Winter White

Last week, Georgia experienced Snow Storm Benji out of nowhere. What was supposed to be a light dusting ended up being a twelve inches of snow with thousands of power outages? That morning, I had gone to take my glucose test and in the middle of my appointment, I heard people talking about how it was starting to stick and they were thinking about closing the office early. I made it home just in time and later that day Ian, was able to wrap up and enjoy the snow with us. Ian built a snowman taller than him, and we…

Snow Days | Rare Days

Snow days are rare days around here. When they do happen, our grocery stores are usually nightmares until the shelves are empty, no milk and no bread. Does anyone else ever wonder why those are the essentials? I’m thinking we really need chocolate, red meat (for Ian) and plenty of sweet tea since Chick-fil-a won’t be open. This is Cove’s second snow day. Last year I can’t say he enjoyed himself, but this year was a different story. He loved walking on it and had a great time laughing as we danced and made total fools of ourselves sliding around…

First Snow

We are barely a month into 2016 and we’ve already experienced a snow day, and this time it was extra special. It was Cove’s first snow day! I can’t say he was too impressed. Every time a snowflake hit his face he would cry, but he was very warm and comfortable in his snow bear outfit once we got inside. I can’t say I blame him though, I would rather be at the beach in 70 degree weather and sun any day. Whether he liked it or not, it is so much fun to experience it with him for the first time. It…

Thoughts on Things | The Beginning of 2015

We have been working on some home renovations the past few weeks, which means our house is not in a “home-y” state and doesn’t feel all that welcoming. I joke with Ian that my clothes are spread out between three different rooms so it takes me three times as long to get ready now ;). But, amidst all the craziness, I wanted to share my current random assortment of thoughts. Isaiah 43 and 26 have been my anchor lately. Ian and I have dealt with some pretty intense pain the past two months, and I honestly don’t know how I would get by…

When it snows in Georgia

As you probably know, we don’t get a lot of snow in Georgia. And a lot of the time, we end up turning our pajamas inside out for a cold day with no precipitation. This year, snowpocalypse hit the south and we weren’t expecting it. My stomach was in my throat for about three hours as I attempted to drive home on the icy roads. I ended up pulling off the road and walking two miles to get home. Ian’s commute is about 50 minutes, but this day, it took him 7.5 hours to get home. We were extremely lucky compared…
