What Summer Time Is All About

Summer!  You are here now and I actually wouldn't have it any other way. Here in Louisiana it's pretty hot this summer, with highs in the upper 90's.  Mix that with the high humidity, bad mosquitos, and you've got yourself a Southern summer season. The summer season conjures up many thoughts, memories, and feelings for us…

What We’ve Been Up To

Man life is moving super fast!  Lately, we have been so busy as a family I really have had no time to share what we've been up to or working on. Maybe you don't really care what we've been up to because we've been gone too long.  Either way, I figured it was time for…

In the last couple of years, I've read many articles about trying to find a balance, a work/life/family balance.

What’s Going On

In the words of Marvin Gaye, you may be saying that very thing,"What's going on?" I've been missing since mid-January, and not just for the fun of it.  Around the same time as my last post, we found out we were expecting our second baby.  Definitely exciting news!  We even waited a little while to…

I Won a Liebster Award

Recently, I was checking my analytics and realized I got a few hits from a blog by the name of o'habitation.  Cori, o'habitation author, had awarded me the Liebster Award, which is a small blogging recognition award.  I couldn't believe that someone else had taken note of my work enough to acknowledge it.  The premise of…

What a great week it has been!  It started with a drive home from visiting with family in Georgia.  On the way in we stopped in Alabama at a few thrift stores and flea markets.  There were some good things to purchase, but I'm learning to live without some things.  So I didn't make a…
