Book Review – Disillusioned

Ok folks…summer took a serious toll on this gal. Kids…everywhere. Productivity…nowhere! I have so many books that I was given copies of, in return for an honest review here in my space on the interwebs…and I’m sooooo far behind! But, I have to tell you, the most recent book I read, Disillusioned by Christy Barritt […]

Book Review – More Than Rivals

Hi Friends! Over the past 4-5 years, I’ve had the opportunity to read and review several books. The books are always given to me, and in return, I provide an honest review here. This time, I have the honor and privilege to write my husband’s words here for the review of the book More Than […]

Scrumptious Blueberry Cobbler

Whenever we have family and friend gatherings, one of my most requested dishes is my blueberry cobbler.

Dear Mother…

Recently, a book came across my radar. It’s called ‘The Mother Letters.’ You can read more about it and purchase it on Amazon.

Summer Fun

Well, mamas of school-aged kiddos, that time is upon us…summer…in some households, I think it could be considered a curse word! 🙂 For our house, this is the first time since I’ve been a mama I’m not working full-time this summer. The work that I will be doing is part-time (and I can take the […]
