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...]

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...]

This ‘n That Holiday Monday

Happy Monday and Happy Thanksgiving week!  I'm immersed in Legacy to-dos today and a bit of food prep, but over the weekend, I had so many random holiday ideas and thoughts in my mind, I thought I'd share some with you today.  Maybe something will strike a chord with you?? I always forget that H&M has home decor items, but this inexpensive ($5.99!!) Christmas pillow cover totally caught my eye... Merry and Bright pillow cover  There's … [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...]

This ‘n That Wednesday

Howdy!  I hope you all had great Fourth of July weekend!  I did a little bit of Legacy work and a whole lotta relaxing poolside with the hubs.  I even managed to sleep in a bit!  #holidayweekendforthewin Today I thought I'd share a little of this 'n that from the last several days.  First of all, my BFF, my Girl, and I took in Emily Giffin's launch party for her new book First Comes Love.  I'm a huge fan of her stories and she is so funny and … [Read more...]
