My New Blogging Assistant

Nearly a year ago, a precious little baby girl changed my whole world when she made me a momma. Since she is nearly a toddler, I think she is old enough to become my new blogging assistant! I’ve been back and forth about whether to include my daughter in my blog. It really was a tough decision for me, considering…

Visiting the National Baseball Hall of Fame for Induction Weekend

This summer has been full of baseball opportunities for me! Ever since I’ve been a little girl, my summers were full of my brother’s baseball games. And I enjoyed every second of it. My favorite professional baseball team is the Atlanta Braves, and Chipper Jones, their switch-hitting third baseman, is my favorite ball player. As all players do, Jones retired…

DIY Gifts to Sew for a Baby Boy

I’ve waited quite a while to write this post because I didn’t want to ruin any surprises for my sister-in-law! She and my brother are expecting their first baby in the fall, and we had a baby shower for her last weekend. They are expecting a little baby boy, and I’ve been searching Pinterest for goodies to sew. I found…
