What I Learned This Month: June

Hi friends! I'm enjoying some out-of-town time with the hubs and some dear friends this week, celebrating the 4th. It's HOT HOT HOT, but we're immersing ourselves in a spring-fed "creek"... if you follow me on Instagram you know of what I speak! I wasn't sure I'd be able to pull this post together, as I wasn't particularly intentional about taking note of things I learned last month. But after mulling it over, some things swam to the … [Read more...]

Five on Friday

Happy Friday, everyone! We had such a great week at Legacy summer camp -- lots of great crafts and activities built around our favorite books. We'll do this theme again, as everyone (kids and teachers!) seemed to LOVE it! We're keeping it light for Five on Friday this week -- just some fun things that have come on my radar in the past week! I'm in need of a new travel cosmetics case, now that I'm at the age of numerous skin care/hair … [Read more...]

Five on Friday

Happy First (Official) Day of Summer! Seems only appropriate that it would fall on a Friday, right? I see lots of late night swimming, grilling, and lightning bug catching for many of you this evening. :) I, personally, am celebrating that I managed to get three posts up this week! Let's hope it's a trend... Today I'm resurrecting the Five on Friday posts - a random collection of things that have caught my attention over the past week. … [Read more...]

Hello, Summer!

Once again, I didn't mean to be gone so long! The end of the school year got totally away from me, which led to me being brain-dead for a couple of weeks. Then my site needed some server updates so here we are -- halfway through June and a month into my summer "break." So far, it feels a little like a break, but I'm still working every day. The administrative part of running the school and Board of Directors is never ending, actually. … [Read more...]

What I Learned This Month… March

I seem to have lost the month of March somewhere... anybody else?? We are finally enjoying some spring-like weather here in ATL (though today will be chilly and cloudy), and the days upon days of rain are hopefully behind us! Since I last posted a lot has gone on -- some good, some not so good, but isn't that the way? We find ourselves once again in a season of change - some good, some not so good. But we persevere and try to be present and … [Read more...]

Currently… January 2019

Hello? Is this thing on? :) I had no intention of being away so long... but life happened and so here we are. I've been itching to dust off this space for a while, but was fearful the words wouldn't come. But wouldn't you know that with January came some thoughts and ideas. January is "that month" for me -- a cozy time of reflection and dreaming, resting and re-energizing. There's been a lot of life lived in the last year. I'm quite sure … [Read more...]

Checking In!

Greetings, friends!  The school year is finished, my house is under contract, and I find myself in this very strange "in between" place.   This home-selling thing is not for the faint of heart.  We still have to get through the due diligence period (we're close!), so I'm working on that, as well as continuing to pack and think through what is coming with us.  Getting the house ready to list was a whirlwind and I have discovered I'm not sure where … [Read more...]

Five on Friday: Turning 50

Hi there, friends!  I had no intention of being gone so long!  But I was hijacked by a surprise 50th birthday celebration AND getaway for several days and have been digging out from under ever since. :)  I've had my nose to the grindstone for the last several months and have been reluctant to get away -- I didn't want to spend the money OR take the time away from what's been all-consuming.  But apparently my husband and BFF had other ideas.  … [Read more...]

Monday Fun Day

Well THAT weekend went by in hurry!  While I made a bit more progress around the house, I was mostly working and getting ready for Legacy Benefit Dinner we have coming up on Friday.  My laundry room photos are almost ready to share so look for those later this week (check out the "befores" here)! Today I wanted to share something soooo fun that I came across over the weekend!  Lonny Magazine posted a fun photo slide show of the worst decor … [Read more...]

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...]
