Where Faith, Food and Life Converge

Sometimes you just NEED a spoonful of Peanut Butter

When I was in college, my dad gave me a check at the beginning of each semester, and it was my job to use it wisely. The check was meant to pay for my tuition, books, housing/rent, food and car. Well, after I got a […]

Monday Mondays 10.5.15

Raise your hand if you’ve you ever felt inundated, confused and distracted.  If you could see me right now, you’d probably see me jumping up and down waving my hands violently like I’m stranded on a desert island and need rescue. No.  Not really.  I mean, […]

I’m Guilty

  If I sat down and listed all the things I do wrong, I probably wouldn’t finish until the day I died. I guess I’m a pretty critical, judgmental person. There.  I’ve said it.  I am;  I’m judgmental and overly critical. A lot. The thing […]

  This past week we did something we have rarely done over the course of our lives – gone to the fair!  Above and beyond that… we even entered something in the fair, and came away with ribbons!  WooHoo! In April, we bought a couple […]

Sometimes it’s the simple things that make your day. Usually, it’s the simple things that make your day, because most days are simple. Most days aren’t red carpet worthy,jump out of an airplane or “make it off the Titanic alive” kinds of days. Most days […]

Celebrations

  That’s the quote on the front of the card we’ll give to our daughter later today. It’s her birthday, and while she is home for the time being, I have a feeling it won’t be for long.  She’s our youngest and after a brief journey […]

Monday Mondays 8.24.15

Last weekend was our anniversary, and we spent it in Chattanooga (#noogastrong!) because it’s close enough to home, yet still feels like a destination trip.  We’ve stayed in Chattanooga a lot, and never at the same hotel or B & B, and always enjoyed the lodging.  Same […]

Monday Mondays 8.10.15

Tell me if you do this too…. when your alarm is set to whatever time, do you wake up before it anyway?  My husband and I had to be up extra early the other morning so I could take him to the airport, and he […]
