After the disastrous move we had a few weeks ago, I can finally AND happily say life has calmed down to a low roar and we’re getting our sea legs here in the Tar State. There’s so much to see and do, we’re like kids in a candy shop. Sunday we went to the Southern Living Idea House located on beautiful Bald Head Island, an
These last few weeks have been a whirlwind. The kind that gives you pause and makes you wonder if and when a sense of normalcy will ever return. But now that we’re settled in BAM for the next few months, it’s getting there. Painfully slowly mind you, but getting there, and progress IS progress. Let me start with where I left off, just prior to
We are in contract and hope to close on September 15th! I’ve gotten numerous emails wondering what’s happening with the sale so a quick post should answer most of the questions I’ve been asked. Question #1: Where will you stay while the house is being built in NC? Answer: In BAM, but it will take at least six months to build the house.
This post will be short both on photos and words. I just wanted to get something out since it’s been a while, but it will take me some time to collect my thoughts and download/edit my pics. Hopefully by next week. We returned home on Monday after three and a half months on the road, visiting a few towns in Florida as well as Hilton
For most of us, we’ve settled into 2017. Maybe we’re so ‘settled’ that the ubiquitous goals to lose weight or organize our homes have already gone by the wayside. And that’s ok. Yes, it’s wonderful to have an organized home. But having an alphabetized spice rack isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. It’s great to have goals to get the little things done that make
I belong to a FB group whose focus is the photo editing software called Lightroom. Whenever I log into FB, my feed is inundated with postings from this group. Mostly it’s photographers showing their work and the photos are more often than not beautiful, so I don’t mind this new phenomenon at all. It gives me something to work toward actually. But it did get
The title of this post is a bit deceiving. You see, *I* didn’t redesign my blog, a graphic designer did. (I would no sooner mess with the back end of my blog than volunteer for colonoscopy research.) But I had a vision, a timeline and a budget in mind. Did any of those things actually come close to what I planned? Not exactly. So
It’s finally here. Whew! My new site. New look, and more importantly, new name. Some of you may recall I mentioned a few changes would be coming soon in early January. Don’t even get me started on why that didn’t happen, but let’s just say my blood pressure was probably through the roof on more than one occasion. What would you think if I told
Time is so fleeting, and perhaps the most significant gift blogging gives us is a frame of reference and a way to look back on our year, and even our life, and see it as it unfolded in ways that otherwise might have been forgotten. Yes, there were projects and crafts and recipes and everything else a lifestyle blogger like myself tends to post about.
