Longing for Sweet Summer Days

While I was going through my photos today, I stumbled across an album from summer.  We have been trapped inside with the melting snow and these pictures were a welcome sight.  Since I got so off track with blogging last summer, I figured I’d show them now! The kids set up a lemonade stand.  How [...]

My Life Changing Moment with Marie Kondo

My Life Changing Moment with Marie Kondo

Ok…I don’t know where to start. For the past few months, I have been completely wrapped up in applying the Marie Kondo method to my house. My ENTIRE house. It has changed me in ways I didn’t even fathom were possible. This is my first post talking about my “Kondo” experience…because there is a lot [...]

That’s right! We’ve got another little squirt on the way! David and I are so excited, and G kind of gets it, but B….he is just over the moon. It’s all he can talk about. He is hoping for a brother (because “you can tackle a brother”….um, yikes!) but says he’d be happy with another [...]

Gigi loves cupcakes. Her eyes light up when she sees one and she talks about them constantly. Naturally, we decided to use “cupcakes” as the theme for her 2nd birthday party. And just because I kept falling in love with every Lilly themed straw and cupcake topper I saw, I decided to decorate with Lilly [...]

Oh my goodness. I can finally stop a moment and take a breath. Late this summer, monogram sales boomed (I am so very thankful) and I haven’t had a second to take a break and share my very favorite project with you all. It has been number one on my things I am excited to [...]

Everyone has a moment, right in the middle of a crazy, busy day, when their child stops them in their tracks and forces them to drink life in. This was mine.  I walked outside to this image and ran to grab my camera.  Luckily he was in the exact same spot and I caught the [...]

What a week this has been! We had such a fun weekend.  We spent Saturday at our friends’ annual pool party and on Sunday went to see “Band of Oz” playing at Davidson’s Concert on the Green.  It was HOT.  Like the intolerable kind of hot.  But our kids danced and we had quality family time, so it was all worth it.  [...]

On Saturday mornings, we have been running up to the Farmer’s Market in Davidson. If you have not been, you definitely need to try it out. I love to get flowers from there-they’re a great price and absolutely gorgeous. They stay fresh all week (they start to wilt just in time for me to get [...]

There comes a time that you have to say to yourself, “finish that project already!” For me, that time was last week. That project was decorating the kids’ bathroom. And yes, friends, it is DONE. DONE. DONE.  I can’t say it enough times. So the room started out looking like this. I can’t find any [...]

We’re settling into summer mode quite well over here.  The past week has been so flipping hot that we have been going through water bottles like crazy.  I finally went out and bought another water dispenser (I broke my others.)  I found it at Target….isn’t it adorable?  With the chalkboard label and bulky size, it was [...]
