Been meaning to tell you that the girls here at the office gave me this Death & Texas clutch for Christmas and I absolutely love it.

Here it is if you might like one for yourself.

It is the perfect size for my phone, lipgloss, checkbook, a few pens, and my wallet. Sometimes I throw it in my big purse, but usually I just carry it alone.

In random garden news… the moss on my patio is really green these days.  It’s been dreary and rainy which the moss loves.  Do you spy my terriers?

My mom has always said that buttermilk will grow moss.  I haven’t needed any buttermilk, but when I saw this on pinterest I was intrigued.  Momma was right.



Hello.  Sorry for being such a stranger.  Just been working and mothering.

I saw this today and thought it was lovely:

Found it on the Waterworks Blog, here.

A few months back Coastal Living called and asked if I’d do a little Q&A for their February issue, which is on newsstands now.

Marla took the picture and thankfully I don’t look as cold as I actually was.  Many thanks to the folks at Coastal Living for including me.

A couple of weekends back Darby and her family came for the weekend.  A mutual friend offered us a house in Rosemary Beach for the weekend, which is something you don’t turn down.  It was a wonderful little staycation.  Of course, Sloane didn’t quite know how to handle herself in bunk beds with three older cousins and sleep the first night wasn’t exactly peaceful, but we managed and had a blast.

People often email and ask where they should stay when they visit my little beach community, but it’s not something I can answer easily because it’s rare (aside from McBeach) that I take a staycation.  We loved our weekend here (here’s a link to the house).   The house was just one house off the gulf and right on the green, it really was perfect.

Last week I bought this…

a Pop Phone and I love it.


News from the home front, Sloane is potty trained.  We went pantless for a couple of days… no accidents and done.  Easy, peasy.  My girl is getting so big it sorta hurts my heart.  I want to freeze time.  Last Friday evening she accidentally dropped a box of crayons, when they crashed to the floor she exclaimed, “Oh my little goodness!”

Happy Friday, friends!
