The In-Between.

The In-Between.

My last post gave you a glimpse of what Christmas looked like for my family this year, but there was much more that went on between the tree-hunting, decorating, cookie-baking, gift-giving, and picture-taking than was documented, so this post will be filling in the gaps. In case I haven’t written about it, June of 2014, … Continue reading

Recipes from Your Heart

Recipes from Your Heart

I haven’t mentioned this on the blog yet, but that’s only because everything has happened so quickly.  Last Tuesday, my Godfather (TT), was taken to the ER via ambulance.  I’ve mentioned him several times on the blog before, and he holds a very special place in my heart. Anyway, he’s had a pretty deep history … Continue reading

The Happiest 5K on the Planet – JOIN ME!

I’ve been hearing all kinds of awesome things about The Color Run from friends and bloggers who have done it themselves.  The first time I’d witnessed the excitement of The Color Run, was in Philly on a trip that Jarid & I took together.  I believe it was a Sunday morning, when we headed to … Continue reading

Oh Nuts!

Oh Nuts!

My sweet friend, Sam at OH! Nuts, sent me an email a few weeks ago, asking if I’d like to try out a couple products from his site to blog about… YES PLEASE 🙂  Oh! Nuts has quite a variety to choose from, so it took me a little while to decide!  They’ve got bulk … Continue reading

Seasonal Preparation.

Seasonal Preparation.

This time of year, everyone’s “to-do” lists seem to be a mile and a half long.  There is always something to be done.  While I adore all things Christmas, I am not a fan of the cold, the insane shopping malls (and people), or icy roads.  Biggest pet peeve = incompetent drivers.  As a Christian, … Continue reading

Thanksgiving 2013

I can’t believe it’s here.  December.  Wasn’t it just yesterday I was posting about Halloween??  It sure feels like it…yet, last weekend, I found myself on a Christmas tree hunt with our family and enjoying Thanksgiving dinner around a full table, not once, not twice, but three times… Even my nails are looking festive. I … Continue reading

A Quarter of a Century.

A Quarter of a Century.

What is it that I’ve learned in 25 years? I know for a fact that I won’t be able to encompass everything into this short post, but here are a few of the important ones. #1- The only person who can fulfill all of your needs and will never fail you, hands down, is Jesus.  … Continue reading

B is for Birthday.

B is for Birthday.

It’s official.  As I mentioned earlier, the littlest Cox sister has officially turned 17 as of Wednesday last week.  Completely hard to believe.  This picture is when we serenaded her as she arrived home from her picnic date with the boyfriend.  She had no idea we were standing just inside the entry way with cupcakes … Continue reading

Gluten-Free Spinach & Pea Pesto Pasta Salad

Gluten-Free Spinach & Pea Pesto Pasta Salad

Every summer I seem to have a favorite food discovery.  One that really hits the spot in the midst of the heat, humidity, and sunshiny weather. This year, I’m declaring that food, Gluten-Free Spinach & Pea Pesto Pasta Salad (try saying that five times fast!) I made it once, so far, for Bowman’s birthday party, … Continue reading
