I grew up not a UGA fan. One of my earliest memories involves a vinyl covered stool that my Aunt and Uncle had in their home when we were visiting. It had a Yellow Jacket on it. My Uncle graduated from Georgia Tech. From then on, I understood us to be a Tech family. Because… Continue reading It Wasn’t About the Hoodie–Not Really

Teal is the New Orange
Last year I shared with y'all about the Teal Pumpkin Project, which can best be described on the FARE website: "Launched as a national campaign by Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) in 2014, the Teal Pumpkin Project™ raises awareness of food allergies and promotes inclusion of all trick-or-treaters throughout the Halloween season." Basically, pick… Continue reading Teal is the New Orange
Rabbit Trails and Songs Around the Globe
This morning the littles and I read in our history book about the earthquake and subsequent tsunami that destroyed Lisbon, Portugal on November 1, 1755. What with it being All Saints' Day, many lives were lost while sitting in church on that tragic morning. The ones who fled to the harbor were later lost at… Continue reading Rabbit Trails and Songs Around the Globe
Listening to Hear
So speaking of listening, I wanted to tell you about a young man who has made a great impression on me and mine. Yesterday in the midst of our out and abouts, the littles and I found ourselves next door to the GW Boutique on the other side of town. Lest you think I was… Continue reading Listening to Hear
Road Tripping Down Memory Lane with My Crew and Marie

To Monogram or Not To Monogram
I grew up wearing hand-me-downs. I loved it when my cousins and others shared their clothes with me. I couldn't wait to go through the bags and see what I'd be wearing for the next few months. It was like Christmas about twice a year--so much fun. Maybe that's why I love shopping at the… Continue reading To Monogram or Not To Monogram
A GW Boutique Tale of Transformation and Appreciation
It had been a while since I'd been to the GW Boutique before my visit last Monday. A long while. As in, if I sat down and thought about it, I'd probably find myself in the middle of withdrawals. I'm not making light of withdrawals, y'all. It is a serious need I have. To find… Continue reading A GW Boutique Tale of Transformation and Appreciation
Because Life’s Too…..
Such a treat was in store for me today, and I had no idea. This afternoon my oldest and I headed out to run an errand. The littles were off with the Fella, so it was just the two of us. We were off seeking treasure--the last five jars of No Nut Butter that Aunt had… Continue reading Because Life’s Too…..
