Vintage Soda Crates Storage, Beach Music, and a Scare

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.  […]

Chandelier Flowers and Pretty Wine

Chandelier Flowers and Pretty Wine

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 […]

Ahoy! A Coastal Bathroom DIY

Ahoy! A Coastal Bathroom DIY

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 […]

Warm days, Mason Jars, and Slip and Slides

Warm days, Mason Jars, and Slip and Slides

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 […]

Clam Linguine and Caprese Salad-Yum!

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 […]

My Favorite Spots in Hilton Head

My Favorite Spots in Hilton Head

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 […]

Gators, wine, and salty air

Gators, wine, and salty air

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.

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 […]

Bubble Fun

Bubble Fun

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 […]
