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 [...]

Once summer hits, I can’t get enough seafood. I love clam linguine and usually use an easy recipe that calls for the canned kind of clams. I really wanted to try making them fresh and found a recipe from Anne Burrell (she’s on Food Network.) I was SO tasty and I was shocked at how [...]

After vacationing in the same spot for a long enough time, you develop your favorites.  I am going to share our family’s favorite spots in Hilton Head, SC.  If you are familiar with the island and have anything you love, please let me know!  We are always looking for new things to do when we [...]

Our Charming Hilton Head Vacation

Our Charming Hilton Head Vacation

Today, I finally sat and had a moment to edit our vacation photos.   I took 1,056 pictures.  That’s insane…even for me.  But, it was worth it.  I caught some very beautiful moments for our family. Little Gigi was so uncertain about the beach at first.  The sand bothered her and she cried immediately.  We let her go [...]

Hilton Head is the ideal vacation spot for me. I like to explore nature…but then I want to go home and swim in the pool, drink wine, and eat oysters. We’ve gotten our taste of both nature and glamour today. It’s our last day here, so we wanted to make it extra special. We spent [...]

I got a very sweet email the other day. A complete stranger told me they missed my blogging and hoped I’d start doing it again regularly. It made me feel so nice, but it also made me feel a little sad that I couldn’t keep up with everything. The reality is that I love to [...]
