Finally Winter At The Homestead

Finally Winter At The Homestead

It has been such an odd winter so far. The temperature has hardly gotten below 50 since the beginning of December. Even Christmas Day was a sunny 74 degrees. We hoped for some snow so we could enjoy the fun and beauty up on our little hilltop homestead. Well, the past few days did not disappoint. On Friday morning over 8 […]

New Music Monday + Kindness Advent Day #1

New Music Monday + Kindness Advent Day #1

We’re bringing you a little New Music Monday on Tuesday because it’s day #1 of our kindness advent & we wanted to start this thing out with a gift for our faithful readers! I wrote the bridge & chorus of this song last year. We were living with my mom & so much was up in the air and it just […]

A Cave, Small Business & Kindness Prep

A Cave, Small Business & Kindness Prep

I hope you all had a nice, relaxing Thanksgiving with family & friends. We shared a huge feast with Aubrey’s fam on Thursday. Then yesterday, we hosted my family at our house with a nacho bar, a pretty competitive game of football and crawling through a cave. What…you didn’t do that with your folks!?;) Last week, the boys were out exploring […]

Happy Daddy’s Day!

Happy Daddy’s Day!

We may be a bit biased but we think you’re the absolute best Dad around!!

Gigi

Gigi

So, for the past eight months, we have been living with my mother-in-law. For some of you the thought of that makes your stomach turn. You may be fine with the occasional visit but you couldn’t think of being under the same roof with her for more than a week. I’ve seen the chic flick stereotypes of the “monster-in-law” and […]

sickies, snow for days & shower progress

sickies, snow for days & shower progress

We started the week off passing around a pretty nasty tummy bug. It’s the first time in our marriage that we’ve been sick at the same time & let me just tell you…it was not pretty! We were praising Jesus for Gigi!! We honestly didn’t really know what was going on outside until about Tuesday. But it’s been a week […]

Kindness Advent – Day 21

Kindness Advent – Day 21

The kids are really missing Daddy right now because he’s been working such long days over at the house. This morning we slept in, made chocolate chip pancakes & caught up on some much needed cuddles…just what the doctor ordered! Grady is getting so big but moments like this remind me that he’s still our baby! At lunch, I told the […]

Kindness Advent – Day 1

Kindness Advent – Day 1

Thanksgiving night, we drove over to our storage unit in an attempt to find our Christmas decor. Thirty minutes & one serious circus later, we left with some boxes. Two trips later & I still can’t find our advent calendar! So…we are in the process of making another one. If you’re already feeling behind on some good intentions…I’m right there with ya!;) […]

32

32

Last year, Aubrey surprised me with Taylor Swift tickets.  I can’t help it, y’all…I love her!  On our way home from the concert, we were joking around about making a parody about being 32.  He said we should totally do this for your birthday.  So, this summer some of my crazy 30-something girlfriends got together for a family pizza party […]
