Barrington Gifts Sale


Happiest of Mondays to you!!  We are having the best fall weather right now, well its a little cold today, and the leaf peeping is truly the best its been in years.  This weekend was so fun ... with lots of adventure and the debut of my favorite new crossbody bag.  This design is new for Barrington Gifts and I think its perfect.   Any time I can buy plaid and add a monogram is a good thing ... two reasons I love purchasing from Barrington Gifts.  Today is the last day for the Veterans Day sale which is 15% off the entire site which is the best sale of the year.  Since we both know I love all of my Barrington pieces I rounded them up today to share with you some great gift ideas to truly take advantage of this fabulous sale. 🎉

Gift Of Talent + Love


If you spotted my Instagram this morning than you know most of the story of this mug and its incredible creator, but I don't think one simple post is enough to give you all the details.  I can't do the details justice, but I am going to attempt to give you all I have.  This was one of the biggest blessings I received and when it came I truly did not understand all it would end up being and how bad things would get before I had a chance to gift the mugs and spread the love the love that was given to me.  Like I said, I am not sure I can do this justice ... but here goes my best effort.

All The Pie For Thanksgiving


When I think of my favorite Thanksgiving food I think I can break it down to just a few things; turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce .... and pie.  All the pie please and thank you.  After Thanksgiving dinner is passed and we have the opportunity to snack on leftovers for days I always choose the same plate ... a little turkey, too much stuffing, cranberry sauce and more pie.  I don't know what it is about pie that just makes it the best dessert choice for the entire month of November for me, but I am all truly all about the pie. Since my baking skills are slim at best I rely on buying all of my pies from Southern Baked Pie Company and they never, ever disappoint.  I used to be so much safer since all of their locations were further from our home, but the brand new location in Vinings being just minutes away is putting delicious homemade pies right at my finger tips.

And I am not upset about that one single bit.

12 Happies du Jour


Fall has been so pretty this year in Georgia.  The trees were really showing all of their stunning colors.  We had a really cold few days last week and I am hoping it has not put an end to the rest of our fall colors.  Some of the trees in the neighborhood are now just dropping their leaves in bulk ... but others are holding on.  We shall see.  I really do love a full fall with weeks of amazing temperatures and gorgeous leaf viewing.

A Month Of Giving

When we were still in the hospital I recall longing for the time when we would be home and things would be "normal" again.  He would be getting better every day and I would be sitting at my laptop daily writing away about things that inspired me.  It would feel so good to be home and healing and getting back to our "normal".

So, What Happened?


We have been home for three weeks now and it's been really good.  The first week was so hard and then we seemed to find a routine week 2 and now we are really feeling the comforts of home and family.  I do not think I have ever loved being home more ... it is just magic every single second.  Waking up in the morning and seeing him sleeping next to me is pure bliss and is only rivaled by holding his hand as I fall asleep each night.  Last week at our weekly surgeon check up the doctor said we could "begin to think about not walking on eggshells" and I literally exhaled.  It has been such a journey.

So, what happened?

Home Sweet Home


I can't believe I actually get to type those words, but yes we are home and have been since last Saturday late afternoon.  Even though the medical team had been talking about it for days before the moment that our surgeon said today is the day it was incredibly unreal.  We have spent the last week just trying to set a routine, get him stronger, sleep, relax, soak up our family, and try to settle into a new normal.  I can tell you sitting here a week later and it doesn't feel any more normal, but we are taking it one step at a time.
