Clam Linguine and Caprese Salad-Yum!

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

IMG_7633

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 [...]

Found at sea.

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 [...]

Sometimes, when I am doing something with my kids, husband, family, or friends…a huge overwhelming feeling just sort of hits me out of nowhere.  One of those special, cherished moments where the world feels just right and you know you are exactly where you are supposed to be.  I am making a memory.  This happened [...]

We had such a fun day. It was the birthday of one of my dear friends, so we headed over to Birkdale Village for lunch at Zoe’s….kids in tow.  B, Gigi, and I went to Nothing Bundt Cakes to get the birthday girl a cake. Y’all, this place is ridiculously amazing. I cannot believe how [...]

D had two work trips this month. He is also advancing his degree (so proud of him!!!) and attends class two nights a week after work.  And let me tell y’all…that makes for one heck of a long day with the kids.  We decided we needed a little refresher and escaped to Savannah for a [...]

A Distressed Wine Cabinet: Everything needs a little pop of gold.

A Distressed Wine Cabinet: Everything needs a little pop of gold.

I found the best wine cabinet at ReStore in Cornelius. A solid piece of furniture, all it needed was a facelift. Of course, I cannot find the before picture. I am adding photo organization to my “to do” list. Anyway, the old finish was a stain that had a lot of red undertones to it. [...]
