First Grade

I wonder what you’re doing right now,
If everyone is treating you kind.
I hope there’s a special person,
A nice friend that you can find.

I wonder if the teacher knows
Just how special you are to me.
And if the brightness of your heart
Is something she can see.

I wonder if you are thinking about me,
And if you need a hug.
I already miss the sound of your voice
and how you give my leg a tug.

I wonder if you could possibly understand
How hard it is for me to let you grow.
On this day know that my heart breaks,
For this is the first step in letting my baby go.


My New Iphone, Instagram, and My Life

I finally broke down and got a new iphone. I have been living with the cracked glass long enough. I love a new beginning! So my newest addiction is Instagram. But… In my defense, this isnt just another waste of my time, because… Im going to use it as a sort of photo diary of my life and my children (see resolution #1). I have great intentions of actually printing these and not just letting them live in my phone.

My 15 year old being silly!

Spend the night company.

Cool glasses Sam made at Bible School.

We brought our golf carts out to shoot the wedding Saturday. The girls were great sports about the new locations we wanted to try.

Our turn to host supper club. Sadies cousin was visiting from England, so we had to treat her to a little southern fare…Fried pork chops, fried green tomatoes, fried okra, fried corn, butter beans, corn bread, pear salad, and Pioneer Woman’s Blackberry Cobbler with Ice Cream. Our friends know to wear their fat pants when they come to our house . The blackberries and Blue Willow were provided by my grandmother.

Sam entertained the kids with the sparlklers I brought from Saturdays wedding. He has learned to be excited about the favors.

He spent the day with me at work on Tuesday. FYI his shirt was wet from the supersoakers at BIble School.

He made a prayer journal at bible school, and while he was at the studio with me I told him he should write in his prayer journal, this is what he came up with all on his own.

My favorite flower.

And the highlight of my week was spending yesterday with my favorite designers Ashley & Amanda shooting homes for her new site. You all know how I love design.



You know I love Lonny, and now their newest venture is TradHome. Its pretty Awesome! And whats better than a brand new magazine…A new online magazine thats FREE. Featured in the issue, is another ¬†of my favorites, Ms. Erika Powell, of Urban Grace, from Santa Rosa Beach, sister of “Fly through Our Window” Blogger Extraordinaire, Darby. (Talent just runs in families doesn’t it!)


Vintage Stamps

I ran across this site the other day and thought the idea was so awesome. How beautiful for wedding invitations or a special letter.


Cupcake Love

Valentines Day is just around the corner and I wanted to suggest a sweet gift for your sweetie. My good friend Evan G. Cooper has the most wonderful business, Cooper Cupcakes. They are Yummy.! I especially love Red Velvet and Peanut Butter Fudge.
