Tomato Soup: Homemade & Freezer Friendly

Tomato Soup: Homemade & Freezer Friendly

Tomato soup and grilled cheese is a personal go-to of mine during Lent. This year I decided to opt out of buying pre-made, canned soups and try my hand at a hearty homemade tomato soup. Don’t get me wrong, we eat canned soup from time to time and I have nothing against it! I just […]

Life Lately: Back On Track

Life Lately: Back On Track

I’m writing this as I sit at my son’s kitchen play set watching Curious George. This tiny chair sits about eight inches off the floor, and let me tell you, it’s getting harder and harder for this pregnant mama to get back up! But he asked me to sit with him this morning and have […]

Fast From Complaints

Fast From Complaints

Happy March! Lent began yesterday and I decided this year I would give up complaining as one of my “sacrifices.” No, I don’t consider myself a “complainer” and honestly most of the time I’m that annoying optimistic type. Glass = half-full! 🙂 I just felt like it would be a good way to really listen to […]

Our driveway had puddles in it for the first time in a long time yesterday! I’m starting to get a serious case of spring fever and I so enjoyed the calm and rainy day we had yesterday. The sun is shining and the weather is warming up again here this week. Last week I traveled […]

Life Lately: Pics & Presents

Life has been flying lately. I’m sure you can relate. Tis the season I suppose! But every night when the Christmas lights come on, we seem to somehow slow it all down. I’m so looking forward to the “holiday break.” More time with my family, baking, nesting, parties, movies, wrapping gifts… I’m excited for it […]

Be Thankful For The Chores

Be Thankful For The Chores

I walked down our dark driveway last night after dinner to retrieve mail from our overflowing mailbox. I’m sure our mailman was about to cuss me. I don’t even know how he was still managing to add anything to it! It was definitely a testament to how busy this past week was and how neglected the daily routine […]
