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...]

Five on Friday: Palm Print Fun

TGIF!!  What a tragic week in the news, y'all.  My heart just aches for the Orlando community -- first the Pulse shootings and then the Graves family tragedy at Disney.  What has stood out to me is the reactions... sadly lacking in grace and compassion.  I just keep praying for our country and the state of our hearts, y'all.  Will you join me? In other news, it's been a week of meetings, phone calls, and other Legacy business -- so fun to see … [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...]

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...]

Five on Friday

T.G.I.F.  And I MEAN that!  I'm ready to wind down this week, but not quite sure I'm ready to say goodbye to April!  #yikes  Thanks for sharing your thoughts on yesterday's porch plans post... I'm ready to get rocking on that bad boy. Today's Five on Friday is another dose of randomness but all good stuff... 1.  What Should I Read Next podcast.  Yes, another podcast, but it's another good one!  Anne Bogel from the blog The Modern … [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...]

Five on Friday: Random Thoughts

T.G.I.F.  Y'all.  The past few weeks have about done me in and I'm so excited to see the weekend, I can't even stand it.   I'm a little brain-dead these days, so I thought we'd do a fun Five on Friday of random thoughts and things that I'm enjoying lately.  Ready?? 1.  Deep South Details.  I feel like I've mentioned these gals before, but if so blame on menopausal forgetfulness!  I found this podcast last fall and fell in love with these … [Read more...]

Spring Mantel and Some Easter Thoughts

I started this post yesterday, but life got in the way so here we are today!  And it's high time I share my spring mantel with you.  You got a sneak peek of it when I shared my DIY twig cross last week.  I've had this mantel in place for a couple of weeks now and love it!  But as you know... things are always subject to change around here. :) This time around I wanted a mix of metals and wood tones,  and just an overall fresh feeling.  I … [Read more...]

Home Goals 2016

Better late than never, y'all!  I've been working on these gradually over the last several weeks and it's finally time to share.   I call them my "goals" because inevitably something more urgent will pop up and consume time and resources to addresses. Last year the majority of my home goals went untouched due to Legacy, so some of these will ring a bell.  But I do think it's worth it to think through what I'd like to update and accomplish … [Read more...]
