Sprinkling Amanda

"The girls" gathered recently to "sprinkle" one of our own, my sweet, sweet friend, Amanda, who is expecting her second baby, a little GIRL (yay, PINK!) in April. We could not NOT celebrate, so we all gathered at Village Tavern in Alpharetta for lunch and then went for some much-needed pampering at a local nail spa. It was fabulous to have kid-free time to catch up with some of my oldest and dearest friends. I treasure this group of girls so much and I am so glad that I have them in my life - even all these years later. There's just nothing quite like a group of trusted, loved, and ridiculously smart, successful, beautiful women who know ALL your secrets (and love you in spite of them!). Thanks, girls, for yet another wonderful day! I think we may have a wonderful weekend in store... gonna have to get on that one.

Sweet Little Moments

You know, I never forget how blessed I am to be married to my husband and to be the mama to these two precious babies. The other night I was cooking dinner and Caroline and Travis were on the deck having a little alone time. I couldn't resist taking this picture... saving the moment forever. And, of course, I also had to get a shot of Little Miss Emily gazing out the window dreaming of the day she is old enough to join them :) Sweet thang.
