Let’s catch up!

July 10, 2017

It feels like it’s been so long since I’ve journaled in this space. I found myself with a few free minutes this evening, thanks to Christian on bedtime duty tonight (thanks, babe!). I thought about doing one of those “If we were having coffee” kind of posts (I love reading those) but the truth? I’m drinking wine right now so it just felt like a lie. 😉 Life these days feels like it’s moving awesomely and scarily fast. And some…

It’s time.

November 28, 2016

Did today sneak up really fast for anyone else? Whoa! And um, anyone else going through dessert and carb and wine withdrawal? Like, can we just take some naps for a few days or something? Post-thanksgiving is rough! ha! Guys, I’ll tell ya right now – IT’S TIME. Like, bring on all things Christmas over here, let’s do it. I’m talking full ON, let’s get obnoxious. We got our tree yesterday and I’ll start the decorating this week, along with…

Bigger 2016 Crew EG recap Our Home The Road to Love

A look back: my year in three.

September 28, 2016

This year is not over, no, but truthfully it won’t be long until we’re ringing in 2017. Not that I’m rushing it – I have loved 2016 for so many reasons (more on all of that in a few months). Today’s #blogtoberchallenge asked us to pick the top five pictures that illustrate our 2016 so far and I thought I’d do a version of that but with a series of pictures per three of my top picks. Of course, I…

Friday Favorites

July 29, 2016

Happy Friday!! Did anyone else have a crazy week? Holy cow, mine was just insane. Between dog grooming appointments and bathroom painting and getting our car windshield replaced (how can a tiny rock do so much damage, that’s what I want to know) and one of my bffs bringing her firstborn babe into the world (!!!) and cleaning and laundry and packing (because yes, we are out of town again!) – there wasn’t much time for blogging and writing. While…

A Place to Reset

June 6, 2016

I’m getting a late start on this Monday, holy cow, but you know what? Sometimes that’s just the way the day shakes and I’m remembering that we need to extend ourselves a bit of grace. Mondays are hard enough so despite waking up late and having a million things to do today, I’m aiming to tackle it all with a grateful heart. Who’s with me? Do any of you have a place you go to when you just need to…

The Lake

May 31, 2016

Did everyone have a nice long weekend?! I think every year for the last 5 years, Christian and I always kind of forget about the potential of epicness one can have over Memorial Day weekend. Every year we ask ourselves why the heck we didn’t plan ahead and take the weekend to go to The Lake. (We don’t have a lake but I really want one that we can claim as ours so when people are like, “What did you…

Blogger Love Linkup EG recap

Dear Ember Grey readers… (xoxo)

December 11, 2015

Friday! We made it. It’s going to be 75 here in Nashville this weekend which highly confuses this former Chicagoan’s brain. How am I to feel Christmasy when I’m applying sunscreen and wearing a t-shirt?! (Alright I guess it’s not that bad.) We still haven’t finished decorating our house and poor Fred is standing in our living room without any lights or ornaments or anything. He’s just a big green tree and he’s beautiful but I can’t wait to Christmas him up 😉…

I went almost the entire day yesterday thinking it was Wednesday. It wasn’t until later in the evening I realized that no, it was in fact Thursday. So this Friday is especially exciting for me, considering it CAME OUT OF NOWHERE. Let’s catch up a bit, shall we? Right after we got back from Thanksgiving, X so lovingly gave me his cold and I’ve been as sick as a dog this whole week. I finally ventured out yesterday (which was Thursday,…

I am fall (and other totally random & important information)

September 4, 2015

Whoa, Friday! We finally made it, I wasn’t sure I would. So much has happened this week I really feel like I need another Currently post just to update you all. But how about I share just a few things today, mkay? ONE: Really important- I caved and bought Pumpkin Spice coffee creamer and now I’m fall. Truly, if a person could become a season, I would be fall right now. And yes it may still be 95 degrees out,…

Blogger Love Linkup celebration EG recap


July 3, 2015

Happy holiday weekend! I hope most of you are out of work already and celebrating?! Christian flies home today and my parents are on their way down to Nashville to spend a long weekend with us – and wouldn’t you know we’re currently being blasted with the worst thunderstorms we’ve had since moving here! I’m praying the storms somehow miraculously go elsewhere so we’re not just left with beer and boardgames, but either way the party must go on, because…
