shorts this weekend! Remember that I spray … [Read more...]
