A Different Kind of Christmas

A Different Kind of Christmas

Anita Renfroe posted a song recently, by a Christian artist familiar to me, named Mark Schultz.  Reluctant to listen, knowing full well that I’d find myself in a puddle of tears by the end of the song, I debated.  See, the song was prefaced with something like, “for those of you missing loved ones this … Continue reading

Christmas 2013 Part II.

Christmas 2013 Part II.

After the gifting was finished, we all sat down together for a lovely brunch. The gold-rimmed glasses with orange juice always make the perfect finishing touch to the table on Christmas morning!  There was baked stuffed french toast (complete with raspberry pudding drizzle), a ham, egg, & cheese bake with hash browns on the bottom, … Continue reading

Christmas 2013.

Christmas 2013.

Yes, it is 2014 and I am FINALLY getting the time to post about Christmas (last year ;))  On Christmas Eve, the same as every other year, we traveled to Lancaster to visit and have “Christmas” with my Dad’s side of the family. We surprised my grandparents with a large collage photo of all the … Continue reading

Enough.

Enough.

My daily devotional struck me pretty directly this morning.  See, I have a weakness for fashion and clothing.  It’s the only thing I really spend money on, other than food, bills, and tithing.  In fact, if you follow me on Pinterest, you can probably attest to my ridiculous amount of “Threads & Accessories” pins.

More Important Than Halloween.

More Important Than Halloween.

Halloween this year wasn’t quite the same as years past.  This year, we weren’t sitting at home waiting for the adorable little trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood to come by our new house for candy.  This year, we had the privilege of sitting in Hershey Park Stadium, watching my baby sister and the Halifax Girls’ Soccer … Continue reading

Labor Day Loving.

Labor Day Loving.

Allow me to put a disclaimer on this post by starting off with the fact that I, am by no means, a “TV person”.  I don’t particularly enjoy it much at all.  There are very few shows that can capture my attention long enough, or that I like enough to “make time” to watch.  Once … Continue reading

The Fabulous Fourth.

The Fabulous Fourth.

Before I get started with all the fun we’ve had over the 4th of July, I’d like to thank all of the men & women who brought us our freedom.  I pray that our country will be God fearing in the future and the our leaders always remember the faith and values that our country … Continue reading

Mother’s Day Weekend 2013

Mother’s Day Weekend 2013

Jarid and I haven’t had a date night in quite awhile.  We decided that dinner, froyo, and a Redbox was just what the doctor ordered on Friday night, so when we both got home from work, we headed to The Pizza Grille for some grub. For six consecutive years, The Pizza Grille had been voted … Continue reading
