This summer our family took our first beach vacation just the four of us.  We have been to the beach many times with Court’s parents living in California and then family vacations with them to Mexico.  But, we’ve never taken a true vacation not visiting family or with family.  We’ve heard so many amazing things about 30A (the strip of highway in which the towns Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach, Seacrest, Seaside, and Destin) run along that we had to go ourselves!

Hey y’all!  I’ve had it on my heart to revive this little ‘ol blog of mine.  I’ve been so busy in the day to day tasks of Gray Monroe that juggling it all has been tough.  But, I do miss my creative outlet.

Last week I had the pleasure of being a guest on my friend Jenn Jewell’s podcast The Messy Table.  We chatted about how I started my business, tips and tricks to balance and surviving motherhood, how I became a Christian as an adult, and some trials we’ve walked through in our marriage and how we overcame them.

When you have some time head over to Jenn’s blog and give it a listen



Ella started taking gymnastics last summer and has been begging us for a gymnastics birthday party ever since.  We kept things simple by hosting at the Tulsa World of Gymnastics but my friend Kori of Peacocks and Peonies helped to create some special touches with a custom Birthday Girl leotard and silhouette gymnast cake toppers.

We also added in some other touches like leotard cookies and jump rope party favors.  The kids had an absolute blast.  I won’t be surprised if Ella asks for a gymnastics party every year!

If you don’t know me personally you may not know that my husband and I both grew up competitively skating and currently own a roller skating rink.  So when Hudson decided he wanted to start speed skating my husband jumped at the chance to coach him.  He skated his first speed meet over the weekend and my heart just about burst!

I took some pictures when my in-laws were in town last month.  I adore the ones of them looking on as their son is coaching their grandson.  Especially because Court’s parents were his skating coaches growing up.

Last year Ella and I got to go on the Polar Express with my sweet friends, their girls, and their Dad.  This year, we went as a family.  Ella had a trampoline accident the day before and had broken her arm.  Despite the traumatic day she still wanted to go.  And I’m glad she did because we all really enjoyed it and needed to take our minds off of things.
