What's missing...

My refrigerator reminds me of what is missing....

Girl's Day Out...again

yes I do believe we are making a habit of this... downtown girls!
Off to the Children's Museum to explore Peru this month. Izzy had to bring our friend Alpaca with us. He is originally from Huanaco, Peru...a gift from our sweet friends The Smiths.
Then we just had to stop at Paolo's for gelato...umm! Lemon gelato..oh my!

Happy Father's the best dad in the world


I loved to read Edgar Allan Poe in school. You know when you're a moody teenager he seems to fit the bill for odd literature that somehow sums up how you're feeling... misunderstood! Who understands teenagers...who understands Poe? Well, I've had to recently give my girls a taste of Poe and I have to say they don't "get" him. In fact, Izzy was a little disturbed by his poetry. Why in the world would I be introducing my girls to Poe at such a young age you ask? Well, our new library is the Edgar Allan Poe library on Sullivan's Island and he is all over it. Ravens on the wall...etc. The library is housed in a former Spanish-American War four-gun battery. Poe was stationed here as a private in the Army in 1826-1827. He used Sullivan's Island as the setting for his famous story "The Gold Bug". It's definitely an unusual use of a former military facility and my girls LOVE it. Can't say that they LOVE Poe yet though. Maybe they never will...we'll see.




Remember Jacks? I love Jacks. The only thing is they are huge now. I guess the little metal ones were a choking hazard. It's funny how my generation was apparently the guinea pigs because everything for my kiddos is much safer : )

This is how we pass the time while getting "leggie" fixed for the third time this week...

poor leggie : (

The artist of Isle of Palms

This boy...

I don't always have the words to express how I feel about this little guy. Sometimes because I'm overwhelmed with emotion for him....and sometimes,  well sometimes he's a bit naughty and I find myself speechless then too !


and I gotta say...he's pretty stinkin cute !

The beach

The beach has always brought us such joy.  Just being there stirs something in us.  It reminds me that He created this for His glory and by His grace I get to enjoy this. Wow!  His blessings abound....

We discover His creatures daily

and we bask in the glow of His goodness

some of us appreciate it a little differently : )
It's still a treasure to all of us...


Proud to be her Momma....can't take any credit though. She is all HIS!

Beach livin...

We moved on June 1st. I guess that explains where I've been and why I've not blogged. I'm completely in love with Isle of Palms and I'm completely over moving! Prayin that we are here for a LONG time : )

 We prayed to be closer to the beach and closer to Rob's work....and Ephesians 3:20-21 always came to mind when we did; however, we really didn't think we'd be a block from the beach.
That is what I call "immeasurably more"... for sure!
So what do I love most....
Well other than the beach itself, I absolutely love that I don't have to drive to the beach. I just load up the beach cart and roll...
and Josiah rolls too : )
and I absolutely LOVE having an outdoor shower...
I never dreamed there would be a day that I wouldn't have sand in my car or my house. 
God is amazing!
