Christmas in the Country

This year, I did my best to soak up all the Christmas cheer possible.  I decked the halls, using a winter theme in much of the house to carry me into January.  This way, I only had to remove part of the decor after New Year's and left the rest until the end of January.  So much less stress doing it this way!  I never feel pressured to remove it all immediately, but I do like to start the year with a clean slate and less clutter.

Fall has finally arrived here in the south!  That means it's time to break out the sweaters, boots, scarves and all the fun fall accessories.  One accessory necessary for this busy time of year is a watch.  I have long admired Jord Wood Watches and I am so happy to say that I now have one of my own.

Project Overload: Before and Afters

Here's a peak at a few projects I've done since the first of the year. I have to admit, I'm terrible at documenting all the steps.  I get so into what I'm doing that I forget to take pictures of everything.  But I did want to share some of my favorite small projects with you. Take a look...........

These are the night stands I purchased at the annual Peaches to the Beaches yard sale in March 


Hiking Cloudland Canyon

You guys know us well enough by now to know that on vacation, we also try to get in a good day hike if possible.  This summer when we went to Nashville and then back to the Lookout Mountain area, we decided to go check out Cloudland Canyon. We had heard alot about it, but don't usually go up in that part of the state for mountain hikes.  Since we were in the area, we were excited to finally get to go.


Views from Lookout Mountain

Have you ever been to Lookout Mountain in North Georgia? It's been years since I was there.....like when our boys were little. The Mister and I decided this summer would be the perfect opportunity to see this beautiful place again since we'd be coming back through north Georgia from our time in Nashville, Tennessee.


Nashville: Where Legends are Made

The Mister and I have been wanting to see Nashville for a few years now, so we decided to make it part of our vacation this year. We spent three nights there and had so much fun!
