• How To Tell A Story Through Decorating

    You know,There are many ways to approach decorating but something that has helped me create a cohesive feel in my home is to tell a story. I want to tell a story that is unique to my family. I know people who decorate to tell the a story of their family’s beliefs. Their walls are covered with scriptures or phrases that reiterate their ethos. Okay, I do a little of that too. Others enjoy decorating with things that point to activities they love.

    Big Batch Southern Style Biscuits made from Scratch

    Southern Style Biscuits are good for so many things. Grab some southern style biscuits and slap an egg and some bacon in the middle.

  • Are You Ever Too Old To Start Something New?

    The little girl walked up the sidewalk to her Grandparents house. She didn’t get to see them very often. Usually, she just watched their game shows with them and sometimes they played cards. But this visit was going to be different. The door opened to smiling faces. Hugs were exchanged and after a few moments her grandparents excitedly invited her to see what they had been up to lately.

  • A Year Filled With Milestones

      … I watched as my husband helped carry the old metal desk that had lived in our son’s room. Jay was on one end. Our son Joey was on the other. They lifted it into the truck. That was it. The last piece of furniture to go to Joey’s new home a few hours away. He towered over us. Young and tall.
