Wow, I can't believe I haven't posted since February!! What have I been doing? I am not really sure...

Well, my brother, Dylan, and his fiance, Leigh Anne, were married this past Saturday. Woo hoo to them! They also just bought the cutest little house, in the downtown area of town. It was built in the 1920's and it is so sweet!

Matt and Sara of Live Lightly were here from Tuesday through Saturday. Oooooh, that was amazing. They get their own post, there is just too much wonderfulness to share from their visit.

Next Saturday, March 29th, is my first 5K road race! You might remember that running a race was one of the items I listed as "things to do before I die". I am so, so excited about this event. I have been mostly consistent with my training schedule. I can't tell you how (surprisingly) enjoyable running has turned out to be. It has been so fun to see a goal down the road (increasing my running time from 0 to 30 minutes), thinking it impossible to achieve, then slowly, but surely, reaching it. It is amazing to physically push yourself, and to be rewarded. I will keep you posted on the outcome of the race. This being my first race, I only have two (small) goals. 1. FINISH. 2. Don't walk any of it. :)

Our bathroom is almost finished. Of course, it has been "almost finished" for about three weeks now! I will post pictures as soon as the last little details are finished up. I really like it. I haven't soaked in my claw foot tub yet, but I have enjoyed the "shower that you can take a stroll in", as Matt says. :)

Other than that, I guess I have just been keeping busy with the regular stuff of life. A little homeschooling, lots of diaper changes, dish washing, and laundry. Visiting with friends, eating with family, enjoying the beauty of South GA in springtime. I radically changed my diet about ten days ago, so that has been consuming a lot of time (and a LOT of veggies!). We have planted lettuce and spinach in our new square foot gardens, and are excited to see them popping up. Caedmon has been busy with a lemonade stand, right outside our door. This venture has been more successful than his produce stand, with less overhead. :)

So, that is about it with me. I hope to be more regular with my blogging again. I miss this outlet when I am away.

    Sounds like life has been fun! Congrats to the brother. Good luck on the run. Go take a soak and I've got to read up on the raw diet thing.... I've got another blogger friend that is doing it, to. You might like to check her out at:

  4. Missed you!! I have been wondering where you have been!
    So you gave into the raw foody life?? :) We enjoy our green smoothies here and adding more raw goods, but we'll never go all the way :)
    I can't wait to see photos of your new square foot gardens. And of course, your bathroom!
    Glad you are back!
