Lately // December 2016

Lately // December 2016

It’s been less than a month since my last Lately post, but we’ve packed that month with far more than four weeks’ worth of activity. Not surprisingly, this December has been dominated by all-things Christmas: decorating, Christmas parties, shopping and wrapping. . . it’s been a bit of a blur, but also so fun. This… Continue Reading

Lately // November 2016

And just like that, we’ve arrived at Cyber Monday. I hope that you had a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend, that you got your fill of turkey and pumpkin pie, and that you made the best of some Black Friday deals. As much as I love this quick transition into the holidays, it always catches me off… Continue Reading

Lately // October 2016

I like to think that Anne Shirley and I would have been kindred spirits, if for no other reason than, like Anne, “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” October has long been my favorite month, and this year it lived up to its full potential. The wonderful weather we’ve… Continue Reading

Lately // September 2016

Isn’t September wonderful? It offers the same fresh start as the New Year, but without January’s dreary weather or post-Christmas blues.

This month has definitely felt like a new chapter for… Continue Reading

I’m back from vacation, and what better way to return from a break than with a monthly recap?! August has been good to our little family. The month was filled with laughter, adventure, family time, and memories that I will treasure forever. Our busyness levels exceeded my usual threshold, but I wouldn’t change a thing.… Continue Reading

Lately // July 2016

This month has been pretty low-key around here, and after the jam-packed month we had in June, it’s been a welcome change of pace. These long, hot days have been filled with the usual errands and household chores, as well as plenty of playtime both indoors and out. Here’s a look at what summer has… Continue Reading

Lately // June 2016

Lately // June 2016

Without a doubt, this has been our best month of 2016. June started off rainy, and though I generally hate the rain, I really enjoyed the drama of our nightly thunderstorms. Now we’ve arrived at the hot and humid weather everyone warned us about, and I can honestly say that I love it! It’s not… Continue Reading

Lately // May 2016

We’re certainly catapulting through this year; I can’t believe that summer is almost here! After several busy months, May has felt refreshingly slow-paced. We’ve fully settled into our new normal, and while I don’t know if I’ll ever stop referring to California as home, I’m adjusting well to life in Texas. Here’s a look at… Continue Reading

Lately // April 2016

Last Friday, I gave a big-picture view of what our family has been up to over the past couple of months. Now it’s time for a fun look at some of what I’ve been reading, watching, eating, and simply enjoying lately! Reading Lately . . . With much of my life and world being reconfigured… Continue Reading

During those five weeks, our little family celebrated a wonderful Christmas, survived an onslaught… Continue Reading
