Georgia font again in Orange for those Auburn Tigers.  They just won the SEC Championship and may go on to the BCS Championship. . .TBD!  

So excited for them.  I just overheard my husband talking about me and it made my heart smile.  He said that I could meet a stranger, begin talking to them and make them feel so comfortable because I give them my whole attention. . .no looking around for "an out" or checking the time or being nonchalant.  I write this not to brag but because I feel I have failed him.  Lately, with all the new technology and distractions, I have found myself occasionally check my phone at a wedding (because of babysitters. . .still no excuse), take pictures of some fab entree at a restuarant (still a no-no) or posting where I am with friends when I should be living in the moment rather than "capturing it" for future memories.  I know that I will forever have the memory, the moment, the words in my mind.  I know that technology may fail us. . .so why do I keep the distractions around!!!!  Help!

Been So Long

Georgia font in pink because Ryan and I had a baby girl! She was born on Thursday, October 27, 2011 at 3:30 p.m. Our sweet Elizabeth Hall Guthrie weighed 7 lbs 4 oz. She was named after my great grandmother, Elizabeth Inez Combs Hall, Ryan's sister Lindsay Elizabeth and Ryan's grandmother, Elizabeth Shultz Guthrie aka Betts! We call her "Bitsy" or "Bits" and she is just the cutest thing ever.

I apologize for the lack of posts! I have been so busy! Who knew with a little baby!!!!!!!

Love y'all bunches,

Officially a Guthrie and Happy New Year

Writing this in Auburn Orange for those wonderful Tigers on January 10th! Still the "Georgia" font because I loooooveee it. I so apologize for not writing sooner, however things have slowed down so I am now able to write. To begin, I GOT MARRIED TO MY BEST FRIEND! Which is amazing because I actually love him more than the day I met him. If you are Rebekah Todd McKinley, you know that I WAS SO HOT FOR HIM THE FIRST TIME I SAW HIM. So to say that I love him even more is spectacular! R arrived home within a month of the wedding, so needless to say, everything was done! Our wedding weekend was better than I dreamed. I would give details but I think that they are so precious and fragile that I rather keep them to myself. But please know that it was our dream come true. Our first Thanksgiving was spent in Georgetown, D.C. and Southern Maryland. Great food and even better company. Then we traveled to Helen, Georgia with my mama, my stepdaddy, my sis, my brother, my brother in law, my niece and R. We had the best time. Lots of wine and food and hot tub. . .Reminds me of a certain Senior Skip Day Weekend in 1998!

Christmas Eve was better than ever. . .nothing like a family hay-ride on the county roads of LaGrange, Georgia with more wine! Although, we had a "baked potato dinner." I hate any kind of potatoes. . .which is not very southern but at least I'll grow them!

We celebrated New Year's Eve in Charleston for R's brother and sister-in-law's 1st anniversary. It was held at the Historic Rice Mill and was absolutely fabulous. I kind of feel like a certain, Blackie Wills may have photos of me cutting a rug on the dance floor. . .which I hope don't appear on FB. We'll see????

Lastly, after all the fog has cleared and all the family has left, I am able to reflect on the first list that I made on this blog. It is humbling to read because those most important 20 things still remain. I have learned as I have gotten older that it really is the simple things that matter most. Not much has changed. I am still blessed with the best and closest family in the world! I am still pleased with ordinary things and amazed at friends and people whom always do right even though it may not be the easiest path.

I leave with this quote for the New Year. . ."Always do right. This will gratify some and astonish the rest."

Many well wishes to everyone!

So Very Excited!

Sooooo, Georgia font again but in brown for my wedding color!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want to preface by stating that I had the very fortunate opportunity to babysit for THE MOST WONDERFUL FAMILY IN THE WORLD! You know how many families have like a good mom or a good dad? Well, this family has both a fabulous mother and a fabulous father! The mother is someone that I looked up to as a college student (and continue to do so) because she had taught children with special needs and understood what and why I was trying to accomplish (and did not ask why) PLUS she had 4 children PLUS she wanted to hold a wedding with brown colortones during Thanksgiving (I almost did ). I fell in love with the idea immediately and now my color scheme will be brown and other natural tones because of her! If you happen to be lucky to meet her; she will be the all-American blonde (true blond) with bright blue eyes and the sweetest, most southern demeonor that you will ever encounter. If you have not already guessed, she is my idol and someone I aspire to be. She probably does not even know it because that is her innocent personality but I have a feeling that her husband and children see exactly what I see. . .Love you, TMA! Can't wait to see you and thank you for everything!

Who Turns Down a Birthday Card?


Who turns down a birthday card? Are you kidding me?

Oh so love my friends and family who are REAL!!!!!!


Elle Adeline Summerlin is Here!

Congratulations to my little sister, Lindsay and her husband, Ashley! My fabulous niece, Elle Adeline, is here. She came on her own and it happened to be my sister's 28th birthday! How cool is that? What a wonderful and memorable birthday present. She is obviously the cutest baby ever. She looked beautiful in her "going home" outfit that I purchased for her when I was on vacation in Fort Lauderdale. Very Fort Lauderdale, too I might add. . .bright paisley print which is just up my sister's alley!

I am so proud of you, Linds! You were truly born to be a mommy! I love y'all all!
