I love the cooler weather, I love the spirit of family, and I love the hustle and bustle of people as we get ready for holiday events. I’ve written about my reality lately, some big… Read More Month of Kindness
So. I’ve been a terrible blogger. It’s been a crazy summer. When I look back at it, I have a hard time quantifying what I did. We worked a lot. I went back to Las Cruces in April, July and September: in April to see our goddaughter, in July to visit family, and then again… Read More End of the Summer
Spring has FINALLY come to the south. I know I said that before, but I was tricked. We had what they call blackberry weather, when it warms up and then cools back down. We were in a freeze warning over this past weekend. Freeze! In April! In Georgia! A disgrace. Still, Josh and I braved… Read More Spring Bucket List
I love a new year. I’m one of those typical, cheesy people who really likes the New Year. It just represents so many wonderful things to me! It represents a fresh start and a whole year. It represents this idea of 365 opportunities. I’m also the type to really love looking back at 2017. And… Read More Goodbye 2017, Welcome 2018!

The older I get, the more I realize that most of my life lessons are just being re-learned in a new way as an adult. Like, in my sorority (Pi Beta Phi), we used to do this thing called “Sunshines and Dark Clouds”. Basically, it was a chance for people to talk about the good… Read More The Good, the Bad, and the Blog
It’s definitely beginning to feel a lot like Christmas in the J&J Household! Tell me if any of you guys have this issue. I am 100% Pro-Christmas. I love Christmas. I love Christmas music, decorations, trees, plans, events, all of it. My husband Josh is what you would normally call a Grinch (or I normally… Read More It’s Beginning to Feel a Lot Like…
It’s Monday! The best day of the week! Not really. At least, not for me! Mondays are always my longest days with work and some standing meetings I have. But at least it’s a chance to catch up on my emails! Silver lining, right? 😉 Monday after Thanksgiving break is especially hard, since for the… Read More Happy Monday!
10 points to Gryffindor if you caught the song reference in the title! So Josh and I LOVE to travel. Who doesn’t? But in 2016, we decided to make 2017 The Year of Traveling. And boy, did we travel. Together, Josh and I went on several big vacations this year: -Paris, France -Rome, Italy -Venice,… Read More Vacation, All I Ever Wanted
