So, remember how I posted about the snow we had last week?

It was super pretty but didn't seem to be lasting very long, right?

Yeah, by the weekend it was gone and we were outside in shorts. 

Gotta love winter in the Carolinas. You just never know what you're going to get. 

This week has been a little chilly so far but not too bad. I am so ready for Spring time!

In other news, I'm pretty excited about what's going on in my back yard! We are finally getting a fence AND a new deck. The old "deck was basically just a pre-made stairway they threw up. No one even bothered to anchor it or put it in the ground in anyway. It was falling apart and really sad looking. This one will be much bigger and we can actually enjoy sitting outside on it.

I'll update you again when it's done! Hopefully that will be by the end of the week.

Hello snowy days!

Snow has come down on the Carolina's for the second time this Winter. We missed the first round in December because we were off camping. All we got at the campground was an icy, slushy, cold mess. 

Any way, this time we have been able to enjoy it more. It was the nice fluffy snow that we rarely get around here. You can't build anything with it but it's still fun to play in. 

Even our pups had a blast!

 Sadly, it doesn't seem like this round of snow will stick around long. 

Just long enough to keep the kids out of school for the week 😉

Until next time Southern Snowmegedden!

This past June David and I celebrated our tenth wedding anniversary.
Time really does fly. I still feel like those 19/20 year olds that melted on that hot beautiful day while giving themselves to each other. Just a few kids more and a whole lot wiser. 

Although the past ten years haven't been all sunshine and rainbows the majority has been great. We've learned a lot and grown a lot. Grown mentally, physically, and family wise. That's what life and marriage are about, right?? It's been a roller coaster but in the end I've enjoyed the ride so far. Despite the bruises we've acquired.

Anyway, we had so many plans for our tenth anniversary. We wanted to go to Europe and explore for a week or so. Those plans were thrown out, though, when the surrogacy ended up taking longer than expected. I was not allowed to leave the country while I was pregnant. So we thought about going to Vegas or somewhere else pretty far off from where we normally travel. That didn't pan out either because I didn't want to be so far away while I was pregnant with twins and didn't want to leave the kids for that long. 

In the end we ended up going to Savannah, Georgia.

It was such a good choice! It was beautiful there. We both love historical places so it was perfect for our curiosities.

We ended up taking the camper down and staying at Skidaway Island State Park. This was great because we not only saved money but got to sleep somewhere we knew. I seriously am not a huge fan of hotels anymore. You just never know for sure how clean everything is and who has done what in the bed you're sleeping in. 

   While there we explored the city on a on and off trolley tour. 
We didn't have to worry about parking all day and got some history while on the ride.

We went on a ferry ride down the Savannah River,
We rode the Georgia Queen at Savannah Riverboat Cruises.

We toured the new Prohibition Museum, which was really really cool. Way more interesting than we first expected. 

We went on a Ghost & Gravestones trolley tour. We were able to explore the Andrew Low house and stop by the Perkin’s and Sons Ship Chandlery. 

We ate at the Pirate House and The Lady & Sons. Pirate House was great but I was a little disappointed in The Lady & Sons. My meal was't very good and David's was ok. I think I just expected fresher tasting food from there.

In and amongst those things we just explored the city. 

It was a great little getaway. It is definitely worth visiting and visiting again. We plan to go back with kids. We also plan to add in Tybee Island next time. 

Until Next Time! Muah! 😘
