We have been delivered of a child! Welcoming with tears of joy – Jack Everest Born March 28, 2016, at 11:53pm (born on his auntie Ervina’s birthday with just minutes to spare!) He weighed a big 8 pounds and 15 ounces, and was 21 inches long. We are overwhelmed with joy at his arrival, and at the precious gift he is to our family! Jack means “Beloved of God,” and Everest is a symbol of strength and majesty, representing our… Read more »

About two weeks ago, my two sisters who live locally hosted a beautiful luncheon for me, in honor of my baby arriving soon. It was hosted at Claudia’s house, which is a gorgeous venue for anything, particularly an event that requires food. :) The luncheon was Yogurt Parfaits that were perfection, with every kind of wonderful topping imaginable, and the best Chocolate Chip Scones made by Liz, and Macaroons (that were eaten so fast by the kiddos present it was… Read more »

I feel like I need to introduce myself again, as I blow off the dust from this blog after, hmmm, 8 months? Hi, I’m Clarita. I used to blog here, ummm, years ago? Remember me? :) The past months have brought big changes to our family – some wonderful and lovely, some adjustments, some tears, but all in all, we know we are where we are supposed to be. Even if it’s no longer at our beloved Southern Cottage (affectionately… Read more »

We are entering a time of much transition and change in our little family. God is directing us, and we are following.  A big move is in the not-so-distant future, and we are saying goodbye to our little cottage and to the people who have made Georgia home for us. There are so many bittersweet emotions I hardly know how to process them. We are sad about who we’re leaving, and we’re excited about what we’re moving to. But Southeast… Read more »

If you ever come to my house and I don’t answer the front door, this is where you’ll find me:   I never knew that an outdoor space could feel like another room in the house, but this area does. I think it’s the pergola that gives it a “room” feel, and even though there are no walls or privacy fences, I can still sit there and feel like I’m in my personal outdoor living room. I cannot even tell… Read more »

You all know by now how much I love my Plexus products. :) Because I’ve experienced such a complete health change, I cannot help but be so grateful! And when I daily hear stories of people being so helped by the products, I’m excited! So I know there are some super healthy people out there and you don’t feel that you need Plexus, and that is just fine. I am so happy for you, that you are healthy and well! But… Read more »

  So when the attic renovations were completed, and a bedroom was made upstairs for the little girls, a little boy suddenly had his own room. For the first time in his nearly-three years! We won’t really discuss whether or not he especially liked this idea, but we can mention that because of having only two bedrooms for all of his life, until now sleeping alone wasn’t an option for him. Now that it IS an option, I’ll venture to… Read more »
