SARAS☀️TA, FL

SARAS☀️TA, FL

Since our first full day in Florida was going to be 'chilly' in the 70's, we decided to check out Sarasota for the day.  My in-laws have been in Florida for almost 2 months now, so they had some favorite spots dialed in and took us to a waterfront park that stole the day. Gorgeous old [...]

CHARLESTON, SC

CHARLESTON, SC

Sweet Alma Mater, Charleston.  We just can't say enough nice things about you, your charm at every turn, and how your Southern hospitality just melt our hearts every time we come back to you.  Praise the Lord, most of our College besties stayed in Charleston after we graduated so we have an easy excuse to [...]

THANKSGIVING ROCKS

THANKSGIVING ROCKS

I'll say it again; Thanksgiving rocks.  I could not be more thankful for my family and all the laughter, joy...and more laughter this holiday brings.  The women and men in our lives are some special people.  My sister's dry, sharp witty sense of humor, my mom a.k.a. Saint Della always there to give and serve, [...]

CABO, MEXICO 💃

CABO, MEXICO 💃

So Adam and I booked a super last minute, spontaneous trip to Cabo, Mexico with the help of those crazy awesome grandparents I have mentioned before.  The kiddos are not coming with us on this trip, so it is all about relaxing and catching some sun and surf before the hubs goes back to being [...]

H💙ME

With our new house, I wanted to create a clean and simple island vibe for my boy's rooms.  Pillows, Lamps, and Wooden Side Tables are from Homegoods and TJMaxx . Our mail living area makes me smile every day.  I love entertaining in our kitchen, and could hang out in our half bath thanks to some [...]
