to The Mr.:  Happy Father’s Day!!!

come home soon, we miss you.

PS- it is worth noting that some of my most favorite pictures of Jovie are included in this set.


so much to say

June 3, 2014

Good morning!  and Good May & June.  WOOPS.

in the wonderful words of Dave Matthews, i do have so much to say.  which is likely why i have been completely silent here because there’s just too much to say and think.

so instead of boring you with type, i will fill this little void with some pictures.  which, as we know- each picture is worth so much to say……

yes, it's easter. note the long sleeves

that hotdog pretty much changed the course of our last Braves game being fun and wonderful to go to.  because THEN, we plied her with food.  THIS time, she was too full.  and, she doesn’t like cracker jacks (???) so she was pretty bored.

Then there was THIS:

i am sad to say i missed the last day of school.  jovie was having a blast with daddy and i was having a blast with becky in charleston!!  then becky came here with ansley and everyone had a blast!  a fun memorial day party with lotsa friends led to a great 2 day visit with them.  PLUS there was her first sleepover!! (2 sleepovers, Mommy!)

0010that first night, as expected, had a coupla little girls coming downstairs for one reason or another.  the next night, however, it was much smoother.  maybe being at the pool from 10am – 4pm had a little something to do with that!

The Mr. built this swing & it was a huge hit at the party and since!

i do have several more pix i’d love to share, but i haven’t uploaded them from my phone.  they would include a very chilly morning at field day, some more of these & a great one of Jovie & Ansley saying goodbye.

Maybe later.


in the mood for pictures

June 1, 2013

we interrupt my next blog post about Florida to do some looking back at pictures.

i love these retrospectives.  i hate them, too.  and since it’s june 1st, i’m beginning my annual projects with jovie so i’m not so overwhelmed when it comes time to her birthday (gasp!)  which is making me look at lots of pictures;  though these i have already remembered about.

here’s one i wanted to post way back at easter.  because without intending it, i caught the same picture:

hey, look! they were both yellow eggs, too.

then there are the pictures we took at High Falls:

empty

February 6, 2013

sorry y’all.  i got nothin’.  i’ve been wracking my brain for a few days, knowing i want to post.  i have almost 0 pictures since last post, and nothing is really going on.  day-to-day as normal for the most part.

well, except that we are sad that we had to remove one of our big trees from the yard.  the grand tree at the entrance. the maple that produced the little helicopters so that we could tell Jovie about the times Aunt Stacey would tell The Mr. to eat them and he could fly.  (he tried it.  it didn’t work)

the driveway now is empty.

gosh, we miss this tree:

we sorely miss you, tree.

okay, i just spent entirely too long trying to find any recent pictures of antics in/near the tree.  i came up empty again.

jovie’s already trying to think of another place where we can hide the classroom easter eggs we always bring home each year.  we always have a lot of fun having our own egg hunt for a week or so afterwards.

it was well-loved.
