My big sister Lauren and her bf Nathan came to town last week. Having Lauren in town is a wonderful wake-up-to-the-smell-of-coffee-and-bacon kind of time. Because she wakes up and makes coffee and bacon. She is the best big sister ever. 

P.S. Leah had a birthday! Happy 17 you beautiful lady!

We’re going off to have some family time for Labor Day weekend!!

Hope everyone has some fun last days of summer
(unless you are in Savannah. Then you know that you still have months of it left).

This sweet and silly note is from sister Leah a long time ago. Wish it was dated. Wish I knew where I was apparently going. Glad Leah gave me permission to sleep with her bear.

Lauren,

You are so fun, creative, and adventurous.
I miss your amazing cooking and being silly with you.
When you come to Savannah we will find a tree to climb.

They came to help us move last weekend (which was beyond helpful. Not sure how it would have gotten done without them.). When we weren’t hauling furniture up and down three flights of stairs, we were having al fresco dinners, watching Up, eating boiled peanuts (and frozen yogurt, and krispy kreme, and popcorn, and pumpkin bread…) and squealing with excitement about the new place.

Miss ‘em already. Like I always do!

I loved my childhood. If you asked me what things make a childhood great, I would list the following (all major parts of my early years):

-Porches. Preferably with  wooden porch swings and some animals running around.
-Trees. A kid needs a good climbing tree where they can pretend, read, giggle, and spy on or surprise the neighbors.
-Bicycles. Training wheels, denim jumpers, and bare feet optional.
-Books. Some of my favorite feelings of nostalgia come from memories of reading (in a tree, before bed, in the pool, on the porch, in the car…if you know someone who is under 13, please go make them read Nancy Drew and the Babysitter’s Club. Please.)
-Siblings. None of these things would have been as good without my sisters.

*Fourth picture: playing “catch me!” with my granddaddy. It helps if your granddad is handsome, athletic, and patient.
