Sorry it’s been quiet around here for a minute. Earlier this year, our family went through some really hard days with a serious illness. We’re forever grateful for all the prayers and kindness- thankfully, all is well now.
As soon as my beloved husband and I got a minute to exhale, we made the decision- after 34 years in South Carolina, to move our whole life to Flat Rock, North Carolina! I mean, why not?
The NC mountains have always been our happy place, but the most fun part about the move will be living super close to (2/3 of) our kids and grand people.
Marie Kondo-ing (brutally determining what stays and what goes) a lifetime of possessions has revealed a few things. The 1950’s Baptist Church recipe book, filled with cream of everything soup & crushed Ritz crackers drenched in “oleo” recipes…not going.
But, this tiny precious chair, lovingly hand-painted by a dear friend, is absolutely making the trip!
The colossal move ahead of us has shone a bright light on what really matters most. For us, faith, family, friends. (and fun furniture)
The scary medical season reminded me to hold my favorite humans a little closer, and tell them I love them- a lot.
What matters most to you?
If it’s your family and friends- I want to encourage you to let them know! I’ll go first. I’m thankful for you, and want you to know You Matter!
Can’t wait to get back to you soon with updates for Uncrushed (my newest book), also to tell you about some friends’ phenomenal books that are launching in the next couple weeks!! I’m talking about you, Jessye WIlden and Michelle Medlock Adams!!
