Pinterest invites

If you haven't joined Pinterest you really should.  I am apart of the ever growing HUGE fan club. 
 I must warn you, it is immediately addicting and there will soon be a meetings for addicts suffering from Pinterest binges.   
So on that note, if you haven't spread yourself too thin following blogs, facebooking, tweeting, surfing, shopping, emailing, etc.  
Then by all means join the club and start pinning until your little heart's content. 

If you would like to join and haven't been given an account yet, I have a present for you!   
I am allowed to invite 6 friends from my account!  
So if you would like to join Pinterest or just check it out, leave a comment with your email and I will send you an invite to join! :) 
We can follow each others Pinterest accounts like real internet friends do. :0)
Happy Pinning blog friends 

5 years and many more....

Long over due update, but I can still say, 'Aaaahhhhh.... Deep breath'.  That was a much needed vacation.  Before I go on, I have to thank my sister Katie and brother-in-law Tim for loving Luke and taking such good care of him while we were away.

Ok let's get down to the FUN that took place whilst on our very southern vacation in 
Savannah Georgia.

Our beautiful Bed and Breakfast

My favorite store in Savannah
 Local tip- Paula Deen is often seen frequenting this shop :0)
Just a few pics from inside the store 
clear chairs = beautiful

Hello beautiful table.  Do you want to live at my house?

Honey tasting with my honey. 
 Did you know there were so many different kinds of honey?

We spent an entire day at the beach at Tybee Island

Miss Paula Deen herself just like I always picture her in my head.

We went to her restaurant and to be honest.... disappointing :(.  Oh well, that was the only disappointing part of the whole trip.  So we're still smiling Paula.... don't worry.

A midnight Pedi Cab ride, why not?

Just resting in the garden....

Savannah sites.....

Moss covered live oaks.  GORGEOUS!

Last stop, Atlanta.
Anniversary wine and view.
and we couldn't leave without stopping at our favorite store

We got out spending less than 100 bucks.  And that's why we love you, Ikea!

Such a great trip with my sweet husband of 5 years!
Here is to another 5, babe!  
I'm so glad I have you.

Dear Luke, 12 months

It's hard to believe this was going on 1 year ago today!  I've found myself thinking a lot about what was happening this time last year.  When you were born, the cord was wrapped around your neck.  We waited and waited for you to cry for what seemed like an eternity.  When I heard you cry for the first time an incredible sense of relief and gratefulness swept over me.  I thank God for you every single day, Luke. We know how lucky we are to have you.  You are a beautiful, healthy, sweet baby boy.
I have realized what a privilege it has been to be home with you this year.  What a delight it has been to spend these precious and fleeting moments with you.  I have been able to watch every change, every new development, and have been there for most every smile.  My heart is so full with joy over you.
It's amazing to see how much you have grown this last month.  I'm pretty sure you have gained another pound as your non-picky pallet continues to expand.  You've gone from a rather quiet baby to a big talker.  We've taken quite a few road trips this month and you've kept yourself busy talking to yourself for at least an hour each time.  Your only understandable words are Hi, da da, and Mom.  Yes, you call me Mom. Not mama, not ma, it's a very clear mom.  You love to play with blocks, push anything across the floor, and of corse eat.  You are such an explorer.  You are curious about each button, speck on the floor, corner of a room, and pretty much any space or object that is in a 50 foot radius of you.  You have no fear and in fact, love it when we hide around a corner and jump out to scare you.  Your fearlessness can be a great quality Luke, but when it comes to jumping off our bed or going face first down the stairs, we'll be forced to reign it in to keep you safe.  You understand a lot of words and are getting better at obeying the 1st time when we tell you no.  You love to wear your sun glasses out and especially love all the attention it gets you walking from the parking lot into the grocery store.  It's incredible how quickly you went from taking 1 to 2 steps to toddling around the house.  There are now more things to be baby proofed!

You have given us more love than your Dad and I ever expected.  We look forward to seeing how the Lord develops your personality and character.  We pray your sweet spirit, curiosity, independence, and determination remain as you continue to change and grow.  We can't imagine life without you and we always want you to know how much you are LOVED.  Happy 1st Birthday Luke!
I love you so much!

Sweet Cheeks

Luke, 11 months 8 days

Oh, it is ON!

Nothing like summer to kick-off backyard games into full competitive gear!  Eric and I have, shall we say, a "healthy" competitive spirit when it comes to all games.  We've found it best (for our marriage) to play on the same team instead of on opposing teams.  In fact on our honeymoon, we became the International Bocce Ball champions of Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.  Our trophy?  Well that was a genuine bottle of Dominican rum and an ink-jet-printed-plastic-framed certificate.  The rum still sits in the cupboard to this day... 
we're quite proud.


Anyone else love these crazy games as much as Eric and I do? I'm warming up my tossing arm and heading out tonight with hopes of winning a Frisbee cup tourney.  Hope y'all get out there and enjoy all the crazy home-made ridiculous backyard games this summer.  You know we will be!
