A glance into our honeymoon in Amsterdam…

If you don’t already know, we went to Amsterdam on our honeymoon last month. I will be sharing more pictures and details from our trip later. In the meantime, for a quick look at our trip, click the “Read More” link above.

Holler and Dash had me at “Biscuit House”. I am a fan of all things breakfast, but biscuits are my favorite. My mouth waters just by browsing their menu. This cute little breakfast spot is located on The Strip at the University of Alabama.

Boy Has It Been A While | Savannah Video | Happy Easter

Boy has it been a while. I underestimated the time it takes to be a maid of honor while planning your own wedding. Not to mention, serving on the board of an awesome foundation which, I will fill you in on later. I am enjoying every minute of all these experiences, but there isn’t much time left for anything else. So, blogging has taken a back seat and I truly miss it. So for now, I will leave you with a quick video of Anna’s Bachelorette in Savannah. Don’t get too excited, it’s no Spielberg. 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter with family and friends!

Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.a] They will come in and go out, and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.12 The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. 13 The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.

14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep.

John 10:7-15 (NIV)

Our Engagement

On November 30, 2016, Trey and I went to the train trestle on Main Avenue in Downtown Northport to get pictures taken for Trey’s mom for Christmas. He said she had been asking for them for years. I kind of thought it was a little suspicious since Trey does not like to be in pictures.

The moment I will remember for ever!

If you thought we’d forgotten Winston, thing again! He was there waiting for his turn in front of the camera.

Winston had just gotten his haircut so he looks a little bare.

Looking back, 7 1/2 years of dating went by so fast. If you would have asked me during the 5+ years of long distance I would have said time was moving as slow as a molasses. I am so excited and want time to slow down so we can enjoy this stage in our life.

Danielle Walker’s Against All Grain Celebrations

Danielle Walker's Against All Grain Celebrations

Danielle Walker’s Against All Grain Celebrations is my idea of the ideal cookbook. Don’t let the idea that it is a gluten-free, dairy-free and paleo cookbook steer you away.  

Walker gives you full menus for almost every occasion you can think of. She starts with everything you need for a New Year’s Eve cocktail party and then moves on to a Game Day Buffet menu. My favorite menus would have to be a tie between the Summer Shower with recipes like chicken salad biscuits, lemon lavender bundt cakes and a mimosa bar and the Christmas Breakfast which includes recipes for cinnamon rolls, sausage breakfast casserole and gingerbread lattes. However, I am most excited about trying the homemade ginger ale recipe. I love a good ice cold ginger ale. 

She also gives you inspiration for tablescapes and serving ideas in the photos throughout the book. The photos are just gorgeous. They all make me want to throw a dinner party for every holiday!        


TAKE A PEEK INSIDE…

Christmas Card List | Free Printable

It’s that time of year again! Every year I try to be even more organized and on top of things than the year before. Whether or not that actually happens is another story. So this year I created this Christmas Card List to keep up with who we want to send cards to and who we received a card from. (Tip: I always keep a few extra cards on hand in case I receive a card from someone I did not send one to.)

On November 30th Trey popped the question and I said, “Yes!” He asked me to set up pictures so we could frame them and give them to our moms for Christmas. During the pictures he got down on one knee. Let the wedding planning begin! 

Brooke Madison took our pictures and did a great job. I cannot wait to see the rest of the pictures she took.
