The Lake

Todd and I had the opportunity to spend three days at the lake a couple weeks ago, sans kids. Thanks to the bravery and generosity of my in-laws, who took the kids for a week. Sure, they sent them to Vacation Bible School, and Todd and I are “jury is still out” on the whole […]

In the Garden

So, haven’t blogged about my garden much lately. I heart my garden – It is the best part of our move to the new house. For the two years that the old house was on the market, I barely grew anything in the garden. What was the point in creating a lot of garden infrastructure […]

Morning Mayhem

So, I’m not getting a ton of my work done this morning, but boy are the kids having fun. Two dogs, two five-year-olds, and three, count them, three, three-year-olds, all over at the house playing. Funny how my kids are so much more well-behaved when they have friends over.

Flowers, Sculpture, Fountains, Friends

I took the kids to the Atlanta Botanical Garden with some friends on Saturday. It was hot as Hades, although the Savannahians claimed I don’t know what hot is. Whatevs. . . . Although I had both kids (Todd had a shoot on Saturday), I did get a chance to chat with Jason and Alison […]

Eight Years

I can’t believe we’ve been married for eight years. The time has just flown by. It really goes warp speed once you have children, too. For our anniversary, we went to visit our friend Tom in Chicago. He lives with his girlfriend Tara (she is awesome!) and it was great to hang out with them. […]

Not So Great

At posting in real time when on vacay. We are having a wonderful time, though, and come home tonight. Took a lot of photos, so you might be able to check them out on my Flickr feed (over to the right) if I get around to uploading them before I leave.

Sitting On the Edge Of My Future

I am pretty sure that Facebook is slowly eating my blog. . . . However, here I am. I have been scanning more old photos, and came across a great set of pics from college. They are mostly from my college graduation. Here is the whole set on Flickr. A few things that initially struck […]

Nephew Overload at Dogwood Girl

I know that I just posted a picture of Dash last week, but that was a situation where he had to share the spotlight with Emily the Terrible, and really, as his mother so aptly put it, “Dash is a complete publicity whore.”
