Christmas Moments

Travel

Hope those of you who celebrate Christmas had a lovely time. We were down in my hometown of Hillsborough, NC visiting family and friends. My parents actually bought a new house for retirement and this was our first time staying there! I’ll leave you with a few highlights from our trip. A solo run on the very cool River Walk in Hillsborough. I’m not much of a runner outside of quick jaunts with the BOB, but this trail left me…

Happy Birthday Emerson Grace!

Life

I had to work on Thursday, but my mom was able to be at home to meet the carpet cleaners and mosquito guy so that my house was ready for the birthday party (and the market…). Work days always fly by, but I tried to stop and think about my labor and visited Emerson in the nursery IMG_5970.jpg IMG_5971.jpg IMG_5975.jpg IMG_5986.jpg

Garden Wedding in Cville

Hello, hello. I’m sorry it’s been a while. There’s a lot going on, which I’ll tell you about soon. As I’m sure many of you saw on social media, my sister’s wedding was last weekend! We had a fabulous time, and I’m thankful our travel went smoothly! We arrived in Charlottesville on Friday, and had a lovely cocktail party with the family that evening. Saturday, we ate a fun lunch on the downtown mall, and by late afternoon, it was…

Is it October Yet?

Life Travel

Hi y’all, There’s not a whole lot going on over here – September has been kind of blah in general? After Emerson’s croup, she came down with her first double ear infection. So we spent our weekend inside with the exception of quickly grabbing margaritas and guacamole before getting takeout on Saturday night. I’m hoping to get out and about more this coming weekend! I’m happy to be resting on the couch after finishing another work week. It was a…

A Week at Bald Head

Travel

Hi! How are you guys? I’m so happy to be home after a fun-filled trip. My family spent the week at Bald Head Island for our annual beach trip! We flew home to NC two days early because the flights were outrageous over the holiday weekend. Emerson was delighted to meet my childhood best friend, Ducky. She was saying duc-t all day and was too excited to sleep or eat if Ducky was in sight.    Matt’s birthday was on…

Hello, hello, So many fun things have happened…where do I begin? My mom was in town last week, and we had a blast playing with Emerson and shopping for summer clothes. My mom couldn’t believe how much personality Em has and how much she has grown up since March. It was nice to have some additional help for a few days, and I slept until 8:00! Matt and I also celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary! My mom was kind…

Kicking Off Summer Break

Life The Working World

And just like that another school year is complete! I’ve been so busy lately, I haven’t even had time to think about summer. But now it’s here and I have 10 weeks off with my sweet girl! Matt’s parents were visiting last weekend and we did a lot of eating around town. We finally made it to Pecan Lodge after living in Dallas for 4 years! The meat lived up to the hype. Although, we skipped the main line by…

Spring Break

Life Travel

Hello! We’re back from our spring break trip to MD and FL. Despite a few low points, we had a great time. Airplane travel went great with Emerson, but all three of us got a cold during the first half of the trip. Needless to say, sleep was difficult. We had a blast visiting Matt’s parents though, and enjoyed being able to relax at their house and catch up. My family even drove up for one night, so we had…
