My Resolution: Baking Challenge

My Resolution: Baking Challenge

Yesterday, the first day of what is to be the best year yet (I seriously LOVED 2017 so 2018 has a big shoes to fill), I read post after post of New Years Resolutions and tried my best to muster up a few of my own. I had nuthin’. I have some big plans for the year starting with using my recently acquired real estate license and growing this life and home blog. I’m just not a resolutions kinda gal it seems, but…

Christmas is the time of year…

Ray Charles said, “Christmas is the time of year, for being with the ones you love.” I was fortunate to have been able to fulfill Mr. Charles’s Christmas prophesy this year, but unfortunately not with the Spirit of Christmas that he was likely singing about. I’ve never been one to fully get into the Christmas spirit; always just getting by with as little decor as possible and fretting and complaining about what to get for others. I usually end up having a Blue, Blue, Blue, Blue Christmas by the time the day has come and gone because I’ve reached a max on just how much over-doing I can take. It’s no secret…

Sister Birthday Tribute

You look like you’re 25!

She’s not 25 anymore. She’s 26 today. And as beautiful as she was the day our grandpa nearly rolled out of his chair laughing at her new hairdo. She
may have been 14 or 15; I don’t remember now, but she’d colored her hair or cut it and our dear sweet and unfiltered patriarch of the family thought this was the funniest thing since Barney Fife. You just had to be there.

I don’t remember the day…
