5 days until football season!!

Ladies and gentlemen,

Get out your orange and purple! …or whatever colors you choose to sport – haha – during this time of year! It’s time for football! (and tailgating too!) 5 days until my tigers play!


Stay tuned for more from The Olive Shoe coming soon! I fell of the blogosphere last winter. Life happened…my day job got super busy, I now have two neices instead of one, and one super amazing fantabulous fiance! I have definitely been living life to the artfullest!! I just having been posting about it. So many other things have happened – it has been action packed! Van and I were friends for about 5 years until last December when he asked me to go to a golf dinner with him, and sparks flew! It’s been a whirlwind romance, but we are so very excited to tie the knot next April!


I’m currently moving into the house we’ll be living in together once we are married, so posting items of substance may be a little slow yet. However, as I get settled, I plan to post much more regularly! We are gearing up for an exciting football season, deep in the throes of wedding planning, and beginning thinking about future house projects; there will be lots of new material, and I plan to make time to post it all!

(Also had a FABULOUS trip to San Francisco with my Mom this year, which I plan to share some {more} pics from!) Would you believe I haven’t even looked at the pictures from that trip yet from my camera? WHEW! Where has the time gone?

Hope everyone has had a wonderful late winter, spring and summer! Go tigers!! à bientôt j'espère

How have you been? Would love to hear about some of your summer adventures!
