Day 18- Sisters

Sunday, November 18th, 2012

Having a sister is like having a best friend you can’t get rid of.  You know whatever you do, they’ll still be there.  ~Amy Li

Today I am thankful for my sisters. At times growing up I wished I was an only child. (more…)

There aren’t enough days in the weekend.  ~Rod Schmidt

Today I am thankful for weekends. More than being thankful for weekends, I am thankful that my job allows me to enjoy weekends off. (more…)

Day 1- My Husband

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

Newlyweds become oldyweds, and oldyweds are the reasons that families work.  ~Author Unknown

Today I am thankful for my wonderful husband, David. I guess after 21.5 years of marriage we could be called oldyweds. (more…)

Family Vacation…. Disney

Friday, July 13th, 2012

Last week we took a family vacation. This vacation was a splurge for us, because we just recently went on a cruise. We don’t normally do two big vacations in one year. However, with this being the first summer in 4 years that I have not been in school we thought it would be fun. Plus Madilyn is the perfect age for her first trip to Disney World. (more…)

Four Years Ago Today…..

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Imagine going from a family of three to a family of four in less than 30 hours with NO ADVANCED notice.  Well that is what happened to our family four years ago today. (more…)

It’s David’s Birthday…

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

Today is David’s birthday. It’s funny as we get older that our birthdays become less and less of a big deal. Even though we no longer make birthdays a big deal I want him to feel special and loved on this special day. Today is his day, and he deserves to have a great day. We have no big plans, no party happening but that does not mean that we still won’t make it a great day full of fun memories. (more…)

No, I’m the lucky one

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Today I’m writing about something that I have grown so tired of hearing. I am not a super hero, I am not wonderful, and I am not a saint just because I have adopted a child. I hear these words often and they make me groan on the inside, while I smile on the outside. (more…)

Lloyd Weekly

Sunday, January 8th, 2012

The first week of January has come and gone. I really hope that the rest of 2012 treats us better than this past week has. Getting the family back into routine has been harder this year than it has been in the past. (more…)

Amicalola Falls

Monday, October 31st, 2011

We had a beautiful day this past Saturday. My sister Deanna and Brother-in-Law Josh were in town for the weekend and the weather was perfect for being outdoors. Since it was the peak of the fall season we decided to take a trip up to Amicalola Falls. We took the scenic route to the falls and enjoyed the county roads and abundance of fall colors. The weather was perfect for a hike and day of family fun. (more…)

A Train Ride

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

“Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn.” Elizabeth Lawrence

This past Saturday we went on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway. I could not have asked for a more perfect day. At the start of our journey the fall air was crisp and cool, but not cold. By the end of our train ride the air was warmer but not too warm. Perfect weather mixed with perfect fall colors made for a perfect day. (more…)
