Happy Friday from the front porch! We hope love has shown up for you when you’ve needed it most this week.
I know a lot of you are in major clean-up mode following all the winter storms and we continue to lift you up.
After celebrating my baby sister’s milestone birthday in the Lowcountry last weekend, we were home long enough to celebrate my nephew’s 6th birthday, work a few days, catch up on laundry, repack, and are now officially back on the road headed to the mountains to check on a loved one.
I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve checked the day and date on my phone. This week has been an adventure, that’s for sure!

Just a Heads Up…
Just a heads up, while we try to keep our posting schedule as consistent as possible, our posts will more than likely be a bit off next week as well.
I’m hoping to know more soon but right now it’s hard to say how much care is going to be needed until we get there and can fully assess the situation.
For those of you that have had to navigate an elderly loved one’s care while not physically living in the same town, you know exactly what I mean.
We’re grateful for your understanding and appreciate you so much.
We hope your weekend is peace-filled and relaxing and can’t wait to share more next week!Until next time, I’ll see you on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.
