Join Me As I #PrayForTownville

Today has been very emotional. When I tucked my 7 year old into bed tonight I held her a little tighter for a little longer and said an extra prayer for her safety. I have shed many tears today over a situation that didn't involve my children, but it hit really close to home. A photo posted by FOX Carolina News (@foxcarolinanews) on Sep 28, 2016 at 1:22pm PDT The Townville Elementary shooting is now national news. Early this afternoon Ben and I sat in our kitchen eating a late lunch when I took a moment to scroll through Facebook. I scrolled through the usual funny and/or political … [Read more...]

I Stopped Worrying and Enjoyed My Anniversary

I know I have been awfully quiet lately, and I apologize. The truth is I really haven't been in the best place lately. I let worry that have consumed me over the last couple of months push me into a bad place. Back in June when we found out about Ben's cancer, I knew immediately everything would change for us, but I had no idea how. The last 10 weeks have been hard for me. I'm a worrier by nature, so of course I have been worried to death about my little family. I worry about Ben's next CT scan finding a new tumor. I worry about my girls and if they will have to grow up without their dad. … [Read more...]

The Glade Autumn Collection Has Arrived

We are only a few days into September, and I am already rejoicing the changes in the air. The scents of Autumn engulf me as I walk through the yard, past the muscadines, pear tree, and apple trees. We have a multitude of pecans and walnuts hanging on the trees, and my heart just isn't in a Summer place anymore. It's amazing how much has changed in one week. Last Wednesday Ben and I spent the morning selling at the flea market. The humidity was so thick by 10 A.M. we were sweltering and ready to pack up early. Two days later hurricane Hermine graced us with a beautifully cool 74° day without … [Read more...]

Wild Kratts Wild Reptiles Now on DVD

We saw a very large black snake sunning yesterday on the pasture gate. My ever curious 3 year old, Aubrey, wanted to touch it, so Ben held it for her to pet for a few minutes before allowing it to slither away to the barn. 6 year old Ellie wanted to know why the black snake doesn't make noises with it's tail like the Rattlesnake she just watched on her new Wild Kratts Wild Reptiles DVD. A quick walk across the yard to see the horses turned into a science lesson about different types of snakes. That's why I love PBS Kids and the various educational shows that are available on PBS as well as … [Read more...]

Night Night Farm by Amy Parker Review & Giveaway

A new book, Night Night Farm by Amy Parker,  arrived at our house a couple weeks ago, and it has been practically impossible to pry this book from Aubrey's grasp. The thing is, she loves this new book so much it goes everywhere with her. It rides along in her little back pack when we leave the house. She curls up in her mini rocker numerous times a day to "read" it, and of course we have to read this book every night before bedtime. I have even caught her sleeping with it a few times! Needless to say, Night Night Farm has been a huge hit in our house. About the Book: Moo moo, cows! … [Read more...]
