This summer I decide I would try my hand at a little gardening. My mother and grandmother are fabulous in this area, I was praying I inherited their green thumb. I used to hate it but now that I am older and I really wanted some pretty plants on our screened in porch. So I decided to give it a try and off to Lowes I went. I started off with a few ivy plants and geraniums. Then for our anniversary Bob bought me some impatients and a hydrangea plant (which is my favorite flower). I also planted some herbs which have been wonderful especially the sweet basil.

My escape is our screened in porch. We recently got some new chairs and I bought some fabric to make some pillows and such for the outdoor space. I can not wait for fall so that it is a little cooler and I can enjoy being out there longer than these hot days. For most of the summer these flowers were beautiful but sadly I think combined with the intense heat and possible overwatering they are not as pretty now but for a while I had my first little flower "garden". I really enjoyed my fist gardening expirience but sadly I am not sure I inherited the wonderful green thumb. We will see next year.

Summer Days:

One of my favorite things about this summer was my beach trip with my family in June. It was so nice to get away for a week and be surrounded by the ones you love. Sadly Bob couldn't join us due to his work schedule. I went to Panama City Beach with my parents, sister, cousin, and Nana. It was beautiful despite the reports of oil washing up on the west end of the beach. We saw no oil just sunshine and beautiful white sandy beaches. Another great part of this trip was a visit from one of my best friends Becca who drove over to spend the night with us. On father's day Erica, Brain, Aiden, Mrs. Judy and Mr. Wayne came down. Overall it was a WONDERFUL trip!

I just love my family to pieces! What a great summer memory. What was you favorite thing from this summer?

Miss Us?

Hey Y'all! Did you miss us? I know you missed Izzy's sweet face, right? We took a blogging vacation this summer but we are back. Things have been busy around here and we had a wonderful summer. I went on a ladies retreat, we celebrated our anniversary, and  I headed south for a beach vacation just to name a few things that went on. This summer was also filled with a lot of work. Summer is coming to a close this week as Bob resumes classes at Southeastern Seminary. He has another full load so please pray for him as he begins this semester. I really wish it would cool off here it has been hot! Has it been hot where you are? I am so excited about the things going on in our life right now. We are trying to settle in to the back to school routine which is always a little crazy and I happy to be blogging again. I really missed the blogging world the past few months. On this happy update there is also a sadness. A family very close to us is dealing with tragedy. Last month they delt with the death of one set of parents and a month to the day they are dealing with another. Our hearts are broken for them and we ask that you please lift up the Miller family. We know God is the great comforter and although we do not understand He is still on the throne and by our side.
