With St. Patrick’s Day just two weeks away I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite ideas to help celebrate the day.
I don’t know about you guys but I’m in the midst of Valentine’s Day preparations. To be totally honest, it kind of snuck up on me this year. This list of 14 Valentine Gift Ideas is a celebration of love in action, which is the best kind of love. It’s also budget friendly and perfect for anyone in your life you care about…
Back in November my mom and I were on our way to Renningers in search of a few accessories, chandeliers and a dresser for Loblolly Manor. It’s about a 3 hour drive which naturally gave us plenty of time to catch up. While the conversation jumped from one topic to the next, we kept circling back to one issue in particular….2015 was flying by at warp speed.
2015…The Year of the Goat…and what a year it was.
I know some of you are probably cleaning up from the holidays this week so I wanted to share a simple system I use for storing ornaments. I love how festive the house looks at Christmas. It’s absolutely worth every minute of decorating but lets face it – it can get really messy really quick when it’s time to clean it all up. I started using this ornament organization system last year and I liked it so much I wanted to share it with you today.
As you may have guessed, we’ve been in the mountains all week long. It has been so nice to have a break. While I’ve been able to catch up with friends, family and naps, I’ve also had a lot of time of quiet reflection. The one theme that never seems to leave my thoughts is what this season is all about – an amazing gift of love.
It’s seems hard to believe as much as I love to bake but I can’t remember ever making gingerbread cookies until this year. My family usually makes sugar cookies each year and we have a good time decorating all the different shapes. I was sure I was going to win the cookie decorating contest over the Thanksgiving holiday at Loblolly Manor but my mom pulled a fast one on us at the last minute.
