My husband and I just got back from our vacation in Savannah, GA. We have lived in the south for almost 7 years and this is the first time that we have made it over to Georgia's coast. Savannah has a beautiful downtown with so much history! While we were there, we were able to experience a beach wedding...and it was gorgeous! Savannah has actually become a top destination for weddings...and I can see why! With the sand, ocean and beautiful sunset, it is an almost guaranteed perfect place...if the rain holds out! So being inspired by the beach, I thought I would share with you the colors of the beach that can be perfect for a wedding, or any party being held near the ocean!

Pray for the Chapmans

For those of you who know my me, you know that my family adopted a beautiful little girl from China a few years ago. So this is why the story below makes me so sad...we can relate to how the Chapman family is feeling right now:

NASHVILLE, TN...5/21/08... At approximately 5pm on the afternoon of Wednesday May 21st, Maria Sue Chapman, 5 years old and the youngest daughter to Steven and Mary Beth Chapman was struck in the driveway of the Chapman home in Franklin, TN. Maria was rushed to Vanderbilt Childrens Hospital in Nashville, transported by LifeFlight, but died of her injuries there. Maria is one of the close knit family’s six children and one of their three adopted daughters.
More than five years ago, Chapman and his wife MaryBeth founded The Shaohannah’s Hope Ministry after bringing their first adopted daughter, Shaohannah, home from China. The ministry’s goal is to help families reduce the financial barrier of adoption, and has provided grants to over 1700 families wishing to adopt orphans from around the world. Chapman is a five-time GRAMMY ® winner and 54-time Dove Award winning artist who has sold over 10 million albums and garnered 44 No. 1 singles.

The Chapman family will need a lot of prayers but are asking if anyone feels the need to send anything, please only make donations to the Shaohannah's Hope organization to help others financially in adopting their children.

I love these rings! Guys, you definitely need to think about these Fay Cullen rings for your special girl. It would make a great engagement ring, anniversary gift, or just because you love her gift! I know that I would love to have a ring like this (hint for the hubby!)

Don Ledford Party!

I had the opportunity to plan and coordinate the most fabulous event this past weekend. It was a 40th birthday celebration / Cadillac event for Don Ledford. With only a month to throw it all together, I will say that it turned out absolutely fantastic! The Ledford's were wonderful to work with and they seem to have great friends who made sure they celebrated his 40th with style. The event was held in Cleveland, TN at the Museum Center at 5 Points. Thanks to Michelle McKibben Photography ( for these fab photos!

Tag Update

Okay, so maybe I need my eyes checked. Either that or I need to slow down when I blog. I didn't even realize that the songs that I was supposed to put down in the recent "Tagged by Lucky" post was something that I was embarrassed about. Here is my updated "embarrassed" list. :)
1. Part of Your World - Yes, that is still on the list. haha..
2. Let's Give Them Something To Talk About - I can't help it, when this song comes on..I just want to sing real loud! And if you know me...that is always bad because I can't sing at all!!
3. Circle of Friends - this is an old song but still I just love it. It actually reminds me of a time where I was greatly stabbed in the back by one of my closest friends (actually my college roommate). I had to get away so I drove up to Ohio where my true friends were. On the way there, I put this song in and knew that everything was going to be okay...because I actually had the best friends in the world...even though they were a couple hundred miles away!
4. MMMBop - yep..embarrassed about that one.
5. Dirty - This song by Christina Aguilera is hard for anyone not to like. Even though there are people out there that say that it is a "filthy" song...come on..we all know we wish we could be that outspoken! haha...
As I said in my last post, I am a first time tagger. I'll get the hang of it one of these days :)
