I have a book problem. And a shelf solution.

So I have these two bookshelves and I’ve had the same two bookshelves for about ten years. LITERALLY. I bought them when I started teaching school in the fall of 2003. In fact, remind me to tell you the story of how I had them in my 5th grade classroom and I let a kid

What I’m Watching.

I hate to tell you this, but I am not overly excited about the winter Olympics. Here’s the thing. I grew up in Georgia and I live in Tennessee. We don’t grow up learning to ski or snowboard or do anything wrapped in layers on top of ice. I mean, God bless my people in

What I learned from a burst pipe.

It’s cold in Nashville. Like single digits cold and we do not know what to do with our lives except hole up and stay home and instagram pictures of a snowflake or a screenshot of the weather app saying “yes, world. It’s THIS COLD in Nashville.” I’m going to tell this story short and sweet:

What is 2014 for you?

2014 came in like a lamb. Where in years past, we’ve dressed to the nines and danced until our feet were dirty and brown and exhausted, rolling home in the 1s or 2s after celebrating all night with friends, this year was different. We ordered pizza. We put together a puzzle of a New England

Where have I been?

I feel like I owe you an apology. Though the last few days have been better, I have not been the best blogger recently. I rocked that 31 Ways to Speak Love in October but then sorta took a nosedive into oblivion and haven’t kept up well. So. Here’s why. This fall was busy, in a

I love ornaments.

First, I have to tell you a story. Last week, we had our small group snoozle. [I can’t wait to tell you about it next week.] And instead of exchanging gifts, we exchanged ornaments. Because my gals are building their personal ornament collections, I think it’s fun to exchange those- $5 limit. Me being annoying

Merry Christmas from Dave Barnes.

Well, I’ve watched it thrice and I’m still dying laughing. Enjoy. And pick up Dave’s new Christmas album, A December To Remember. It’s insanely good. . . . . . I’m listening to a different Christmas album every morning as I get ready. It’s my own special way of convincing myself to get out of

Once Upon A Time.

Seriously. Are any of y’all watching this show? Or Once Upon A Time in Wonderland? I’m obsessed with both. Here’s why: The characters are familiar to me [us] because they are fairy tale characters, for the most part. Except Emma and Henry. But whatever. And so because they are familiar, you have a full story
