Athens Bound ...

I am off to Athens today with The Southern C for their Fall Retreat.  I am beyond excited for many reasons.  I love my Southern C community and how it has help me grow and change in the six plus years I have been attending.  I love the people and their brands and I love learning from there.  And last, but not least, I love adventure.  I hope you will follow along as we settle into this darling college town and eat, shop, and learn. 


Monday Thoughts ... (+ TSC Prep)

I am really thankful for a new week.  The last month was hard and having my sweet father in law in hospice broke my heart.  He died peacefully in his sleep early Tuesday morning and I was incredibly thankful he was no longer hurting.  He deserved the best as he always gave his best.  Now we just have to remember him and his hard work and his legacy each and every day.  I woke up this morning feeling so much lighter and more focused than I have in a month.  I think the worry of him hurting was truly killing me and this morning I was thinking of him the way we all knew him best and it brought light and a spring to my day.  


Jenna's Yellow Jeep

I know you loved yesterday's post ... the emails I got were just incredible.  Jenna Shotmeyer's story is truly magical and so very inspiring. I told you today I would share the piece she designed for me and today here we are. This yellow Jeep is so very me.  It is filled with all sorts of estate sale finds and would totally be me driving home if we still owned our Jeep.  It will happen again, I just know it.  A yellow Jeep is in our future. If you are not sure what a yellow Jeep means to our family you can read that story here


Introducing Jenna Shotmeyer ...

I have such an amazing artist and woman to share with you today.  I think I connected with the darling Jenna Shotmeyer the second she slid into my dms.  There is something about her art you just fall in love with and then she begins to share her life and you are completely sunk.  Jenna is young but in many ways she has already lived two lives and does her best to truly make the most of every single day.  She is wise and thoughtful. Her life has already experienced great trauma but what she has done with it is highly inspiring.  Her art shows her love for the coast, for life, and the way she seems objects and places we know and love is magical.  


Lloyd Oliver Minear

We lost my precious father in law yesterday.  He was the best man I have ever known only second to my own father.  He was quiet and strong.  He was dedicated and faithful. He was an excellent husband and father and worked hard at every single thing he did.  He was precious and loving and left me little notes on post its.  He was always with a smile and always required a two arm hug.  As my husband's best friend told me the other day ... losing him will be the end of an era ... and she was correct. 


More Fall Sale

We both know that I love J.Crew.  One of my top desired collaborations is with this incredible brand.  I have been wearing J.Crew longer than I can even recall, and I gravitate toward the classic prep with a twist clothing they sell.  I got on the site yesterday to pull an image for an outfit board and noticed they were having a sale and a fantastic one, so I immediately placed two orders.  You can save up to $100 on an order of $250 or more, so if your order is larger than that I would suggest making two orders to benefit the most.  I snagged a dress (seen above) , two shirts, a pair of darling shoes, and a pair of glasses and received $200 off.  I am telling you, do not miss out!  


Let's Prep For Fall ...

Since our Georgia weather will not be above 80 degrees, let's get prepped for fall.  I found some darling things for your house, a sweatshirt or two you can cozy up in, and some darling earrings.  The first day of fall is officially 4 days away ... will you be ready?


Gameday Dress ...

It's college football season ... which means a few things.  One Saturday's in the south with SEC football is huge.  Second, college football means tailgates and games.  And lastly, that means game day outfits.  For all from the tiny to older crowd is very serious about what they do and what they wear on game day. We love to find things that are comfortable and cute, and we hoard gameday clothes. I was absolutely thrilled when Never A Wallflower reached out to ask if they could send me one of their Game Day Dresses.  I think I said yes in ALL CAPS


The 'Easiest" Cheese Board

Since Mandy Rye created her Build Your Own Cheese + Charcuterie Board I have wanted it.  It is such a great piece, its long and its marked with for the placement for cheese (and which kinds), meats, vehicles (for your cheese and meat), nuts, fruit, and extras.  Basically ... it's a fail safe way to create a fantastic charcuterie board.  A week or so ago I took advantage of Waiting On Martha Home's buy more, save more sale and snagged the board and a number of other amazing things to be able to create amazing boards all fall.  I immediately came home and gathered all of my favorite cheeses + fruits and extras and put together a small, but delicious dinner for us.  I added a slice of pie for dessert (I am doing my best to lean all the way into fall) and it was the easiest, and best dinner outside for the four of us.  


Monday Thoughts ( + The Lilly Sale) ...

Another great weekend on the books, I am truly loving taking time off of social media and truly just relaxing, organizing, and spending time with my family on the weekend.  This will now be a permanent thing, which I love.  Not that I wasn't all in with family before, but somehow I felt like I needed to document weekends, which was truly silly.  Stepping away from my phone on the weekends has been a gift and one I will keep. If you haven't tried it I highly suggest it.  So refreshing.  I also have now set aside Sundays to regroup around the house and organize for the week and the anxiety I have had for years on Mondays is slowly fading away.  I think we have found the recipe for a great week over here. I highly recommend it. 


Citrus Garden Obsession

I have been in love with Schumacher's Citrus Garden pattern since the moment it was released.  I think it is just the most perfect wallpaper, and reminds me so very much of my childhood in Florida. As a child my grandfather would drive through citrus groves to inspect fruit as part of his business.  We played in the groves, we listened to music in high school at grove parties (probably a bad idea) and since they were literally everywhere in central Florida a citrus grove is one of my favorite sights. I have no idea where I will use this pattern or where it will go, but mark my words ... I will absolutely have a space in my home with something using Citrus Garden. 


Welcome, September!!

Yep, September is really here.  I think for the first few days, before Labor Day, I was like ... it is coming and now that the long weekend is gone and I have flipped my calendar, it is really here.  August was so long and so full I felt like it was going to last forever.  But ... the weather already feels a little different, so it is time to embrace it and invite the upcoming fall in for coffee and a scone. 😉


LDW Sales ...

Happy long weekend ... and the last long weekend of summer. #sigh I was checking my favorite retailers for sales since I seem to have some carts filled and found some amazing ones to share, so the list I shop is below.  I have also included every single thing that is currently in my cart and most of what I have pulled as ideas for outfits for fall.  There are some darling items coming out, and I am here for the cute! All of the items below are part of the sales I have listed for you, so nothing is full price.
