Hello Blogging World!

I have officially joined the blogging world, so here goes nothing (OR maybe a more fitting saying would be here goes everything). I am a wife, a career-woman and most recently a mom to a sweet little girl, Emery. My husband, John, has lovingly dubbed her the game changer, which couldn't be more accurate.

This blog will be about all my loves in life – friends, fashion, home decorating, traveling, reality TV and Gamecock football – but mostly about my #1 love, my family. 

I thought the best place to start would be to show my life in pictures so you, the blogging world, can get to know me and take a quick peek into my life. So here goes…..

  1. Lori,

    This is a wonderful and special post to start your "blogging career." You know me, I'm emotional, so this post made me tear up a bit. It really shows who you are and how wonderful of a person you are! I am so proud to be your baby sister. You are such a a wonderful wife, mother, and to me, a best friend! I love you so much and am so proud of all of your accomplishments! I cannot wait to read more of your blogs in the future.

  2. Lori, I tried to be the first to comment, but have had technical issues several times. This is the first blog that I have ever looked at, so I am not exactly sure what is appropriate. However, I love your blog and think it is truly the real you. I love you, John, and sweet Emery and will be looking forward to reading more blogs. Love, Dad

  3. Ditto Kissy Cole, tears are rolling down my face, no shame here. I am proud to be the mother of Lori, Kristin and Dena. I love my girls! Lori you are a wonderful young woman, wife and mommy to my precious Emery Kate aka (Emmie Pie). God has blessed you with a terrific husband and a precious baby girl. Life is Good.......

    Love Always,
