Styling Session with Amy Penny of Evolving Style

I have never been ashamed of buying clothes second-hand. From consignment sales for the kids or Diane von Furstenberg finds for myself at my local Goodwill, I see thrift stores as a treasure trove and have since college. And when I started following Amy Penny on Instagram years ago, I quickly became a customer, as she was selling thrifted kids clothes to fund her pending adoption. Fast forward several years, lots of money spent, her new adopted son, lots of[Read more]

Back to School 2019

Welp, I blinked and summer was over. I told my mom last week that the summer flew by, and she said, it wasn’t that it flew by, it’s more like it was just REALLY short! And it was. The kids got out at the end of May, and went back in last Thursday. We’ve been back at it for a week now. I am happy to get back into a routine, but I am sad that our lazy days are[Read more]

Summer Obsessions

The kids go back to school on Thursday, so we’re down to our last few days of summer. But before I get all sentimental, I thought I’d share some of our family obsessions from the summertime!

Here are some links that I’ve come across lately that were too fun to keep to myself! Healthy Dip Recipes. YUM! Have you checked out Paperless Post lately? Scott’s birthday is coming up next month and[Read more]

Summertime Peach and Tomato Salad + Weekly Meal Plan

tomato and peach salad

I love finding simple recipes for all our fabulous summer Farmer’s Market finds. We love to scour our local market for squash, zucchini, cucumbers, greens, okra, tomatoes (of course), and Georgia favorites, peaches! The kids will just eat them like apples, but I like to find more creative ways to use them. So imagine my delight when I came across this recipe from Mark Bittman of the New York Times that I had saved (and printed out!) ages ago. So[Read more]

Reading, Watching, & Listening

There is SO MUCH GOOD TV ON this summer, of course there are always great books to be read, and the selection of good podcasts have never been better. And I am all about consuming all different kinds of media, and sharing some of my favorites with you!

Mid-Summer Check-In

Hello my long-lost friends! I took a somewhat unintentional summer hiatus, but am back to check in with you! I hope your summer is going well- it’s lasted about 30 minutes for us, or so it seems. I CAN NOT believe it’s already halfway over! It’s equal parts depressing and motivating. We’ve got a lot to cram into the last month of summertime! But so far, we’ve had some fun, some work, some downtime, some travel, and I thought I’d[Read more]
