LIFE LATELY

We're trying our best to settle into our new routine around here.  Now that I'm not teaching anymore, it seems like everything is different.  Not a bad different, just different.
Anne is now a 3rd grader...that's completely crazy to me.  Liam is always adding lots of excitement around here.  He is so much fun at this age.

Michael is still working hard to finish up this degree.  We can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel, which is a wonderful feeling!  I'm so proud of how hard he's worked/working.  Until the end though, we're all making things flow the best we can!
I'm making plans to update the blog soon, and getting excited about making this space a priority again.  Thanks for all of you readers that always encourage me to keep this space up...you guys are the best!

13 YEARS

I can't believe it's been 13 years since our wedding day.  Time really is such a strange thing.  To celebrate Michael planned for us to spend a night in Jackson at the historical, King Edward Hotel.  It was a quick trip, but definitely much needed.  Getting to ride in the car and talk was a treat.  Life can get so busy at times that a simple conversation with your spouse can be a challenge.  I know all you folks with children understand what I mean!
 
Then Michael hung a bunch of pictures for me and our living room feels so cozy now.  
I sure love that guy!

SUMMER FUN

I realized this week that summer is winding down and I haven't shared much about what we've been up to. We've really had such a wonderful time. I've gotten to spend a good bit of time with the kids and we've had as much fun as we can in our days together. Liam has grown so much. It's blowing my mind that he isn't a baby anymore... For real. 
Anne has been such a helper and always quick to share her fun ideas. 
To sum this summer up, we spent a week CAMPING at Grayton Beach in June. That's something I can check off my list of things to do. I definitely would love to do it again, just not during the heat of summer! 
We've also been selling lots of blueberry lemonade at the farmers market with the Edward's!
And this month I've been teaching a sewing class...and it's been so fun to see people getting excited about making things! We're having the best time!
And we are gonna pack a few more things in these last couple of weeks before school starts!! Next week we're planning a trip to the watermark and a shopping day with Anne!

HAPPY FOURTH

We spent our weekend mostly relaxing, which was obviously much needed.  We cooked out and watched the fireworks from Pinehurst Park Friday night with friends.  The kids had such a great time!  Firework night in the park will forever remind me of the July 4th scene in The Sandlot.  It's kind of magical.
Thanks for this photo Brooke!

A storm rolled in on Saturday and it felt impossible to get out of the house.  So I finished up watching the last season of Hart of Dixie and then moved right along to Gilmore Girls.  It was divine.
I'm thankful for a rainy weekend watching too much TV and getting in lots of snuggles with my sweet family!

LONG TIME NO BLOG

I didn't mean to not blog for so long...it's funny how the more time that passed the harder it was to make this post happen.  So many things have been changing around here and to be honest there has been very little down time.  I have officially changed careers and am now working at Southern Antiques.  One of the perks is that it's only a block from our loft and full of beautiful things!  

It's such a fun environment and I get to see lots of faces everyday!
Hopefully I will be better at blogging as I get settled into our new routine.  I definitely miss sharing our life in this space.
