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

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

The Countdown Is On

Thanksgiving this year was a lot like last year.  We went to Jarid’s Dad’s family get-together for our afternoon meal, and then to my Momma’s house for dinner.  I even made the same dish (talk about a creature of habit).  Actually, it was Jarid’s request.  He enjoyed it last year! I forgot while I was … Continue reading
