what we ask.

Happy July, y’all! While the summer always flies by for me, I am seriously wishing for time to slow down as we prepare for the BIG (and wonderful, albeit scary) life change that is to come in September. How are we only two months away from meeting our little girl?! I am nervous and amazed … Continue reading

to my baby girl.

I wish there were words to adequately kick off this blog post, I really do… because typically, you want your writing to start off with a calm lead-up, a gentle opening that carries your beloved readers easily into the crux of what you want to say. But here, in this moment: WE ARE HAVING A … Continue reading

more than perfect.

Okay friends, let’s be real: who is already burnt out on New Year’s resolutions? It amazes me just how quickly the excitement of a new year can wear off, but I have to say that I’ve been pleasantly surprised this time around at how much the refreshing feeling of a new year has stuck with … Continue reading

o come, all ye faithful.

Happy Cyber Monday, friends! Who is finding the best deals? Aside from the excitement that comes with finding the perfect gift for someone (or, umm, myself), I LOVE this time of year: when Christmas trees carrying years of memories become the centerpiece of living rooms, string lights bring life to even the barest parts of … Continue reading

Does anyone else get that ughhh feeling in the pit of your stomach when August rolls around? I swear I have had it for as long as I can remember, always dreading the time when carefree summer days come to an end and it’s time to go back to reality. Even though these days I … Continue reading

I was about to start this post with, “how was everyone’s 4th of July?” when I realized that it’s been over a week since that happened, y’all. Where is the time going? And more importantly, where is the SUMMER going? Please don’t make me leave these long, warm days. Anyway, I’m finally recovering from a … Continue reading

our marriage turns one.

This is a really exciting day for me, y’all. I think back to one year ago, and in a day that was filled with nerves and anticipation and A LOT of preparation, it is a feeling of true joy that still sits with my soul as I think back on June 25, 2016. Today Jordan … Continue reading

in anxious times.

Friends, it is mid-May and the weather is warm and I just took advantage of Sonic Happy Hour, which is always a sign that summer is near. I love this time of year for so many reasons, mostly because it makes life feel so much more free and colorful. Even though this working girl no … Continue reading

a plea for more.

It wouldn’t be right if I didn’t kick this post off by saying: GO. HEELS. We are National Champions, y’all! Monday night was amazing in so many ways — I screamed my head off and freaked out and became way too emotionally invested in college basketball, but I do believe it comes with a territory … Continue reading

where we are.

So I was in conversation with a friend today and she made a comment about next week being March, and I had to do a double-take… can you believe that we’re already moving full steam ahead toward spring? (Of course, for those of us in the South it has felt like spring for a while … Continue reading
