About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Our Trip to SC, TN, & NC

Our summer vacation consisted of making a trip to South Carolina and Tennessee last week.  We left on a Thursday morning and flew back the following Friday night.  It was Bradley and Savannah's first commercial plane ride and they both did very well.  It was so great seeing all our friends and being able to catch up right where we left off.  A huge thanks to all of you who went out of your way to meet up with us!  Our trip was also a good closure for Mike since he barely had time to say goodbye to Greenville before his work whisked him away to training in St. Louis.  A great trip but we were so excited to come back home and for Maine to really feel like home!

Bradley absolutely loved every minute of the plane ride.  Savannah kept us busy but at least there was no screaming and she stayed healthy enough despite the millions of germs surrounding her.

We filled up on Southern comfort food all week.  Our bodies didn't know how to handle all that fried chicken and sweet tea!  Savannah had her first waffle fry from Chick-fil-A, 
Mike was a happy guy getting his custard from Culvers, Bradley was introduced to Zaxby's chicken wings & fried pickles, and I was super happy to get my chicken & dumplings with mashed potatoes and green beans!

Our favorite part of the trip was obviously catching up with friends and family and introducing them all to Savannah.  For the amount of people she was passed around to, I think she handled herself very well and was a good sport!  Bradley was thrilled with having so many kids and cousins to play with every single day.

We managed to get in a little bit of family time during our busy schedule.  The Greenville Zoo, Pool time at the hotel, and miniature golf!

 The Smoky Mountains will always be a beautiful part of my life.
