A couple of weeks ago Tim and I celebrated our 11 year anniversary with a fly fishing trip to Georgia.
We had an absolute blast!!!
Fishing with Will Taylor was my favorite day on the water to date.
We snagged several large rainbows and hooked into some massive 30" brown trout.
Having dinner afterwards with him and his fiance Lesa was also a highlight.
This girl currently holds the record for the largest brown trout caught in the state!
So impressed by her fly fishing skillz.
To book a trip email Lesa at lesa@flyshopco.com

{Gratitude Lately}

Friday, April 29, 2016


Lately we've been thankful for dessert before dinner.


For an afternoon of planting that ended after dark.


For witching hour with the muscle sprout whisperer.


For Brookville browns on a Friday night.


And for front porch sits while waiting for out-of-town family to arrive.
Here's to gratitude and how it turns everything into enough.
Happy Friday, brave ones.
What have you been thankful for lately?

Your laugh is better than bacon!

I had the privilege of writing a blog post for Orvis this week about being an outdoor mama.
Here's to creating more family experiences on the water and to raising the next generation
of kids who can identify a brown trout before they are potty trained!
You can read the article HERE.
Happy Wednesday, y'all!

Happy Cock-a-doodle TWO, Brave!
We loved celebrating your life with family and friends today.
You ate cake in your birthday suit & wore a pink cowgirl hat that gave Annie Oakley a run for her money.
Your life is a gift.
Thank you for sharing it with us!
Love you more than balloons that fly way to be with Jesus.

{Marriage Market}

Monday, April 25, 2016


This short documentary features women in Shanghai deemed “Sheng-Nu” or “Leftover Women” simply because they don’t conform to social pressure to marry by the age of 25.
I was left in tears by the end!
Definitely worth 4 minutes of your time.

Had you told me a year and a half ago Tim would have rock hard abs and place 3rd in his first
ju jitsu tournament I would have said you were joking.
Beyond proud of my dude for working so hard this weekend, especially these past 18 months!
So much respect for you, Timosabi.

{Pippa & Els Go Fishing}

This video of Pippa's first trout made me so happy!
I was also encouraged to hear that Orvis will be donating $1 {up to $10,000} to
Casting for Recovery each time this video is shared.

Patrick Fulkrod is as good as they come, y'all.
This was my third time to fish with Patrick and he made it a memorable day on the SOHO as usual!
It's no surprise he won Orvis Guide of the Year (and it isn't because he shows up early with our favorite donuts, or because he's one of the most optimistic people you'll ever meet).
It's because of his humility, professionalism, and giftedness of putting clients on fish.
If you're ever looking for a guided trip in TN, Patrick Fulkrod is worth his weight in brown butter gold!
Email him at: patrick@southholstonrivercompany.com
{Past fly fishing trips with Patrick can be viewed HERE and HERE}Happy Thursday y'all!
The weekend is almost here!

{3 Mamas + 3 Toddlers Road Trip} Curtis Creek

Tuesday, April 12, 2016











Curtis Creek is one of my favorite small streams in North Carolina to fish!
Taking Heidi, August, Mols, Rowan, Twinner and Brave there was a highlight of our road trip for me.
We caught bows and brookies while the kids splashed, crashed, and had a blast.
So thankful to get outside with this crew.
Happy Tuesday, brave ones!

{3 Mamas + 3 Toddlers Road Trip} TN & NC Bound

Monday, April 11, 2016


















Three mama's traveling with three toddlers under 2 means lots of laughs, tears, poopy diapers,
donuts, cold beer, and Goldfish. LOTS of Goldfish!
We managed to have full nets at Stoney Creek with several wild bows and browns.
Elizabethton, TN was beyond good to us!
Happy Monday, y'all.
How was your weekend??
