If you’re at all familiar with south Georgia, you’re probably wondering why we added Jesup to our vacation. It’s an old railroad town, a blip on the map between Atlanta and the Atlantic… Continue reading
We’ve spent the last few weeks tending to home improvements – Strike that. Chuck has been doing a lot of home improvements lately and I’m having a great time seeing the results. He… Continue reading
Meet Jenni, my hair colorist. She is the charming young woman who keeps the gray away and happens to be in the third trimester of her first pregnancy. She is already beautiful, so… Continue reading
We’ve been without a headboard since moving into this house nearly three years ago because we put the log bed in Jackson’s room. (Chuck built the log bed for us in 1999 and… Continue reading
We drove through the national park yesterday to see what winter did to the mountains. Beauty! Icy! Cold! Pictures are behind the cut. Enjoy.
As I ignore “Cheater, cheater, pumpkin eater!” and other exclamations blowing my way from the boys’ bedrooms, I offer another batch of photos from Charleston. Just in case I didn’t know I was… Continue reading
Karin and I had a wonderful time on the coast of South Carolina, and in lieu of trying to describe everything with words, I’ll talk in pictures.
To be brief: – Last night’s Maundy Thursday service was profound for us. Having never recognized the Last Supper as it originally occurred, having never seen a church’s chancel stripped of all its… Continue reading
I won’t completely out myself and tell you the specific areas in which I’m procrastinating, but I will admit that I’m having a hard time doing some things I really need to do.… Continue reading
This video is old news for all the Chattanooga people, but not for the rest of you. WOW. It’s so well done! There is something to be said for quality. At first, I… Continue reading
I was given my birthday gift last week when I stumbled upon it (oops!) so yesterday was all about the cards. Many of you sent sweet cards that had me in stitches or… Continue reading

It’s going to be a super duper weekend for a number of reasons – the first being that it’s Girls Weekend. Susan and Lesli (with Henry) will be here tonight. (The estrogen-testosterone balance… Continue reading
One of my favorite features of the new-to-us Volvo is that it has a mini-tailgate. I have a lot of memories that involve conversations had while sitting on a tailgate (though it’s always… Continue reading
After a week in warm, sunny Florida, it was really nice to come home to autumn. East Tennessee is beautiful right now, so we decided to go for a drive through Cades Cove… Continue reading
We were fortunate to have a handful of people to stay with while on our vacation – Lesli and Jimmy, Aunt Debbie and Uncle Bob, and my parents – but while Chuck and… Continue reading
I don’t drink tea, hot or cold, which I fully understand is wrong and offensive since I was born and raised in the South. But I’d totally choke down some afternoon tea if… Continue reading
Too clever, too genius. Why aren’t I in the letterpress business? Hmmm. Find them here. Happy Weekend!
I stumbled upon MarkHed Designs as my Etsy treasure hunt continues. I adore quaint, simple jewelry, and these have a touch of cleverness. Oh I’m so tempted! After dropping Jeremy off at school… Continue reading
