My Current Obsession: Fonts

Recently, I've become obsessed with...fonts. I can't help it. I notice and recognize the typeface of branding all the time. I notice when the font that is used for Coca-Cola is ripped off and will search every inch of the internet for the name of a particular font I saw on someone's website. It's ridiculous I know. But I can't help it. I love design and the principles of branding. (I'm not very good at it yet - but I'm trying to learn the best I can!) I am currently obsessed with these:

La Portenia:




Metroscript:

No One Can Believe it SNOWED in GEORGIA!

So for the first time in almost 2 decades - there was, not just flurries, but HALF A FOOT OF SNOW in our front yard! AHH! I can't even explain the levels of excitement at our house! When it started snowing, we were falling all over ourselves to get home to see how Scout would react. (I really don't mean to sound like some crazy-dog mother or something, but I do have a fondness in my soul for my girl - despite her fuzzy, sheding features.) So - back to the point. We were excited and spent the better part of the evening playing fetch with snowballs that disappear when they hit the ground - which by the way is hilarious to watch your dog search and search for that ball. Priceless really. Go ahead and prepare yourself for lots of pictures of her. (And for some reason - I just think snow in black and white is so beautiful...I can't stop!)

This is classic Scout. :)

But really - the snow here was beautiful. See for yourself.


On Saturday morning, we met Daryl's parents, his sister Heather,
80-something year old Grandma and some good friends of ours with little kids for a sledding bonaza!
We had an absolute BLAST!

This is Casey...don't you just wanna eat her up!?


And here is Quinn...(above with his beautiful mom Tammy)

and this...this...is Daryl and Heather with his casted arm from his surgery!
We had to wrap it in plastic wrap so it wouldn't get wet in the snow.
But doesn't it kinda look like a hoagie? :) It makes me laugh every time I see it!

And introducing Grandma Margie Reid to the blog...
She was having so much fun! Doesn't she look so happy! We just love her...

Towards the end of the excursion, Davy and Daryl decided to build a ramp of snow to see how much "air" they could get. Pretty much all the adults missed the ramp the first two or three times they tried, but the kids hit it every time! Here is Daryl's successful run...

and did I mention that I LOVE SNOW...
and finally...I like to call this piece - watch Davy bite it.


All the snow is now melted and it's raining - AGAIN. But it was fun while it lasted!

Guy + Mellie Wren in the AUG

They have the sweetest love. It's so beautiful to see two people so well matched.

Our friends, Guy and Mellie Wren, who were just married a few months ago (4 to be exact!) are visiting here in Augusta FOR FIVE WEEKS. We hadn't been able to hang out with them since they got here a few weeks ago. So we took this opportunity to hang out with great friends and do what we love - take pictures! Really, we just exploited them to death because they are so willing and so good looking :)! And here are the results. Stunning.

Mellie Wren - you are simply GORGEOUS!

This is my favorite from the day..how hot is that?

Are you kidding me with all the hotness in this post?? I just love these two.
Its' just a bonus that they make me look good! :)
HAPPY MONDAY!

Coming Soon...

Guy and Mellie Wren hit Augusta...


and SNOW DAY IN GEORGIA!

Don't be alarmed by the appearance of our creation - she is not a snowman. She is a "Sno-Ho." Complete with tin foil grill.

It's okay for you to be jealous of our awesomeness.

Mighty Life List

A goal: "The place designated as the end of a race or journey."

We have recently been faced with death in our family, and when I get to thinking about these ones, I think - look at all they accomplished in thier short journey. They didn't do amazing things by this worlds standards, but they lived simply and happily. And they raised beautiful families, loved deeply, and took care to be a friend to all who needed them. And those are the things that really matter. I sat thinking about these things and I thought I'd really like to have a little reminder of what I'm accomplishing and what it means to really live. It's the simple things. The small, seemingly insignificant things. It's taking care of the people I love and the things that matter to me.


So I've been inspired to write down My Mighty Life List. <---Click on it to see the list! Or as some would call it, a Bucket List. I've written down 50 things so far, but I hope to increase the list as time passes. When I look back on them in 10 years, I'm sure I'll believe that they were silly and I will have much more "grown up" goals for my life...but until then, these were my goals at 25. That's the beauty of a life list. It can change. And I know that some of these things I won't be able to gauge whether or not I have accomplished them, but I can continually work though them.

It's all in the little things...

excited about pioneering.
worried about $$$$.
reading the bible.
creating a picture wall.
loving my pup.
wondering how to stay on a schedule.
craving simplicity.
listening to mumford+sons.
thankful for forgiveness.
praying for less anxiety.
watching less tv.

who we are...

who we are...
