It was so fun to have them home for both big events for dad this year. We love getting together as a family every chance we get and it always involves ...

Hi, friends! Today I’m back sharing more about the Ready to Care initiative and how we can all help our aging seniors.

They are all still living on ...

Welcome to another Fashion over 50! It’s hot y’all! I know I say that a lot, but it’s really hot. We’re half way through the summer and the heat is just kicking up. Heat and humidity, which makes for some sticky outdoor weather. If I’m already sweating for the day I don’t mind being outside, but when I’m dressed in ...

Today’s Feature Friday is really a good one! I found Sandra on Instagram a few months ago and was immediately captivated by her quintessential gray shingled Cape Cod home. She has a blog, but it doesn’t have a lot on there yet, so I pulled information from her page to share with you. I asked her if she would let ...

i2.wp.comfashion-over-50--c91af8ad99e4e0ee33e95471d9a9fc38bd040031

Staying cool is still the name of the game here in Atlanta at the moment! Since we live near the lake, we’re getting afternoon showers about every other day which is good for the plants. Not so good for being outside, but we’ve managed to have some gatherings this summer on our patio space and that’s been fun. Today’s dress ...

Chocolate chips and oatmeal are great together, but Mark is a purist on these. These cookies are Mark’s Nanny’s recipe. One he grew up with as a boy, ...

Happy Friday and the 4th of July weekend!  It’s a hot one here in Georgia and yesterday we rode our bikes to the lake and listened to live music and watched fireworks from our little town of Acworth, so that’s a pretty sweet way to celebrate our patriotic holiday.  Today’s Feature Friday is a new to me gal from Instagram ...
