The weekend is here, we made it! Coming off of a long weekend in Chattanooga and a short three day work week, I am heading off to Florida this weekend and can’t wait for some fun in the sun and relaxation. It’s been a busy start to the year around here – January is always a bit crazy work-wise for both myself and Ryan, and on top of that we’ve had a lot going on from Jackson’s birthday to weekend trips and being slightly over committed when we are here. I have not been doing as good of a job at setting those boundaries as I had hoped this year! But since I have been a little quite on here I thought I would share a little update on what we’ve been up to around here. Read More
I can’t believe we celebrated Jackson turning two this past weekend. It’s been such an experience to watch him grow, develop and come into his own personality. I definitely don’t want to rush it, but I can’t wait to see what this year brings us with him. Read More
And just like that it’s 2018. I like to use the first week of each new year to reflect on the previous twelve months and set goals and intentions for the year ahead. The last couple of days I’ve spent focusing on what went well in 2017 and where I can make changes to make 2018 an even better year. I know this is a little backwards as most people use the week leading up to the new year to do this, but I like finishing the year out strong and without expectations. Read More
How is it already Thanksgiving?! I know I sound like a broken record, but this year has really flown by. I cannot believe we’re in the throws of holiday season, it feels like we were just trick or treating last weekend. It really hit me that the holidays are here when we did our annual pictures with Santa last weekend. That’s another story for another post…lets just say it went about as smooth as last year…photo above is from last year’s session.
This is definitely my favorite time of year though! I love decorating our house for the holidays, seeing family and friends, and getting all dressed up for the holiday celebrations. Since it’s been a little while I thought I would do a little update on what’s been going on with our family before we are full swing into all of the holiday planning, parties and craziness. Hope you enjoy! Read More
Right now I am supposed to be on my way to the airport and heading to Siesta Key for a much-needed girls weekend. A couple of my closest girlfriends and I take a long weekend each year and head somewhere to relax, sip fun cocktails and catch up. Unfortunately, Hurricane Irma had other plans for us though, and instead we’ll all be staying home this weekend. Read More
I can’t believe summer is quickly coming to an end. I had high hopes for this season, and it definitely did not disappoint. I know I’ve been a little slack on posting here…the late nights and long weekends have gotten the best of me.
Rather than write up everything we’ve been up to, I thought I would share our summer so far through pictures. I hope you enjoy! Read More
I hope everyone had a great 4th of July! I don’t know about you, but I love these abbreviated work weeks – they’re even better when the day off is midweek – here’s to hoping these next few days fly by. Read More
