Hey Y'all!

Sorry I haven't been blog visiting much lately - things have been crazy busy in my neck of the woods for the last several weeks!  Hope all is well with you and you are enjoying your summer!

We're heading to Florida tomorrow for awhile, but it's kinda bitter sweet, y'all.  Our dear sil is leaving for a nine month deployment next week so we are looking forward to spending as much time as possible with Bryan before he leaves and then seeing him off....goodbyes are so difficult!  Would appreciate your prayers for him as well as our daughter Katie. Being a military spouse is often a difficult road and deployments can be tough.

After Bryan has departed, we are looking forward to alot of beach time...whoo! hooo!  My fav place is chilling beneath the Jacksonville Beach pier and taking long walks on the beach....nothing beats ocean breezes and sand between my toes, y'all!

And Katie and I are also looking forward to having some serious retail therapy fun at our fav outlet malls in St. Augustine, FL!...Luv St. Augustine!!!  And maybe in Orlando, too!  

And then! Whooo! Hooo!.....I'm planning on taking a road trip of my own to Charleston and Savannah while my hubs does some fishing..can't wait!!!!!.....

And last and certainly NOT least.....This Georgia gal's gotta get her fill of the South and alot of Southern cookin' while she can......Lord knows, I can't get cheese grits, fried chicken, down home grown veggies, biscuits and gravy and sweet potato pie and real sweet tea in Arizona....mercy y'all!

So after I've spent just about every waking moment at the beach,  shopping, eating and road tripin', I guess I'll have to head back home to Phoenix where it will probably be a blazing 112 degrees and get back on my diet (arg!) and start counting the days until I can head back south again, y'all!  :))

See ya when I get back!!

 Sweet Blessings!
Pin It!

So glad that you get to enjoy the summer. Sounds like lots of fun filled days. Will be remembering your SIL during this time. It is so very hard to say such goodbyes. I pray the Lord's mighty hand be upon his comings and his goings. May He go before him and light the darkness around him. May He keep his foot from slipping. May He be the lifter of his head and give him His peace.

Blessings to you and yours, Jackie

What fun you have on the horizon. Hubby and I went to Charleston in April and had an absolutely wonderful time!

Blessings to your SIL as he goes on behalf of our country.

You'll have lots and lots to share when you return and we'll look forward to hearing and seeing.

Praying for Katie & Bryan for God's protection and strength. So hard to say goodbye. Have fun in the south; I think the closest thing that comes to southern food in AZ is Marie Calendar's. Triple digits await your return my friend!

Thanks for the video and prayer. It blesses and encourages to know someone cares. I'm from the south, also. Louisiana and I understand that southern that southern accent and that good southern food. Bless you and your family.

Hi Jackie,

Just popping in to say Hi and hopeful that all is well with you and your family.

I pray a hedge of protection over Bryan and your daughter and family. Thank Bryan for his service! I appreciate him and your daughter --the sacrificing they are both making.

I hope you enjoyed your shopping, beach time and all that good eating!!!

Blessings to you!

Hey Jackie... just checking in. I wanted you to know that my 2nd book released this week, "Beyond Cancer's Scars: Laying Claim to a Stronger Spirit." I pray it will be an encouragement to anyone who is facing a struggling/suffering season.

I'd love for you to stop by and see the book trailer. Hope you are well.
