Life Lately!

 It's already been a week since my last post! Life sure has a way of getting away from me. We spent most of the past week in North Carolina grieving over my grandmother's life. It's hard to be sad because she lived 90 (almost 91) years but it is still sad to lose a member of your family especially a grandmother. My Mamaw always had a way of making me feel special and could remember the details of every important life event. Evie took the news of Mamaw's death well. "Oh no, I forgot to kiss her." That's okay, Evie - send her a kiss now. "Now, that's not going to work."

We arrived back in Nashville late Thursday after taking the scenic route home. It seemed like a good day to visit the Sunsphere in Knoxville and enjoy a leisurely lunch on the river. I could not help but think while eating lunch that these crazy days are going to be what I long for as life speeds up even more as our children grow up. It was fun to see them so excited about being high in the sky, feeding birds at lunch and even playing on the playground.

Saturday was the perfect day for our annual pumpkin patch visit. Both kids had a ball although Henry was super cranky on the way home. Toddlers have a way of letting everyone know their feelings!

Carl and I had a date night on Saturday. It was during a Clemson game so we ended up at Wild Wing. Not my favorite but he loves it!  We just enjoyed being kid free for a bit and knowing that our kids were happy as clams with Taylor.

Everyone slept in this morning and we barely made it to church on time. Evie was annoyed that I would not allow her to wear the clinking shell necklaces that Carl made for her yesterday. She moved on quickly when she found out that Krispy Kreme was on the agenda after church.

We spent the afternoon relaxing around the house catching up on laundry and running a few errands. Looking forward to one more day of fall break and then starting a normal week! Hope y'all had a terrific weekend.


  1. So sorry about your grandmother, Jennifer. I love Henry in the first picture.

  2. Again, my sympathies for you, your mom and the rest of the family on your loss. So thankful you and the kids got to see her on your last visit back home. Love Evie in her pumpkin shirt, denim skirt and boots. Sweet and sassy rolled in to one.
