We spent last week split between visiting Jeff’s family in Raleigh and sneaking in some R&R at Myrtle Beach. It was nice to get away from the packing and to spend some time on the beach, by the pool, and playing board games with the boys.  I always look forward to getting home, though. There is no denying that I’m a … Read More

Hey guys!  June is officially here, and while usually it’s already sweltering hot at this time of year, we’ve had a really long and mild Spring.  I don’t want to jinx it or anything, and I certainly don’t want to rush Summer along, but this week my kiddos will wrap up their school years, and…

Timing is an interesting thing. If you have read my blog for a while, you may remember that we put our house on the market almost exactly three years ago.  We had seen a local farm that was for sale and we were hot to buy it!  We got our house ready and listed it with high hopes of selling … Read More

On May 8, 2017 By

Good Monday morning!  We survived a crazy weekend of soccer and the school play, and I am one proud mama.  My girl nailed it as Tweedle Dee.  I think the most rewarding thing as a mother is watching that glow your child gets when they are doing something they love.  Soccer for Sawyer, creative arts…
