Happy Mother’s Day to all of the women in my life!

                I guess grief comes out differently for everyone.  It also seems to come out at different times for everyone as well.  It’s impacted a lot in my life lately, hence the absence (although I know you’re probably tired of hearing excuses, but I’m going to do better.  Promise.)….

Cookbooks Galore…

Since Beaux with Holy Poached Eggs was talking about cookbooks, it reminded me of how many I actually do have.  It seems to be a thing in the South.  We love to share recipes.  We also love to collect church cookbooks.  The best cookbooks always tend to be ones from the little ol’ church down in…

The only thing I would have changed…

It is with great pains that I write this entry…I AM SO STUFFED!  I feel like what I assume a Thanksgiving Turkey feels like when someone has violently shoved random items inside of it.  Absolutely stuffed!  Ever since I have been working out and watching what I eat again, I have felt vibrant, peppy, and…

It’s not all about the food…

Growing up Mom, Dad and I would always get a fresh Christmas Tree…yes, we would kill a tree annually.  But, I like to look at it as giving the chosen tree a second life.  A future to always be remembered as the tree that brightened up Christmas when gazed upon.  The tree that was decorated with love.  A…
