still celebrating

We had a wonderful Christmas with Aaron's family in Chattanooga, TN. I couldn't believe it, but we had a very white Christmas! This was my first white Christmas, and I just kept feeling like I was in the movies. There were moments that I was singing, David Gray's "Slow Motion" in my head. If you need to.. sing along as you get to see a sample of our wonderful Christmas. "life in slow motion, somehow it don't seem real, snowflakes are falling, I'll catch them in my hand..."
 I built a little Lego house for this man... I was probably more into than Asher.
 He finally woke up to open presents!
 White Christmas! Mark and I made a snowman. I would have made Christi so proud!
 He (Leon) is taller than me! Aaron is wearing an Ole Miss santa hat, which he wore all day!
Well, I had no boots so I tied grocery bags around my running shoes. Worked like a charm. You can sort of see Biscotti in the back she had way too much fun in the snow. She loves it!
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

i love a card

Oh how I love Christmas! I have been listening to Pandora’s “Swingin’ Christmas station for almost 10 days straight now. I made Biscotti on Saturday, Christmas parties are happening, I’ve been wrapping like crazy, and my hands are old lady dry! Nothing says Christmas quite like that.
I love Christmas cards, love receiving them, love giving them, love displaying them. However, displaying has been a little more challenging this year. I couldn’t find anywhere to display them. I looked through some magazines and stole this great idea.
I put this little display in our window that looks through our Kitchen to the Den. It has been great seeing many of your faces as I wash dishes. Just thought I would share this idea if you need a way to display those fun photo cards you receive at Christmas. Mine has ornaments tied to the bottom... I think that looks better that way :). Merry Christmas, and hope you can also enjoy these 2 pictures from our recent YL Christmas party this year!

new free music for your wednesday

This weekend was so great. Got to see Martha run her first marathon… which she totally dominated and I was able to jump in and run half of it with her. I know she’ll put up some of her pictures soon, so be on the look out of her crossing the finish line! Also, had the joy of seeing some of my best friends since middle school and college… shout out MM, KT, & Lindz. Eventually, I’ll get those pictures up too.
Anyway, it is true another Free Music Wednesday! I got an e-mail last week about this artist. So, I saved it to share with you today, and then Linnae sent it to me too. Apparently Joe Purdy is spreading like wildfire! Join me and download THIS free album now. You’ll thank me later. Ok, your welcome.

i was runnin' in memphis

I’m so thrilled that I’ll be heading to Memphis today. Martha will be running her first full Marathon tomorrow, and I’ll be jumping in to run the 2nd half with her. Make sure you wish her lots of love and luck! I love all of the excitement of race season. Last week I was running in Georgia this week Tennessee! My little Garmin has had some fun mapping my runs this year…California, Georgia, Louisiana (of course), New York, Texas, & Tennessee. Can’t wait to visit friends and enjoy the weekend!

new free music wednesday

A few months ago my sweet friend Linnae came and visited me. She shared this band with me and I have been hooked ever since. This duo is great for driving, cooking, sitting by the fire, or a cool crisp run. Enjoy this free download of some Christmas songs that they have just released. The song Poison & Wine was the song that just made me really enjoy them. So here they are. I present to you… The Civil Wars.
