Amaze Me Monday #161

Monday, May 2, 2016


Welcome to Amaze Me Monday!

My, oh, my...can you believe it's already the first day of May?  This year is off to such a fast start!

May is a great month around here.
Every year for the week of mother's day the girls in our family head to the beach to spend the week with my mom and aunt.  There are eight of us and we have such a fun and special time together!

It's also my birthday this week,
and while I love celebrating and eating lots of cake,
I'm ready for the clock to stop on aging!
I came across this saying a few years back; a great reminder when turning another year older starts to get the best of us...

A Timeless Log Home

Thursday, April 28, 2016


It's a dream of mine to one day have a place in the mountains.
I can picture it ... a new "old" colonial home built using a historic log home that's been moved to the perfect piece of property with mountain views and a rushing stream surrounding it.

It's just a dream and I'm not sure it will ever become a reality so it's a real treat to tour a home that has the look and feel of the one in my dreams, like this one.

Welcome to AMAZE ME MONDAY!

I hope you are having a great weekend.
These days I've been making it a point to spend more quality time with the special people in my life, so this week makes for the third time I've had to hose down the screened porch due to all the pollen...man is that a job!  It's worth it though; the porch is the perfect place to share coffee, hot baked goodies fresh from the oven and sweet conversation with family and friends.

Amaze Me Monday #158

Welcome to AMAZE ME MONDAY!

Here in North Carolina the weather has been a little crazy.
Sunny and 70 degrees one day,
cloudy and 45 degrees the next,
with snow in the NC mountains which is just 2 hours away.

No matter how crazy the weather, I'm still so glad it's SPRING!

Welcome to AMAZE ME MONDAY!

Have you been spring-ifying?
Most everyone is doing it and I have sure been in full swing around here.
The weather has been perfect for open windows,
cleaning and decluttering,
adding spring touches around the house,
and being outdoors in the garden.
This is such a beautiful time of year!
