Normally, I’m a warm weather girl. I love weather in the 70s, 80s, and 90s. That said, I was pretty excited when I woke up this morning to find the whole yard covered in frost! That first frost of the fall holds the promise of the coming holidays and winter days full of hot chocolate, warm meals, and – if we’re lucky – snow! I can’t wait to see if we get more snow now that we’ve moved one state farther north! 😉Continue Reading
What. A. Week. Ok, yes, I’ve been a little absent from the blog, but since I last wrote, we found a new place to live and packed the entire South Carolina house! I am so excited to get into the new house and get things settled…and the finish line is in sight! My new kitchen is going to be fantastic, so as soon as I can unpack, I should be back to posting my regular three posts per week. Can you tell that I’m a little eager to be settled into the new place?Continue Reading
TGIF!!! This week was crazy and full of big decisions – I’m so glad it is over! I’m not one for big decisions…I much prefer when things aren’t in turmoil because then, when I close my eyes, I don’t dream about house hunting and things of such nature. We’ve been somewhat in a state of limbo ever since John decided to do his web development program, so it’s nice to finally have some direction, but boy am I ready to be moved and settled in to our new home. We’ve done a little looking and have found a few nice options, but nothing that felt just right. Continue Reading
Tomorrow. Tomorrow it will officially be fall! I don’t know about you guys, but fall is up there in my favorite seasons. I’m kinda an outdoors-loving lady. Like to the point that it makes me a nerd.

To all of wonderful mothers out there (including my own!), thank you for everything you do for your children! Even if they do not understand all you do for them everyday, they do still feel the love you have for them. They may not talk about it much, or ever, but that kind of love and support helps them conquer even their worst days. It is what makes their smiles so big and bright and what holds them together when the going gets tough. You may not receive the thanks you hope for until they have children of their own, but you can realize it is hidden in every question they ask you and hug they give you! So, until you can hear it from your own kids, you can hear it from me: Thanks, Moms!
