From the Front Porch: Mother’s Day Edition

Happy Thursday from the front porch sweet friends. Thanks so much for being here and for making us a part of your day!

We’re back in town after spending spring break at the cabin and it feels so good to be home.

The weather was amazing with 40s in the morning and high 60s during the day.

Everything was blooming and green which made for some fun springtime adventures.  

We hiked almost every day, celebrated a milestone birthday, went to the aquarium, treasure hunted, read a book cover to cover, ate pimento cheese sandwiches and drank Arnold Palmers while watching the final round of the Masters, tried out a few new restaurants, looked at potential properties, mailed postcards to the littles, snuggled up by the fire, and spent time with loved ones.

This week I’ve been preparing for upcoming May festivities and trying to get back on track after bringing home a cold and sinus bug.

I swear I just can’t seem to build my immune system back up after having Covid and Strep last year so let me know if you have any suggestions. I seem to catch every little thing these days.

Despite all that, it’s been a great week and I hope you’ve had one too!

PS: I found a small collection of the cutest postcards and stationery sets at a place in Dawsonville, GA called the Fancy Flea. It’s in the roundabout heading towards Ellijay – you can’t miss it.

    1. You are so welcome, MaryJo! I love all the layers of greenery and texture that you pulled together. It feels like the best way to celebrate both spring and summer! Hugs, CoCo

  2. Sounds like you had a wonderful vacation, except for bringing home a bug! Prayers that you feel better soon and that your immune system gets back on track!! Can’t wait to check out all your amazing links! Have a great week!

    1. Thank you so much, Donna, I really appreciate it. I had no idea it was such a common thing to get sick on vacation. I know you’ve been working hard at getting your health in order as well so here’s to hoping we’re both back on track really soon. Hugs for a happy weekend, CoCo

  3. Oh my goodness CoCo, that is the most adorable stationary ever! I love anything with pups on it, and this does not disappoint. I’ve been reading Eat to Beat Disease. Dr. Li believes we can cure a lot of illnesses, I found him while researching covid. I had an adverse reaction to the vaccine and have been sick for 3 years, no one really seems to know what to do with me. I have been doing a lot of reading, and of course, there are some opinions out there. Dr. Robin Rose has been studying covid since the beginning, she has a lot to say, about the topic. Another doctor, and I cannot recall her name at the moment has said they have looked at it incorrectly from the beginning, and that it is actually an autoimmune disorder and that it attacks the immune system similar to AIDS which is pretty scary to me. They say my reaction has been pretty extreme, but there are a lot of other people out there suffering in so many different ways from covid and the vaccine that no one seems to be really talking about. I hope you find relief and that you can find some answers soon. I keep researching, if I find something of significance, I will reach out to you and share. Feel better, hugs!

  4. That vintage stationary is so charming! What a great find! Thanks for the ideas for Mothers Day. I am still struggling with a gift for my step Mom in California. You always have such great ideas. Oh – and- YES totally understand the issue with getting sick at a drop of a hat. Hang in there! I think with time, your immune system will build back up.

  5. p.s. I bought two of the pillow covers you shared! Love them!
