ALL the Stocking Stuffers

Stocking Stuffers tend to be my last minute gifts, but I love finding fun and unique items to stuff in my husband’s stocking and not just “fluff”.  My mom always stuffed our stockings with the best stuff:  our favorite lipgloss, facial moisturizer, gift cards, etc… Some years if it has been last minute, my husband and I both have simply…

Drift Away

Honestly, going into this I was skeptical of the whole experience.  I had never even heard of a float spa, but I am all about anything therapeutic and relaxing.  If the name has “spa” in it, then I am in.  I was super excited when Drift Float Spa opened up in the neighborhood.  First, it was one of my favorite…

Friendship & Our 10 Year Reunion

This post is taking a little bit of a different weekend recap spin.  We had our 10 year reunion and Homecoming this weekend at Wofford College, and it got me thinking more about friendship.  Unfortunately, not all of our closest friends from college could make it, but we still decided to go and make the most of it.  And going…
