On Saturday. A week after we signed the lease on the house. Yes, we got a house. No, we weren't originally planning to move so quickly. Yes, we are insane. A week to pack and move. I grew up in a military family. This shouldn't be too hard (I say while panicking). So, last week… Continue reading We’re Moving!
“The vacation we often need is freedom from our own mind.” -Jack Adam Weber Breaks. We all need them. So what better time to have one than right after the holidays?

“It’s only after you’ve stepped outside your comfort zone that you begin to change, grow, and transform.”― Roy T. Bennett Hey y'all.

“Ask not what you can do for your country. Ask what’s for lunch.” ― Orson Welles OH man, y'all. We just got back from St. Augustine and I'm pretty sure I'm feeling the vacation weight.

“I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.” —Susan Sontag Oh man, I am so sorry. Truly. I've been absent, and it's solely because we've settled into a routine. Work. Sleep. Sometimes Eat.

"Quality of life actually begins at home - it's in your street, around your community." -Charles Kennedy Fridays N Duluth Fun We moved into Duluth, GA three years ago.
