touch of summer

We have some cubby sized wall cutouts as you go upstairs in our house and I'm always at a loss as to what should go in them. I've used the infamous gold letters from Hobby Lobby for some front door projects before and thought maybe I could use it again to add a touch of summer to the house.  I like how it turned out and the added texture is nice. All you need is some rope, your hot glue gun and a large gold letter from Hobby Lobby.

celebrate dad

Dads are so special aren't they? I know mine is and I am so very thankful for his leadership, laughter, guidance, generosity, patience (wish that trait had passed on to me) and most importantly love. I love you Dad.

I also have the chance to see the sweet bond between a daughter and her daddy with Paul and Georgia. Paul, you are a great dad to our little girl. I wondered how you would handle having a girl, but you couldn't be more cut out for it. You embrace the cute clothes, the bows, the songs and dancing, princesses and painting toe nails. You enjoy those sweet kisses from Georgia too. I love you. Happy Father's Day!

While at the beach I spotted a little girl wearing this bonnet and had to ask her mother where it was from. She got it at the The Beaufort Bonnet Company. How precious are these bonnets?!? If Georgia was still in the baby phase I would really be tempted to buy one of these. They have other cute items for kids too!

beach vacation

We just got back from a wonderful week at the beach! It was so much fun to watch Georgia play on the beach this year. She really enjoyed the water and sand. We would go out to the beach and she would just run and jump in the little pools that had formed. It was adorable. She loved spending the week with her cousins too. The cousins sang and danced, played in the ocean, took golf cart rides, made friends on the beach, watched Rio (at least 3 times that I know of:), ventured into Charleston for a carriage ride, visited Princess of Tides, took a water taxi over to Charleston and ate lots of yummy food. The pictures are all out of order, but here's a snapshot of our week. 

The best group shot we could get. 

Now back to the laundry...
