I wrote a little about this topic in a previous post. But after being freshly home from a 7 day trip to Colorado, I thought I'd talk a little more about it. With my family living in Mississippi, which is a 12 hour drive from us, our kids have traveled a decent amount. They both [...]
I always joke with my husband that I was the first to ask him out. We met in college and I immediately fell hard for him and while waiting for him to finally tell me his feelings, I worked up the guts up to ask him to a service sorority formal (where the girls ask the guys). After all of that work, it ended up being canceled due to a snow storm. I think he knew by then that I was into him and he asked me out on a date.
Fast forward 11ish years and 3 kids later, we still love to date each other. I’ve learned that it doesn’t always have to be planned out or anything fancy, our main goal is to reconnect and come back together.

The family and I staycationed last week, in order to tackle building a new fence. We figured the kids would benefit from a place where I could contain them or send them when they are a little too chaotic. My husband headed up the fence building, recruited his buddies to help and I did my [...]

Summer is here, and I’m not going to lie, I basically live my life for it. Give me all the hot days in the sunshine over snow and freezing cold any day. That probably comes from the many, many hours I lived in a pool growing up. When I was little I was all [...]
One of my favorite trends is gingham. I'm not sure if it's the Southern girl in me or not, but I just find it super classy, and I love all the ways people are mixing it up. I'm seeing gingham skirts with graphic tees, gingham tanks and distressed jeans, and classy gingham high waisted shorts [...]
