New Favorite: Reclaimed Wood Initials from Urban Farmgirl

I have a confession to make. I didn't sign up for a single Fall home tour this year.  I got invited to join a few, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it.  My life is going through a good deal of an upheaval at the moment, and I didn't have the energy to completely redecorate my fantel with all the usual autumn accoutrements. In fact, I still have my Christmas mantel up from last year because it makes me THAT happy. Up until this morning, I not pulled out a single piece of fall decor … [Read more...]

Pucker up, Buttercup.

A few months back while we were unloading our groceries into the empty kitchen of the Mermaid cottage on Tybee island, Rhoda from Southern Hospitality whipped out all these Naturebox snacks to share with us.  By far, my favorite snack of that trip were the Naturebox Lemon Pucker Pistachios.  I have looked for them at the grocery and other local stores, but couldn’t find them ANYwhere.  As time went by my cravings for these impossible-to-find snacks reached a high alert level, and then a … [Read more...]

I have an important announcement to make.  Believe it or not, my freezer is stocked to the brim with delicious, healthy meals for the rest of the month.

New Favorite: Little Passports for my Little Explorer

My kid is a geography nut.  I mean, not to brag, but at just four years old he was able to correctly place every state on the Stack the States game without a single strike (with a little prompting from Grandma).  He loves maps, and globes, and he loves to watch the blue dot moving on the Google Earth app while we’re driving to school.  So when I found this FUN monthly subscription for kids called Little Passports, I was like PERFECTO.  I knew Garrett would absolutely love it. Learning toys are … [Read more...]

I had the most amazing 35th birthday with my girlfriends in a gorgeous house in Watercolor, Florida last month.  We went to the beach and ate great food and hit up all of my favorite haunts along the Gulf Coast from Red Bar to The Back Porch.  It was a perfect weekend.  Besides the amazing scenery, girl time and decorporn that I got to experience all weekend, one of the highlights of the trip were these custom made cookies that my friend Steph brought to the party. The cookies were designed by … [Read more...]
