Happy Memorial Day!

  Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We did not pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. -Ronald Reagan, March 30, 1961 On this Memorial Day, I will be spending my[Read more]

Summer Bucket List 2015

We are pretty pumped about summer around here.  We have had a few lazy days this week, which have been fantastic (and I’m sure we’ll have plenty more), but we are ready to do some fun things and make the most of our time off from school!  So, as we do every year, we compiled a fun summer bucket list, of the things that we want to do together. Some are new additions and some are old favorites, but all will[Read more]

#LutonSummerofFun2015 Kick Off Party

Last Friday was our last day of school, and marked the beginning of our summer!!!  I decided that I really wanted to have  big celebration once Brantley got home from school, to celebrate an awesome school year behind us, and to kick off a summer full of fun! This was the sign I taped to the garage door as we entered the house.  I, of course, had Brantley read it aloud to gain entry!  The kids went and put their[Read more]

What I Wore Wednesday

Hi Friends!  First of all, thank you for all the sweet birthday wishes yesterday!!  I think 33 is going to be one heck of a year. 🙂  Secondly, welcome to WIWW!  These posts have been few and far between lately, but I have several outfits to share today. I like Lilly Pulitzer, and have a few Lilly dresses, but I was not waiting in line at 6 am outside of Target waiting for the collection to debut last month.  Not[Read more]

Happy Birthday, Gracie!

    My sweet Gracie girl turned four years old yesterday, and I can hardly believe it.  Cliche, I know, but it seems like just yesterday that we were bringing our teeny little sweet Birdie home, and changing our family for the better. I had big plans for the day, but unfortunately Gracie started running a fever late Friday night (most likely from the virus Bennett had last week), and had a febrile seizure early Sunday morning (her first one).[Read more]

Things to Tell Brantley

  Today is Brantley’s last day of Kindergarten, and it is a bittersweet day.  I am SO, SO, SOOO glad for the summer to be here, since it brings along with it lazy mornings, beach vacations, and lots of fun adventures among other things, but Kindergarten is a is a big milestone, and she burst right through it and has come out the other side.  It makes me sad to think how fast time is passing, and the kids are[Read more]

Midweek Randoms

Whew, what a week.  Today is Grayson’s last day of preschool, and tomorrow is Brantley’s last day of Kindergarten, so we have been slammed with Teacher Appreciation, the end of soccer season, teacher gifts, Mother’s Day,  two family birthdays (and three more to go!), class parties, and several other things going on.  Needless to say, this has been a busy May, and we’re not even halfway through!  But, like I said, only two days of school left, and then we will be[Read more]

Thank You, Mom

When it comes down to it, it’s not the gifts that moms want on Mother’s Day.  It’s not the brunch, the birthstone jewelry, or the mani/pedis after church.  It’s not even the sweet fingerpainted handprint flower bouquets and homemade cards.  Though all these things are wonderful and are absolute treasures, it’s about a little bit more. I truly think that moms just want to know that they are appreciated. We just want to know that the little things, the day[Read more]

Happy Birthday, Dad!

Happy Birthday to my first love, my first hero, my first protector and provider.  It really is hard for me to put into words the impact that my dad has had in my life, as I write and delete sentences over and over, trying, and failing, to give credit where credit is due (see also: Mother’s Day post tomorrow :)). When I was in third grade, I wanted to play baseball.  We were (are) and Atlanta Braves family (my mom[Read more]

Hello Monday

After a full and beautiful weekend, here are some things that I am saying hello to on this Monday morning… Hallelujah, Hello only 10 more days of school left!!!  I think the kids are just as excited to be out of school for summer as I am.  We are ready for some jammie days, some relaxed fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants kind of days.  Right before swim lessons start, then two beach trips, Vacation Bible School, Dance Camp, Golf Camp, etc., etc.  Does anyone[Read more]
