…hello? Is this thing on?


Just a quick note to the online world…we are in fact, still alive.  When I realized that last week was not January, it dawned on me that I’ve neglected this blog like a bad date.  We’ve entered the busiest season ever of our life together and things like websites just got pushed to the side.  Here are some comings and goings…

  • Josh is back in school and will be finished in December.  It’s tough…especially for me since I thrive on quality time and we maybe see each other one night a week.  So far he’s made the highest marks in his classes and he’ll be interning locally in the fall.
  • Atlas weighs 70 pounds and he’s still a puppy.  His tail is lethal and has a bad habit of knocking my La Croix off the coffee table every. single. time.  Still, he’s the most adorable thing in the world and we take him with us nearly everywhere we go.
  • I’m now the sole coach of the Varsity Football Cheer Squad at my school.  Scary, intimidating, time consuming, and loads of fun.  We recently had tryouts and I wouldn’t wish that process on my worst enemy.
  • We’re 45 days away from summer vacation.  Holy cow.  We’ve got the requisite two weeks at Lake Burton planned for mid-July and we’ll be wedding hopping {again} for most of the summer.  Traveling is different once you’ve got a dog…
  • We’re planning our summer garden and praying that the rain won’t rot away our tomatoes like last year.  Josh wants to add in peppers, zucchini, spaghetti squash, and cucumbers.  Daddy has the requisite asparagus, lettuces, carrots, broccoli, and kale.  Obviously Pop takes the cake with sweet potatoes, tomatoes, corn, Irish potatoes, blueberries, peppers, squash, zucchini, and probably a half dozen other vegetables I’m forgetting to name.
  • My brother is getting married in May.
  • Josh’s brother is getting married two weeks later.

Hopefully we’ll both have time to breath before the school year ends and holiday begins.  I hope to document our garden for the summer as well as both family weddings.




The Old Try is Josh’s new favorite.

The Joyful Life Library is worth checking out.

These Kate Spade earrings are on sale.

Emily at Jones Design Company has the sweetest hand drawn Easter clipart available.

Josh just received these note cards and he’s obsessed.
