Hey there! How's life treating you? I've had a bit of an itch to write here again, so let's get to it. I'm in my comfy bed after a beautiful evening at the Savannah Bananas baseball game with Piers and Wallace. First of all, if you like baseball, or even if you don't but enjoy … Continue reading Summer – Baseball, Boys, and Tension Headaches
A friend posted the following video on Facebook, and I thought it was very cool. Ian Mercer is the photographer and he took this with a drone and edited on his iPhone (according to his Vimeo blurb.) I don't know much about drones, but I'm becoming more intrigued when I see results like these. Piers … Continue reading Savannah From the Sky
Hello friends! I'm collecting myself and basking in gratitude. My family and friends came through the storm relatively unscathed. The boys, our cat, and I left Savannah voluntarily last Wednesday after school was cancelled and drove to my mom's outside of Atlanta. Gil stayed to tie up some loose ends at work and arrived Thursday … Continue reading And Then Hurricane Matthew Crashed October
I haven't done one of these in a long time, so how about some long overdue happy. Exploring outdoors helps everyone in our household. Engaging with nature is centering and peaceful, and it certainly appears to have that effect on my children. By hump day, I couldn't face our dining room table and homework and … Continue reading What’s Going Well Wednesday #WGWW — on Friday!
This is a shot I took last weekend when I was exploring behind my house. It would be a bit disingenuous to refer to this as "my back yard" since technically it's past our property lines, but isn't it simply gorgeous? The canal feeds into the Wilmington River and is one of several canals that … Continue reading Happy Earth Day – in a slightly tardy fashion
The boys and I spent an afternoon at Tybee Island last week. We typically head that way for beach fun, but it was too chilly for that, so we waved at the ocean from the bridge and explored elsewhere. They hit the playground while I played with my camera, and then we all took a … Continue reading Island Winter Dreary
Greetings, friends. Life has been happening the past two weeks. For those of you waiting patiently for my follow-up on Social Media, I haven't forgotten you. Part 1 sparked more thought than I ever imagined. Part 2 is in the works, amongst other less exciting things. Check out my latest at Live. Snap. Write. and … Continue reading An Outing in Savannah
After my last two posts...I need a happy diversion. How about you? The older I get, the more I realize how a full life is made up of delightful and lovely, as well as gut-wrenching and horrid. There's also the run-of-the-mill. The mundane. The in between. I strive to embrace it all. Today I stumbled … Continue reading Bonjour + Ciao Does Savannah
Seriously, you guys, I was excited to post this week since I missed last week, but I'm all mixed up (obviously!!!) and realized this morning that . . . today is actually Thursday. Here is my disclaimer: A LOT is going well, but other things not so much -- for instance, Wallace was the first … Continue reading What’s Going Well. . . Wait! What Day is It?!
Happy Wednesday, friends. It's good that I'm doing this because I sincerely need to focus on the positive... I'll leave it at that. Here are some random photos from my hanging-on-by-a-thread phone: Reading material that makes me happy. We found all the pieces! Y0u guys, I feel like I'm in the Twilight Z0ne (Please try … Continue reading What’s Going Well Wednesday — In Photos
